Use Dobot Magician to press the button?


I have a device with a usual push button (e.g. home button on Android phone or iPhone, or something similar).
Could I use the Magician to push the button on the device? Does it have enough force in z-axis to push it (standard switches require around 3N force)?

Thank you for your answer!


Dobot has force to even drill a hole through table (it has massive stepper mottors). Few times I’ve made some programming mistakes, and it slam ground pretty badly, so I assume it shouldn’t has problems with buttons.


Hello, pressing a key is no problem.
I use the Magican to operate e.g. also keys of a metal keyboard. I just don’t know if the life span of the Magican joints is reduced by pressing the keys. In another application, a key is pressed on a touch screen. Here I used a soft pen, which gives slightly. Greetings
