Controls corporation has given a demonstration of its "Uni- mate" robot, designed to speed factory automation, to 40 business and industry magazine editors. Behind a closed door marked "Danger, Unauthorized Persons Keep Out," company officials put the invention through several "put and take" convi process and forging operations the latter part of last week. Joseph Engelberger, president of the Bethel firm, made a distinction between the science fiction robot which had independent intelligence and this "manipu lator" which he said is only an 'extension of a human being." The machine which will sell for about $25,000 can "remember" up 200 sequential commands on ts magnetic memory drum. It must be Jed through a "teaching" operation before it by tself at the normal speed of a mman being. The company said: "The robot designed to speed factory production and to cut costs by tak- ng over- repetitive routines now performed by men." The name of the "Unimate" is contraction of the company's plans and hopes lor "universal mtomation." It probably will' be used first the automotive industry accord- ng to Norman Schafler, president of Consolidated Diesel Elec- ric company of Stamford, which owns the BetheJ firm.

He said it will be used in high forging operations to eliminate nasty jobs" now per- brmed by men. He pointed out hat some forging plants have to shut down during the summer ecause of increased tempera- ures 'causing unbearable work- ng conditions. The company will produce six more trial machines which it lopes to place in heavy manufacturing industries by the end of year. It plans to do engineering and electronic operations the Danbury area but may pro duce the body of the four and one-half foot high machine elsewhere. Most automation machines on a today are designed for one operation, the company officials laid.

Mid "changes products often'make such automation obsolete before it pays for tself. In Unimation or universal automation, is avoided, because like human operator, the Lfnimate can be re- aught another job when the current job is completed." The "Unimate" looks like a miniature gun turret on destroyer. The arm' is operated lydraullcally with "wrirt" resembling i lobster claw. Mr. Engelberger noted that the man who operates the machine may know very little about elec Ironies.

MAY BIDS STATE SPUR ECONOMY SOUTHINGTON, Feb. 2J-(AP) ivernment should give "concrete encouragement to our economic system" to foster economic growth, Republican State Chairman Edwin H. said night. He said it should be the ohjec live of all levels of government to -aid the economic system not only i preserving present jobs and business but also in attracting and developing new industry. In a speech before the Southington Chamber of Commerce, May said "a continuing development of our spiritual and economic resources is the only sure way to achieve, the goals envisioned by our founding fathers."

economy, he said, would be "to continue to improve our interior road network to make easier for our workers to reach places of' employment and 'or our industries to move their products to terminals and mar- cets." He also called a state-encouraged financing plan to help domestic industries acquire modern facilities through local, privately-financed industrial founda- ions.
