Mighty Wind (Tunnel): Garber's New Addition Measures Velocity, Air Flow, Temperature and More!

Often times you need to be able to measure more parameters for your product that you might not have the capacity to otherwise. This is especially true when you're trying to slim down a product, reducing its overall size or frame; or if you're making a product that needs to be able to stand up to harsher environmental elements. When it comes to measuring these parameters, having access to...
