By placing both of a valve's coils on a single side, engineers from Miller Fluid Power have created a higher flow valve in a smaller package. The new valve simplifies design processes for engineers working on machines with tight packaging constraints. Because its dual solenoids are located on the same side of the valve, rather than on opposite sides, the wiring inside requires less space. As a result, it achieves high flow rates in package sizes that are said to be smaller than those of competing versions. The valve's Cvs range from 0.4 to 3.9. Miller Fluid Power: Product Code 4189.
This slideshow includes several versions of multi-materials machines, two different composites processes including one at microscale, and two vastly different metals processes. Potential game-changers down the line include three microscale processes.
Hosted CAD or PDM systems is an emerging technology that offers many advantages over traditional on premise workstation CAD configurations and is making many companies rethink how to deliver future CAD software solutions.
