FLUID POWER: Iwaki America Inc.’s HRP compact dc driven metering pump is designed for OEM fluid injection applications. Digitally controlled, high-resolution injection capability operating from 0-720 SPM with 0.055 cc/stroke offers consistent low volume injection capability. Its maintenance-free design with four external control options and availability in 12 or 24V dc configurations makes this an ideal OEM solution for dosing applications. The HRP Series offers four control options including pulsed input, 4-20 mA speed control, 1-5V dc speed control and stop/start for maximum integration flexibility into OEM systems. HRP pumps are available with 12 or 24V dc drives with flows ranging from 0 ml/min to 38 ml/m and pressures to 0.2 Mpa. The HRP design features pump end construction materials of PVDF with FKM gaskets, alumina ceramic valves and PTFE diaphragm for excellent chemical resistance and cost-effective handling of most fluids. The IP65 construction makes it dust and waterproof. Applications for the HRP include disinfectant injection for food and beverage industries, detergent injection for cleaning systems and in any OEM system where chemical injection is required.
As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
The government wants to study your brain, and DARPA wants to use similar information to give robots true autonomy beyond any artificial intelligence developed to date. Sound like science fiction? It's not.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
