The IFH Group's newmobile
lubrication system provides storage and dispensing of lubricants, cutting oils,
bearing oils, hydraulic fluids, transmission fluids and engine oils for
plants requiring lubrication maintenance at multiple locations over a large
The new system is delivered on a
pallet that allows it to be placed by a forklift in the bed of a heavy-duty
pickup truck for go-anywhere mobility anywhere within the plant. It includes
two 50 gal and two 25 gal steel containers with PVC sight gauges. Air-operated
piston pumps on top of each container provide a 5:1 pumping ratio while filters
on the side of each container remove any dirt or small particulates. A ball
valve manifold attached to the compressor in the center of the system allows
users to turn on one, two or all four of the pumps at any given time. Startup
is quick with the system's on-board gas-operated air compressor.
At the dispensing end, the system
provides retractable hose reels with metered dispensing control handles
to show how much fluid has been dispensed. A large steel tool box with cabinets
is placed underneath the reels for storage.
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.
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
