Measuring flow with ultrasonic signalsThese battery-powered flowmeters have no moving parts, using transit-time ultrasonic technology, where two flow sensors alternately transmit and receive a signal and "time of flight" measures flow rate. There is very little pressure loss and no filtration is needed. Both 150-lb ANSI and DIN flange styles come in many sizes, with either integral or remote electronics to display flow rate or total. Prices start at $1,752. OMEGA Engineering Inc.http://rbi.ims.ca/4928- 602
More and more robots are becoming more autonomous all the time. Now Lockheed Martin has completed a demo mission with two completely autonomous robotic vehicles performing resupply, reconnaissance, surveillance, and target acquisition.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
