Lifecycle is broadly studying the lifespan of mechanical cable. An engineer’s goal is to identify both potential superiorities among cable materials options and uncover possible points of failure that, without such testing, may go entirely unnoticed.
Tungsten is fast gaining popularity as the industry-favorite material for manufacturing surgical robots. Tungsten is among the most flexible of all metals used in mechanical cable constructions. This blog presents the common tungsten cables used in surgical robots and their unique advantages.
Tungsten is material known to be valued in the construction of mechanical cable due to its heat-resistance, excellent tensile strength and ductility characteristics. This blog breaks down tungsten's properties and what industries it serves.
For decades, stainless steel has been the go-to metal for manufacturers who needed resilient and anti-corrosive material in surgical robots. Read this blog to learn has tungsten wire has taken its place.
