Model CV-10 programmable orbital vibration welder incorporates a proven electromagnetic drive to create relative motion between two thermoplastic parts. This constant-velocity motion generates heat, raising the material temperature at the joint to its melting point. The motion stops after sufficient material is melted. The plastic then solidifies and forms a permanent bond. The orbital welding process provides greater capabilities in designing plastic parts. An elliptical path can be set at any angle.
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.
