SignArm / Mechanical arm


In the workplace, many important documents and contracts need a handwritten signature to make this document effective. If the signatory is absent, the important document cannot be signed. Many important documents cannot be signed by outsiders, which will lead to many important tasks cannot be implemented and proceeded. That is very inconvenient. SignArm is a mechanical arm device, which is designed for synchronous signature in real time based on Internet technology and intelligent robot technology. This product can simulate the signatory’s action synchronously in real time and complete the signature work as the signatory.
