MATERIALS:Mott Corp. announces the introduction of a newly developed ultra high flow metal filter series. This group of products represents the most efficient high flow, all-metal gas filter in the market today. Mott’s High Flow Defender Series Filters can accommodate flow rates of 300slpm and 650slpm in standard filter lengths of 3.31 inch (84 mm) or 5.0 inch (127 mm) respectively.This filter series attains filtration efficiencies at 9 LRV (99.9999999 percent efficiency) down to 0.003 µm particles sizes. Mott is the first to offer an all-metal gas filter that can provide these efficiencies and these very high flow rates in such small footprints. As the semiconductor, flat panel display and photovoltaic industries look to increase flow requirements in their manufacturing processes, the Mott High Flow, High Efficiency Defender Filters are there to meet the challenge.

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.
