The new 156 Lee Bender Jet is a
miniature, lightweight restrictor that incorporates multiple orifices in series
to lower fluid velocities and reduce the possibility of cavitation. Weighing
only 1.1 gm, this multi-orifice restrictor offers a 21 percent weight savings
over the 187 Bender Jet and is 17 percent smaller in diameter, resulting in a
corresponding reduction in installation boss size and weight.
Designed to meet the requirements of 5,000 psi systems, the 156 Bender Jet is
offered in eight standard Lohm rates, ranging from 1,900 to 9,500 Lohms, and is
protected with two integral safety screens for bidirectional flow capability.
A new service lets engineers and orthopedic surgeons design and 3D print highly accurate, patient-specific, orthopedic medical implants made of metal -- without owning a 3D printer. Using free, downloadable software, users can import ASCII and binary .STL files, design the implant, and send an encrypted design file to a third-party manufacturer.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
