PRESS RELEASE

June 2013

Morgan Advanced Materials (Morgan) announces the launch of Heat Flow, a completely enhanced online steady-state heat transfer calculator. The Heat Flow application allows users to simulate an unlimited number of heat transfer scenarios using Morgan's market leading insulation and refractory products, as well as other user-defined materials. Users can register to create and manage their own material databases and calculations, by visiting http://morganheatflow.com.

The Heat Flow application comes pre-loaded with nearly 400 products in ten categories offered by Morgan's Thermal Ceramics business, including Superwool® insulating fiber and Kaowool® fiber blankets, Pyro-Bloc® Modules, K® Insulating Fire Bricks, Kaocrete® and Kaolite® monolithics. Users will also have the ability to add other materials into a unique user-defined database to run calculations. The heat transfer calculations utilize the ASTM C680 formulas, with the latest 2010 revision, the international standard for estimating heat loss and surface temperatures, recognized by the mechanical and thermal engineering communities. In planned developments, the company will extend the service to other geographic regions over the coming months.

The new web-based Heat Flow application is compatible with most computer operating systems and web browsers. The material database will be regularly updated so users will always have immediate access to the latest information available.

The program allows users to save favorites and view or edit previous calculations; individual calculations can also be downloaded in PDF format. Mobile applications for smart phones and tablets are in development and are scheduled for launch in the near future.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
