Wills Rings(reg) C seal features a "C" profile and exhibits performance characteristics appropriate for operation in demanding static-sealing applications. The seal also provides a spring-back ability to absorb and counter deformations in hardware. Wills Rings C has a low seating load, contributing to a potential reduction in overall component weight--a significant consideration for applications where the design envelope weight and size are critical to performance.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
