Evonik Industries' Vestamid HTplus M1533 is a 30 percent glass
fiber-reinforced compound that contains an internal lubricant. Reducing
friction and minimizing abrasion,the
polyphthalamide (PPA) amplifies the durability of gearbox components and
reduces the energy consumed in the application. The material extends the repair
intervals because gearbox components made from Vestamid HTplus M1533 are
self-lubricating. The new compound can be used in gear wheels, friction
bearings and ball bearing cages. Vestamid HTplus M1533 is available in two colors:
natural and black.
Evonik is also adding 45 percent glass
fiber-reinforced Vestamid HTplus M10345 to its PPA range. This
thermally stable black compound is suitable for injection molding applications
that must withstand extremely high temperatures. Besides high chemical
resistance, molded parts made of Vestamid HTplus offer
high dimensional stability and mechanical properties such as rigidity and
tensile strength. Vestamid HTplus is suited for applications in which
metals have traditionally been used. In addition to corrosion resistance, lower
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.
