Exair's safety air
gun has a small diameter nozzle and extension that will fit into tight spaces
with a strong blowing force. The Precision Safety Air Gun uses Exair's Nano Super Air Nozzle which has been engineered
to maximize entrainment of room air while minimizing compressed air
consumption. The Nano Super Air Nozzle is available in a rugged Type 316
Stainless Steel or PEEK plastic to provide non-marring protection should the
nozzle come in contact with other surfaces. The PEEK nozzle provides resistance
to chemicals, fatigue and temperatures up to 320F (160C).
The Precision Safety Air Gun has an ergonomic design to keep the hand in a
comfortable position. A hanger is provided for convenient storage or mounting
to a tool balancer. Prices start at $53.
In many engineering workplaces, there’s a generational conflict between recent engineering graduates and older, more experienced engineers. However, a recent study published in the psychology journal Cognition suggests that both may have something to learn from another group: 4 year olds.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
