March 7, 2022

For some engineers, finding a solution to their product design challenges is a straightforward process. But for others, it’s a more complicated journey. Science Friction takes you through five of those journeys and reveals how polymer components helped solve their problems.

In this episode, Hosts Adam and Avory speak with Justin Rooney from Dexai Robotics about their flexible robotic arm (and sous chef), Alfred. Designed with self-lubricating iglide® PRT slewing rings, Alfred uses different utensils to help prepare meals, such as salads and steaks, in commercial kitchens.
