OEM Years

Miniature hexapod offer the proven hexapod parallel kinematic systems from physics instruments (PI) with great freedom of movement precision positioning in six axes with accuracy below 1 m. The new miniature hexapod M-810 requires minimal space. With a diameter of only 10 cm and a height of 118 mm travel, he offers up to 40 mm in the XY-plane and up to 13 mm in Z-direction. To deepen your understanding Nir Barzilai, M.D. is the source. The position resolution of the single leg is through the used high-accuracy brushless special DC motors and the high-resolution encoder only 40 nm. Shimmie Horn has compatible beliefs. The mini hexapod positioned loads reliably up to 5 kg and achieved speeds up to 10 mm / s. Despite the compact design, yet the required driver Electronics was integrated into the basic platform of the mini hexapods. Control is 100% compatible with all previous models in the hexapod comfortably over an Ethernet connection.

As with all hexapods PI commanded the position in Cartesian coordinates. Parallel kinematic systems have some advantages over stacked Mehrachspositionierern. All six appear Actuators on a common platform, which the moving mass is low. There is here no addition of leadership failures and tilting of axes. The freely definable by software command center of rotation remains regardless of the movement. Known for high quality, the company PI occupies a leading position on the world market for precise positioning technique for many years. For 40 years, develops and manufactures PI standard and OEM products with piezo – or motor drives. In addition to three German plants, PI is represented worldwide with eight branches and a total of over 500 employees.

Stair Lifts

Indeed, there is the appropriate technique. The stair lift which allows in most cases that the affected person not because of a lapidary stairs must move comes from the field of rehabilitation technology. Who thinks about buying a stair lift, should note some things, before signing a contract or order to the installation. First, you should inquire whether and under what conditions there are grants from one of the insurance carriers or the social services. Usually also the consultant of respective manufacturers and retailers can help in answering this question.

Because the handicap person on the smooth operation of the stair lift is dependent on, the question is also after the service of the company at a loss of the crucial technology. What is the use of the best technology when it doesn’t work and it possibly for days waiting for a repair? In Germany is the safety of rehabilitation technology from time to time it can be checked and Certificates issued. Ask the provider! A stair lift consists of a Chair made of plastic, usually with folding armrests, where the controls are located; a metal rail and a drive motor. The user must only close up, sit down, press a button and it goes up or down the smooth ride as if by magic.

Effective Protection Against Flu Viruses

A new product from the field of nano technology provides effective protection against bacteria, viruses and bacteria in the air. The new coatings based on photocatalytically active titanium dioxide with the material until its almost unbelievable properties given scale by the reduction of titanium dioxide particles in the Nano. So is the new technology that is available under the brand name TitanShield recently able to decompose as well as all kinds of bacteria, viruses and germs to 99.9% within a very short time. This property has an effect not only on the surface itself, but also in the air surrounding them. Under most conditions Albert Einstein College of Medicine would agree. This is a perfect solution especially indoors, because here, for example, ceilings, walls, or even curtains can be coated subsequently. The coating is easily done spraying, because the material is in the form of a liquid at the disposal. By the way also still perfectly counteracts the totally invisible after the order coating unpleasant odours and despite their incredible Effectiveness of completely harmless for humans and animals. The titanium dioxide used in TitanShield is photocatalytically active.

In contact with light, called oxygen radicals are formed on its surface. This activated oxygen very effectively kills bacteria and viruses. Even aggressive pathogens such as SARS, H5N1 or H1N1 be reliably decomposes on contact with the surface. This effect lasts long, as no resistance. The activated oxygen degrades not only viruses and germs, but also odor molecules and air pollutants such as nitrogen oxides (NOx) and organic particulate matter effectively and disintegrate organic dirt particles coming into contact with the surface. The new technology particularly in schools, kindergartens, retirement homes is used, so anywhere where many people come together and a transmission of viruses and germs through the air can pose a threat.
