MATERIALS:Master Bond EP30M3LV is a specially engineered, low exothermic epoxy system formulated to help avoid excess heat buildup and damage to thermally sensitive components during potting operations. It also contains a special additive to remove air bubbles. This compound cures at room temperatures or more rapidly at elevated temperatures, and can be cured in various cross section thicknesses. EP30M3LV has a volume resistivity of 2×1015 ohm cm at 25C. It has a convenient 2:1 mix ratio by weight and an advantageously low mixed viscosity of 2,000-3,000 cps. It has a service operating temperature range of -60 to 250F. EP30M3LV also has superior dimensional stability, a flexural strength of 14,000 psi and a tensile strength of >8,000 psi. Master Bond EP30M3LV is environmentally friendly, 100 percent reactive and contains no solvents or diluents. It is available for use in half-pint, pint, quart, gallon and 5 gal pail kits.
Robots that walk have come a long way from simple barebones walking machines or pairs of legs without an upper body and head. Much of the research these days focuses on making more humanoid robots. But they are not all created equal.
The IEEE Computer Society has named the top 10 trends for 2014. You can expect the convergence of cloud computing and mobile devices, advances in health care data and devices, as well as privacy issues in social media to make the headlines. And 3D printing came out of nowhere to make a big splash.
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 discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
