The Polymaster(reg) ET automatic polymer blending system uses the motor-driven "Gatlin" distribution head, which hydraulically segments polymers into ultra-thin film platelets for maximum activation. The high-performance mixing and diluting system can handle high molecular weight liquid polymers and can deliver a diluted polymer solution at rates up to 50 gals/min. Applications include paper making and industrial and municipal water and wastewater treatment.

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.
