Many food processing machines use vibrators as part of their design.Since a lot of these machines are imported, finding the right vibrator can sometimes be a problem.As the Australian distributor for both NetterVibration in Germany and Martin Engineering in the USA, Vibrations Systems & Solutions is able to give advice on the most appropriate vibrator for individual needs and to supply many of the vibrators used with equipment in the food industry.The company’s range includes electric, pneumatic and, to a lesser extent in the food industry, hydraulic models, with a large stockholding in Perth.Vibrators not in stock can usually be into store from the factory in 7–10 days.The electrical units are manufactured to ATEX 2D while full 2GD models (both electric and pneumatic) are available for potentially explosive atmospheres such as flour applications.
At the end of the 1920s, low Sweden's main observatory is still on a small hill inside the city of Stockholm.But the light from the growing city, and the outdated equipment had made it difficult for stjärnskådarna.It inspired the banker Knut Wallenberg, to use his influence to get a new observatory to a position.It had free horizon, fewer cloudy days and the less ambient light than the old observatory hill.the Building was designed by Axel Anderberg, an architect who is happy to work with tegelkåkar of the heavier battle – he had previously created the museum of Natural history.It had five domes and eight buildings.
New submitter chrissfoot shares a report from The Associated Press: The Associated Press has obtained a recording of what some U.S. Embassy workers heard in Havana in a series of unnerving incidents later deemed to be deliberate attacks.The recording, released Thursday by the AP, is the first disseminated publicly of the many taken in Cuba of mysterious sounds that led investigators initially to suspect a sonic weapon.The recordings themselves are not believed to be dangerous to those who listen.Sound experts and physicians say they know of no sound that can cause physical damage when played for short durations at normal levels through standard equipment like a cellphone or computer.What device produced the original sound remains unknown.Americans affected in Havana reported the sounds hit them at extreme volumes.
OAK RIDGE, Tenn., Oct. 12, 2017 - Ohio-based Strangpresse has exclusively licensed additive manufacturing-related extruder technology from the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory that can quickly print hundreds of pounds of polymer material.The ORNL inventions include an innovative nozzle that extrudes material to print large parts, such as tooling for aerospace and automotive applications and for prototyping, while achieving fine geometric resolution, and the ability to drastically improve quality and minimize roughness that can occur where the material starts and stops during the printing process."Development of the extruder technology increases high resolution deposition rates by three orders of magnitude, going from about four cubic inches per hour up to 2,400 cubic inches per hour," said Bill Peter, director of DOE's Manufacturing Demonstration Facility at ORNL."High-quality seams and fine resolution help minimize the need for post processing," Brian Post, ORNL co-inventor and project leader, said.Strangpresse, a Hapco Inc. affiliate founded in 2014, was formed to research, develop and commercialize fully controllable, lightweight thermoplastic extruders that are the cornerstone of 3D printing.They supply extruders and other equipment for research and development in additive manufacturing to industry leaders.
The world will follow,” asserted John Berger, CEO for Houston-based solar developer Sunnova Energy in a tweet before meeting in San Juan with Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosselló this week.Rosselló appears to be on board, inviting Elon Musk via tweet to use Puerto Rico as a “flagship project” to "show the world the power and scalability” of Tesla’s technologies, which include photovoltaic (PV) rooftops and Powerwall battery systems.Unfortunately I think the quickest way to do that is to go back to how things were before,” says Brad Rockwell, power supply manager for the Kaua i Island Utility Cooperative that operates one of the most renewable-heavy grids in the U.S.Now is a tough time for a debate, given the ongoing power and communications blackouts afflicting many Caribbean islands, including Puerto Rico, the U.S. and British Virgin Islands, Dominica, and St. Martin.As of Thursday 12 October—more than three weeks after Maria’s cyclonic wrecking ball crossed the region—over four-fifths of customers in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands remained without power, according to U.S. Department of Energy status reports.Puerto Rico lost major transmission lines that dispatched electricity generated at oil, coal, and natural gas-fired power plants on its lightly populated South shore to all corners of the territory.
Look, there are some things that will happen with this review that are outside of my control.Firstly, if you’ve ever seen an episode of Doctor Who, or if one has even aired somewhere in your vicinity, you’ll exclaim that this Bang & Olufsen speaker looks just like a Dalek.Most people can outfit their entire homes with Sonos speakers for less than this single chunk of B equipment costs.The BeoSound 2 is a hard sell as a regular 360-degree wireless speaker, because there are just so many competitive options out there.The primary method of connecting to it, though, is intended to be wireless: whether through Apple AirPlay, Google Cast, DLNA, Spotify Connect, or simple Bluetooth 4.1 pairing.Inside the thick aluminum shell reside four speakers: one tweeter, two for the mid-range, and one large woofer to provide low-end rumble.
The LG V30 is now making its way into the US, after being announced over a month ago.One carrier, T-Mobile, is already offering a nice BOGO offer for LG’s latest impressive flagship phone.If you buy the V30, you can get $500 off a second V30, via a mail-in rebate.Here’s how it will work.You buy both of the LG V30 phones up front from T-Mobile on its Equipment Installment Plan, with each phone selling for $80 down and $30 a month.Then you register the purchase of both phones at T-Mobile’s promotional site.
It looks to be retrieved from a computer game or a science fiction movie, but stridsdräkten Ratnik-3 shall begin to be used by the Russian armed forces in the year 2022, according to Newsweek.the Suit is crammed with life-support technology and advanced communication equipment, but the large dragplåstret is a watch to display the time during the height of the nuclear war – even if we suspect that you have other priorities than to keep the time in such a location.Russia is not alone to develop advanced battlesuits, the united states and France are way ahead.Many variants, including Ratnik-3, has a built in exoskeleton to give the wearer increased strength and endurance.How useful stridsdräkterna really is in practice remains to be seen – it is, of course, a propaganda war where the major powers want to give the impression of being far ahead in technology.
You're likely to know about the alleged “sonic attacks” on US diplomats in Cuba that resulted in hearing loss, tinnitus, headaches and dizziness.Now, you can experience it yourself, after the Associated Press (AP) released what it claims is a recording of the sound.Reports state that 22 US personnel, along with some Canadian government staff and their families, were repeatedly attacked by “an advanced sonic weapon” while stationed in Havana over the past several months.The State Department took the incidents so seriously that it issued a formal travel warning, pulled more than half its diplomatic staff from the island, and said it would not issue visas in Cuba until further notice.The AP obtained a recording of the sound, which isn't believed to be dangerous to those who listen.“Sound experts and physicians say they know of no sound that can cause physical damage when played for short durations at normal levels through standard equipment like a cellphone or computer,” writes the publication.
For the latest director’s chair series, in which The Drum interviews directors on influences, passions and career highlights, Klaus Obermeyer discusses how Katharine Hepburn influenced his career and how important great stories are, including his own about his funniest moment on set.Who or what inspired you to be a director?I would say that it was my calling from a very young age.She was very hard to deal with in some ways, she was definitely not easy to impress, and she had zero tolerance for mediocrity or laziness.One day his wife threw all of his film equipment into the swamp along with his saxophones and he ended up knocking on my door an hour later undeterred, nothing was going to delay progress on his film.His world was literally turned upside down and thrown into a swamp and his focus never flinched, that unwavering commitment is what makes a real filmmaker.
The rise and fall of Cyanogen Inc are well documented, but what happened in the ten months since the company pulled the plug on its main product?Surprisingly, Cyanogen is still around.It’s just not working on anything related to Android anymore.Now known as Cyngn, the company has pivoted to developing “innovative solutions for autonomous machines and vehicles.”Cyngn has recently obtained permits to test autonomous vehicles in California, though, unlike many other companies, the startup isn’t working on self-driving technology.Cyngn is actually trying to build autonomous excavators, loaders, and other construction equipment, an internal document consulted by Recode shows.
garymortimer shares a report from sUAS News: DJI, the world's leader in civilian drones and aerial imaging technology, has unveiled AeroScope, its new solution to identify and monitor airborne drones with existing technology that can address safety, security and privacy concerns.AeroScope uses the existing communications link between a drone and its remote controller to broadcast identification information such as a registration or serial number, as well as basic telemetry, including location, altitude, speed and direction.Police, security agencies, aviation authorities and other authorized parties can use an AeroScope receiver to monitor, analyze and act on that information.AeroScope has been installed at two international airports since April, and is continuing to test and evaluate its performance in other operational environments.AeroScope works with all current models of DJI drones, which analysts estimate comprise over two-thirds of the global civilian drone market.Since AeroScope transmits on a DJI drone's existing communications link, it does not require new on-board equipment or modifications, or require extra steps or costs to be incurred by drone operators.
Late last month, a stratovolcano in Bali named Mount Agung began to smoke.Officials have since evacuated thousands of people to prevent what happened when Agung erupted in 1963, killing more than 1,000 people.Plumes of water vapor rise from the crater.Using remote sensing to detect rising carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide emissions without endangering people or equipment would greatly increase human understanding of volcanoes.Researchers including Michigan Technological University volcanologist Simon Carn have published a collection of papers including "Spaceborne detection of localized carbon dioxide sources" in the journal Science; the article details the first-known measurement of localized anthropogenic and natural carbon dioxide sources from a satellite in low-Earth orbit.The five papers in the OCO-2 Science Special Collection showcase the abilities of NASA's Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2) satellite; measurements from the satellite's sensors provide insights into how carbon links everything on Earth.
Waymo launched a campaign earlier this week alongside partners, including the National Safety Council, to help explain why it believes that its pursuit of autonomous driving is a means to safer roads.Now it’s releasing its first-ever Safety Report, which offers more detail on the procedures and technology it uses to ensure safety in deploying its autonomous fleet.The 42-page document includes a summary overview of how Waymo’s cars function at a basic level, including under what conditions they work (and are designed to work exclusively) and how they “fail” back to a safe stop as a final fallback.It also explains what happens after a crash, should there be one, and what kind of data is recorded, as well as what measures are taken in terms of cybersecurity on the Waymo vehicles.Waymo also details both its hardware and software testing processes, including crash avoidance and the overall durability of its sensors and other equipment.Finally, it spells out how a rider experiences driving in its cars, and how the technology works in the case of interacting with emergency vehicles, law enforcement and other first responders.
The Riva Arena is a great-sounding alternative to Sonos for Android users who want to roll their own multi-room speaker setup.iOS users have little reason to get the Riva over the comparable Sonos, however, since AirPlay currently doesn’t support multi-room audio.However, for those who don’t like how Sonos speakers sound or simply don’t want to buy into the Sonos ecosystem, there hasn't always been a ton of stellar alternatives.Samsung and LG have their own multi-room speakers, sure, but they can be quite expensive and some don’t sound particularly great.For those who want the convenience of a multi-room setup, the $249 (£225, AU$369) Riva Arena is an excellent Google Cast-enabled alternative to the Sonos Play:1.The RIVA Arena looks strikingly similar to the Sonos Play:1 with its rectangular shape that will blend in well with the rest of your audio equipment.
About 5,300 years ago, he was shot with an arrow, struck in the head and left to die near a mountain pass high in the Alps.He was entombed in a glacier until 1991, when hikers near the Italian-Austrian border discovered his body.Ötzi is the oldest mummy in Europe, and scientists have studied nearly every possible aspect of his life and death, from his tattoos and tools to his diet and DNA.Among the equipment Ötzi carried was an ax of almost pure copper, remarkable because its wooden handle and leather straps were still preserved.[Mummy Melodrama: 9 Secrets About Otzi the Iceman]This past summer, researchers traced the source of the metal in Ötzi’s ax to southern Tuscany, which came as a surprise to them.
The first question will be answered in an upcoming This is my next feature, the second is daft, and the third forms the subject of this article.The obvious thing to say here is that there’s no right or wrong answer, there aren’t distinct categories of “proper” or “good” music, on the one hand, and unworthy junk, on the other.The equipment I usually use is a Schiit Jotunheim (a combination amplifier and DAC) when I’m at my desktop and a DragonFly Red or Astell & Kern Kann when I’m on the move.Multilayered productions from the likes of deadmau5 and Squarepusher might not be everyone’s cup of lemongrass tea, but there’s no denying their ability to stretch a pair of headphones.This is the newest must-listen track in my collection and the reason for that is simple and obvious, arriving at 21 seconds into the song.The recurrence of that bass hit is what makes me love the song, and I guess the confession I have to make is that I don’t test with some clinical set of tunes that don’t thrill me.
Physicists from Tomsk Polytechnic University are currently working to create hydrogen-resistant products out of titanium alloys based on additive manufacturing.The production of metal products using the technology ensures less material consumption as well as possibilities to develop complex geometric products.The Russian Science Foundation has recently supported TPU project Development of scientific foundations for the creation of hydrogen-resistant products from titanium alloys Ti-6Al-4V, Ti-6.5Al-3.5Mo-1.5Zr-0.3Si with a gradient structure of the near-surface layer manufactured by the additive manufacturing technology with a grant allocated for three years.Today, these parts are produced with traditional foundry though.In the framework of the RSF grant, TPU physicists are committed to show advantages of titanium parts produced by using advanced additive technology.To introduce it, special 3D-printing equipment and powder production installation should be developed.
The specs for the new iPhone 8 Plus' camera sound enticing — it's one of the most highly touted improvements on the phone.But when I was given the chance to compare the new iPhone's camera to the $9,000 Hasselblad X1D digital medium-format camera, I couldn't say no.While drawing a comparison between a Hasselblad camera that produces 51-megapixel image files and an iPhone that produces 12-megapixel image files might not be totally fair (internally, they rely on different technology to capture a photo), I wanted to see how this incredibly expensive equipment held up when it came to taking everyday, tourist-type photographs.I wanted to answer the question: when it comes to photographing your next vacation, is it worth investing in one of the best new cameras on the market, or should you stick with your iPhone?I went to photograph Chinatown — one of my favorite New York City neighborhoods because of its vibrant colors and always-busy streets — to find out.
