Lauramid® application example: Robotics
Robots can be found in a wide variety of fields of application. One of the key factors for reliable function is selecting the correct materials. Due to the low component weight (20 % weight advantage in comparison to POM or PA6) and the almost unlimited mould casting possibilities offered by Lauramid®, this high-performance plastic is ideal for dynamic components in moving applications.
This is how a robot arm is cast net-shape with Lauramid®
