MATERIALS: Precision fit, aesthetics, strength and numerous stud sizes, styles and receptacles make Southco’s D8 Dzus Panex quarter-turn quick-access fastener line a leading choice for a wide variety of applications. Precision rolling creates a perfect fit, even at low to moderate order volumes. Multiple surface-finish styles complement a variety of applications. Numerous sizes and styles satisfy a variety of mounting configurations and applications. Snap-in and clip-on receptacles minimize assembly time, to reduce installed costs. Spring steel receptacle clips provide a snug, yet grip-tolerant fit. Front-mount press-in receptacle is suitable for soft metals and thermoplastic materials. Mix and match stud headstyles and lengths with appropriate receptacles to accommodate total material thicknesses from 0.7 to 32.4 mm. They are available in 4, 6 and 9 mm stud sizes, in steel and stainless-steel materials and are available in multiple finish options - zinc plate with chromate, zinc plate with black chromate, and bright chrome.

For use in industry applications including: boiler controls, CCTV camera covers, HVAC access panels, lighting, motorcycle fairings, off-highway vehicles and protective helmets.
Surveillance, reconnaissance, and search and rescue in military and first responder situations are popular applications for aerial robots. Yet not all the robots are considered unmanned aerial vehicles.
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 radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
