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.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
If you’re developing a product with lots of sensors and no access to the power grid, then you’ll want to take note of a Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Designing Low Power Systems Using Battery and Energy Harvesting Energy Sources."
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.
