Editor’s note: Welcome to So it happened, our editors’ views on events unfolding in the world of manufacturing deserve special attention. This will regularly appear in the members only section of the site.

Companies pledge to buy technology that helps people with disabilities

Intel and Merck are among 20 companies that joined the Provide access initiativesa program of Disability:IN that encourages businesses to buy and sell technologies and products and services that are accessible, usable and inclusive for people with disabilities.

Disability:IN has partnered with over four hundred companies to create long-term business and social impact through its disability inclusion benchmarking tool, the Disability Equality Index (DEI).

“More than 32 years after the Americans with Disabilities Act, there is still a lack of accessibility to technology and other products and services, which continues to create barriers for people with disabilities in employment and society,” Jeff Wissel, director of accessibility for Handicap:IN, said in a statement. “This is a critical step in creating an inclusive workforce, customer base and supply chain.”

The first 20 signatories and future members of the Procure Access initiative aim to identify barriers faced by technology buyers and sellers and to promote information sharing on accessibility gaps and roadmaps.

There are all kinds of ways to reduce costs and energy use in manufacturing, and Navistar Inc. uses many of them. Efforts by the truckmaker, now part of Volkswagen’s Traton Group since last year’s merger, include participation in demand response programs, utility discounts, scavenger hunts utilities and other Department of Energy programs. Several factories receive training on the ISO 50001 standard, a standard focused on energy management.

The focus on energy management, and in particular energy efficiency, is nothing new for the manufacturer, says Terri Sexton, head of environmental and energy affairs at Navistar, but it is expected to accelerate with the Traton merger and European perspectives on climate change. and the durability that comes with it. (Traton is based in Germany.) The EU has set a long-term climate-neutral vision and emissions targets. Additionally, earlier this year Navistar CEO Mathias Carlbaum said sustainability will be a priority at Navistar.

Sexton shared his insights at the Ohio Manufacturers Energy Conference, held earlier this month, with a talk focused on energy efficiency. She noted that historically, energy reliability rather than efficiency has been a focus of manufacturing operations. It’s a mindset that has been a barrier to greater efficiency gains, she suggested. The same goes for some who think that energy efficiency is expensive. Rising energy prices could change this perception.

Sexton’s advice: “Integrate energy efficiency into [operations]part of the product and quality and production.

And don’t forget the simple solutions. “Turn off your devices when you’re not at work. It’s common sense, but you’d be amazed at how much energy is used during production versus non-production. Sometimes it’s pretty much the same thing.

To learn more about Navistar’s Operational Excellence journey, attend the Manufacturing and Technology Show in Cleveland, October 18-20. Navistar Executive Vice President Mark Hernandez will detail how the company is using its new San Antonio plant as a test bed for many IIoT and Industry 4.0 technologies.

For my part, I welcome our Robotic Overlords

Are we finally ready for the robotic future imagined by Isaac Asimov and Philip K. Dick? Will we soon have C3P0-type protocol droids to assist us in daily life? A few companies are pushing in this direction.

Next week, Tesla plans to unveil the latest version of Optimus, its humanoid robot for assembly lines. And, based in Austin, Texas Apptronilk recently signed a deal with NASA to commercialize its experimental line of person-shaped machines.

Apptronik’s early models have the unique feature of making Boston Dynamics’ creepy robot dogs feel friendly in comparison. The Draco and Hume models are robots that only have legs (Wallace and Gromit fans, imagine the short film “The Wrong Trousers” for reference). Dreamer and Astra aren’t as bad, representing the human upper torso and head.

Valkyrie, which is part of a NASA research project, is their combined model of upper and lower human halves, and it is more realistic.

“The robots we’ve all dreamed of are now here and ready to release into the world,” said Jeff Cardenas, CEO and co-founder of Apptronik. “These robots will first become tools for us here on Earth and ultimately help us to go beyond and explore the stars.”

For anyone paying attention, yes, robots helping us explore the stars was the plot of a dystopian sci-fi classic. blade runner.

Tesla’s Optimus robot, unveiled as a concept about a year ago, represents years of effort to solve a long-standing automation problem in the auto industry. General Motors began using industrial robots, Unimate, in 1959, and robots now handle most welding, painting, and sealing operations in automotive factories. But people are much better suited for the final assembly of the vehicle – connecting wires and hoses, applying trim, installing seats, etc.

Unlike painting with its chemicals or body welding with its heat or stamping with its sharp edges, the final finish and assembly is human friendly. Robots excel at repetitive tasks, but the final assembly is highly variable, which keeps the human mind engaged.

It’s a lesson Tesla CEO Elon Musk learned the hard way when he launched his Model 3 electric vehicle.

Initially, Tesla tried to automate final finishing and assembly as much as possible, and the robots weren’t up to the task. Production fell significantly behind schedule and the company had to set up additional assembly lines under tents in its parking lots to handle the work. The operations required men, not machines.

Or maybe not? Optimus robots could work alongside people in these finishing and assembly areas, using their human forms to do what traditional industrial robots could not: reach into tight spaces, bend around small openings and manipulate a wider range of tools.

Will these new humanoid robots be practical, affordable or effective? Are we going to link them to computer systems? We could use the cloud and call the Skynet system. What could go wrong?

Insects on an industrial scale

Does industrial insect farming have its day in the sun? (Or would it be more likely in the shade?)

We’re not about to proclaim ourselves experts in this area of ​​food economics, but we couldn’t help but notice back-to-back funding announcements this week. First, Singapore-headquartered Nutrition Technologies said it raised $20 million from a group led by PTT Ventures and comprising six other companies, including Sumitomo Corp. Then Paris-based Innovafeed said it secured $250 million in backing from the Qatar Investment Authority and a handful of others, including agribusiness giant ADM and Cargill.

The Innovafeed team plans to use some of its new revenue – this was the company’s Series D – to build a 280-job factory in Decatur, Illinois, where it plans to start to produce 60,000 tonnes of protein per year in 2024. -the former company will produce black soldier fly protein for animal and plant use and, later, for human food.

The involvement of big names in these funding rounds (including Temasek, Singapore’s public investment company) makes it clear that this is not a flash in the plan or an unproven test. Nutrition Technologies executives say the market will be worth around $340 million this year, but will reach $1.3 billion by 2027. Add to that the fact that industrial insect production fuels many aspects of safety. food, clean energy and sustainability more broadly and it’s likely we’ll be seeing a lot more titles soon.

Royal Re-Do: Twining’s and others to change UK labels after Queen Elizabeth II’s death

In what I.W. Editor Robert Schoenberger called “probably the only manufacturing story reacting to the Queen’s death” that a variety of food and drink companies will have to change their labels after the death of Queen Elizabeth II in the early of the month.

Twining’s tea, Gordon’s gin and Heinz ketchup are among the companies displaying the British Royal Coat of Arms on their UK packaging. The coat of arms features a lion and a unicorn – symbols of England and Scotland, respectively – and the words ‘by appointment with Her Majesty’, and only companies that hold a Royal Warrant are permitted to display it on their UK packaging. These warrants expire on the change of monarch, according to the Royal Warrant Holder Association website, although companies can continue to use the label for two years before having to apply for one under the new king.

However, the change is unlikely to affect packaging as much in the US as it does overseas – where the British Heinz ketchup bottle depicts arms, the US version simply shows the company name and slogan “57 varieties”.

According to the RWHA, the tradition of royal charters for the British monarch’s favorite manufacturers dates back to around the 12th century, when Henry II granted one to the Weavers’ Company. Since then, the monarchy has traditionally issued warrants to companies allowing them to represent the arms in return for providing services or products to the royal household.

Rotolight recently launched a new light modifier for its AEOS 2 LED lamps: the SmartSoft Box. This electronic softbox is the world’s first smart digital diffuser, which means you can adjust the amount of diffusion you want with just the press of a button. Plus, with the latest Rotolight app for iOS and Android devices, you can control the light and the SmartSoft Box wirelessly. Zoom on this new innovative lighting diffuser!

A few months ago, Rotolight launched the NEO 3 and AEOS 2 compact RGBWW LED lamps. These compact and affordable luminaires have incredible light output, with a maximum output of 9230 lux at 1 m for the AEOS 2. a flash mode photo/high speed which gives you an extra stop of light output.

At IBC 2019, the British company introduced the Titan X2, which is still Rotolight’s flagship LED light. When I first saw the Titan X2, I was blown away by the unique SmartSoft technology. This technology allows the user to electronically adjust the diffusion, focus and propagation of light. Rotolight has taken things even further with the launch of the SmartSoft Box diffuser for the AEOS 2.

Rotolight SmartSoft housing for the AEOS 2

The Rotolight SmartSoft Box is an electronic softbox that mounts in seconds in front of the AEOS 2. Then plug a cable between the light and the softbox, and you’re good to go!

On the back of the AEOS 2, you will now be able to adjust the amount of diffusion you want directly on the device’s color LCD touchscreen. It’s quite impressive!

Image credit: Rotolight

As Rod from Rotolight told us, their team spent a lot of time developing the SmartSoft Box, so there’s no color shifting when dialing in the perfect amount of spread you want. Indeed, when you increase the diffusion setting, the SmartSoft Box communicates with the AEOS 2, which automatically adjusts the green/magenta offset of the LED fixture.

Finally, with the new Rotolight app, you can even control the SmartSoft Box and AEOS 2/NEO 3 and adjust the amount of diffusion you want wirelessly.

Rotolight iOS and Android app

Rotolight now has a new iOS/Android app for the NEO 3 and AEOS 2 luminaires. As the video shows, the app has zero latency. Plus, with real-time two-way communication between the app and the lights, any changes are instantly updated.

The Rotolight app lets you easily adjust Diffusion, Kelvin, Brightness, HSI, Gels, Flash and SFX settings on up to 20 lights. Additionally, the color picker tool lets you use your smartphone/tablet camera to choose the color you want, which is useful for commercial/corporate shoots, for example.

Price and availability

The Rotolight NEO 3 is available now, starting at $599 with the Starter Pack. The AEOS 2 is available now, starting at $1,399 for the light only. The Rotolight SmartSoft Box is available for pre-order for $399, and it should start shipping in October.

SES football coverage is brought to you by Salina Ortho: Quality orthopedic care when you need it!

All eyes were on Minneapolis tonight as the Lions hosted Southeast Saline in the only 2A game across the state to put two teams 2-0.

Despite all the pre-game hype, the game was over before it really started as Cameron Witte kicked the opener 78 yards from home to put the Trojans in the top 8 -0 less than 15 seconds after the start of the match.

“We really set the tone with our special teams to start the game,” said SES head coach Mitch Gebhardt. We have two 2-0 teams coming here to play and we did. When you start a game this way, you know good things are going to happen.

Good things actually happened for the Trojans, who wasted no time in cracking down on the Lions defensively as Danny Kejr knocked out Ryan Parks on his first passing attempt of the game.

In a flash, Southeast walked down the field and hit a touchdown from Gebhardt to Gebhardt as Luke found Jake from the edge of the red zone to give SES a 16-point lead with 8:11 left in the first.

With all the momentum in favor of the visitors, many would have expected a gloomy scene in Minneapolis, but the purple and white came out strong in what almost looked like a Trojan home game.

“The road support from our fans means a lot and we see it,” Gebhardt said. “This community has always followed its teams well and it’s exciting to see so many people in the stands like that.”

SES ensured this game would be a rout in record time, holding a 24-0 lead after the first quarter and a 51-0 advantage at halftime, giving the University starters a start to the evening.

The Trojan secondary didn’t allow a full pass all night, limiting the Lions to just 14 total rushing yards in the first half and just 88 for the entire game.

Offensively, SES looked just as good, as Luke Gebhardt racked up for over 200 yards and four touchdowns through the air to add 32 and a score on the ground.

The Southeast has now beaten Minneapolis in each of the last three seasons by a combined score of 133-16, completely shutting out the Lions in the last two matchups.

With Madison losing to Lebo elsewhere in the state tonight, the Trojans now hold the second-longest active regular-season winning streak in any division, and will look to extend that to 20 games next week.

The Trojans will complete their three-game road trip to Halstead next Friday when they take on the Dragons 1-2.

Diane O’Dwyer, who lives in a six-house terrace in Lower Rathmines Road, says she returned from vacation to find a huge LED sign shining outside her house and the homes of others on the road.

The LED sign boasts of being “eye-catching”, “illuminating” and “vibrant”, but that’s a bit too much for some Rathmines residents who, like O’Dwyer, live nearby.

Dublin City Council says it has received “multiple” complaints about the notice board. “We are not disclosing the exact number as this matter is currently under investigation,” he said in a statement.

“Contacts are ongoing with affected parties regarding this signaling and the specific complaints associated with it.”

He confirmed that Dublin City Council’s Planning Enforcement Section was investigating the complaints in question.

The sign was erected on Saturday and, according to Ms O’Dwyer, it’s so bright that even when she closes the shutters in her bedroom, she can still see it flashing. Ms O’Dwyer described the sign as “enormous” and the experience of living next to it as “like being in a nightclub”.

“This billboard changes every 10 seconds and when it changes it creates a flash effect that goes through the whole house. I had to move to the back of the house – it’s so bright. It’s just awful. I can’t believe this is legal. We cannot block it,” she said.

“These things should be banned in residential areas. They are incredibly brilliant,” she said. A similar sign was erected on Ranelagh Road.

Ms O’Dwyer said she measured the panel’s brightness and found it to be 5,499 Lux at night, which lighting engineers told her was 20 times the legal limit.

Ms O’Dwyer said she thought the panel’s brightness was turned down on Wednesday night following her complaints on RTÉ’s Liveline program, but not enough, she said.

Planning permission for the sign has been granted by Dublin City Council for the notice board located above Eddie Rockets at 284 Rathmines Road Lower.

He was appealed by Cllr Mannix Flynn at An Bord Pleánala. Permission was given on the basis that its maximum luminance would not exceed 250 canderels per square meter.

“We weren’t even told, let alone asked for our consent,” Ms O’Dwyer said.

Dublin City Council confirmed they had donated the billboard and the site, on the Eddie Rockets side, was deemed acceptable for such publicity.

Permission was granted subject to a number of conditions, including that there would be no animation, flashing, 3-D effects, noise, smoke, or full-motion video. Transitions from one video to another would be done by fading rather than flash.

The all-new Lumos Firefly smart bike light system is completely unique in offering more ways than ever to be seen on the road thanks to its modular, adaptable and connected design – and improved visibility simply by spreading more lights so other road users can see. Each individual small light can function as a headlight, taillight, brake light or turn signal depending on your needs. Then combine them to increase your “visibility footprint”. And one of the greatest features of all, they charge wirelessly with Qi & Magsafe charging standards, so no more proprietary cables!

Lumos Firefly 4-in-1 Smart Bike Light

We therefore know Lumos above all for their integrated lighting in the Ultra helmet (now also available with MIPS) and even before that in other suburban equipment. But now, with Firefly, Lumos has released smart lighting from what they describe as the “Ultimate Bike Light System”. What you get is a single, small light that magnetically mounts to your bike wherever you’re looking to improve visibility – handlebars, bar ends, seat post – and can glow and flash white, red or yellow depending on your needs.

vs. Lumos

And since the lights are smart and connected, you can run a setup with anywhere from 1 to 10 lights on your entire bike (see more) and program them all from your phone to determine which ones act as headlights, taillights, brake lights or turn signals. You can control their function with the smartphone app, but you can also activate the turn signals with a wireless remote, or even sync them to your Lumos Ultra helmet.

In fact, if you ride with other people who also have Lumos Firefly lights or their helmets, the lights can synchronize their flashing patterns in Team Sync mode to improve your visibility to other road users.

Technical details

Lumos Firefly smart 4-in-1 bike lights, detail

Each small IPX6 waterproof Lumos Firefly light weighs less than 30g and contains a 500mAh rechargeable battery for a maximum runtime of 35 hours (5 hours in high visibility mode). And if you run out of battery during a ride, you can quickly swap them out and change their functions to fill any gaps in your nighttime visibility.

They recharge in 3-4 hours wirelessly on the Lumos charging base or on a Qi charging base. They also turn off automatically if they are not moving for an extended period.

Each Firefly comes with a standard universal rubber and velcro mounting bracket, and the light itself snaps securely into place with a magnetic clasp. There are also optional turn signal brackets (front or rear) that hold

Lumos does not list the official light output of the approximately 4cm square LED lights, as it varies by color, pattern, and number of lights synced. But they describe the Firefly as “bright enough to make YOU visible from at least half a mile away at night.”

Lumos Firefly Lights – Pricing, Options, and Availability

Lumos Firefly smart 4-in-1 bike lights, color options

Lumos Firefly lights are available for pre-order only on Kickstarter now. But I wouldn’t worry too much about whether your crowdfunding support will turn into a real product. Lumos has used several successful Kickstarter campaigns to launch other products. And they’ve multiplied their goal of $25,000 by 23 times in the first 24 hours of this campaign, so they’ve already launched this one.

Kickstarter deals start from $29 for a light (without their charger), $38 for one with the charger, $64 for a pair, $90 for a trio, $115 for a quartet, $165 for a sextet, $215 for an octet, $265 for a decade of 10 lights with a charging base. Also by popular demand, Lumos has added offers on its existing smart lighting helmets for backers who want to add a fully connected visibility system.

The Lumos Firefly Kickstarter is live until mid-October, with production starting later this year for deliveries scheduled from February/March 2023.

As Russia nears a complete shutdown of gas exports, European governments are in crisis as winter approaches. But countries as powerful as Germany are at an impasse when it comes to reducing energy demand, and less wealthy countries like Spain and Italy face their own particular difficulties. How to solve this problem that only occurs once in a generation?

Like participants in an ancient ritual from the Roman Empire, the people of Naples marched one by one into the city’s central square last week to throw their energy bills into a freshly lit fire, hoping that their public offering might elicit a response from the gods. .

“We will not pay our bills. Now it will be chaos,” chanted locals as they stormed City Hall, protesting the pace of energy price increases in Italy…

Dear Editor,

Prime Minister Andrew Holness recently announced that something needed to be done about the unsightly appearance of some sections of Washington Boulevard, a major gateway into the business sector.

He went on to say that one does not feel pride entering the city from Mandela Highway and looking left towards New Haven. The area, he says, is a horror. He also talked about businesses, such as garages, operating along the roadway.

These are all good points, Prime Minister, and I am sure changes will be welcome. But what about the darkness on Washington Boulevard. For years, residents have complained about the lack of functioning streetlights or lampposts on Washington Boulevard. They wrote in the papers, they called the talk shows, Jamaica Television (TVJ) reported on this a few years ago, and complaints were made to politicians, but nothing happened. People have lost their lives, people have been robbed, people have been kidnapped, several accidents have occurred and residents have had to walk with flashlights to avoid being hit by fast approaching vehicles and who cannot see them cross.

Two devotees of the Boulevard Baptist Church lost their lives trying to cross the road. They were hit by motorists. And because of the darkness on the road, the church had to cancel night services.

Prime Minister Holness, you mentioned that whenever you travel abroad and take the main thoroughfares into the city, the view is deliberately magnificent. I’m sure whenever you travel abroad you don’t see dark roads or pedestrians crossing the road using flashlights to save their lives. Where’s the pride in that?

I really hope that in the beautification projects of Washington Boulevard, appropriate streetlights will be considered. I often wonder if Minister Desmond McKenzie, who is in charge of local government, isn’t using Washington Boulevard, a major gateway into the Corporate Area.

When the light flashes yellow, we are slowing down, not speeding

Don’t slow down

Don’t slow down

When the light flashes yellow, we are slowing down, not speeding

To protect all children!

When the light flashes red, we all have to stop

Everything must stop

Everything must stop

When the light flashes red, we all have to stop

To protect all children!

When the bus goes on, we ride

roll along

When the bus goes on, we ride

To protect all children!
