Shielded robot cable

  • 31-Mar-2009 11:59 EDT

The Chainflex CF Robot from igus is a shielded robot cable for applications involving high levels of torsion. It is designed for both robotic and nonrobotic uses, such as rotary tables or spindle drives that are supplied with high power levels. The cable features a torsion-resistant tin-plated copper shield. The forces effected on the cable by torsional movements are largely absorbed by sliding and buffer elements between the sheath, shield, and insulation; this prevents early shield failure. The outer sheath material is a high-grade thermoplastic elastomer mixture with good wear properties. The twistable cable has successfully passed testing of more than 3 million torsional movements to ±270°.

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.
Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.

NASA has selected proposals for the creation of two multi-disciplinary, university-led Space Technology Research Institutes (STRIs) that will focus on the development of technologies critical to extending human presence deeper into our solar system. The new STRIs will bring together researchers from various disciplines and organizations to collaborate on the advancement of cutting-edge technologies in bio-manufacturing and space infrastructure.
