@Klaresz1, really, my intention is to be certain that the products we sell are able to be repaired, because one of our claims is that our products are worth repairing. And that has been demonstrated repeatedly, that even some serious customer abuse, our one product line still met specification after it was hit so hard that an MS-PT style connector was sheared off. Installing a new connector and the product was once again working within specifications.
So really, yes, it is ok for our customers to open our equipment, once they have purchased it. I give them circuit diagrams, descriptions of operation, and calibration check procedures. Our competitors don't do that.
William, we have front removal fasteners as well, however the security of such has to be taken into account for the design etc... Don't want someone taking your enclosure apart from the outside. Email me: email@example.com
Tj the fasteners are leagues ahead of traditional nut/bolts in terms of strength. Consider the cross section alone. I'm the author and would be happy to discuss any concerns with you. Z.firstname.lastname@example.org
If done correctly (and not putting excessive burden on the customer), flat pack shipping can be cost-effective and efficient. However, I'm concerned that some in upper management may use this as a way to cut cost at the expense of customer dis-satsifaction. Intelligent use of this technique is important.
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.
