Humphrey's latest cylinders are designed to be shorter, lighter and thinner than those of equal bore and stroke. Their flat pistons make them up to 40 percent thinner, and they have a 35 percent shorter dead stroke due to the block type end cap, which needs no mounting brackets, making for zero stroke dimension. They are light enough to not burden either the actuator axis or the stand, even with a Y-Z axis. They last longer and leak less, using high-strength stainless-steel bands. Lead wires for embedded sensor switches can be drawn out from a single surface through a cap groove on the cylinders' sensor switch tracks. They come with NPT ports and mounting options such as a shock absorber and F-tube supports.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
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
