Are tire manufacturers wasting millions every year?

In tire manufacturing, the shopfloor logistics necessary to get the right material, the right tire building machine, at the right time, are complex. This process is costing most tire manufacturing plants millions of euros annually. According to Identec, the four biggest issues are: • expired raw material; • time lost searching for the right material carriers; • productivity loss by inserting the wrong material carriers into the machines; and • lost productivity due to scanning and electronic booking issues. Expired raw materialMixed raw material has a limited shelf-life and almost all tire manufacturers are wasting some percentage of expensive material due to the expiration date being exceeded. The challenge is getting the required material to the right tire building machine before it expires. That may sound rather easy. However, considering that even a relatively small tire manufacturing plant can have thousands of material carriers in use, it becomes clear why just about every plant is battling the issue of expired raw material. An average size plant easily loses €150,000 annually due to this issue. Searching for material carriersRaw materials are transported to tire building...

7 Teething Necklaces to Treat Your Baby’s Gums Right

Teething is a challenge that all parents must weather sooner or later. Everything seems to be progressing smoothly until those first teeth begin to make their appearance around six months. While there are myriad options for helping soothe a child’s teething, there’s one thing that most people agree on: giving your child something to chew on while they endure the eruption of their pearly whites. Enter the teething necklace — a wearable piece of jewelry made specifically to be gnawed on by babies. Teething necklaces are trendy at the moment, and if that’s the road you’d like to travel down there are a few things to keep in mind. Experts recommend that you avoid teething necklaces worn by the child, especially the amber bead ones that are popular right now. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, they can lead to strangulation and choking. The best option is a teething necklace mom worn by mom or dad. The material should be contaminant free — no BPA’s phthalates, lead, or cadmium. If made from silicone, which many are, it should be medical or food grade to ensure no unwanted contaminants make their way into your child’s mouth. Wood beads are great as long as they are only ...

Formed tungsten and molybdenum crucibles perform extremely well in Heat Exchanger Method (HEM) process and are

Formed tungsten and molybdenum crucibles perform extremely well in Heat Exchanger Method (HEM) process and are suitable for melting and solidifying of single crystals. Formed crucibles from PLANSEE have thin walls and exhibit superior creep resistance. Pressed-sintered crucibles from PLANSEE are mainly used in the Kyropolous process for the production of sapphire. When sapphire is easily extracted, better yield and improved quality of sapphire can be realized. PLANSEE’s tungsten and molybdenum-based crucibles are heat-resistant and feature a smooth surface, which make them durable and cost-effective. They are also resistant to corrosion and have a high material density. PLANSEE’s pressed-sintered crucibles are made from tungsten or molybdenum and have a surface roughness of below 0.8 µm. when the crucible’s surface is rough, the sapphire cannot be easily extracted and this tends to damage the crystal. Besides, the crucible also gets damaged in the process. The ultra-smooth crucibles from PLANSEE eliminate these issues. Sapphire manufacturers can benefit from this product as it eliminates complex and costly processes. In addition, the smooth surface is resistant to corrosion ind...

No substitute for Jesus, our substitute in atonement | Ledger Independent

“What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?” Matthew 16:26 Life is a balancing act of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and all other social interactions. The balancing works comes into play when we align our social activity, our estimated value in a group, and our belonging to a “tribe” in relation to our devotion and submission to a deep personal relationship with Jesus Christ. All people will fall somewhere on a spectrum of extroverted or introverted; meaning extroverts are energized by people, and introverts are energized by being alone. Wherever we fall on the spectrum, God instructs us all to aim for peace and unity and maintain love, all while seeking the highest truth and fulfilling our individual purpose. Finding where we gain energy is important because we can see our makeup for community. Our need for interactions should always be in this perspective — all relationships flow from a heart set on God in order to love others better. No amount of friends or family members can fill the yearning we have for Christ. More importantly, no friend or family member can forge a relat...
