The HAV Series of air-cooled liquid chillers and coolers are for cooling cutting fluids, hydraulic fluids, or other liquids which are cycled to a fluid reservoir such as a central coolant pit, storage tank, or quench tank. The units feature vertical air discharge to minimize worker discomfort, reduce floor space requirements, and improve the ease of ducting air flow into the plant. Available in 19 standard models, the HAV Series units feature durable, welded, hermetic compressors and industrial-type electricals.
A new service lets engineers and orthopedic surgeons design and 3D print highly accurate, patient-specific, orthopedic medical implants made of metal -- without owning a 3D printer. Using free, downloadable software, users can import ASCII and binary .STL files, design the implant, and send an encrypted design file to a third-party manufacturer.
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.
