LONDON, 22-Feb-2021 — /EPR INDUSTRIAL NEWS/ — We are moving more and more into an on-demand world, where the companies who embrace digitalization and agility thrive. We have witnessed that the companies surviving in this new era of manufacturing are the ones who go digital, be agile, and mitigate risk.
The recent pandemic has resulted in new ways of working, highlighting the importance of getting immediate access to products and services. As manufacturers navigate the new normal, realizing digital agility has never been more important.
Having a responsive supply chain proves essential. Once you take a product to market, it is key to safeguard the supply chain. With a constantly changing market, your supply chain should be able to rapidly respond to satisfy demand where that means making more of the same product, or shifting focus to another more in demand item.
When done correctly, automation paves the way to digital agility. Agility results in lower cost and errors, whilst increasing productivity and sales. Digital agility enables manufacturers to quickly pivot when faced with disruption.
When manufacturers get it right, automation provides a path towards digital agility, which ultimately leads to the reduction of cost and errors, while improving productivity and raising revenue. Digital agility is especially important amid COVID-19 disruptions, as it allows manufacturers to quickly pivot.
Digitalization and technology help companies embrace new market trends. Market opportunity is evident in industry, the capture this, companies and their manufacturing partners need to push the existing boundaries and strive to push themselves and digitalize their processes. As products and services are moving more and more on-demand, only those that embrace this will gain competitive advantage.
LONDON, 9-Feb-2021 — /EPR INDUSTRIAL NEWS/ — COVID-19 taught us numerous things when it comes to manufacturing. Throughout 2020, we saw countless industries and companies alike struggling to source materials, complete production, and get their product to the end user. When normal supply chains were disrupted, there was a challenge and difficulty sourcing alternative means to achieve supply chain stability during this time, and keep production going.
Despite the world having a magnitude of advanced manufacturing capabilities, these are difficult to find and access. What has become clearer than ever before, is that current supply chains and manufacturing processes are international, proficient, and well-organised, and at the same time, they are delicate and can struggle delivering transparency to its user when hit with unforeseen instability. This was demonstrated by the shortage of supplies in numerous industries, from medical, to automotive, to digital goods. Not only did raw material become a challenge to source, but key industrial component shortage led to issues with final assembly of goods.
The future of the manufacturing industry requires improved resilience, agility, and supply chain transparency in order to manage any future disruption more effectively. Breaking the existing mold, embracing new technology, and developing a digital supply network which is able to quickly respond and adapt to any situation thrown its way.
This industry requires visible and accessible manufacturing in a digital format. China, in particular, is a country which is at the forefront of this new vision. China boosts advanced manufacturing competences, resources, and has a transparent and accessible infrastructure. Agility and resilience is key, and digital manufacturing platforms, particularly ones that offer an online marketplace at the users fingertips of a multitude of capabilities, is key. This digital core allows high transparency, easy visibility, easy access, and agility when faced with disruption.
Having a digital marketplace which can be accessed at any point from anywhere for any kind of manufacturing requirement allows for a truly agile foundation of digital supply networks. A user can identify manufacturing resources and capabilities at the touch of a button from part designs, features, machine tools, capabilities and more. This essentially breaks down the barriers and reduces effort typically found when sourcing manufacturing resources and capabilities.
The future will see more complex and improved versions of this digital manufacturing marketplace, allowing a user to be able to search for diverse manufacturing resources and capabilities and multiple variables such as manufacturing capacity (such as machine tool / specification) and complex part design. A further development is likely to be a more inclusive service, allowing the user to source based on capability to manufacture components with specific requirements, such as 5-axis CNC turning with horsepower and x/y/z travel metrics with metal additive manufacturing as an option.
Manufacturing is an extensive and multifaceted sphere, therefore a comprehension platform with effective searchable options is something which needs to be continually adapted and upgraded. Haizol’s manufacturing platform provides users with over 200,000 suppliers in Asia with wide-ranging capabilities and the ability to filter based on a variety of criteria. In terms of supplier, the user can select based on manufacturing type, region, industry, factory size, employee number, annual turnover, certification, R&D capacity, and more. They also have the option to filter by product, choosing process, material, and region, to see examples of what factories have previously made, to guide their decision making.
LONDON, 20-Jan-2021 — /EPR INDUSTRIAL NEWS/ — With travelling both nationally and internationally still difficult for many in Europe, sourcing new suppliers for manufacturing custom parts can prove challenging. To be instantly connected with new suppliers without leaving home is possible through Haizol. This platform is an on-demand manufacturing service which connects buyers with manufacturers that fit their project requirements.
As a buyer, you can register an account online, and submit a request for quote, together with an optional two level NDA agreement. The quote is then immediately sent through to over 200,000 factories across Asia. These factories are partners of Haizol, pre-vetted and screened in terms of their capacity, certifications, quality control, MOQ, and customer reviews. Those with the right capabilities are able to respond with their price for the project, this usually happens within 24 hours.
A customer can filter the quotes based on several criteria, and also choose to get more information of a potential supplier. Haizol is on hand to assist with any questions or with communication between the two parties. Once selected, production can begin immediately, with peace of mind that the project is being carried out by experts in the field.
Current suppliers include thousands specializing in CNC machining, injection molding, casting, stamping, fabrication, and mold making. They also offer a wide range of secondary processes, such as coating, anodizing, conditioning, and assembling.
With new suppliers joining the platform daily, matchmaking is possible in minutes. Sourcing manufacturers through Haizol not only reduces cost, it enables time to be freed up to focus on other aspects of the business. Having access to stable suppliers is crucial during this period, and mitigates the risk of supply chain instability.
The fate of Australia’s diminishing manufacturing industry has long been hanging in the balance – and then?
BIBRA LAKE, Perth, Western Australia , 23-Nov-2020 — /EPR INDUSTRIAL NEWS/ — Along came COVID-19. For a sector that had been neglected for decades, while the pandemic wasn’t quite the final nail in the coffin, it certainly brought with it the shock wave that made our government sit up and take notice.
And maybe – just maybe – the situation might bring the stars into alignment that will help close the country’s chasm of a skills gap.
Manufacturing is Crucial for Our Economic Recovery
Change is always hard to come by, especially at the extent manufacturing needs. But there are some green roots showing. Thanks to the new government taskforce set up in response to an industry-led recommendation plan, the desperately needed funding for investment and growth is beginning to trickle through.
So what does this mean for the industry, and in particular the small and medium-sized businesses that make up the majority of the sector?
To fully comprehend this we need to drive deep into the rot that’s now endemic throughout. Only by understanding the mistakes that’ve been made and why we have such a major skills crisis, can we begin to turn this unfortunate turn of events around.
By far the most effective way of doing this is to lay bare the biggest error of all, and it all boils down to this: we’ve forgotten the value of local business and manufacturing capabilities. It’s hard to pinpoint exactly when this occurred, but if COVID has brought about anything, it’s that we’ve had a hard, sharp lesson as to the importance of local support and expertise. Suddenly the crucial need for home-grown supply chain capabilities has become vital for our businesses and industries, and this can only be brought back up to scratch with a long-term strategy and, most importantly, the necessary funding.
Manufacturing Provides the Building Blocks from which All Other Industries can Grow
The world desperately scrabbled for commodities (ventilators, PPE, toilet roll!) and we were among them. Once upon a time our powerhouse nation boasted some of the best skilled workers on the planet. Today we are but a shadow of our former selves.
So has COVID achieved what many industry experts have failed to do over the previous few decades, and forced the hand of our government to invest in the sector? Perhaps so… What has definitely happened is the following:
We’re beginning to understand the many benefits of local support and expertise
We’ve realised that the value of local business and manufacturing capabilities is more about quality and service, and less about price
The importance of great B2B relationships is something our economy relies on
These are the reasons that, at last, the funding is starting to be put into place for SMEs to be able to upskill their workers and invest in advanced manufacturing processes. It’s only through initiatives such as these that we can become competitive on a global scale. In addition, it gives these companies the opportunity to innovate and commercialise new technologies.
So… Is 2020 the year that manufacturing turns the corner and provides the bedrock necessary for our country to begin to close the skills gap? Only time will tell for sure. But what it has meant is that companies such as SixDe have begun the slow uphill climb – and long may it continue.
An example of this is SixDe’s expansion in preparation of the commercialisation of Magneto, a robotic platform that is the future of inspection robotics. The industry relies on such innovation. With such projects and advancement, we not only get the chance to retrain our current workers, but we lay the foundations that will attract the brightest young minds from around the world to come and live, study and work in our wonderful country. So perhaps, just perhaps, we can drag some positivity from the awful situation that is COVID, and use it to bring about a greater good for Australia.
To find out more about Magneto and the home-produced precision machine components from SixDe, visit www.sixde.com.au or call 08 9434 1112.

Express Cleaning have a full range of cleaning equipment for the commercial and industrial market and they deal with some of the best manufacturers in the market today. Karcher is one of the top names in Pressure Washers and they supply a range that covers form the small householder job to the major industrial equipment. In some cases the item to be cleaned can be brought to a cleaning station where there is a good water supply and an electrical power supply but there are many cases where the item to be cleaned has to be cleaned in situ and the cleaner brought to site and Express Cleaning and Karcher have the ideal piece of equipment for the job.
Express Cleaning Supplies are pleased to promote the Karcher HD801B Cage Industrial Pressure Washer, which has been designed with the industrial or construction industry in mind. The Karcher HD801B Cage Industrial Pressure Washer is an excellent piece of equipment and has been constructed to be able to be taken to the point of operation by mechanical means. The pressure washer is mounted in a large tubular steel cage, which offers fantastic protection against the knocks and bumps suffered in site movement. The cage has a large lifting hook to enable it to be taken around the site by crane or fork lift truck or JCB type machine; it also has two large pneumatic tired wheels so that it can be easily manoeuvred when close to its final destination. This machine is ideal for rugged work and will take the hardship of a large industrial site.
Express Cleaning Supplies is delighted that this machine is powered by the excellent Honda 5.5 Horsepower GX160 engine. This means the machine is self-powered and only requires water on site, which can of course be tanked to site if there is no other way. The engine provides a water supply with a working pressure of 140 bar and a flow rate of up to 650 litres per hour. The machine has a 10 metre high pressure hose to enable flexibility around the work place.
Express Cleaning Supplies notes that the Karcher HD801B Cage Industrial Pressure Washer uses a long spray lance, which is some 550mm in length and works with a triple nozzle. Karcher have designed the triple nozzle to provide either a high pressure pencil jet for spot and difficult small area cleaning, a high pressure fan jet that works with a 15 degree angle and a low pressure 40 degree angle jet. The low pressure jet is very important as it gives the operator the option of using a detergent to loosen the dirt from the desired surface.
This Karcher HD801B Cage Industrial Pressure Washer is a real workhorse in the industry and Express Cleaning Supplies is delighted with the flexibility and reliability of this piece of cleaning equipment. A quick look at the Express Cleaning web site will show just how good the washer can be.
Express Cleaning Supplies are a UK online retailer of commercial cleaning equipment, from simple cleaning products through to durable and tough cleaning machines for day to day jobs.
Laundry 365 are always trying to keep ahead of the game and they have put a great deal of work into getting the service right for the customer after he has set up and run his laundry. Laundry 365 is able to supply a vast range of laundry equipment from virtually every major supplier and this goes across the full range of laundry requirements from washing machines, tumble dryers, hydro extractors, ironers, finishing stations and drying cabinets. They are also able to offer excellent repair and servicing options to ensure that the equipment once purchased and installed will work well and stay working. This even includes a 365 day a year contact and repair service.
Laundry 365 have realised that there are other requirements that are needed to ensure longevity in the laundry and to help all the servicing side of the business they maintain a vast store of spare parts for most major machines. They also have a vast store of knowledge on old and obsolete machines and are excellent at sourcing spare laundry parts for the machine that may have been super-ceded many years ago but which still does an excellent job most of the time but requires a part, which is not easily found. Laundry 365 are very proud to have achieved a great deal of success in repairing and finding the right parts for good machines that would have had to have been thrown on the scrap heap.
One of the more recent work projects has been carried out in trying and most often succeeding in bringing older machines up to date by reprogramming them to a new and more efficient routine. Most modern day machines have a computer capability that allows them to be programmed to a user defined capability which will enable the customer to deal with problems or work programmes specific to his customer base. The programming system can be difficult to understand at times but Laundry 365 has expertise, which can help and return that older machine to deal with the intricacies of modern cleaning equipment. It is not just washing machines that have programmed machines but also tumble dryers and many of the finishing machines.
Laundry 365 can re-programme the washing machine to include an Ozone Disinfection Infused rinse cycle something that was not available years ago, also it may be that the operating temperature requires reducing. The advantage of re-programming is that it may be possible to significantly reduce the operating costs of running the machine and hence the cost per unit laundered lowered to increase the competitivity of the laundry in the market place. It can also help to improve the “Green” credentials of the laundry.
Laundry 365 is willing to discuss any problem that the customer may have and hopefully find a solution. There is a saying which comes to mind, that “if it is not broke do not fix it” but if Laundry 365 can reduce the running costs by 10% to 20% perhaps it is broke.
FSSG is a patented electrical device installed in series with elevator door locks safety circuit, to detect any by-pass that may result in elevator running with open door, upon detection FSSG prevents elevator “NORMAL” operation and changes elevator control into “SERVICE” mode, thus prevents automatic movement with open door, thus prevents horrific elevator accidents.
How FSSG protect the public riders
Elevator runs with open doors because of 2 reasons only, either Mechanical or electrical failure, Mechanical failure (machine brake or suspension) that led to elevator runs with open door, has been resolved by the Unintended Car Movement( UCM) protection. the only problem with it, in case of door locks by-pass the UCM is disabled and cannot protect the public.
Electrical failure (door lock by-pass, car switch by-pass) up till now considered to be Human error / unresolved, with the FSSG this problem has been resolved, Human error is not valid any more.
Today’s news, we’ve successfully implemented a new safety method for which, FSSG employs the UCM to creates for the first time in elevator history a comprehensive elevator protection, to ensures that no matter what’s the failure, “this elevator will not run automatically with open door.”
FSSG Description & Functions
FSSG is an electric device that connected in series to any safety chain to be monitored, such as landing door locks or car gate switch.
FSSG detects any by pass of safety circuit, either intentionally by elevator mechanic or unintentionally by-pass resulting from Short-Circuit in elevator controller or the shaft.
FSSG upon detection of such by-pass, switches elevator control into inspection mode. thus prevents accidents results from automatic movement with open door, but allows elevator mechanic to run the elevator under inspection mode.
FSSG does not disable the UCM protection during by-pass as it’s distinguish between elevator runs on by-pass, or elevator runs on safety circuit., even though by-pass exist FSSG detects also a single landing door by-pass or car gate switch by-pass, based on car door position, according to international elevator code A17.1 & EN81-20.
FSSG is self protected, it detects and alert any attempt to disable / by-pass the FSSG by placing a jumper wire over it.
FSSG detect and alert an internal failure of the FSSG
FSSG employ the UCM to prevent either mechanical or electrical failure that result with car running with open door.
FSSG is easy to adapt to all kinds of existing elevators
FSSG is Highly reliable, low cost and easy to install
The Workplace Depot is delighted to announce that their range of Fetra trucks and trolleys will now be under warranty for 10 years; previously the warranty was for five years.
Many workplaces rely heavily on trucks and trolleys to move goods around and they can take a heavy pounding from regular, hefty usage. So it may come as a surprise that a company could guarantee the reliability of such an item for an extended period.
Ken Miller, Director of the Workplace Depot explained, “The reason we can give a 10 year warranty is because the equipment is now manufactured at highly efficient production facilities using some of the most advanced precision machinery. The Fetra range of trucks and trolleys are also powder-coated and undergo vigorous shot blasting pre-treatment.”
The new manufacturing process extends the product life as well as keeping the finish in tip-top condition for much longer.
There may be cheaper alternatives in the truck and trolley ranges provided by other suppliers, but buying an inferior item can be a false economy. This type of transport equipment has notoriously high levels of wear and tear, so lower quality equipment may only last a few years and therefore need to be replaced. This wastes both time and money versus the alternative of purchasing a reliable product that is guaranteed for 10 years.
Steve Miller, The Workplace Depot’s Managing Director commented on the quality of the Fetra products, “We are proud of the fact that if any of the Fetra products fail within 10 years, we will replace the whole truck or trolley, not just replace a part. We will of course do this free of charge. Our range is built to last and nothing says this more than a 10 year warranty.”

Laundry 365 is pleased to have formed a good relationship with the 5th largest domestic appliance manufacturer in Europe namely Fagor and sells a complete range of their products. However Laundry 365 has now moved into the complete dishwashing area as well as the laundry business. The company has vast experience in the clothes washing industry and its expertise in the use and servicing of all the laundry based machines, from Commercial Laundry Equipment Parts to full service packages. The similarity in the ware washing business machines to the laundry washers and other machines is such that laundry 365 has an excellent base with which to advise, supply and service any of the warewashers that are at the top of the game. They also have all the links to the suppliers and also to the user trade as they are very often the same as those that require laundries and washing services.
The Fagor AD20C Glass Washer is a great machine for a good standard operation that requires a steady supply of clean glasses ready for instant return to service. Fagor is based in the Basque country and is a company that has steadily grown over the years and provides excellent quality machines for the catering trade. It regularly competes quite successfully with all the major domestic appliance companies at a competitive price and with a high quality product. The Fagor AD20C Glass Washer will wash some 320 glasses per hour and uses a microprocessor control to operate the unit in 3 major programmes working from a remove all problems programme for heavily soiled glasses to a quick programme for typical low level contamination. The quality of the cleaning is excellent and the glasses will come out dry and clean and ready to use.
Laundry 365 notes that the Fagor AD20C Glass Washer is ideal for the standard kitchen, bar or hostelry as it provides a large quantity of glasses from a relatively small machine. The unit fits under the standard work counter so that it is out of the way and yet is easily accessible and being fitted at low level it leaves the upper area open for work space or open counter usage. There is an automatic detergent dispenser which will provide the right quantity of detergent on a consistent basis.
It is noted that Laundry 365 are pleased with the versatility of the Fagor AD20C Glass Washer as it will operate successfully in the full range of catering industries. It works ideally in the bar or pub trade where the unit will sit quite safely under the bar counter to provide a good quick access to recycled glasses on a regular basis. It can be loaded by bar staff in between serving and fits with the continual usage and recycling system that this usage requires. On the other hand it will also fit quite happily in the restaurant or large kitchen where glasses are returned from the eating area sorted from the crockery and washed ready for return service. This is a good workhorse supplied by a great supplier in Laundry 365.
A Quick Pick Crane & Rigging has been successfully growing in the Rough Terrain Crane Rental market. Currently, the company owns (1) 80 Ton rough terrain and (2) 50 Ton rough terrain cranes, but has the ability to acquire more and/or larger sizes for long term jobs.
Rough Terrain Cranes work well on heavy highway and bridge jobs, jobsites requiring rebar and concrete pours, and steel erection. Compact design, flotation tires, 4 wheel drive, and crab steering allow these cranes to work on tight jobsites with mud, rock, dirt, or snow. The company has also done work on cell sites and set a number of modular homes with the cranes because of harsh jobsite conditions.
A Quick Pick Crane & Rigging Service is based in Derby, CT, services the CT, NY, MA, RI areas, and provides boom trucks, mobile hydraulic, rough terrain, tower, and crawler cranes for rent to the construction industry. Their rigging division provides HVAC/mechanical rigging, machinery moving, sculpture/artwork moving. The company also provides ancillary trucking and industrial storage for their crane and rigging customers.
Since the last update, Dakshiden Corporation has been struggling to complete and close an agreement with what initially appeared to be a very interested party however, to date has not been successful in doing so. After a number of meetings it emerged that the company that we were negotiating with had a number of internal issues to deal with prior to being able to make any commitment and eventually it abruptly ceased all correspondence with Dakshidin Corporation.
As a part of those negotiations, Dakshidin Corporation was undertaking a financial audit. Despite the fact that communications with the other party stopped prior to Dakshidin Corporation having to supply them the financial statements, we were still endeavoring to complete the audit but were unable to do so as a result of a lack of funds; in fact, the company has not had the funds necessary to provide regular updates.
As a result of this long period without sales, Dakshidin Corporation is once again in default with Restec LLC. however, Restec LLC has assured Dakshidin Corporation that an order of 50 windmills would cure this default. 50 windmills is the minimum order acceptable to the manufacturer.
Dakshidin Corporation is currently exploring other sources to initiate and close a deal for the manufacturing and sales of the water pumping windmills however, given the disappointing results of the past, we do not wish to give the impression that any deal is imminent. We will release updates as soon as there is something tangible to report.

Coherent Inc. (Santa Clara, CA) has introduced a new range of diode-laser based line generators which deliver enhanced flexibility, unique output optimization capabilities, and extended lifetimes. This series of new line generators, called the StingRay, will enable the construction of faster and more accurate machine vision systems that utilize 3D triangulation. The StingRay series mates a diode laser with high performance electronics and precision, refractive optics for collimation and line generation covering the widest available range of fan angles. They also incorporate optional diffractive elements for creating complex output patterns. StingRay models are available with output powers as high as 200 mW and at key wavelengths throughout the 450 nm to 1550 nm spectral range, including the popular 450 nm, 520 nm, 635 nm, and 660 nm lines.
StingRay lasers are the first to feature an industry leading, line intensity non-uniformity down to ±5% in a standard product. This high uniformity reduces the need for image post-processing, and translates directly into increased measurement speed and dimensional accuracy. StingRay lasers are also unique in offering external user focusable optics, which allow the laser line to be precisely optimized for the exact distance over which it is projected. Additionally, the StingRay’s optomechanical design permits “dynamic line balancing,” enabling simple correction of any intensity bias in configurations where the laser must be used at off axis illumination angles. To further enhance usability, Stingray lasers also include an internal “health monitor” that indicates when a diode module is approaching end of life, thus allowing for planned replacement, and avoiding production downtime due to an unexpected failure.
