Stork Veco Micro Filters can incorporate holes, slots and complex shapes from 0.0001 to 0.080 inches dia. with tolerances to ±0.5µm and include up to 1 million holes per square inch. Custom manufactured to specification from nickel in sizes from 1/8 inch to 3 sq ft and 0.001 to 0.021 inches thick, these filters can be finished with various types of protective coatings.
Available in prototype to production quantities, Stork Veco Micro Filters feature sharp edges and excellent reproducibility which is characteristic of electroforming, claims the firm. Suitable for use as filters and pre-filters to prolong the life of membranes, they have wedge-shaped cross sections to prevent clogging and facilitate cleaning.

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.
