Have you ever wanted to build yourself a robot? How about a couple of robots? Ugears and its new model, the Robot Factory of the Mechanical Town collection, gives you a great opportunity to do it.
The Robot Factory, officially known in the Town as the Mechanical Wonder Works, is very much what both of its names imply: it is a model of a factory that produces robots and undoubtedly, a wonder of wooden mechanics. The model features a steampunk style workshop with a fully functional assembly line to help you build your robots: arrange the parts of the robot in proper places along the line, wind it up, push the button, and – voila! – your automatic assembly line produces a mechanical wooden robot, all new and ready to serve whatever ingenious game plan you have in mind.
The settings of the Robot Factory Model represent a production facility with its main mechanical block running on Geneva drive. The assembly line is designed to automatically implement a semi knock-down assembly of robots. After initial preparation, the wind-up mechanism of the line will complete the assembly. The Factory design allows you to observe moving axles and gears working on the final product. In the end, all you need to do is to throw in a couple of gears to fix the robot’s arms and legs in place, and your new mechanical assistant is ready to go explore Mars or – help you to put another one like itself together!
The Robots have articulated legs and arms joints, capable of body rotation and come with a control cabin.
The rest of the Factory includes a monorail running along the perimeter with a forklift to deliver spare parts and tools, a ramp for the vehicles, miniature figures of workers, and small freight crates. To make the spirit of a solid industrial facility complete, the Factory is equipped with a fascinating decorative Stirling steam engine.
Made of plywood to be assembled without glue or special tools, The Robot Factory Model opens a whole new level of interactivity: Ugears traditionally provides an ever-exciting process of assembly expanding the gaming constituent now with the machines building machines!
