Fiber laser cutting on a large scale The FABRICATOR STAMPING Journal The Welder The Tube and Pipe Journal The FABRICATOR en Español The Additive Report The FABRICATOR The Welder The Tube and Pipe Journal STAMPING Journal The Additive Report The FABRICATOR en Español

Chicago Metal Fabricators’ new fiber laser cutter is not a gantry-style machine. The X axis is a steel structure that runs down the middle of the cutting chamber. It is designed to provide more support to the high-speed cutting head. It also allows for access across the entire length of the laser cutting bed. Nestled on the city’s southwest side, Chicago Metal Fabricators has been at work for more than 100 years. But even at this age it has shown a willingness to adopt the latest technology—most recently one of the largest fiber laser cutting machines in the U.S. If you were traveling in the fabricator’s neighborhood, which it shares with Chicago-style bungalows and other single-family homes, you might be surprised by the size of the fabricator’s facility. It covers 200,000 square feet, about half of a city block. Since its founding in 1908, the building has expanded one room at a time. Brick-walled rooms give way to other brick-walled rooms until you get to larger bays in the back of the facility. In the early 20th century, Chicago Metal Fabricators fabricated metal cabinets and duct-work, using presses that were powered by line shaft pulleys and flywheels attached near the cei...

A ‘Lost Decade’: Haiti Still Struggles To Recover 10 Years After Massive Earthquake

On the wind-whipped hills north of Haiti’s capital, Port-au-Prince, Berthenid Dasny holds the keys to the gated memorial erected for Haiti’s earthquake victims. Thousands of bodies are buried here in a mass grave dug after a magnitude 7 earthquake shook the country on Jan. 12, 2010. “They’ve forgotten about this place; it should look better than this,” Dasny says as she walks past the overgrown grass, rusted metal statues and brittle brush. For the past year, she has been the memorial’s groundskeeper, though she has never been paid. “You must remember the humans buried here. They were just like us and should always be honored, not forgotten,” she says. Dasny believes some of her own relatives who were never found after the quake are buried in the grave. The earthquake’s main shock lasted almost 30 seconds. A series of aftershocks soon followed. An estimated 220,000 died, though Haiti’s official estimates are higher. Some 1.5 million people were displaced, according to the International Organization for Migration. About 300,000 were injured, and large parts of the country were buried under tons of twisted metal and conc...

Call to improve Ipley Crossroads accident blackspot

ANOTHER serious accident involving a cyclist has spurred an ongoing campaign for improvements to be made to notorious New Forest blackspot Ipley Crossroads. Cycling UK’s campaigns group is pressuring Hampshire County Council to strengthen safety at the junction, near Applemore – the scene of numerous fatal and serious-injury collisions involving cyclists. David Bensley, a Cycling UK member, was the latest rider to fall foul of the junction when he was badly hurt in an incident with a car on Wednesday 15th January. It happened shortly after 12.30pm as he was taking part in a Southampton Cycling and Touring Club ride through the Forest. As reported in the A&T, the impact hurled the 50-year-old unconscious into a water-filled ditch, from which he had to be pulled by fellow club members. The Hampshire and Isle of Wight air ambulance and a South Central Ambulance Service hazardous area response team were among the emergency crews which responded to the incident near Marchwood Inclosure. Having suffered serious head and leg injuries, Mr Bensley, from Southampton, was taken by road ambulance to the city’s general hospital, accompanied by medics from the helicopter. Police closed t...

New electric bicycle deals you won’t want to miss – Early Black Friday sales

We’re still more than a week away from Black Friday, but that hasn’t stopped many electric bicycle and scooter retailers from starting their big sales early.  Check out all the ways to save a heap of cash on your new e-bike or electric scooter today! I recently reviewed the Lectric XP folding fat tire electric bicycle and found it to be an incredible bang-for-your-buck deal. The e-bike can hit speeds of up to 28 mph, has a range of 25-50 miles and folds to fit in tight spaces. It even comes with higher-end parts than you’d expect, like disc brakes, full-metal fenders, built-in lights and a strong rear rack. Kent’s step through e-bike is a great option for city commuters. Its step-through design makes it easy to mount and its large 700c wheels are perfect for rolling over speed bumps, potholes, curbs or anything else the urban jungle can throw at you. This 20 mph e-bike can travel up to 20 miles on a charge and is already a deal at its normal price of $798. Eahora’s X3 cute little folding electric bike is a great option for anyone who wants a full-featured e-bike that takes up a small amount of space (and a small amount of space in your wallet). The bike has an MSRP of $899 and ...

Injection Molding: Faster, Smarter, More Efficient Machines Tackle Sustainable Molding at K 2019 : Plastics Technology

Blazing speed plus shrinking energy consumption supported the “green” theme at the big show. Smarter controls and growing connectivity were another key focus. A profusion of new and upgraded injection machinery at K highlighted twin themes of Circular Economy and Smart Manufacturing. While presses keep getting faster, they also grow ever more energy efficient in kWh/lb of plastic processed. The vast majority of injection machines at the show were all-electric, hybrid, and/or servohydraulic. This year’s exhibits featured machines equipped to process large amounts of post-consumer recycle (PCR) or biobased materials. Reducing waste and downtime also contributes to more efficient and therefore more sustainable manufacturing. In that vein, K 2019 saw a continued push toward greater self-regulation in processing, greater connectivity between machines, and improved communication between humans and machines as milestones along the road to Smart Factories and Industry 4.0. The following report presents news not covered in our September show preview and elsewhere for a more complete picture of injection molding news at the show.

What is the World Cup trophy called, how much gold is in it, and where is the original cup now?

News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services. Used since 1974, it has been lifted by Diego Maradona, Zinedine Zidane and Ronaldo among many others and weighs in at a hefty 6.2kg. FIFA’s regulations now state that the trophy, unlike its predecessor, cannot be won outright, with the winners of the tournament receiving a bronze replica. Called Victory before 1946, it was renamed in honour of Fifa president Jules Rimet who initiated the competition back in 1929. Famously stolen in 1966 and then found by Pickles the dog, Bobby Moore lifted the trophy in England’s only World Cup triumph. Rimet had stipulated before his death that if a team won the tournament three times they could keep the gong – and Brazil managed to achieve that feat in 1970. 1000mm Graphite Electrode High Quality Products ©News Group Newspapers Limited in England No. 679215 Registered office: 1 London Bridge Street, London, SE1 9GF. “The Sun”, “Sun”, “Sun Online” are registered trademarks or trade names of News Group Newspapers Limited.
