The PVK open-loop, axial piston pump series is designed to provide medium to high horsepower for high performance applications. With a variety of controls engineered to be readily interchanged, the product is available in three displacements and various frame sizes. The products have a hardened cylinder surface running on a hardened valve plate, reportedly providing greater resistance to contamination.
More and more robots are becoming more autonomous all the time. Now Lockheed Martin has completed a demo mission with two completely autonomous robotic vehicles performing resupply, reconnaissance, surveillance, and target acquisition.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
