FLUID POWER: Ashcroft® Types 510 & 511 diaphragm seals are the newest addition to the expansive line of Ashcroft® instrument media isolators. These economical, all welded seals protect pressure gauges, transmitters, switches and other instruments against the potentially harmful effects of caustic media. Available for use with ranges from vacuum through 5000 psi, the 510 & 511 seals can be threaded onto any ½ NPT fitting or welded directly to eliminate the possibility of leakage. Other features include a choice of diaphragm materials, fill fluids and a lower housing flush port (Type 511).

We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
