In recent years, the utilization of virtual environments in industry 4.0 has witnessed significant growth, particularly in the design, implementation, and management of robotic systems. This paper addresses the need for enhanced control in robotic arms by presenting the design and implementation of a 5DoF robotic arm transformed into a digital platform through specialized software. The methods employed involve detailed direct and inverse kinematic modeling to replicate the physical arm in a digital environment. Our measurements indicate an impressive accuracy ranging from 97% to 100% in the movements of the digital model, closely mirroring its physical counterpart. This research not only contributes to the development of simulation systems but also holds promise for the broader adoption of digital twins. The paper discusses the background, outlines the methodology, highlights key findings, and concludes with the potential future impact of this work on the advancement of robotic systems and simulation technologies.
