Triflex RSP cable-guidance systems from igus feature an adjustable retraction system; they are designed for secure cable guidance on large robot arms or for robots programmed to perform complex movements. The force at which the unit retracts can be adjusted by changing the pressure inside its pneumatic cylinder. The system can be attached to various robot models quickly and easily via compact mounting brackets. The system is both space-saving and lightweight. An optional monitoring system is available for robots whose program sequences frequently change, alternate, or are not 100% predictable. This is particularly useful for robots that are steered by cameras or image-acquisition systems.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.
