FasTest's FasTest Internal (FI) series
provide fast, leak-tight connections for pressure and vacuum testing, fluid
filling and flushing applications from vacuum to 120 psi. FI connectors
are activated as compressed regulated air acts on a piston within the
connector, which expands a seal to form a leak-tight connection- without pipe
sealant, wrenches and thread damage. Air, liquid or gas media can then be
introduced through the connector to accomplish testing, filling or flushing of
series provides a solution for robotics or pick-and-place
applications that require delicate handling and/or testing. If there is an
error in an automated process that results in a part not arriving to the
specified location, a connector may still become pressurized, resulting in
over-expansion of the seal and potential damage to the connector. To regulate
this expansion of the seal-also referred to as the stroke-the FI series
now includes a stroke limiter feature. The FI series also
features a newly designed retaining clip that is recessed in the connector,
protecting it from wear and contributing to a longer-lasting connector life.
FI connectors that make them particularly reliable and
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
Healthcare might seem to be an unlikely target application for the Internet of Things technology, but recent developments show small ways that big-data is going to make an impact on patient care moving into the future.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
