The Linear Transfer Vehicle is billed as an accurate high-speed linear transfer system that takes full advantage of the latest advances in linear servo drive technology. It is designed to revolutionize material movement applications through its speed and precision, thus allowing material handlers and manufactures to move, pick and put away product with greater efficiency. It reportedly moves at speeds that are 10 times faster than conventional belt drive systems, with a positioning accuracy of 0.010 inch.
A simple new chemical method for repairing and recycling notoriously difficult carbon fiber composites has been developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research. An entire component can be completely recycled, including reclaiming its expensive carbon fibers for reuse.
