Repetitive leak testing of thousands of parts can be very hard on operators hands and wrists. To reduce the chance of carpal tunnel syndrome or other injury during static or dynamic testing of high pressure hydraulic components, positive clamp lever action eliminates the twisting and turning required when using hands or a wrench.
The split collet design locks quickly and securely in female threads, providing a safer and cleaner testing process for filling, evacuating, and pressure-test sealing. The connector instantly grips and seals up to 5,000 psi, for water dunk, pressure decay, or mass spectrometer testing applications.

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.
Healthcare might seem to be an unlikely target application for the Internet of Things technology, but recent developments show small ways that big-data is going to make an impact on patient care moving into the future.
As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
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
