Pittsburgh — Pet All Manufacturing Inc. is opening a showroom in Minnesota to display its big accumulator-head machines, a company official said at the Society of Plastics Engineers’ Annual Blow Molding Conference, in one of two presentations on giant blow molders. Andrew Hobson, USA technical manager for Pet All, said the company will use 10,000 square feet of space at custom extruder Nelson Plastics Inc. in Paynesville, Minn., near St. Cloud. The showroom will open in late November. The showroom will house an accumulator-head machine that makes three-layer, 1,000-liter tanks (264 gallons), with a 74-pound shot. Hobson said it’s important to show customers how the big machine works. Pet All’s Jumbo series of accumulator-head machines can have head sizes that can run up to 1,540-pound shots. The head tooling is huge, measuring up to 70 inches in diameter. Hobson’s presentation addressed how the Jumbo machine compares to rotational molding, the most common way to make very large hollow tanks and other vessels. Faster cycle time is the obvious advantage of blow molding over rotomolding. Hobson also said blow molding gives the ability to make multilayer par...

Canadian job shops share similar problems with their large counterparts, including finding skilled labour, staying current

Canadian job shops share similar problems with their large counterparts, including finding skilled labour, staying current with their manufacturing technology, and seeking out new business opportunities. Job shops that focus on custom work share many issues with large manufacturers, including the need to stay current and competitive and to take advantage of new opportunities. Some topics, however, that are front-and-centre for big plants that do huge runs, such as tariffs, material costs, and certain technologies, don’t loom as large in the job shop sector. The main concern for all companies, both large and small, is the lack of new skilled workers entering the sector. “Finding enough qualified, skilled machinists is by far our greatest challenge. The shortage of skilled machinists is hampering the growth of the machining part of our businesses,” said Sean MacPhee, president of Velocity Machining & Welding in Dartmouth and Techtronics Machine Works in Musquodoboit Harbour, N.S. “We have talked to and attended meetings with various government agencies. Also, we are sponsoring the Skills Canada National Competition this year, which will give us direct exposure to the best up-a...

Sample Preparation Techniques for Lithium Batteries

Due to their high energy and power densities compared to conventional batteries, lithium ion batteries (LIB) have found a wide application ranging from hybrid/full electric vehicles (H/EV), power tools, and portable electronics amongst others.  The adoption of electric vehicle technology has been attributed to two main factors; first, their low impact on greenhouse gas emissions compared to traditional internal combustion engine primarily driven by low emission targets for ICU engines targeted at less that 95g/Km by 2021, (Miller, 2015) (Tsiropoulos I., 2018). Secondly, is the increasing demand for a better range from a single charge that is at least more than half the current range achievable with ICU engines. These factors have put more emphasis on cell chemistry and cell architecture, battery pack design, joining and manufacture. The selection of a particular type of lithium ion battery is thus dependent on the battery chemistry, which has a direct effect on its safety during use, its lifetime behavior, the charging/discharging time and the power or energy density. Battery packs consists of hundreds/thousands of individual cells assembled into packs, to provide the voltage a...

Wrongly fitted car seats putting children in danger

New research commissioned by Seat suggests that a large proportion of parents are not using a child seat correctly. A study of 1,000 UK parents of children aged 12 or under yielded some troubling revelations. As many as one in three said they’d transported someone else’s child without a child seat, while one in five said they let their child sit on a cushion rather than a booster seat. One in 10 said they’d had four or more children sat across one three-seat row. A third of parents admitted they’ve used a car seat designed for an older child, while one in five said they’d used an incorrectly installed child seat. Sometimes it’s not willful disregard of the rules, though. Many parents are not-so-blissfully ignorant of the regulations and dangers. Three-quarters of parents think the government should do more to make parents aware of car seat regulations. A fifth of parents are confident about the rules around kids and car seats, with 40 percent of parents worried they’ve not fitted a child seat properly. The law states that children under 12 or under 135cm tall, legally require some form of booster seat when travelling in a car, to prevent sliding under the adult belt in the event...

Ever since my granddaughter visited Disney World, she’s been asking when I was going to put

Ever since my granddaughter visited Disney World, she’s been asking when I was going to put “Fairy Lights”  in the trees around the house.  I’ve been able to deflect, usually with the promise of ice cream, but now I can answer her request using the Night Stars light.  Although my initial thoughts were “who needs this?”, after setting it up and showing my friends, I actually like it. The Night Stars Lighting is a laser projector that projects colored dots in a 25′ by 25′ area.  These can be used to enhance the visual appeal of your building or, as in my case, give the illusion of lights in trees and bushes. Because this is a laser, it is important that you take notice of the safety precautions for using the device.  The following is excerpted  from the instruction pamphlet. While the Class IIIa laser in this device may be hazardous on its own, it is encased in a protective housing and uses diffractive holographic optics, therefore the laser radiation is not directly exposed to during operation or maintenance. Each individual laser beam is less than 5mW, which is about the same as an average laser pointer. In practical terms, I’ve found that while the beams do not appear to be dan...
