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.
The FDA has just released draft guidelines for using 3D printing in the design, development, and manufacture of regulated medical products. Although the recommendations are non-binding, they do set some much-needed parameters.
