ELECTRONICS: Dietz Models 170D and 171D Low Differential Pressure Switches are now manufactured exclusively by World Magnetics. These heavy-duty designs are ideal for use in construction equipment, marine and rail transportation applications, mining equipment, and a wide range of challenging industrial process applications. Dietz switches combine extremely low pressure actuation and rugged construction to deliver precise and repeatable performance in harsh environments. A highly resistant epoxy finish provides protection where corrosive fumes or acids are present, such as in chemical plants, plating rooms, and sewage treatment plants. The Dietz Model 171D is vibration resistant, and conforms to MIL-STD-167-1 and MIL-STD-901-D.
A number of models with factory set actuation points ranging from 0.05 inch H2O (Model 171D) to 40.0 inch H2O are available.
In addition, World Magnetics manufactures a variety of Dietz pressure switches with actuation points that range from 0.7 inch H2O to 415.6 inch H2O. All feature heavy-duty steel, brass, or aluminum housings and mountings for reliable performance in extreme environments. The product line also includes Dietz airflow switches designed to guard against equipment damage from blower failure or air passage obstruction.
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
