The ELQ Series of electric actuators are for quarter-turn rotary valves and are for on/off and modulating applications. The actuators provide maximum operating versatility through "plug-in" models that accommodate varying operating requirements. The actuators are available in five models from 445 to 7,000 inches-lb and feature 100% duty cycle and an efficient flex-splined gear system for tight positioning control. Standard features include a manual override; mechanical travel stops; dome position indicator; and NEMA 4, 7, and 9 housings.
Researchers have been working on a number of alternative chemistries to lithium-ion for next-gen batteries, silicon-air among them. However, while the technology has been viewed as promising and cost-effective, to date researchers haven’t managed to develop a battery of this chemistry with a viable running time -- until now.
Norway-based additive manufacturing company Norsk Titanium is building what it says is the first industrial-scale 3D printing plant in the world for making aerospace-grade metal components. The New York state plant will produce 400 metric tons each year of aerospace-grade, structural titanium parts.
