The POP(reg) 5400 long-stroke rivet tool features a modular design which allows operators to change stroke lengths and add accessories. The full-range, air-hydraulic system can be used for demanding, high-production rivet-setting in a variety of applications. With a full 1-inch stroke, the tool sets up all commercial blind rivets up to 1/4 inch diameter, T-Rivets, and large secondary head rivets. A long, slender nose housing allows for access to tight areas, and an optional 8-inch nose housing is available for even narrower or deeper applications.
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.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
