Planning your robotics stock can be difficult – especially for open-ended classroom challenges or building for competition. You might not need another full set, but buying items piece by piece can be downright annoying.
MAX Structure Pack
The building blocks of a TETRIX MAX robot are these metal pieces, including channels, flats, bars, plates, angle brackets, and more. In this pack, we’ve pulled together 70 structural elements to help you build bigger and more complex robots.
Check out the RoboBench video.
MAX Hardware Pack
It’s hard not to lose screws and other tiny parts, so we collected 900 pieces such as socket head and button head cap screws, kep nuts, quick rivets, spacers, and even an extra set of assembly tools.

MAX Tubes Pack
Tubes are an often-overlooked way to lighten a robot and to create long extenders. To explore the potential of tubes, check out this pack of more than 50 components including various lengths of tubes, corner and anchor blocks, tubing couplers, and more. Check out the video.
MAX DC Motor Pack
Motors are key to getting moving, so stock up with this grouping of four 12-volt DC motors, four motor mounts and motor hubs, and a variety of leads.
MAX Servo Motor Pack
The key to end effectors and many other robotic subcomponents is these little motors. This pack puts together four 180° standard-scale servos and four standard servo mounting kits, making sure that you are never short of possibilities.
MAX Advanced Gear Pack
When you get into hardcore robotics, you must learn to gear up and gear down your motors to fit the activity. This pack provides a variety of gears to help you create the best robot for the job. You get a worm gear box with 10:1 and 20:1 worm gears, rack and pinion linear slide, bevel gear and acetal bearings, assorted axles, bushings, and hubs.
Don’t go flat with your wheels – here’s a pack that includes two each of the 3" and 4" omni wheels, 3" and 4" wheels, all-terrain tires, plus the needed hardware.
MAX Hub and Axle Pack
And if you need more variety in wheels, you might also need more variety in axles and related hardware. This pack brings together more than 100 pieces with axles of different lengths and diameters, spacers, bushings, hubs, set collars, and more.
Given how closely related the Wheel Pack and Hub and Axle Pack are, RoboBench’s Tim Lankford looks at them together in one video.
That's all the new packs – for now! We hope this helps teachers, mentors, and teams find what they need in a convenient form.
