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.
A bold, gold, open-air coupe may not be the ticket to automotive nirvana for every consumer, but Lexus’ LF-C2 concept car certainly turned heads at the recent Los Angeles Auto Show. What’s more, it may provide a glimpse of the luxury automaker’s future.
The complexity of diesel engines means optimizing their performance requires a large amount of experimentation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful and intuitive tool in this, and cold flow analysis using CFD is an ideal approach to study the flow characteristics without going into the details of chemical reactions occurring during the combustion.
