New Oxygen Clean Series Electronic Valves (O-E Series) from Clippard are two- or three-way pneumatic control valves designed for use in oxygen environments or other applications sensitive to contamination. Based on Clippard's EV valves, which feature a patented valving system, the new O-E Series is manufactured, cleaned and tested for use in oxygen-enriched environments. And for the sake of low particulate generation in the field, it features only one moving part — a flexing armature that opens and closes the valve without the particulate potentially generated by sliding parts. Clippard rates the flexing armature for up to billion cycles.
The Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
An MIT research team has invented what they see as a solution to the need for biodegradable 3D-printable materials made from something besides petroleum-based sources: a water-based robotic additive extrusion method that makes objects from biodegradable hydrogel composites.
