AW Company's latest meters are made for high-pressure systems that need flow meters rated up to 15,000 psi (1035 bar). They are designed for high-pressure hydraulic and fuel systems and offshore chemical injection systems ranging from methanol, corrosion and wax inhibitors, and water treatment chemicals, along with other applications. They come with medium-pressure autoclave connections, 316 SS bodies and xylan-coated bolts. They have flow ranges from 0.003 to 7 gpm. The bi-directional meters can be hydrotested to 1.5x the working pressure rating. Explosion-proof sensors and displays are available for the meters. Also available are ATEX certificates for non-sparking devices and material certificates 2.2 and 3.1b.
Altair has released an update of its HyperWorks computer-aided engineering simulation suite that includes new features focusing on four key areas of product design: performance optimization, lightweight design, lead-time reduction, and new technologies.
At IMTS last week, Stratasys introduced two new multi-materials PolyJet 3D printers, plus a new UV-resistant material for its FDM production 3D printers. They can be used in making jigs and fixtures, as well as prototypes and small runs of production parts.
In a line of ultra-futuristic projects, DARPA is developing a brain microchip that will help heal the bodies and minds of soldiers. A final product is far off, but preliminary chips are already being tested.
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.
