Sany India has forayed into new segments of equipment last few years, and has firmed plans to grow by leaps and bounds. 8 Inch Diesel Water Pumps When a construction equipment (CE) manufacturer announces that they have rolled out the 1,000th excavator and 1,001st transit mixer machine from a single plant alone in a short span of nine months, and this at a time when the CE market has not been kind to equipment makers, it is a remarkable achievement. “There has been a substantial improvement in the equipment market last seven to eight months,” said Sanjay Saxena, vice-president & BU head, heavy equipment & concrete, Sany Heavy Industry India. Saxena says that it is the Group’s vision to be the Number One in five years in construction equipment in India. It has also set its sights to grow more than 60% year-on-year. And they seem to have done their math. In order to achieve such targets, early this year, the China-based heavy equipment major committed to invest $4 billion for setting up manufacturing units and wind farms in India. This is a new sector for the com...

El Nino Swings More Violently in the Industrial Age, Hard Evidence Says

Credit: Georgia Tech / Grothe / Cobb lab El Ninos have been very intense in our times, which stands to worsen storms, drought, and coral bleaching in El Nino years. A new study has found compelling evidence in the Pacific Ocean that the stronger El Ninos are part of a climate pattern that is new, strange and appears unique to the industrial age. This is the first known time that enough physical evidence spanning millennia has come together to allow researchers to say that definitively. The data show demonstrably that El Ninos, La Ninas, and the climate phenomenon that drives them have been swinging more broadly in the era of human-induced climate change. “What we’re seeing in the last 50 years is outside any natural variability. It leaps off the baseline. Actually, we even see this for the entire period of the industrial age,” said Kim Cobb, the study’s principal investigator and Georgia Power Chair and ADVANCE Professor in the Georgia Institute of Technology’s School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences. “There were three extremely strong El Nino-La Nina events in...

New Short-Range UHF Reader Targets Automotive Suppliers – 2019-04-16 – Page 1

Industrial automation sensors company SICK has released a new UHF RFID read-write device focused on assembly applications in conveyor systems in tight spaces, as well as on handling and assembly lines. SICK’s RFU61x reader, with integrated Ethernet and fieldbus interfaces, is intended to provide an alternative to 13.56 MHz HF RFID technology used at assembly sites. The company calls the RFU61x the smallest and smartest industrial UHF reader on the market. The device measures 80 millimeters by 92 millimeters by 38 millimeters (3.15 inches by 3.6 inches by 1.5 inches). SICK demonstrated the new reader at this year’s RFID Journal LIVE! conference, held this month in Phoenix, Ariz. Active Rfid Sticker Label Suppliers for Sale The company has designed the UHF device to capture tag data in tight spaces, with a range that is adjustable to typical HF read distances. One feature, says Philipp Bordne, SICK’s RFID product manager, is the design of antenna characteristics that provide a well-defined reading zone. In that way, tagged items, such as small components under assembly, can be reliably identified in spaces where stray reads would be detrimental, despite the fact ...

Blockstream founders, staff allegedly scamming millions in crypto

It seems as though the issues surrounding blockchain firm Blockstream just blew up, if a recent report is accurate. There have already been several issues about how the company’s main players conducted business, but this latest revelation is a true game-changer. It appears that the company brass, and other employees, are siphoning funds from investors. The issue is so egregious that it required its own website to be built. Cashbleed.com goes into great detail about how employees at the company have been stealing “millions” of dollars in SegWitCoin (BTC) and transferring it to their personal wallets. The site leads off by asserting, “We have uncovered Blockstream, a major startup in the cryptocurrency industry has created a sophisticated scheme to siphon millions of dollars’ worth of Bitcoin from company wallets into the personal wallets of its employees and founders. This scheme is ongoing and makes it very difficult for investors to get a return on their investment.” The scheme is perpetrated rather simply. Cashbleed points out that an employee joins the company and negotiates to have some of his or her salary paid in BTC at below market rate. This is provided over a five-year ...

Gillian Jagger, Sculptor Whose Medium Was Nature, Dies at 88

Her sculptures, which often incorporated tree trunks and animal carcasses, emphasized commonality and connection between humans, animals and the earth. Gillian Jagger, an artist guided by a deep-seated connection to nature and best known for imposing sculptures and installations that often incorporated tree trunks and animal carcasses, died on Oct. 21 in Ellenville, in upstate New York. She was 88. Her death was confirmed by her wife and only survivor, Connie Mander. Ms. Mander did not specify a cause, but said Ms. Jagger had had difficulty breathing at their home and was taken to a hospital, where she died. Ms. Jagger was a fiercely independent creator who adhered to her own instincts and vision; though her work has affinities with feminist art, Land Art and Post-Minimalism, she never aligned with any prevailing styles or movements. She hit upon one of her signature methods while living on the Upper West Side of Manhattan in the 1960s. She began capturing direct impressions of the world around her by casting unlikely forms in plaster, like a cat that had been stoned to death by children and, most famously, manhole covers. Those works brought on a flurry of media attention that ...

Planned Obsolescence Isn’t A Thing, But It Is Your Fault

The common belief is that big companies are out to get the little people by making products that break after a short period, or with substantially new features or accessories that make previous models obsolete, requiring the user to purchase a new model. This conspiracy theory isn’t true; there’s a perfectly good explanation for this phenomenon, and it was caused by the consumers, not the manufacturers. When we buy the hottest, shiniest, smallest, and cheapest new thing we join the wave of consumer demand that is the cause of what often gets labelled as “Planned Obsolescence”. In truth, we’re all to blame for the signals our buying habits send to manufacturers. Dig in and get your flamewar fingers fired up. The idea makes sense; some bigwigs in marketing realized that if they sell a product that will expire, break, or become unserviceable after a certain period of time (long enough that people won’t complain), then the consumer will return and buy a newer, better product. Why build a product that lasts a long time and only get one sale when you can build a product that breaks after a few years and get a few repeat sales? We can point to microwaves that are older than we are that...
