Bayer MaterialScience LLC met Safety Syringes’ requirements with Makrolon® Rx1851 polycarbonate, a low-viscosity resin with enhanced internal mold release technology that provides increased design flexibility for complicated parts.
The product, a single-use, anti-needle-stick device for pre-filled injectable syringes, is composed of two telescoping plastic components and a spring. The body component of the device is injection molded using the Makrolon Rx1851 resin.
The medical grade resin is supplied in pellet form for injection-molded applications. It is available in clear tint as well as in other Rx Medical colors from Bayer MaterialScience LLC’s LEDA® compounded color technology, all of which meet U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-Modified ISO 10993, Part 1, “Biological Evaluation of Medical Devices” tests.
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.
