Meyer Sound has announced John McMahon as Executive Director of Operations,
a newly created position effective immediately. McMahon will play a key role
in aligning the long-term mission, operational goals, and expansion programs
across the company, while continuing to fulfill his existing duties as
Executive Director of Digital Products and Managing Director of Meyer Sound

"It's important to maintain our responsiveness in our engineering and
support services as we develop more system-based products like EXPT [cinema
system] and ConstellationR [acoustic system] while entering new vertical
markets and expanding our global presence," says Helen Meyer, executive vice
president of Meyer Sound. "John McMahon will play a key role in connecting
the different departments and making sure they are in sync as the company
builds towards further growth."

Under the strategic oversight of Helen Meyer and CEO John Meyer, McMahon

Espinosa of R&D engineering, Dean Marshall of product development, Tim Wise
of manufacturing & sustaining reliability, Mike Panko of production
services, Cliff Eldridge of finance, Rachel Archibald of marketing, and
Antonio Zacarias, who has recently been promoted to VP of worldwide sales.

McMahon joined Meyer Sound in 2005 during the acquisition of Level Control
Systems (LCS Audio) at which he was serving as CEO. Since then, he has been
working closely with consultants, sound designers, and other end users while
growing the company's digital engineering and technical teams to make Meyer
Sound digital audio technology accessible to audiences worldwide.

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.
