FLUID POWER: Moyno Inc. offers the Moyno® 1000 positive displacement pump that provides greater versatility and performance advantages over other types of positive displacements pumps. This high performance pump is engineered for trouble-free operation in a variety of services including shear sensitive chemical feeds, adhesives, lime, polymer metering, slurries and viscous crude oil transfer applications. The pin-type universal joint is sealed and lubricated, providing long life with minimum maintenance. Standard flange, close-coupled and open throat hopper models are available.
A key feature of the Moyno 1000 Pump is a two-piece drive shaft which allows easy assembly, maintenance, and mechanical seal access. This drive shaft configuration eliminates the need for complete pump disassembly when servicing the mechanical seal.
Additional features of the Moyno 1000 Pump include the following: low shear pumping action; smooth, non-pulsating flow; flow rates from 0.38 to 320 gpm; and pressure capabilities to 350 psi.

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.
