MIT researchers have developed an automated system that designs and 3-D prints robotic actuators, which are optimized and automatically created, which is almost impossible for a human to do.
Nuclear power facilities are equipped with large diesel generators that supply emergency power for important safety circuits in the event of a situation where a power outage requires critical pumps to operate and safety shutdown the reactor.
Northwestern Engineering researchers have developed a chip-based terahertz frequency comb that works at room temperature and is designed for medical and biological screening.
Field pump performance testing provides the expert with developed head, capacity and efficiency data under normal (or abnormal) operating conditions.
Duke University researchers are using the physics of airflows to locate gaseous leaks more quickly in complex scenarios for processing and chemical applications. See video.
A study from Flow Research projects the worldwide flowmeter market will grow from $7 billion to almost $9 billion by 2023 as the oil & gas industry continues recovering.
AW-Lake's Hazardous Area Rated Flow Sensor with a choice of either sinking or sourcing digital output and a choice of 316 stainless steel or aluminum junction box; or for areas with limited space, a version with no junction box at all.
The TASI Group has acquired Sierra Instruments, a flow measurement instrumentation manufacturer.
Researchers have developed a sensitive heat sensor that is flexible, transparent, and printable and could have potential for a wide range of applications – from electronic skin to smart buildings.
Human-robot collaboration (HRC) is becoming more common, but humans still need to be aware of their machine counterparts. Companies have developed techniques to make it easier for humans and robots to safely interact and improve plant floor productivity.
