Polyester Expandable Mesh Sleeving For Air Muscles
« on: February 28, 2009, 12:35:03 AM »
I'm looking at the cost of air muscles for robotics and I need to know a good place to find the polyester expandable mesh sleeving used to cover the muslces. Is that just something I buy at the local hardware store?

Hi,

It is used to bundle wires and exists in diameters from about 2 mm up to ? (I only have it up to 50 mm).
The diameter is measured in "rest" (unstretched and uncompressed).

You can get it in well assorted electronics shops (on- and offline) and I have gotten it from PC-modder shops as well (even in Fluorescent and phosphorescent (i.e. glow-in-the-dark).
For air-muscles, the color probably don't matter.
For the bellow, inner tires can be had in several diameters (racing bicycles to tractor size).
Regards,
Søren

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?

You can probably buy it at a fabric or craft store, like the types that cater to ladies who sew and stuff. :P

If it's the same stuff that's used for PC cable sleeving, you might try online stores specializing in PC modding.
