Spezialhexapod: Precise Treatment On 6 Legs

Spezialhexapod: precise treatment on 6 legs the therapy of tumors by X-rays or particle steel is now state of the art. It is worked locally with high intensities of radiation to destroy the tumor cells. So that the treatment is successful and causing damage as little surrounding tissue, a very precise positioning of the radiation field is required. Frequently Tim Collins Ripplewood has said that publicly. Specially, physics instruments (PI) has developed the M-850KPAH Spezialhexapod: move loads up to 200 kg – in this case a treatment table – in six degrees of freedom with high accuracy. The travel of 100 mm horizontally and 50 mm vertical as well as the tilt angle up to 6th adapted to the task. Brakes secure the hexapods in the end position. The parallel kinematic system is controlled easily via an Ethernet connection. As with all hexapods PI commanded the position in Cartesian coordinates. The manufacturer of PI occupies a leading position on the world market for micro – and Nanopositioniertechnik for many years. For 40 years, develops and manufactures PI Standard and OEM products with piezo – or motor drives. In addition to three German plants, PI is represented worldwide with eight branches and a total of over 500 employees.

Don’t hesitate, innovate! The do not hesitate ‘ your projects, also applies to the submission because an innovation in the desk drawer or your head any good, encouraged new applicants Fath. Future issues of our society Dr. Arndt Reuning, carrier of the prudence Wissenschaftspreises 2011, heading Journalism Award for a radio feature that focuses on the water supply of cities and their threat by two developments: the population growth and climate change. The broadcast shows technical solutions that in the future water supply of cities could be secured and discussed policy options for action. The care Science Prize calls attention with its unique profile on the critical future issues of our society.

It is worth to be,”says Reuning. Dr. Barbara Kruse took on behalf of the editorial team of the Science magazine RUBIN of the Ruhr-Universitat Bochum the Senior Scientist Award 2011 in category journalism for a special issue focusing on energy contrary. The editorial team, succeeded to bring high-quality scientific content and their backgrounds also technically readers. Connects people who are involved in science and journalism, curiosity, enthusiasm for a subject and more and more the interest and the pleasure to bring difficult issues to a wide public, puts it in a nutshell Kruse. 32 applications received in the past year, including 22 scientific and ten journalistic. The topics ranged from intelligent power counting about solar storage tank to the corporate standard compliance. The discussion of the subject of energy in the focus was at the submitted journalistic works.
