Online metals is a great place to get the raw materials for your robot because they specialize in sales of small quantities. They stock aluminum and steel in every size and shape you might need. Titanium and tool steel are also available for the high-performance builder, and so is polycarbonate (Lexan). They also have a great selection of 4130 Chromoly tubing, and convenient "Metal Pack" assortments.
Robot builders often find that the trickiest part of a robotics project is making the wheels. First you need to find a suitable tire/wheel combination, then you must figure out a way to attach a sprocket so that it will handle the torque of a geared-down drive motor. The BattleKits wheel/sprocket/bearing combination will solve that problem for you!
The BattleKits Modular Drive Units will make it easy to get your robot rolling. With these modules you can easily construct a mobile platform that is exactly the length and width you need. It includes a 10.1" length of 3" extruded square tubing. The tube houses a two-stage chain-and-sprocket speed reducer and a 4" wheel.
This unit is even easier to use than a motor with a built-in gear head because our modular drive unit also includes a wheel. Just bolt it in place, plug it in, and go!
AmpFlow makes high-quality, high-performance motors designed specifically for BattleBots. Take a look at the specifications of these motors. We think that you'll agree that they are the ultimate motors for robots!
