The company's bus control system is engineered to enable system operators to save money on multiple automated valve installations. It enables actuators in systems that use eight or more electric or pneumatically-actuated valves to be controlled by a PCL with a single pair of wires. The actuators are daisy chained on the same pair of wires, with each actuator assigned a unique address that identifies it to the PLC. Haywardhttp://rbi.ims.ca/4911-609
What if algae borne of fertilizer runoff that pollutes rivers and lakes could be harvested and used as biofuel feedstock? What if the leftovers could be recycled into farm soil nutrients, eliminating at least some of the need for artificial fertilizers in the first place? Western Michigan University researchers have a plan.
Manufacturers of plastic parts recognize the potential of conformal cooling to reduce molding cycle times. Problem is, conformal molds require additive manufacturing (AM), and technologies in that space are still evolving. Costs also can be high, and beyond that, many manufacturing organizations lack the knowledge and expertise needed to apply and incorporate additive technologies into their operations.
