FLUID POWER: The Model 780 spool valve from Tridak provides a higher rate of fluid flow during dispensing for faster cycling and greater production throughput. This valve is designed to accommodate a broader range of fluids, including those possessing high viscosities. The Model 780 dispense valve is ideal for fluid packaging operations, including filling vials, bottles and other specialty containers. This valve is easily integrated into robotics and automated production processes.
To maintain the precise accuracy of the volume dispensed, the Model 780 spool valve possesses adjustable material suck-back and flow control. Once the exact volume is dialed in during initial qualification, repeatable performance is assured. The standard Model 780 spool valve is supplied with hard-coated aluminum components and Teflon® seals. It is also available in stainless steel and Teflon® construction for applications involving unique materials. Tridak’s Model 345 Valve Controller is ideally suited to actuate this valve.
With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
The Industrial Internet of Things is bringing a previously reluctant process industry into the wireless fold. The ability to connect smart sensors to the Internet has spiked the demand for wireless devices in process manufacturing, according to the new study from ARC Advisory Group.
Everyone has had the experience of trying to scrape the last of the peanut butter or mayonnaise from the bottom of a glass jar without getting your hand sticky. Inventor Ron Jidmar thinks he has a solution to all of that nonsense with a flexible jar design that can be squeezed with one hand to lift contents from the bottom to the top of a jar or container, leaving the other hand free to scoop the contents out cleanly.
