The Main Block manifold block for pneumatic piping connects one piping unit to another and can create piping in a wide variety of lengths and shapes to accommodate multiple applications. No die-casting is needed, as the user simply attaches the manifold to the desired piping for an accurate piping unit. The Main Block is nickel-brass-plated and offers various flow rates depending on the size. Available in air, vacuum, or as panel-mounting type models, the Main Block has a connecting thread size of 1/8 to 1/2 inch NPT.

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.
The government wants to study your brain, and DARPA wants to use similar information to give robots true autonomy beyond any artificial intelligence developed to date. Sound like science fiction? It's not.
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
