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).
In a line of ultra-futuristic projects, DARPA is developing a brain microchip that will help heal the bodies and minds of soldiers. A final product is far off, but preliminary chips are already being tested.
