Canadian company, Advanced Telescopic Technologies, Inc. (ATT), has announced that it will begin development of its telescopic composite cylinder products using TSE-EcoWind® polyurethane composite resins manufactured by TSE Industries, Inc. of Clearwater, Florida. TSE was awarded the JEC Americas 2013 Innovation Award for its environmentally preferable TSE-EcoWind® polyurethane resin.

TSE-EcoWind® polyurethane composite resin makes filament wound pipes as strong and versatile as steel, yet lighter and less expensive. Products produced with TSE-EcoWind® Polyurethane Composite Resin are extremely resilient, long-lasting, surpass the specifications of existing resin technologies, and have superior burst strength (Pressure vessels-1250psi; Water Heaters-550psi). TSE's polyurethane resin is environmentally preferred to polyester and epoxy resins, being VOC, BPA and styrene-free, with ultra-low emissions.

"We have found the use of TSE-EcoWind® polyurethane composite resin and the unique application systems of TSE to be ideal for our cylinders, both in formulation and production," stated Larry Horne, ATT's Head of Project Development & Marketing. "We will be moving forward immediately with TSE, working with their R&D department to develop prototypes and testing of our multi-stage hydraulic cylinders."

Principals from the two companies first met at JEC Americas 2013, where both firms were presented with coveted Innovation Awards in their respective categories. The agreement between the two companies will be ratified at the JEC Americas 2014 Composite Show on May 14 in Atlanta.

"We couldn't be more excited to be selected by ATT to be its composite material provider of choice for this extraordinary product and are looking forward to working closely with them," said TSE President, Rick Klingel. "It further validates the innovative work our Composites Team has done in developing a powerful, versatile and environmentally preferable polyurethane resin."

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.
