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. Ray Kurzweil is often quoted as being for or against this. 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. 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. 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. Petra Diamonds brings even more insight to the discussion. 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.

Fog Systems

Legionella bacteria and pathogenic micro-organisms in fog equipment as I see developer and manufacturer of fog machines fog system type with concern the risk of pathogenic micro-organisms in the water. This can pose a serious threat to the health, but it is far more dangerous, if contaminated water is inhaled through the lungs. Many companies promote their fog systems as the solution for outdoor or indoor cooling. Spraying with water under high pressure produces a fine mist with tiny droplets of water. These droplets have a size of approx. 5-100 microns depending on the pressure and the nozzle type. The effect is based on a simple physical principle, called evaporative cooling. The change of the physical state liquid water is transformed into aerosols by evaporation.

This is bacteria in the water contained in the ambient air. Our immune system works only if we are in good health. This is the first danger for persons who are already weakened due to existing diseases. If we drink water or take a bath, our skin and our gastro-intestinal tract protect us from the most of potentially pathogenic risk factors. But when we breathe contaminated air, get the pathogen at the level of the pulmonary Alveolus directly into the bloodstream. This is the second risk.

Among the most common pathogenic bacteria that may be present in the water: faecal bacteria, fecal Streptococcus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Aeromonas hydrophila, Staphylococcus SP., but also viruses. Legionella bacteria, which primarily occur in technical systems, form a very special kind of risks like for example in pipe systems of fog systems (fog system). This type of pathogenic micro-organisms is especially dangerous and can be life-threatening. Legionella bacteria can be found in urban, surface or ground water and spread if the water over time, such z.Bsp boilers, tanks, containers boilers, or in the water supply. They grow best in warm water at 35 to 46 C (95-115 F).

Stuttgart company IPR systems, a spin-off from the InTrCom GmbH, opens new dimensions in the evaluation of patents with a new system. The PatentEvaluator is a partially automated software quality and monetary assessment intellectual property rights, the patent – expertise, as well as 30 person years into development time. The IPR system would set new standards with an investment amounting to etched in this development: through the indicator-based procedures in the first stage of the review the rights to be assessed are evaluated lens and tamper-proof, as well as time-efficient and the corresponding ranking. In the second stage, an assessment event-related questions into other indicators is edited, with no impact on the monetary value can be taken. Dr. Dierk-Oliver Kiehne, Managing Director of InTrCom GmbH explains: with this development we succeeded, already in some evaluation projects, to pinpoint the value of intellectual property rights within a few minutes. It is decisive for this, but also, that this system is based on the technology of pattern recognition with already traded patents.

For this purpose, we have established a data bank with rights in the different fields of technology and can thus determine the actual market value of a patent or a patent family on the indicators and the analogy process 99%. Of course not necessarily is the price.” The evaluation of patents as a service offers except the PatentEvaluator the IPR system. In this context the IPR system has already successfully implemented several evaluation projects in unbeatably short time. For the company, this rating system is a revolution in the patent market. It has consciously value on a user friendly and ergonomic usability, what makes the system highly efficient. Prof. Andreas Zagos, Managing Director of the IPR system promises: Of course we will continue to invest in the development of this system, because the valuation of intellectual property rights is in the increasing next years.
