ViseNut is a rapid attaching/detaching nut that saves
tremendous time and effort in virtually every bolting operation, particularly
where threaded members are long, bent, rusted or damaged. Unlike other technologies the Visenut
design is not prone to debris interfering with its mechanism. Visenut truly
Zips on and Off in real field applications.The
patented ViseNut combines two simple machines, the screw and the wedge, into a
thread capturing vise grip. ViseNut starts at the end because it engages only
to load at the flange face, gliding over all prior threads. For use with
offshore, pipeline and plant fabricators; sub sea construction and maintenance;
nuclear power maintenance safety; and wind power. ViseNuts are available in all
standard diameter and thread sizes. The ATF size of the Visenut is one size
larger than the standard nut to accommodate its special engineered features.
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.
