FLUID POWER: The Lee Co.’s new atomizing nozzles, available in both airless and air assisted styles, generate a 50 degree hollow cone spray pattern and offer precise, controlled atomization in a compact package. The airless atomizing nozzles do not need an external air supply and will atomize with pressures as low as 15 psi (on water). The air-assisted nozzles utilize an external air source to control the atomization, allowing lower operating pressures (as low as 5 psi). The nozzles are compatible with Lee’s 062 MINSTAC fitting system and Lee’s VHS micro-dispense valves for fine flow rate control using pulse width modulation (PWM).
If you see a hitchhiker along the road in Canada this summer, it may not be human. That’s because a robot is thumbing its way across our neighbor to the north as part of a collaborative research project by several Canadian universities.
Stanford University researchers have found a way to realize what’s been called the “Holy Grail” of battery-design research -- designing a pure lithium anode for lithium-based batteries. The design has great potential to provide unprecedented efficiency and performance in lithium-based batteries that could substantially drive down the cost of electric vehicles and solve the charging problems associated with smartphones.
