I want to use my Arduino Uno for programming a robotic arm for my school project.
The robotic arm that I will use is the C-S 113. The Arm will have to draw an equation on paper.
Will Arduino Uno handle this or should I upgrade to a more powerful one?

How much power do you need? How many watts?
The art of getting good answers lies in asking good questions.

From a programming point-of-view, your UNO will be fine.
Just don't supply power to the arm directly from the UNO board. Those stepper motors would suck a fair bit of current.

Actually, I just read (the power supply section of) the pdf on the arm and it has it's own power supply, so you're good-to-go. The PSU supplies 6A for the steppers.
That looks like a pretty nice arm - wish I had one. :)

Could you please tell me were you found that pdf?

I did a search on "Pro Arm RS2200". I got other interesting results as well as the manual.

The pdf Manual:-
Pro Arm RS-2200 Manual

And the general search results:-

He already has a perfectly good robot arm, so why would he want to pay for a laser-cut one? And he'll be using a UNO, not a Mega2560. He already has the UNO, so why buy a Mega?

Will the UNO have enough pins for my project?
I want to use my ramps 1.4 with it.

I've never used ramps or the robot arm, so your guess would be better than mine. Just draw a schematic, work out how many pins it needs, and if it's 19 or less the UNO will do it, otherwise you'll need an expansion board or a Mega.
Actually, I thought a RAMPS board needed a Mega anyway. Check the RAMPS documentation.

RAMPS is a Mega shield.
Thanks for confirming that Mark. I thought it was, but wasn't sure.

Hi, We are a group of people teaching robotics to students by the name RoboSpecies Technologies Pvt. Ltd. We also have an online store by the name RoboShop.in. One of our students who is just 10 years old made this dancing Robot: Do check out and leave comment.
