The new process uses an integrated laser engraving system to deliver precise scale locations and increments, directly tied to calibration points on each meter. The calibration process streamlines the production process while improving meter accuracy to 2% of full scale over the full flow range.</p> <p>AW-Lake Company; 800-850-6110; <a href="http://www.aw-lake.com/" target="_blank">www.aw-lake.com</a></p> </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/other-components/enhanced-calibration-boost-flow-meter-accuracy#comments Other Components Mon, 16 Mar 2015 15:35:00 +0000 31531 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Hydraulic Piston Rod Lock http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/other-components/hydraulic-piston-rod-lock <div class="node-body article-body">Bear-Loc is a locking device that can be used in systems that require infinite position locking, zero backlash, and high stiffness. </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/other-components/hydraulic-piston-rod-lock" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/other-components/hydraulic-piston-rod-lock#comments Other Components Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:25:00 +0000 31371 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com A chrome alternative for corrosive environments http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/cylinders-actuators/chrome-alternative-corrosive-environments <div class="field-byline"> By M.
