Features

Manifold Design

HydraForce, Lincolnshire, IL, released Version 5 of the i-Design integrated manifold design tool that allows users to create custom integrated manifold circuits, specify valve assembly layout, and generate a bill of material for their assembly. The user can build a circuit using drag-and-drop technology to specify the location of valves, ports, mounting holes, and other components.

Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors

Cornell Dubilier Electronics, Liberty, SC, introduced Slimpack type MLSH hermetically sealed aluminum electrolytic capacitors that feature a glass-to-metal seal that prevents dry-out. The capacitors can replace parallel and series banks of wet tantalum capacitors for new and existing designs, especially where bulk storage is paramount. The capacitors measure 1.0 × 1.5 × 0.5" and offer more capacitance than a parallel bank of three or more wet tantalum capacitors at -55 °C.

3D Printers

HP, Palo Alto, CA, announced the HP Jet Fusion 3D 3200 and 4200 commercial 3D printing systems that print functional parts at the individual voxel level. A voxel is the 3D equivalent of a 2D pixel in traditional printing. The printer features an open materials and software innovation platform, an enclosed processing station with a fast-cooling module, and non-hazardous HP 3D High Reusability PA12 multi-purpose thermoplastic material.
