MATERIALS: Kurt Hydraulics has expanded its offering to include a new line of W-Style couplings. These are multi-purpose couplings compatible with most spiral, braided and industrial hoses to handle a wide range of hydraulic applications.
Designed for non-skive SAE 100 R12 and all wire braided hose applications, these couplings are available in 562 different end types. They are available in sizes 4-32, non-skive all sizes of R12, non-skive 4SH 12-20 sizes and a full line of metrics.
These Kurt W-style couplings feature corrosion resistant ROHS compliant plating and are compatible with most model crimpers.
Ruggedly designed to eliminate leaks in hydraulic systems, these Kurt W-style couplings are ideal for both industrial and commercial applications including construction, agricultural, mining, off highway vehicle, and plant maintenance equipment. Field proven in vibration and shock conditions, they are designed to handle sub-zero through high temperature applications.
Kurt couplings meet SAE specifications and are quality manufactured in accordance with ISO 9002/QS 9000 quality processes and systems.
Are they robots or androids? We're not exactly sure. Each talking, gesturing Geminoid looks exactly like a real individual, starting with their creator, professor Hiroshi Ishiguro of Osaka University in Japan.
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.
