Cementex, the safety tool specialists, announces the availability of its insulating rubber apron, now available with a new belt strap and is ideal for working on or around battery storage systems. The apron is a good choice for technicians who have to reach over energized conductors to perform standard maintenance. The new belt strap allows for easy cinching at the waist to help decrease the risk of the apron dragging across batteries.
Researchers at the Faculty of Physics, University of Warsaw, used the liquid crystal elastomer technology to demonstrate a series of micro-tools grown on optical fibers. The 200-micrometer gripers are controlled remotely, without electric wiring or pneumatic tubing, with green light delivered through the fibers - absorbed light energy is directly converted into the gripper jaws' action.
Biological tissues have evolved over millennia to be perfectly optimized for their specific functions.
Imagine a self-repairing rubber, or super-adhesive made entirely from waste materials.
