Denison Hydraulics' series of open loop pumps now includes the P05 and P09 versions. The P05 has a displacement of 4.9 cubic inches per revolution, a rated operating pressure of 7,250 psi, and a maximum power rating of 287 hp. The P09 has a displacement of 8.6 cubic inches per revolution a rated pressure of 7,250 psi, and a maximum power rating of 425 hp. Both new pumps offer bearing supported cylinder barrels, angled inlet and outlet ports, and seven pistons. These and other features translate to fewer parts and enhanced reliability, faster response times, unusually quiet operation, improved pump-filling characteristics, and a compact rotating group that reduces overall pump size.
Lithium-ion battery prices will drop rapidly over the next 10 years, setting the stage for plug-in vehicles to reach 5%-10% of total automotive sales by the mid- to late-2020s, according to a new study.
Two researchers from Cornell University have won a $100,000 grant from NASA to continue work to develop an energy-harvesting robotic eel the space agency aims to use to explore oceans on one of the moons of Jupiter.
Is the factory smarter than it used to be? From recent buzzwords, you’d think we’ve entered a new dimension in industrial plants, where robots run all physical functions wirelessly and humans do little more than program ever more capable robotics. Some of that is actually true, but it’s been true for a while.
A recent Design News-exclusive study proves that engineering professionals are at the very forefront of this push into the future and making direct financial, performance, and value impact on their organizations by being personally involved or final decision-makers on automation solution and component choices.
