MATERIALS:Henkel Corp. has introduced Loctite® 263™ Threadlocker, a high-strength, single-component anaerobic threadlocker designed to permanently lock and seal threaded fasteners up to one-inch in diameter. For use in a wide range of heavy-duty industrial applications, this high-viscosity, primerless, red threadlocker cures on fasteners treated with thread lubricants and anti-corrosion/protection fluids without cleaning.
When confined in the absence of air between close-fitting metal surfaces, Loctite® 263™ fixtures and cures rapidly. This anaerobic threadlocker performs equally well on both active and passive metal surfaces including stainless steel and plated material without the use of a primer.
Once fully cured and in service, Loctite® 263™ prevents fastener loosening and leakage caused by shock and vibration, and withstands temperatures up to 360ºF. This red, high- strength threadlocker offers excellent resistance to a variety of industrial fluids and solvents, ensuring a leak-free seal of the threaded assembly. Localized heat and hand tools are required to disassemble fasteners treated with Loctite® 263™.
Loctite® 263™ Threadlocker is available in 0.5 ml capsules, 10 ml tubes, and 50 ml, 250 ml or 1 liter bottles.

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.
