Vickers Inc.'s KB Series proportional directional valves are said to provide higher performance than conventional proportional valves. They are also more cost effective, more easily installed, more compact, and suited to the precise fluid power control requirements of the theme park industry. The KB Series combines advanced electrohydraulic technology with "plug-and-play" integrated electronics. Available in ISO size 03 and ISO size 05, the KB valves are rated at 350 bar (5,000 psi). The 03 and 05 size models are aimed at the high performance motion control market with bandwidths of 50-70 Hz.
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.
