MagneTek's microsize GPD 205 adjustable frequency drives are now available in 460V ac models. The new models come in four incremental ratings from 0.5 to 3 hp. Although only a fraction of the size of conventional PWM drives, the GPD 205 is said to be useful for sophisticated equipment control in applications that include fans, pumps, mixers, agitators, compressors, conveyors, commercial laundry, and material-handling installations. The drive's 16-bit microprocessor provides the flexibility, features, and performance for a wide range of operational requirements. It installs and programs easily, has the versatility to adapt to simple or complex applications, and is UL-listed, CSA-approved, and CE-marked. MagneTek Drives & Systems. Product Code 4361
Researchers have been working on a number of alternative chemistries to lithium-ion for next-gen batteries, silicon-air among them. However, while the technology has been viewed as promising and cost-effective, to date researchers haven’t managed to develop a battery of this chemistry with a viable running time -- until now.
Norway-based additive manufacturing company Norsk Titanium is building what it says is the first industrial-scale 3D printing plant in the world for making aerospace-grade metal components. The New York state plant will produce 400 metric tons each year of aerospace-grade, structural titanium parts.
