MATERIALS: Devcon methacrylate adhesives have been certified by the GREENGUARD® Environmental Institute under the institute’s stringent air-quality standards. The adhesives were certified under the GREENGUARD Children & SchoolsSM program as low-emissions building materials suitable for indoor use, including use for educational, healthcare, residential, and commercial environments where children or sensitive adults spend extended periods of time.The certified adhesives - Plastic WelderTM, Plastic Welder IITM, Metal WelderTM, Metal Welder IITM, Composite Welder FSTM, Clear WelderTM, Flex WelderTM and Flex Welder FCTM - offer high-performance bonding for a variety of applications.
These tough, structural adhesives require minimal surface preparation and cure rapidly at room temperature to load-bearing bonds that withstand weathering, humidity, and wide variations in temperature. All offer exceptional flexibility, high tensile and shear strengths, and excellent resistance to peel and impact. Applied with pneumatic or manual applicator guns, Devcon methacrylates are mixed as they are dispensed. Thixotropic nonsagging gels or pastes, they will not run or drip when used on vertical or overhead applications.
Are they robots or androids? We're not exactly sure. Each talking, gesturing Geminoid looks exactly like a real individual, starting with their creator, professor Hiroshi Ishiguro of Osaka University in Japan.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
