Chief® Provides Flat Panel Tilt at the Touch of a Button

The new CM8T15U™ automatically adjusts to preset positions for viewing.

Minneapolis, MN. - - (August 2008) - www.chiefmfg.com - Chief Manufacturing, the industry leader in flat panel and projector mounting solutions, announces the release of the CM8T15U Automated Tilt Mount, providing smooth flat panel tilt at the touch of a button. The CM8 provides automated tilt when you turn on your TV and when the TV is powered off, it automatically returns to a low -profile, flush position.


Often times, obstacles in a room require a flat panel to be mounted higher than the ideal viewing height. The CM8 works to solve this problem, providing smooth, motorized tilt 2 degrees up and 13 degrees down. When not in use, the CM8 blends into décor, featuring an extremely low -profile design, at only 3.6" (91 mm) from the wall.

For easy installation, the CM8 mounts directly to studs and is designed with Chief's exclusive Glide Lock™ latching mechanism, to ensure a secure installation. The mount features a universal interface to fit most flat panel TVs on the market, and can be used with an IR remote control or optical sensor.

Universal Robots Add a Sense of Touch in New e-Series Cobots with Built-in Force/Torque Sensor and Re-Designed User Interface

With the new e-Series cobot line, Universal Robots raises the bar for cobots, adding unique new features while significantly strengthening the four core principles defining collaborative robots: fast set-up, easy programming, flexible deployment, and safe operation. With a new built-in, tool-centric Force/Torque sensor the e-Series is ready to take on applications requiring force control right out of the box. A repeatability of 30 micron means the new cobots are suitable for very precise finishing, assembly and electronics tasks. A re-designed user interface decreases cognitive load and expedites program development, while a new externally accessible, 500Hz system bus enables more complex motion control algorithms or profiles.
