Chief® Thinstall™ Series Mounts Now Shipping!

Thinstall™ Series ¬ - Ultra-thin Mounts for Ultra-thin TVs, offering fixed or tilt models with Glide Lock™ secure latching.

Minneapolis, MN. - - (December 2008) - www.chiefmfg.com - Chief Manufacturing, the industry leader in projector, monitor and flat panel TV mounting solutions, as well as progressive online tools, is excited to announce that the Thinstall Series of ultra -thin fixed and tilt wall mounts is now shipping!


The Thinstall™ Series MTTU™ Universal Tilt Wall Mount, the only tilt mount designed specifically for ultra -thin TVs, collapses to 0.75" (19 mm) to maintain the extreme low profile of ultra -thin flat panel TVs while offering 12ş of smooth, fingertip tilt and supporting up to 100 lbs (45.4 kg). The MSTU™ Universal Fixed Wall Mount collapses to 0.39" (10 mm), less than the width of a penny!

To maximize the impact of ultra -thin TV technology and aesthetics, the mount has to be as thin as possible. Chief developed the Thinstall Series specifically to create a seamless and clean installation for these TVs, while still providing easy installation for the professional installer, and a finish that will please the end user.


Tool -less Latching with Glide Lock™
Each Thinstall mount ships with tool -less latching, providing a secure connection with the TV at all times. Whether using the bottom pullout, or the patented tilt feature, Thinstall's Glide Lock flags ensure the mount is securely engaged with the TV.

Integrated Cable Management
Thinstall contains all of the necessary features to provide easy installation, including hands -free integrated cable management. A specially designed cable stand can be leveraged to hold the TV away from the wall providing extra room to run cables.

To create added space behind Chief's Thinstall mounts, add a Chief In -Wall Box Accessory to the installation. The In -Wall boxes simplify installation by providing an organized, recessed space behind the mount for routing excess cables and attaching surge protectors or other power accessories. Both powered (PAC521P) and non -powered models (PAC520) are available.

The tilt mounts are designed specifically for and only compatible with new ultra -thin TVs 2" deep or less. The fixed mounts are compatible with TVs that are 5" (127 mm) or less.

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.
