The Original Line II is a stainless steel body air cylinder with built-in flow controls and fittings. It reportedly has a smaller profile than standard cylinder/flow control/fitting combinations. It also features speed control with a special "flow gear" that allows fine speed controls with over 15 turns of adjustment. Built-in, quick-connect fittings are compatible with urethane, nylon, and calibrated polyethylene tubing. Front and rear heads include built-in foot-mounting holes, and optional push-to-connect elbows and tees are available for easy installation. It provides the same design features, overall length, and mounting thread sizes as Original Line stainless steel body air cylinders.
In an age of globalization and rapid changes through scientific progress, two of our societies' (and economies') main concerns are to satisfy the needs and wishes of the individual and to save precious resources. Cloud computing caters to both of these.
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.
