EXAIR's new Modular E-Vac® Vacuum
Generators are a series of low cost, compressed air powered vacuums for
lifting, "pick and place", clamping, chucking, and surface mounting
applications. These vacuum pumps provide instantaneous response and are
available in many sizes that offer a variety of vacuum levels and flow rates.
They are maintenance free and have no moving parts to wear out.
The lightweight, aluminum construction is compact
and easy to install at the point of use which is ideal for lifting applications
where fast attach and release times are needed. Mounting holes are
E-Vac Vacuum Generators are available in two styles. Seven low vacuum units up
to 21 inch Hg (71 kPa) generate more airflow to overcome porosity and leakage
when used with porous materials such as cardboard. Seven high vacuum units up
to 27 inch Hg (91 kPa) are ideal for non-porous materials such as glass, steel
sheet, and plastic. Kit configurations that include vacuum cups, fittings,
tubing and a mounting clip are available. Prices start at $58.
What makes this movie stand out from the typical high school sports story is that the teenagers are undocumented immigrants, and the big game is a NASA-sponsored marine robotics competition. Like many other Hollywood movies, however, Spare Parts only tells part of the story. What the film shows -- and doesn’t show -- raises important issues affecting STEM education in the US.
Instead of sifting through huge amounts of technical data looking for answers to assembly problems, engineers can now benefit from 3M's new initiative -- 3M Assembly Solutions. The company has organized its wealth of adhesive and tape solutions into six typical application areas, making it easier to find the best products to solve their real-world assembly and bonding problems.
Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
