Salamander Designs Shows Stylish Black Graphite Finish For Premium Plasma and LCD TV Mounts

Sleek New Look Adds Designer-Friendly Color, Expands Dealer Selection and Customer Choice, and Complements Original Finish in Aluminum

CES '09, LAS VEGAS Jan. 8, 2009 - Salamander Designs, Ltd., a leading designer and manufacturer of modern furniture, seating and mounting products for Home Theater and A/V entertainment systems, has announced that its new premium flat -panel TV Mounts will also be available in a sophisticated Black Graphite finish, at the 2009 International Consumer Electronics Show.


The new matte Black Graphite finish adds a designer -friendly and décor -friendly color to the company's TV mounts, and complements the Silver Aluminum finish initially offered and still available. It offers customers an expanded selection, and is available on models from all categories of Salamander Designs' new mounting products. The finish is available now.

Salamander Designs' premium Dyno, Flexo and Plano series mounts deliver advanced, flexible solutions that make it easy to integrate display components with Salamander's acclaimed modular A/V furniture systems. Or suspend components from the ceiling with Luna series mounts. Or atop a desk with the Zoom Desk mounts. Or at eye -level on a table or sideboard with its motorized PilotMotion Tabletop mounts. Effortlessly maneuverable, the mounts and mounting accessories provide elegant, sturdy, reliable, space -saving support for all varieties and sizes of plasma and LCD flat -panel displays.

Designed to perfectly marry form and function, the TV mounts are as easy on the eye as they are to tilt, rotate or otherwise adjust. They combine high performance with precision engineering, dedication to detail, and innovative support solutions that reduce complexity without sacrificing quality. The TV mounts use premium materials, multiple castings, and extruded aluminum. Models in all the series are available in small, medium and large sizes, with some also available for extra -large displays.

Like the Silver Aluminum mounts, the new Black Graphite support systems offer advantages to dealers, custom installers and consumers. The designs are simple, yet innovatively engineered with great attention to detail. Their innovative engineering, refined design and attention to detail comprise a family of refined, aesthetically pleasing products.

On the sales floor, they provide additional all -in -one solutions to dealers who also offer A/V cabinetry, such as the 600 -plus that carry Salamander Designs' Chameleon, Synergy and Archetype furniture systems. Since mounting systems are necessary accessories in the sale of most flat -panel displays, the new Black Graphite models present similar advantages to dealers carrying plasma and LCD TVs. And allow both dealers and custom installers to conduct more business with their established vendors.

Salamander Designs' new Black Graphite -finished TV mounting systems are available now. They can be seen with Salamander Designs other outstanding products in Booth 26102, South Hall 2, Las Vegas Convention Center, during the show.

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.
