SACRAMENTO, Calif., Jan. 27, 2015--- Interstate Plastics will appear at the MD&M West Conference to highlight their extensive line of full and cut-to-size plastic sheet, rod, tube and accessories for industries including manufacturing and manufacturing equipment, engineering and design, as well as packaging and medical grade plastics.

The trade show, organized by UBM Canon, features eight expositions including WestPack, PLASTEC West, Electronics West, AeroCon West, Pacific Design and Manufacturing, ATX West and Quality Expo, with a total of over 2,200 suppliers across a plethora of markets.

Mike Feld, the head of Interstate Plastics' Medical Division said, "For customers visiting one of the other seven great expositions, don't forget to visit the Intestate Plastics' booth, #2882 in Hall C, to see how we can provide your solutions in plastics."

For emerging technology and equipment, Interstate Plastics offers a wide range of high performance plastics including PEEK, PPS, PET, PVC, PTFE, ABS, phenolics and glass epoxy sheet, rod and tube that aid in the development of circuit boards, automotive and aerospace innovations, casings and housings, lighting fixtures, fans, cabinets, and many component parts within computers and other machinery.

Within manufacturing and manufacturing process industries, customers find UHMW, Delrin, acetal, nylon, and polypropylene particularly helpful in both equipment and consumer product concept and design. From part prototyping and testing to a final product or machine, Interstate Plastics provides solutions for the manufacture of gears and sprockets, bearings, manifolds, lines, emission control, light housings and pumps.

Medical grade plastics include Celcon, Radel, Tecanyl MT, PEEK and polypropylene; well suited for use in applications including trial heads and cups for hip implants, knee provisional trials and impactor applications and instrument handles. Newest to the Interstate Plastics' medical product line is Propylux HS colored rod, exclusively produced by Westlake Plastics. Propylux HS rods are the material of choice for orthopedic applications due to the product's biocompatibility compliance, dimensional stability and chemical resistance.

Packaging industries have also seen a large consumption of LDPE and HDPE plastic packaging materials, as well as other polyethylene used in the construction of containers, seals, protective covers and more.

The MD&M West Conference will be open on Tuesday, February 10 and Wednesday, February 11 (10:00am - 5:00pm), and on Thursday, February 12 (10:00am - 4:30pm).

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.
