MATERIALS:Triton introduces Cryo-CarbonTM, a new carbon-carbon
(C-C) composite material with increased thermal conductivity for your extreme heat dissipation applications. Cryo-CarbonTM is comprised of 70 percent graphite flake which provides two-dimensional conductivity in excess of 550 W/mK. Unlike pitchbased fiber composites which only provide conductivity in the axial direction of the filament, conductive flake offers two-dimensional conductivity, providing increased thermal performance throughout the composite X-Y plane - 0 thru 360 degrees.Combined with a high thermally conductive graphitic matrix, a C-C composite which outperforms fiber-based 2-D materials in thermal performance is produced.
Additionally, Cryo-CarbonTM composites can be molded into continuous complex shapes with conductive paths oriented X-Y, X-Z or Y-Z. The composites are robust and can be machined to accommodate interface tolerances for heat sinks and other heat dissipative devices.
Key features include: high thermal conductivity, two dimensional, lightweight, can be molded into complex shapes, lower material costs and ideal for heat dissipation applications.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
