Pilkington Optiwhite™ for maximum transparency of glass

If we carefully observe a normal float glass we can notice that, contrary to the cliché according to which the glass is transparent and colorless, in reality it assumes a greenish color, which is seen in particular when observing the edges. The reason for this effect is due to the presence of iron oxides in the raw materials that make up the vitrifiable mixture. Instead, there are applications where, it’s required to glass the characteristic of being colorless and have maximum transparency, useful for aesthetic and functional aspects. From an aesthetic point of view there are situations where maximum transparency is very important. Let’s think about some of interior environments of buildings, where the stairs, partition walls or balustrades, are designed precisely to avoid being a hindrance to the eye, or not to alter the color balances of the environment, so that they cannot be truly transparent. The same problem can be found in the case of some furniture where tables, showcases, shelves, need to be fully transparent style. Conversely, from a functional point of view, one of the typical characteristics of the role of windows in a building is to maximize the lighting, for...

That makes it easier to mount the lamp on a helmet and tuck the battery under a bar, or in a pack. Some companies like Lupine allow you to buy a larger battery so you can power an extended night ride. Just remember that a larger battery means more weight to carry. Look for batteries or headlamp units that offer a battery-warning indicator so you know how much time you have remaining. Some batteries also allow you to connect and power or recharge devices—d...

September style guide: Back to school fashion for grownups Shape left right Shape Shape

This annual seasonal switch-up is undoubtedly a hangover from our school days, when the ninth month of the year heralded the dreaded transition from summer holidays back to classroom shackles. But the mood still applies in adulthood. Come June, longer days and balmier climes leave us with a childlike liberation, regardless of our unchanging work loads. By the time September rolls around, we’re ready to knuckle down, an attitude that applies as much to our professional choices as our sartorial ones. But not in the way you might think. “There’s a certain element of nostalgia surrounding September that we can’t quite shake off when it comes to our clothing choices,” explains Anna Ross, womenswear editor at trend forecasting company WGSN. Look closer at the items that continue to be popular at this time of year as listed below, and you’ll notice that many bear a striking resemblance to some of the staples we wore as uniform in our school days. There’s a reason why JW Anderson’s double-breasted trench coat continues to sell like hot cakes and do the rounds of fashion influencer’s Instagram accounts. Not only do the classic epaulettes flatter any figure, but they tak...

Multitasking Machining Center Cuts Process Steps as Well as Metal: Modern Machine Shop

Consistent queue delays between the lathe and the drilling machine led Koso KentIntrol to purchase a multitasking machine from Starrag that was capable of doing both.  UK-based Koso KentIntrol’s investment in a Heckert 630 DBF horizontal machining center from Starrag is paying off in the machining of valve bodies, not least because the machine’s ability for single-setup milling, turning and drilling has eliminated the need for two separate machines — and all the associated resetting and queuing times — to produce finished workpieces. “In addition to replacing separate machining operations, the Heckert DBF has effectively simplified the production process by allowing us to load once with raw material, undertake complete machining, then unload a finished part ready for inspection. That also means we’re effectively getting more parts per week from that machine than we were using separate machines,” says Richard Addy, machine shop manager. Koso KentIntrol, founded in 1967 as Introl, is a worldwide supplier of a range of choke, control and butterfly valves as well as actuators and instruments for industries such as oil and gas, petrochemical and power generation. The company specific...

(Related: The 8 Abs Exercises Halle Berry Does for a Killer Core) Berry and Lee Thomas introduced the products in the line while answering followers’ questions about all things abs. In response to a question about how to get rid of lower belly fat, Berry talked about an abs wheel in her new fitness collection, sharing that she uses one in her own workout routine “ad nauseam.” For those who might assume that an abs wheel is yet another bogus “as-seen-on-TV” product, think again: “When it comes to abs work, most people think crunches and sit-ups. The abs wheel does the opposite. It strengthens your abs and back, all while staying in a neutral spine position,” Chris Matsui, C.S.C.S., director of Fusion Performance Training, pre...
