The Advantage Of Utilizing Laser Scanning Equipment In A Manufacturing Operation

Laser scanning is a technique used to create a 3d model of the object being scanned. By utilizing a focused, in-phase laser beam a much more accurate representation can be made of the object than if ordinary physical measurement tools were used. Another big advantage to laser scanning is speed. Laser scanning is actually faster than scanning using mechanical means. After all, the amount of moving parts is minimized and, since the laser scanning equipment never contacts the object being scanned physically it reduced the overall amount of movement needed for the scanning job to complete. Laser scanning is used in a variety of different manufacturing and engineering related functions. One of the most prominent ones is reverse engineering. When needing to obtain the proper measurements for manufacture of a part for whom neither CAD nor blueprint data is available, laser scanning is used. The laser scanning equipment is able to accurately generate a very precise informational 3D representation of the part being scanned which allows the manufacturing team to reproduce the object. While physical measurement may be able to match the scanning precision needed in such cases the speed tradeoff is undesirable. After all, laser scanning results in the most precise measurement in the smallest amount of time. Another use of laser scanning is on a high speed assembly line. In a manufacturing environment in which a large amount of parts need to be scanned to check for accurate manufacture, laser scanning is the most attractive method of determining if the manufactured parts meet a predetermined specification. This allows for a much higher quality control in the manufacturing...

The Design And Operation Of Septic Tanks

Septic Tanks are one of the most important parts of waste water treatment. They are among most common components in the entire world with regards sewage treatment. For almost all homes that are not located in highly populated cities with public sewers, septic tanks are the primary way private waste water is disposed of. In many rural areas of the country septic tanks is the norm. They have replaced older and less efficient means of waste disposal. One older method of waste water disposal was the use of a cesspool. A cesspool is a large hole lined with rock in most cases. The sewage would be deposited into the pit and slowly leach out. The problem with this method was that there was no way to breakdown the sewage. The sewage simply exited the cesspit and left behind solid residue. The solid reside did not break down and therefore the cesspit became clogged and would need to be tended to. These devices were unhealthy, costly, and dangerous. Modern septic tanks have taken the idea of the cesspool and greatly improved upon it. For starters they incorporate what is called a leach field. A leach field is an area, sometimes very large, sometimes small, where the effluent will exit the septic. This water then travels through a material of crushed stone or other similar material. This further cleans the water. The size of the leach field depends upon how much waste water is going to be considered. A leach field is something that is not noticeable. All the action is underground. It looks like a normal lawn. But in reality,...

Network Ten Indian Market Operation Rules – Screen Printing Market, Screen Printing Business –

First, Vista rules Any screen printing business, no matter the scale of how, in the industry at what position, there should be a viable long-term goal planning, and in accordance with the long-term planning to start marketing activities, while not completely fall into the blind pursuit of Among the immediate interests of the quagmire. Our screen printing business, through repeated integration, still many. Many enterprises are facing risks and opportunities, and even more risks than opportunities. Survival as the first issue, was placed in front of many screen printing companies. Therefore, many screen printing business operators that priority is survival, first fill the stomach, and then select the direction. As a result, price wars come and go, blindly follow the trend of new product development. Survival is, the problem is that you can digest? It also harm than good? If the answer is negative, then the company’s situation is very dangerous. No long-term plan, even if it through today, tomorrow they will be faced with the problem of food and clothing, energy consumption will be looking to swallow food or even those that are not nutritious and difficult to digest things, so that competitors may soon be left behind . The long-term goals of screen printing business, every step forward and step in to successfully close. Survival and establish long-term goal planning are not contradictory. On the contrary, a good long-term planning also help us to better survival. Second, abandoning rules Screen printing market in China in recent years the status quo, screen printing business to know how to give up, learn to give up. Most screen printing companies...

Evaluating the Real Cost of Operation

A manufacturing facility, petrochemical plant, power generation utility or any other industrial facility may contain many diverse unit operations and involve diverse resources such as raw materials, fuel sources, electrical supply, machinery and human resources. Given the complex nature of these facilities it can be difficult to understand all the costs involved in the production process and where these costs originate. However a detailed understanding of the individual production costs and how they contribute to the total operational cost is the key to making effective decisions in the day to day running of a facility. In order to fully understand all the costs involved in the operation of a facility it is necessary to have a good level of familiarity with all the unit operations and understand all the costs involved in each operation. In the process of putting together a comprehensive cost model for the facility the procedure is as follows: 1. List the unit operations involved in the operation of the facility. 2. For each unit operation identify all the cost inputs. 3. For each cost input identify the critical process indicators (KPIs) from which these cost inputs can be calculated on a daily basis. 4. Identify the on-going maintenance cost on a daily basis: including repair, replacement and manpower costs. 5. Identify all human costs in operating the facility including management, operational control and manual labour. The simple process of going through this procedure of identifying the daily operating cost of operating a facility and understanding where these costs are coming from can provide important insights into how operational costs can be reduced. This analysis can...

Review of Operation Emu by B. Brandon Barker

Third-rate Hollywood actors and top NASA astronauts come together in this quirky, hilarious romp of a novel. Somewhere in the depths of NASA, a team of scientists begin to conduct a top secret operation called OPERATION EMU… Soon afterward, a Hollywood producer puts together a team of actors for a mysterious, low-budget movie… Some time later, after an intense training period, NASA sends three astronauts to space on a special mission to visit a nearby planet believed to have intelligent life. The astronauts are sedated for the whole duration of the long trip. When they wake, they realize they have landed on said planet. However, a huge surprise awaits, for this planet is inhabited by primitive cave people who roam around practically naked and who are friendly and naive. Untouched by technology, they live simply and happily, without such worries as politics or feminism. Indeed, the men hunt, and the women cook and take care of their home’s bare necessities. Their religion consists of worshiping animal gods. The story goes on to show the behavior of the three astronauts toward the aliens. Are the astronauts compassionate and protective, or does their dominating, imperialistic nature as ‘superior’ humans take control? How are their actions and interactions in this new, prehistoric environment where they suddenly have the capacity to become kings and even ‘gods’ to these weaker living beings? Operation Emu is a thought-provoking satire, one that will make you wonder about Hollywood, science, and the US Space Program. The novel will also make you wonder about human nature and the advantages of technology, as well as our capacity to dominate....
