FasTest's FasTest Internal (FI) series
provide fast, leak-tight connections for pressure and vacuum testing, fluid
filling and flushing applications from vacuum to 120 psi. FI connectors
are activated as compressed regulated air acts on a piston within the
connector, which expands a seal to form a leak-tight connection- without pipe
sealant, wrenches and thread damage. Air, liquid or gas media can then be
introduced through the connector to accomplish testing, filling or flushing of
series provides a solution for robotics or pick-and-place
applications that require delicate handling and/or testing. If there is an
error in an automated process that results in a part not arriving to the
specified location, a connector may still become pressurized, resulting in
over-expansion of the seal and potential damage to the connector. To regulate
this expansion of the seal-also referred to as the stroke-the FI series
now includes a stroke limiter feature. The FI series also
features a newly designed retaining clip that is recessed in the connector,
protecting it from wear and contributing to a longer-lasting connector life.
FI connectors that make them particularly reliable and
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.
