Hamish Bidwell: Black Ferns sevens now rival All Blacks as NZ’s leading rugby side

Go many places and people will know the name, the kit, the pedigree. When great sporting dynasties and brands are discussed, the All Blacks are rightly in the conversation. They’ve won, and won well, for so long and in so many different circumstances that they’ll forever be a byword for excellence. The irony being, though, that they now face increasing competition to call themselves New Zealand’s finest rugby side.

The 2018 edition is held in Auckland next week, where the Black Ferns’ Sevens side must be certainties to take the team of the year crown. In both seasons the All Blacks were very good. This year they lost just two games, while in 2017 it was two defeats and a draw. Given the calibre of their opposition, the All Blacks can feel pretty satisfied with what they did. They still battle to win tight games, in which...

An Ohio factory closure stirs populist anger. Who will that help in 2020?

LORDSTOWN, Ohio — They stood outside in the dark, illuminated by barrel fires and the headlights of trucks lurching by, and they were angry. The Chevrolet Cruze plant behind them had been idle for six months and shed thousands of jobs. They were the laid-off, reassigned, and retired factory workers who had spent decades inside, fitting headlights and slipping windows into doors as compact sedans took shape on the assembly line. Some of the plant’s former employees had stayed here in Northeast Ohio, perhaps without a job or with a worse-paying one, while many of their neighbors moved away. They scattered, taking new assignments from Missouri to Michigan, leaving their families behind. Now, in mid-September, they were back. General Motors workers had just walked off the job around the country, striking in protest of tiered wages, eroded job security, and a prosperous company they felt was not sharing enough of its profits with employees who had made sacrifices to help keep it afloat during leaner times. Here in Lordstown, there were virtually no jobs left to walk away from. But the auto workers, past and present, came anyway, bringing the strike to the doorstep of a ghost plant in...

Consumables Corner: The relationship between ferrite numbers and cracking 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 Espa

Q: We recently started doing work that requires some components to be manufactured from mostly 304-grade stainless steel, which is welded to itself and to mild steel. We’ve experienced some cracking issues on the stainless-to-stainless welded sections that are up to 1.25 inches thick. It was mentioned that our ferrite numbers are low. Can you explain what this is and how to correct the issue? A: That’s a great question. And yes, we can help you understand what it means to have low ferrite numbers and how to prevent it. First, let’s review what defines a stainless steel (SS) and then how ferrite relates to the welded joints. Ferrous steels and alloys contain more than 50 percent iron. This includes all carbon and stainless steels as well as other defined groups. Aluminum, copper, and titanium don’t contain iron, so they are great examples of nonferrous alloys. The primary constituent of the alloy is iron content of at least 90 percent for carbon steel and 70 to 80 percent for SS. To be classified as a SS, it must have a minimum of 11.5 percent chromium added to it. Chrome content higher than this minimum threshold promotes the formation of a chrome-oxide film on...

Hydraulic Options for High-Force Pressing | 2019-05-06

Some assembly technologies evolve too fast or too slow, while others change at a pace that’s just right. Hydraulic presses belong in the latter category, according to some suppliers, and that’s a good thing. “The biggest area of growth for hydraulic press technology lies in the controls system,” notes Josh Dixon, director of sales and marketing at Beckwood Press Co. “Automotive, aerospace and medical manufacturers want and need advancements in operator control, press-data acquisition, process monitoring, quality control and maintenance scheduling. These benefits nicely complement the hydraulic press’s ability to generate high force over a small area and equally throughout the stroke.” All of these capabilities are important to companies with hydraulic pressing applications, especially those that require 10 tons or more of force. Beckwood has been engineering hydraulic and other presses since 1976, including machines that exceed 5,000 tons of force. One regular user of a high-force Beckwood press is Fike Corp., a global supplier of fire protection, pressure relief, over-pressure protection and pressure activation devices. Fike currently runs five Beckwood machines, including a 2,...

Spread-tow carbon fabrics reduce mass in America’s Cup catamaran : CompositesWorld

Source: Oracle TeXtreme also offered a cosmetic surface finish on the laminates, which was important because many surfaces on the boat were unpainted to save weight. Source: Oracle The America’s Cup race has always been a showpiece of lightweight composite solutions, but in this year’s 34th campaign, the financial climate has made cost-effective solutions a must. To meet both weight and cost goals, cup defenders ORACLE TEAM USA, owned by Larry Ellison, CEO of Oracle, turned to Oxeon (Borås, Sweden) trademarked TeXtreme Spread Tow carbon reinforcements, in both dry and prepregged forms. The result was a substantial weight savings on the team’s AC72 racing catamaran. Dirk Kramers, head of structures at ORACLE TEAM USA, reports that the team wanted to qualify new materials at the start of th...

Chiller Sets New Benchmarks For Energy Efficiency, Tight Control : Plastics Technology

A new line of small portable chillers is crammed with standard features usually seen only on central models and often as expensive options. Here are more details on what is heralded as “the most efficient industrial process chiller on the market,” first discussed briefly in last month’s Keeping Up section. Jochen Naujokat, president of Delta T Systems, Richfield, Wis., and Rick Holzhauer, the firm’s chief mechanical engineer, previewed this development exclusively for Plastics Technology. These units are loaded with features that are either “firsts” in the field of process chilling, or are still quite rare for smaller chillers, or are standard capabilities that are usually expensive options. To be launched in July, the new line will start with small portable chillers of 1 to 15 tons, with larger portable models up to 30 tons and central models to follow thereafter. Initial models will be air cooled, though water-cooled units will not be far behind. SAVING ENERGY, BIG TIME Perhaps the most important innovation in these new chillers is variable-speed compressor technology, which has been used for 20 years in the HVAC industry but rarely before in process chilling. (The only other...
