What do we Want? Efficiency!

Air compressors are already an extremely effective means of distributing energy, but new screw compressors are now expected to meet the demands of today’s market – they must use a minimal amount of energy. Producers are scrambling to create new lines of compressors that meet this unique need and show…

New Invention Can Fabricate Mini-Organs And Human Tissues

Yes, bio-fabrication machines which manufacture living tissue structures do already exist, but currently they are massive, a task to operate and also very expensive. BioBots have created a machine which is basically a low-cost 3D printer, small in size and also very efficient. BioBots have created the machine to be…

Open Up A New World Of Capability With An Air Compressor

An air compressor is not often considered when it comes to home maintenance and construction jobs. A good air compressor will open up a new world of capability to you. Beyond inflating tires, the ability to blow-clean, blow-dry and use air tools more justifies the moderate expense in the long…
