FLUID POWER: The TridakModel 785 poppet valve can be used in numerous applications to dispense low-to-medium viscosity materials such as adhesives, silicones, greases, and other filled materials. This economical valve improves fluid dispensing accuracy and consistency.
The Model 785’s design minimizes friction between the actuating components of the valve and the material being dispensed. Minimizing this friction substantially decreases valve maintenance and down-time. The valve’s stroke adjustment and control feature offers precise adjustment of fluid deposit volume and flow. Material is shut-off cleanly at the end of each cycle, which is particularly significant for tacky or stringy materials. Peak performance is obtained when actuated with the Tridak Model 345 valve controller.
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.
