Multifunctional Lathe

The TNW-3500R from Fuji Machine America (Vernon Hills, IL; www.fujimachine.com) can turn, drill and mill. The machine is designed for high-mix, high-volume applications, thanks, in part, to a gantry robot loader with a 22-lb. capacity. The machine has twin spindles. A live tool turret is used for secondary operations. The main spindle operates at up to 4,200 rpm. A work stocker with 20 stations is standard.

 

LED DRLs

Daytime running lights (DRLs) on Audi's 2008 R8 sports car consist of 24 LEDs (12 per side) arrayed in a sweeping line under the main headlight assembly. Supplied by OSRAM (www.osram.com), the TOPLED units provide 18 lumens at 140 mA. The R8's LED mania doesn't stop there, however. It has a total of 186 rear LEDs, which doesn't include those used to light the engine compartment at night.
