miniature, motor-controlled needle valve, the MNV-1010-303,
is ideal for applications which require precise flow or pressure control in a
limited space. It offers excellent control due to a high-reduction drive
mechanism and low-angle valve needle. The valve is suitable for
control of flow rates or pressures and it remains stable when subjected to wide
temperature fluctuations. It is manufactured in corrosion-resistant 303 stainless steel and weighs 32 gm.
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.
