The Classic Series of vacuum pumps is constructed of the high-tech composite material Polyphenylenesulphide. This glass-reinforced compound provides extreme corrosion resistance against chemicals including acetone, sulphuric acid, and toulene. The 1.32- to 1.65-lb weight of the body style makes the pumps targeted for use in end-of-arm tooling. The pumps are available in three models, M, X, and H. The choice of model is dependent on the desired level of vacuum pressure.

In many engineering workplaces, there’s a generational conflict between recent engineering graduates and older, more experienced engineers. However, a recent study published in the psychology journal Cognition suggests that both may have something to learn from another group: 4 year olds.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
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.
