Giant Robot Fight - and the Hydraulics Behind it
Ever heard of MegaBots?
In the summer of 2015, MegaBots, Inc. completed construction of the USA's first giant human-piloted robot. The Mk. III MegaBot is a 15-foot tall, 12,000 pound robot capable of hurling 3 pound projectiles at speeds of over 130 MPH. Upon completion of the Mk. III, MegaBots challenged the only other known giant piloted robot in the world to a duel – a 9,000 pound robot known as KURATAS created by a group in Japan known as Suidobashi Heavy Industries.
Suidobashi Heavy Industries agreed to MegaBots' challenge under the conditions that the fight includes melee combat:
"Just building something huge and sticking guns on it. It's super American ... If we're going to win this, I want to punch them to scrap and knock them down to do it."
So the challenge is on.
Air Savers | Pulsing Air Technology
An Air Saver is a valve that converts a continuous air blow to a pulsed air blow without the need for any other external control. Air is blown with a series of ON and OFF pulses. When the blow is OFF, there is no air consumption.
Pulsing Air Technology Reduces Energy Consumption by up to 50%
