Our Hardware

We've gone through great lengths to design, manufacture, and source only the highest quality components

Aluminum Extrusions

These anodized beams serve as both the primary structural element of FarmBot and its linear guide system, allowing precise movements in the X, Y, and Z directions.

“They look incredible!”

Plates and Brackets

Our plates and brackets are stamped and machined out of high grade aluminum alloys. Then they are tumble polished to remove burrs, sandblasted to remove surface defects, and anodized to achieve a premium aesthetic and feel.

“They don’t only look good. They feel really solid, like they will last a century.”

Plastic Parts

Our plastic components have been injection molded with tough UV resistant ABS.

"The neutral gray finish looks professional without standing out in the garden."

Hardware

All fasteners are made of stainless steel, allowing them to stand up to the outdoor environment without rusting or corroding.

“In addition to what is required for assembly, we include extra fasteners with every kit so that you are prepared to modify and expand upon your FarmBot’s abilities right out of the box.”

Electronics

Our custom Farmduino electronics board features a dedicated processor for monitoring the rotary encoders at high speed, while the Raspberry Pi 3 serves as the web-connected brain.

"The electronics box features five LED push buttons and four LED indicator lights to give you more control. E-stopping, turning on lights, or initiating a demo are just some the possibilities."

Motors

FarmBot is powered by four NEMA 17 stepper motors with pre-mounted and tested rotary encoders.

“It was important for us to integrate rotary encoders into the FarmBot design so that its movements are reliable, even in an unpredictable garden environment.”
