FLUID POWER: Fairchild Industrial Products Co.’s new Model M4800 pneumatic volume booster is designed for ultra high flow requirements, having a flow capacity of 500 SCFM and a Cv of 9 in both forward and exhaust modes. The M4800 standard configuration delivers better than 0.5 percent accuracy and is recommended for demanding applications such as hyperbaric chambers, industrial automation systems and tire manufacturing machinery, as well as for use in very low pressure systems operating at 5 psi or less where much higher output flow is desirable, such as tank blanketing, research or process control situations. The available M4800 “I” designated bypass option allows the user to adjust output gain and damping during actual operation for optimum system performance. This option is designed for valve positioners and other valve actuation mechanisms to deliver rapid response in conjunction with very sensitive control devices, such as feed and bleed solenoids. The M4800 unit is compatible with compressed air, natural gas and many other media and offers top performance in an economical package. Fairchild’s QUICKSHIPTM fast delivery of the M4800 enables engineers to easily obtain this high performance booster to complete design and installation of automated systems much faster.
Being in an incubator can be analogous to shopping in a “big box retailer.” You can find many things you need under one roof along with moral support to sustain and move your startup to a successful launch.
Scientists at four major universities in Europe have released a joint paper describing the use of light to put active materials into motion and to control that motion, producing lifelike mechanisms that may or may not contain living organisms, but can produce useful work.
