TW 510X2 is designed to wrap composite tape materials around a mandrel, which
will subsequently be removed after curing to form a finished composite tube.
Two tapes can simultaneously be wrapped, each with independent tension and
application angle adjustments. The ability to infinitely adjust the wrap angle
in three axis facilitates wrinkle free evenly tensioned wrap layers. Proper
compaction of mandrel-wrapped composites is absolutely essential to the quality
of the finished product. Many of the machines previously on the market did not
provide sufficiently accurate control of laypitch, nor compensation for tape
twist. The TW 510X2 allows greater
flexibility in low-quantity production, and greater repeatability for mass
production. Better manufacturing frees
design engineers to develop more innovative products. Active feedback provides
accurate, independent control of compaction pressure on both reels
simultaneously. The servo drive system maintains a uniform, programmable lay
pitch across the entire speed range, even during ramp-up or ramp-down. And the
unique, separately pivoting heads allow for zero - or a specific- angle of
twist on the tapes during wrapping, eliminating wrinkles and pockets.
With erupting concern over police brutality, law enforcement agencies are turning to body-worn cameras to collect evidence and protect police and suspects. But how do they work? And are they even really effective?
A half century ago, cars were still built by people, not robots. Even on some of the country’s longest assembly lines, human workers installed windows, doors, hoods, engines, windshields, and batteries, with no robotic aid.
DuPont's Hytrel elastomer long used in automotive applications has been used to improve the way marine mooring lines are connected to things like fish farms, oil & gas installations, buoys, and wave energy devices. The new bellow design of the Dynamic Tethers wave protection system acts like a shock absorber, reducing peak loads as much as 70%.
