Heavy-duty concealed hinges are available in stainless steel, steel, and aluminum, and are stocked in two different lengths and thicknesses: 0.81 inch and 1.26 inches long and 0.075 and 0.090 inch thick. The larger size features reinforcing ribs to secure heavier doors. The design and tight tolerances of the concealed hinges permit assemblers to achieve smooth, unbroken surfaces on metal cabinets. The door swings out and clear of the cabinet frame along the radius of the movable leaf.
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.
