Trident hoses.Trident Water-Line Hoses

For too long, we have used the same hoses for hot and cold water, which can be confusing not only for installers, but also for the end users who would like to easily identify hoses on their boats. Thanks to Trident Marine (Canonsburg, Pennsylvania), everything just became significantly less complicated with new 165 and 166 series “hot” and “cold” water-line hoses. FDA-approved for drinking water, these hoses are durable and designed to look good while getting the job done.

Gobius tank sensor.Monitor Black Water Levels from Outside the Tank

Gobius tank sensors, represented by Nixon Marine Global (Miami, FL), monitor black-water levels from outside the tank with through-wall technology. Gobius senses the local mechanical impedance of the tank wall within the audible spectra, rather than transmitting and receiving ultrasonic pulses. This Swedish technology allows for a more reliable and accurate measuring technique for waste water in metal and plastic tanks without removing the tank or drilling holes.

Thermwood logo.Thermwood’s LSAM System

Thermwood Corporation (Dale, Indiana) promises to lower cost and reduce the build cycle for tool production with its new Large Scale Additive Manufacturing (LSAM) system for printing large 3D reinforced thermoplastic composite parts. With a two-step, near-net-shape printing technique, the LSAM simultaneously prints and trims on the same machine using separate gantries. The LSAM offers three different high-output print heads, ranging from 150 lbs/hour to 500 lbs/hour and is ideal for producing tooling, masters, molds, fixtures, patterns, and plugs.

ITW Plexus adhesives.Plexus Galvanized Bonder Adhesives

Plexus Galvanized Bonder Adhesives from ITW Polymers Adhesives North America (Danvers, Massachusetts) permanently bond galvanized metals and dissimilar substrates. Specially formulated with no inhibition to zinc to bond hot-dip G60, G90, and most other galvanized metals, these low-VOC 1:1 ratio methacrylate adhesives require no primers, little or no surface preparation, and cure rapidly at room temperature. Once cured, the end-product exhibits superior strength; toughness; sheer, peel, and impact resistance; and fatigue endurance.
