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.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
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
