These clusters use EXAIR's Super Air Nozzles maximize entrained airflow and force and reduce compressed air use and noise. They are made to replace open pipes and hoses known to be inefficient, dangerous, and contributors to hearing loss. They meet OSHA's maximum allowable noise exposure standard, and the airflow coming out of the nozzles cannot be blocked, which also meets OSHA standards. The clusters have an air consumption of 56, 98 and 168 SCFM at full pressure of 80 PSIG, while providing blowing force of 3.2, 5.7 and 9.8 lb. They are durable, with a zinc aluminum alloy construction attached to an aluminum body, and can work in industrial applications at temperatures up to 158F. Prices start at $175.

Inspired by the hooks a parasitic worm uses to penetrate its host's intestines, the Karp Lab has invented a flexible adhesive patch covered with microneedles that adheres well to wet, soft tissues, but doesn't cause damage when removed.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
