FLUID POWER:Ashcroft®’s Type 1008S pressure gauge is designed for use in harsh installations. A sealed stainless-steel case, along with stainless-steel wetted materials, allow the Type 1008S to stand up to most environments and service media. The patented PowerFlex movement ensures a significantly longer service life despite shock and vibration, while the optional PLUS!TM or liquid-filled configurations counter pointer instability due to pulsation. The Ashcroft® Type 1008S is available in 2 ½ inch (63 mm) or 4 inch (100 mm) dial sizes and in ranges from vacuum through 15,000 psi.
At the Design News webinar on June 27, learn all about aluminum extrusion: designing the right shape so it costs the least, is simplest to manufacture, and best fits the application's structural requirements.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
