MATERIALS: Mott Corp. will display filtration products, flow control products and porous metal technology in its exhibit at the MD&M West tradeshow (Booth #3185) taking place in Anaheim, CA Feb. 9-11.Design engineers in the Medical Device industry and other industries, utilize Mott’s porous metal media primarily because of its precise consistency and durability. Products using porous metal offer exceptional performance, long life and accuracy. Some products currently utilizing porous metal include various implantable devices, filters to prevent plugging of catheters, drug delivery devices, medical instrumentation, sparging devices for cell culture processing and gas flow restrictor devices for gas delivery in life-critical systems.
Our products are produced using a wide variety of metal alloys to meet the requirements of many demanding applications. Primary alloys used for medical devices are titanium and 316L stainless steels.
In addition to the fact that porous metal offers unique design and performance benefits, porous metal can help your company go green. Mott sintered porous metal media can also be completely recycled; an important attribute as we look for ways to conserve on the consumption of resources, energy and space used in landfills.
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.
