Oilgear's latest pump offers several mechanical, hydraulic and electrohydraulic servo valve controls. The pump can be interchanged in the field, needing no disconnection from the main drive or system piping. Users can choose one of three capacities per single frame size. It can run on low-viscosity or other special fluids, and resists contamination, made up of a hardened cylinder surface on a hardened valve plate, and has pistons running on a hardened swashblock surface. It also has multiple displacements with two mountings, sealed front bearings, thru-shaft availability, a maximum continuous speed of 3,600 rpm, a peak pressure of 5,000 rpm (350 bar), and theoretical maximum displacements from 0.66 cubic inches (10.8 ml/rev) to 1.35 cubic inches/rev (22.1 ml/rev).
The Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
An MIT research team has invented what they see as a solution to the need for biodegradable 3D-printable materials made from something besides petroleum-based sources: a water-based robotic additive extrusion method that makes objects from biodegradable hydrogel composites.
