30-Gallon Chip Vac picks up chips and delivers them to an ordinary
30 gallon drum. It can be moved from drum to drum easily to keep
different materials separate for recycling. It is used to clean chips
from fixtures, floors and work surfaces of machining centers, lathes, saws,
mills and other industrial equipment.
compressed air powered Chip Vac creates a powerful direct flow action that
effectively moves metal, wood or plastic chips into the user's 30 gallon drum.
Dusty materials such as absorbents are trapped by the 0.1 micron filter
bag to keep the surrounding air clean. No motors to clog or wear out assures
long life with virtually no maintenance. The Chip Vac is covered by a five year

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.
