order to assist equipment manufacturers in meeting increased demands for
enhanced vehicle performance, higher system efficiencies and improved
environmental compliance, HydraForce is releasing a new line of HyPerformanceTM cartridge valves. These valves
target the construction, paving, agriculture, material handling, forestry, industrial
and other high-performance markets.
They are designed to facilitate reliable and continuous
operating pressures as high as 350 bar and 420 bar, intermittent. HydraForce will
offer a complete line of these valves by 2012. When the line is complete, it
will cover a range from the common -10 cavity to a metric -42 cavity with flow
ratings to 530 lpm and will be available in a variety of valve configurations,
including solenoid (poppet and spool), electro-proportional, directional, flow
and pressure control types.
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.
