Precision Magnetic Carbon Fiber Rod Assembly now available! February 07 2016, 1 Comment
We want you to know that Haydn Huntley and our team have decided to team up and produce the best magnetic ball joints/arms solution anyone could find. It will be $60 plus shipping per set.
Here's the description along with some pictures:
"Haydn's Carbon Fiber Arms with CNC Machined Delrin Sockets"
This fully assembled Precision Magnetic Arm Delta Solution comes with 6 carbon fiber rods, 12 precision machined Delrin cups with embedded magnets, and 12 ball studs.
All arms are precisely assembled, and hold tolerances of less than 50µm (ball) center to center dimensions using custom jigs.
All Magnetic Holder Cups are precision machined from black Delrin. Delrin has great material properties for 3D delta applications: It has high wear resistance, low coefficient of friction (reducing energy loss through friction). There is no need for lubricants, and will reduce overall noise on your delta.
All joints are also tested to at least have 1 kg holding force on each end.
The Chrome Ball Studs are cleverly designed with hexagonal base for easy tightening and standard M3 threads that would easily adapt to popular carriage and effector thread sizes.
Carbon fiber is the choice material for the rods, which have a high strength to weight ratio.
