Parker Flared Tubing eliminates the need to
purchase additional tooling and flanging supplies and delivers a finished
product for your shelf instead of an interim component. Flares are available in a variety of styles
and each tube is customized to fit your application. In addition, PTFE and FEP flared tubing is
100 percent traceable from the resin to the finished product.
All flaring services are performed
in the on-site Valued Added Service Department, eliminating additional freight
costs and time. When needed, customer fittings can be added to the tubing
before the flare is added. Sizes range from .010 I.D. up to 4 inch O.D., with
wall thicknesses ranging between .010 up to .090 inch, depending on size.
Truchard will be presented the award at the 2014 Golden Mousetrap Awards ceremony during the co-located events Pacific Design & Manufacturing, MD&M West, WestPack, PLASTEC West, Electronics West, ATX West, and AeroCon.
In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
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.
