Cincinnati Inc. Demos 3D-Printed Press-Brake Tooling At 2018 FABTECH

Published by:

Harrison, Ohio company, Cincinnati Inc., will be showcasing something new at this year’s iteration of FABTECH, held at Atlanta, Georgia, on the 6th to the 8th of November.

The company will be showing off a new productive link between metal fabrication and additive manufacturing, using 3D printing technology for a new pressbrake upgrade, which they will display at their booth. CI will be showing a trio of 3D printed press brake process enhancements at their booth, B5543, in the FABTECH Additive Pavilion.

The three 3D printed pressbrake upgrade enhancement cover upper and lower air-bend tooling, back gauge fingers, and new inspection gauges.

The plastic used for the 3D printed tools is polylactic acid, a thermoplastic polymer that’s made from renewable resources, such as corn starch and/or sugar cane, classified as a biodegradable bioplastic. The milk-based plastic used to print these parts offer benefits, more than in production and manufacturing thanks to their renewable nature.

The manufacturing industry has tested 3D printed tools, discovering the products of the process to be great for specialized and short production job; the technology is ideal for prototype fabricators working 12-gauge or thinner materials, as well as those that make smaller specialty machine parts. 3D printed tools also allow suppliers to bypass the engineering and production tasks, as well as their associated costs, which have a tendency to getting such production runs and jobs from proceeding in a timely manner.

According to CI Senior Product Specialist of Vertical Motion Products, Mark Watson, the company has been working closely with additive and press-brake tooling ever since 2014, with the objective of improving the efficacy of forming with 3D-printed pieces. He says that they have long heard thatit’s impossible to find the link that connects the additive to the fabrication process, which is why they’ve visited Atlanta with the aim of proving otherwise.

Watson added that 3D printed technology is very much a design tool, one that opens a lot possibility for the industry at large. He says that customers will also be able to reap the benefits from this new technology, and he hopes that this demo will be something akin to a ‘light-bulb moment’.

How To Keep Millennials Coming To Some Football Stadiums

Published by:

The younger generation may leave the football stadiums if they can’t stay connected with football games. Hence, sports teams are now improving their fan experience by embracing technology. Just picture yourself walking down the stadium, and using your smartphone to buy a premium seat upgrade or order a pork sandwich and imported beer delivered right at your seat. You then want to capture your favorite player’s touchdown score, and use it to watch instant replays at variable angles. The app also shows you the direction to the nearest restroom without waiting in line.

These aren’t futuristic football stadiums experiences. You can find one in few venues, and there are other people rushing to add the millennial digital systems that anyone can attend the game and have an immersive, connected experience.

Connecting the Race

Three reasons are why stadiums are forcing to encourageconnectivity:

  • Modifying demographics
  • Attracting fans to come to the stadiums rather than spending it on a home TV
  • Promoting more revenues

Whether you’re starting from scratch or trying to fit current facilities, football stadiums have a powerful competition with each other just to have the most recent technologies.

Competing with the Big Screen TV

Teams accept the reality that watching the big game in a fan’s family room is cheaper and easier. So, teams need to make the football games appear more appealing so the fans will choose to watch the games live at the stadium. A recent study shows that around 57% of fans like to watch the game at home.

Many say that it will feel more comfortable and convenient to watch the event or competition at home, especially with your own big TV and bathroom.  But thankfully, technology has provided the addition of connectivity and apps to make the fan experience done at the stadium, rather than watching at home.

With the use of Wi-Fi, the fan can experience watching at the football stadiums, that haven’t been tried elsewhere. And the best thing about it is bragging their friends on social media to watch the real thing. This can really be great as everyone gets to see the football game live.

Thai Culture Caravan Travels Across Europe

Published by:

The Thai cultural caravan travelled across Europe earlier in 2018, from May to June, showcasing Thai culture. The caravan, with a mission dubbed “Thailand at the forefront” is part of the country’s efforts to promote its culture in foreign countries via cultural artifacts like embroidery in Thailand, and performances like the masked art of the traditional Thai dance, the khon.

The caravan received full backing from the royal family of Thailand itself, wherein it began its journey to promote Thailand’s culture on a global scale. The roadshow held performances in key venues like the Circulo de Bellas Artes in Spain. Thailand’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs have been running “Thailand at the forefront” since 2015, ever since its official inauguration at the Royal Albert Hall in London as a marker for the 60th birthday of Royal Princess Sirindhorn.

Deputy Director-General of the Department of Information at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ruyaporn Sukontasap, says that their office worked closely with the Ministry of Culture for years in order to prepare the show, which included booking the venue in each country where the performances were held. The Ministry, he says, holds the venue selection process in high regard in order to set a good impression for Thailand abroad.

The performers, due to the limited number of staff for the caravan, were all forced to perform for multiple shows, which was a tough calling, due to the fact that all performances, while carried out in different circumstances, all had to adhere to a high start from the start of the caravan to its conclusion.

Every show starts out with the traditional khon, a masked dance based on the Ramayana epic. The dance details the beginnings of Thotsakan and Rama, their battle and Rama’s subsequent victory. This is then succeeded by Thailand’s regional and combat dances.

As part of the efforts to promote Thai culture, the cloth, previously made in India, was ordered by the Queen to be made by Thais themselves, to showcase textile making and embroidery in Thailand, a notable imperative given that the traditional Thai style needed demanded skills so rare that they’ve almost gone extinct.

Promate Boonyachod, of the Queen’s foundation, said that this decision was also helpful to the poor and young of Thailand, who have been trained in traditional Thai art not only for the country’s heritage, but also as a means for them to make a living.

There were also other cultural promotion activities in Europe, which include a musical-exchange student exchange programme between Thailand’s Mahidol University and the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna, with others to follow.

How Patrick Mahony Does His Job As A Psychoanalyst

Published by:

When people consider psychoanalysis, they imagine Freud smoking a cigar and rubbing his moustache. However, such image has created an impression that such technique has been initiated from the past. Psychoanalysis may have certainly created an image problem. But with today’s modern technology, psychoanalysis has become an updated therapy where the psychoanalyst like Patrick Mahony awaits patients and give them more time to be comfortable, relaxed and trust him with their personal information.

As psychoanalysis is a form of psychological treatment, it has been proven useful for people suffering with longstanding difficulties on how they feel and think about themselves, the environment and their relationships with other people. The process can involve short term treatments that can last a week for anxiety and depression that has brought about stress, loss and trauma. But for major psychological problems they may take more time like weeks, months or years to undergo the psychoanalysis.

The process had first been developed to treat patients that don’t respond to other medical or psychological techniques available. Freud has indeed made a change in the process for a number of reasons, which brings back the unconscious past of the patient and relates it to what he or she is today. Many psychoanalysts like Patrick Mahony has found out how the unconscious factors have greatly influenced the present including the illness. Therefore, he can implement or impose diagnosis and suggestions on how one can overcome the illness, make him better and move on with better lives.

If you need to consult with a psychoanalyst like Patrick Mahony, you need to arrange an appointment and meet up with him in his office. He has undergone psychoanalytic training and some doctoral studies to make his therapies specialized and more dedicated to the needs of his patients. When it’s the first time to meet up with him, his therapy sessions may be done few times a week until the patient learns to trust him. If his expert advice can have immediate effects on the patient, then he may suggest fewer visits until they can manage and stand on their own. However, his services are only offered for Canadian and British clients.

 

The Portland Loo Opened Today At Downtown Miami

Published by:

Miami recently revealed its very first permanent public bathroom today. For those who want to find relief in their own homes, this website has a variety of bathroom and shower tiles, but for those who unfortunately find themselves in the same situation in downtown Miami, “The Portland Loo” may just be a lifesaver.

 

The Facility

The Portland Loo will be open from 8:30 in the morning until 8:30 in the evening at 101 W. Flagler St. It just near the Metrorail station, which is just a short walk from the Miami-Dade Main Public Library. The facility looks like a booth, with its own sink, toilet, and safe needle area. It also has its own attendant. The local government mentioned on Twitter the loo is a basic and important amenity that would be available for all pedestrians in the city. This would be a great amenity for commuters, travellers, and the homeless.

 

Origin

The design was based after the public stand-alone bathroom in Portland, Oregon, which was developed in partnership with Madden Fabrication. Homeowners can have easy access various options to personalize their bathrooms like this website, but for the homeless, Portland’s bathroom is a good way to access their basic needs in the area. The bathroom was a response to the rising population of homeless individuals in Portland, and to avoid local businesses from being disturbed when they need to go to the loo. The United States and Canada are home to more than 20 loos.

 

Bathrooms are often overlooked and sometimes even forgotten, until one needs it. These public facilities provide relief and a safe place for everyone to relieve himself or herself wherever they are.

 

Opening Ceremony

The city’s mayor Francis Suarez attended its official opening today for ribbon cutting, together with Ken Russel, commissioner for Miami, and commissioner Eileen Higgins from Miami-Dade. The mayor says that the facility shows the city’s efforts in providing basic services that would be accessible to everyone in the area.

 

The courthouse, the Government Centre, the public library, as well as Miami Dade College also have restrooms open for the public, together with the recently opened public bathroom. Some commercial establishments may also allow the use of their bathrooms.
