FLUID POWER: EXAIR’s new Long Super Air Knives produce a laminar sheet of airflow to blowoff, dry or cool wide surfaces up to 96 inch (2438 mm). The compact, energy efficient design minimizes compressed air use by entraining 40 parts room air to one part compressed air. It is ideal for use on wide parts, webs and conveyors.The Long Super Air Knives provide a uniform, high volume, high velocity curtain of air that is infinitely adjustable from gentle blowing force to a hard-hitting blast of air. The compact profile measures 1.75 x 1.44 inch with compressed air inlets located on each end and the bottom to permit easy mounting in tight spaces. The Long Super Air Knife is quiet, maintenance free, and has no moving parts to wear out.
Long Super Air Knives are available in 60 inch (1524 mm), 72 inch (1829 mm), 84 inch (2134 mm) and 96 inch (2438 mm) lengths that are fully assembled. They ship from stock in your choice of aluminum, Type 303 stainless steel, or Type 316 stainless steel. A factory installed plumbing kit is also available that makes it easy to connect Long Super Air Knives to any plant compressed air system and obtain the best performance. Prices start at $930.

In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
Biomedical engineering is one of the fastest growing engineering fields; from medical devices and pharmaceuticals to more cutting-edge areas like tissue, genetic, and neural engineering, US biomedical engineers (BMEs) boast salaries nearly double the annual mean wage and have faster than average job growth.
