Robotrax carrier accommodates swiveling and rotating (90 degrees per 1m length) movement. Turnkey solutions, including carrier system, cables and hoses, plus connectors, simplify robot installation.
Three compartments, positioned radially about a steel rope core, form the flexible carrier system "Robotrax." Completely harnessed cables and hoses press into the partitioning carrier compartments and can be easily inspected or individually replaced whenever necessary. Designed for robotic equipment and good for 3- to 18-mm cable diameters, the carrier system offers quick assembly, high tensile strength, high flexibility, and low space requirements.
If you see a hitchhiker along the road in Canada this summer, it may not be human. That’s because a robot is thumbing its way across our neighbor to the north as part of a collaborative research project by several Canadian universities.
Stanford University researchers have found a way to realize what’s been called the “Holy Grail” of battery-design research -- designing a pure lithium anode for lithium-based batteries. The design has great potential to provide unprecedented efficiency and performance in lithium-based batteries that could substantially drive down the cost of electric vehicles and solve the charging problems associated with smartphones.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
