ELECTRONICS: Henkel Corporation introduced the LoctiteLED Flood System, a self-contained, air-cooled assembly designed to cure Loctite UV/Visible cure adhesives. The system delivers a curing area of 100 x 100mm at intensities of up to 600mW/cm², depending on the wavelength selected. Unlike traditional arc lamps, this LED system has a significantly longer life, negligible intensity decay, and no infrared emissions that can overheat parts.
Unlike competitive LED flood systems, which claim high intensities at the lamp face, the Loctite system has an array of individually reflectorized LEDs, optimally focused for maximum intensity at a 50-100mm working distance. With proper handling, this cure system offers an expected life of more than 20,000 hours. Designed to stack together to create an extended blanket of light, the Loctite LED Flood System is available in three different wavelengths —375nm, 405nm or Indigo™ (visible blue)— to match the adhesive’s cure requirements.
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.
