Measuring 0.78 inches long x 0.25 inches in diameter, the Nano Super Air Nozzle™ Model 1110SS features Type 316 SS construction suitable for blowoff, cooling and drying applications. The unit provides narrowly focused air patterns that measures 1.5 inches in diameter when positioned 6 inches away from the target surface. Blowing force of 8.1 oz is achieved with air consumption of 8.3 scfm at 80 psig. Since airflow cannot be blocked, nozzle meets OSHA standard for dead-end pressure.
New versions of BASF's Ecovio line are both compostable and designed for either injection molding or thermoforming. These combinations are becoming more common for the single-use bioplastics used in food service and food packaging applications, but are still not widely available.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
