You recently requested a quotation on our model Stanford Arm.
Vicarm proposes to deliver two model Stanford Arms, complete with
hand and optical encoders for the first three joints (similar to the
arm kit you have recently completed). These arms will be supplied
with our standard power supply which includes power amplifiers for
all seven joints, plus all the logic for operating the arm in manual
control mode and switching to computer control mode. Hardware servos
are not included in this package.
The price for two arms, delivered with the above equipment, is
The price for an individual arm delivered as above, is
Should you desire the hardware servo package, the additional
cost is $5,000 for one arm and $8,000 for two arms.
You have also requested an opinion regarding exchanging your,
as yet undelivered, model M.I.T. arm for a Stanford Arm Kit (encoder
version). We will be willing to do this with the following
understanding. The purchase price for the kit will be $9,000 if no
completed arms are ordered, and $8,000 if one or more complete arms
are ordered by CSL within 90 days of kit order. These prices require
that the kit be manufactured at CSL and partial payment of $5,000 is
made immediately after delivery of all bearings and joint 1 and 2
motor assemblies. The contents of the kit will be the same as in the
kit you ordered last year, execpt that an updated set of drawings,
reflecting recent improvements, will be provided.
I hope that this letter answers most of your questions. Should
you want any furthur information please feel free to contact me again.\.
