Designed to promote increased reliability and machine uptime by protecting against potential damage caused by the passage of electric currents in ac and dc motors, the INSOCOAT electrically-insulated rolling bearings feature a thin aluminum oxide layer. The layer is meant to form an excellent barrier against electric arcing, which typically causes fluting damage to roller and raceways or grease oxidation. They have performance tested to 1,000V dc with a minimum ohmic resistance of 50M.
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.
