Swiss Plastics Expo: Expertise straight from practice

During the Innovation Symposium at the Swiss Plastics Expo, experts will report on current issues in the plastics industry. In addition, visitors will benefit from showcase presentations in which exhibitors detail their experiences and projects. The Swiss Plastics Expo, from 21-23 January, offers 260 exhibitors. The national and international machine, mould and material suppliers and contract manufacturers will showcase practical and new solutions with plastic. The Swiss Plastics Expo sees itself not only as a trade fair, but a place for knowledge transfer and networking, with individually designed further training is included in the exhibition ticket. On two stages, which can be found in the middle of the two exhibition halls, 106 presentations will be delivered over the three days. These are divided into 36 keynotes , which give insight into science and industry, as well as 72 showcase presentations, in which projects and applications are presented.  The programme of the Innovation Symposium is divided into 16 main topics, enabling attendees to find the topics relevant to them. All lectures in the Innovation Symposium are described in detail on the website. A visit to the Inno...

VIDEO: Big forage units find their own path, load own way

OMAHA, Neb. — Claas of America gave its dealers and various media a sneak peek at the company’s new line of self-propelled forage harvesters last month but Aug. 27 was the official reveal during the Farm Progress Show in Decatur, Illinois. New in the field are the Jaguar 900 series, 800 series and Terra Trac forage harvesters, which can be equipped with Orbis flex headers designed for ground contour control. “We’ve increased our horsepower up to 925 horsepower for the producer up in Canada that needs more power to get more tons done in a day for their big feedlots or even their dairies,” said forage harvester product manager Matt Jaynes. The company lays claim to higher throughput, consistent chop quality, fuel efficiency and various time-saving features as part of the new line. The Jaguar 990 has 925 h.p. and the 970 has an in-line six engine with 790 h.p. They come equipped with autonomous CEMOS (Claas Electronic Machine Optimization System) technology that automatically adjusts horsepower and speed according to the conditions. The units can steer themselves using a windrow pilot, and a camera on the spout allows it to point product flow in the right direction and arc, said Ja...

Climate Change and the (Re)Insurance Implications | Traub Lieberman Straus & Shrewsberry LLP

The issue of Climate Change (sometimes referred to as “global warming”) is increasingly permeating virtually every topic of discussion and we do not believe the concern is going to dissipate anytime soon. Rightly so, as many of the scientific models present ongoing catastrophic damage scenarios affecting persons, property, businesses, governments, economies, ecosystems and natural resources, to name but a few. The scope and scale of estimated damage from Climate Change is unprecedented and the costs to mitigate the risk no less daunting. Insurers and their policyholders face high exposure risk from Climate Change on many fronts, including general liability claims for third-party bodily injury and property damage, D&O claims for a Company’s failure to properly disclose climate-related risk to its business and/or failure to “align its business model with a low-carbon future” and first-party loss, including business interruption. While, to date, there have been minimal coverage actions relating to Climate Change, we expect that to change, given the increasing number of underlying lawsuits and related activity, coupled with the staggering liability that is at stake.

How boss Chloe, 25, dragged Thermotex into modern world

A university graduate who went to do work experience at her parents’ engineering firm is targeting huge growth for the business after taking charge and dragging it into the 21st century. Chloe Watmore was a 22-year-old economics graduate with no manufacturing experience when she joined thermal engineering firm Thermotex. The Chesterfield-based company had five staff, no growth plans and and was making bespoke and customised products by hand with pencils, scissors, tape measures and sewing machines. Her aim was to gain some work experience in business development as she job hunted for her dream corporate role with Apple or Google in London. Miss Watmore, now managing director, revolutionised the factory’s processes, cleared the company of negativity and built a new team of young professionals. She has grown international trade and led the company to record growth, doubling its revenue to over £3m. The 25-year-old has won numerous awards and is now targeting £15m turnover for the business by 2020. Thermotex’s custom-designed thermal insulation, heat tracing and bespoke protective casings maintain correct temperatures for equipment and pipework relied on by global clients in the e...

Xylem’s Flygt Pump Helps Wash 250,000 Tons of Tomatoes a Year

The Italian tomato processing company Rodolfi has been in operation for 120 years, picking and preserving tomatoes from local fields. Today, the company processes 250,000 tons of tomatoes per year, but sand in the water was causing too much wear on their pumps. The company switched to Xylem’s Flygt 3171 pump with Hard Iron, and after one year of use there are still no traces of wear. Rodolfi has conquered Italian and international markets with brands such as Ardita, Ortolina and Alpino, without ever departing from its values, founded on a respect for nature and farmers. The company only picks tomatoes at optimum ripeness and processes them within a few hours of harvesting.When the tomatoes ripen in summer, trucks continuously load and unload the tomatoes, which are promptly processed. Rodolfi’s plants are equipped with extremely reliable systems, because even a few hours of standstill and summer heat could ruin the tomatoes, leading to a huge financial loss.As soon as internal quality control accepts a truck’s contents, the tomatoes need to be washed, before they can be processed industrially. Given the associated costs and environmental impact, this is no trivial task. Having b...

Radio Frequency Magnetron Sputtering Deposition of TiO 2 Thin Films and Their Perovskite Solar Cell Applications

Thank you for visiting nature.com. You are using a browser version with limited support for CSS. To obtain the best experience, we recommend you use a more up to date browser (or turn off compatibility mode in Internet Explorer). In the meantime, to ensure continued support, we are displaying the site without styles and JavaScript. In this work, we report a physical deposition based, compact (cp) layer synthesis for planar heterojunction perovskite solar cells. Typical solution-based synthesis of cp layer for perovskite solar cells involves low-quality of thin films, high-temperature annealing, non-flexible devices, limitation of large-scale production and that the effects of the cp layer on carrier transport have not been fully understood. In this research, using radio frequency magnetron sputtering (RFMS), TiO2 cp layers were fabricated and the thickness could be controlled by deposition time; CH3NH3PbI3 films were prepared by evaporation & immersion (E & I) method, in which PbI2 films made by thermal evaporation technique were immersed in CH3NH3I solution. The devices exhibit power conversion efficiency (PCE) of 12.1% and the photovoltaic performance can maintain 77% ...

By Robert Leichti, PhDSmall-diameter nails and screws (i.e. less than 6 mm [0.23 in.]) are vital

By Robert Leichti, PhDSmall-diameter nails and screws (i.e. less than 6 mm [0.23 in.]) are vital to the performance of wood-frame construction. These fasteners (Figure 1) play a crucial role in: The National Building Code of Canada (NBC) provides prescriptive guidance for fastening typical wood-frame construction. At the same time, the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) O86-09, Engineering Design in Wood, provides rational mechanics-based analysis methods for engineered design. Both of these resources rely on CSA B111, Wire Nails, Spikes, and Staples, as the reference specification for small-diameter driven fasteners. That standard was first approved in 1974, and although it was reaffirmed as recently as 2003, it was not updated. As a result, CSA B111 was a useful guide to driven fasteners but it did not reflect the many changes occurring since the early 1970s. These include the general use of power-nailers and fasteners designed to be installed with them, modifications in chemical wood treatments, corrosive conditions associated with those chemicals, and corrosion-resistant coatings. Now, CSA B111 has been withdrawn, leaving NBC and CSA O86-09 without a reference standard for...
