An increasing number of material grade specifications of
VICTREX Polymer Solutions fulfill Bosch standards; BN18-O1 and BN18-X1 which
set out the properties and requirements for unfilled and reinforced PEEK
polymer - already successfully used in the automotive industry for many years -
also fulfils the N2580-1 requirements. This standard defines prohibited and
declarable substances contained in materials, thereby ensuring implementation
of legal requirements and the Bosch customers' needs. Moreover, VICTREX can
confirm GADSL as well as RoHS compliance for the released grades. Additionally,
all raw materials required for the manufacture of this high-performance
thermoplastic have already been pre-registered pursuant to REACH.
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.
