CAM RUNNER(TM) idler-rollers are for applications unsuitable for metallic cam followers. The composite tread and bearing unit, sized for direct replacement of conventional cam followers, includes a threaded steel mounting stud. There are no internal rolling elements, no need for lubrication, and no seals to contain lubrication. The internal design eliminates the possibility of product or process contamination from lost lubricant, and with no needles, operating noise is reduced.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
