The 310/410 Series of 1/8-inch ported, 3- and 4-way, direct-acting solenoid valves are for use in pneumatic applications. Valves of the same series can be mounted in-line or on a mounting base, and 3- or 4-way valves can be combined or stacked and subbase assemblies. The short-stroke balanced poppet design permits rapid cycling, requires no lubrication, and is more tolerant of impurities in the air system, ensuring positive sealing.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
