We’re looking forward to working alongside Technoweld Enterprises, to improve the efficiency, productivity, and profits of liquid processing companies throughout India”

— Gilbert Murphy

NOTTINGHAM, NOTTINGHAMSHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM, December 18, 2018 / — HPS Product Recovery Solutions, the leading experts in process and hygienic product recovery systems, have appointed Technoweld Enterprises as their official representatives in India.

Based in Mumbai, India, Technoweld Enterprises will work in partnership with HPS to deliver pigging and liquid transfer projects to companies throughout the country.

The company is also the official, and sole Indian supplier for HPS spare parts and accessories, including pigs, pig detectors, seal kits, valves, and other components.

Increase Presence in India

Although HPS already has an established customer base in India, staff in the business are looking forward to working with Technoweld Enterprises to grow the number of customers they have in India.

Gilbert Murphy, HPS founder, and CEO said,

“We are really pleased that Technoweld Enterprises are partnering with HPS to bring the benefits of pigging technology to an even wider audience within the country. This partnership also allows the Indian market to have more direct access to our products and services”.

“HPS are the world’s leading experts in pigging systems and liquid transfer solutions. Although we have worked with businesses in India for a number of years, Technoweld Enterprises' in-depth understanding of the Indian market combined with their technical expertise will support us in expanding and strengthening our product offerings even further”.

Soyeb Kapasi, Sales Manager of Technoweld Enterprises added,

“We are excited about this partnership and are proud to be working alongside the market leader in process pigging with a real focus on quality, innovation and customer support”.

“Pigging is an exciting technology with lots of benefits, such as increasing yields, speeding up changeovers and reducing waste.

“We’re really looking forward to helping companies throughout India, in a wide variety of industries, to achieve their financial, operational and sustainability goals by recovering residual liquids from pipelines”.

What is Pigging?

Pigging (or ‘liquid product recovery’), uses a specialist projectile (the ‘pig) to recover residual liquid from process pipelines. The result is increased yields, improved efficiency and higher profits. And because less product gets flushed away, it eliminates long, intense and inefficient cleaning cycles. In turn, this speeds up changeovers, reduces CIP chemical and effluent costs, saves water, and helps improve environmental sustainability.

Pigging technology is in wide use in many different industries. These include food and beverage, personal care, cosmetics, pet food, paint, homecare products, plus more.

Many of the world's largest process companies use pigging because the results are fast, and the benefits substantial. Payback is typically less than 12 months, delivering a high return on investment.

Gilbert Murphy concludes,

“We’re looking forward to working alongside Technoweld Enterprises, to improve the efficiency, productivity, and profits of liquid processing companies throughout India”.

The collaboration between HPS and Technoweld Enterprises will also speed up local communications, service support and response times.

About HPS Product Recovery Solutions

Founded in 1995, HPS Product Recovery Solutions increases its customers profitability by maximizing product yields, reducing waste, helping environmental sustainability and improving efficiency. This is through product-recovery (pigging) systems, liquid distribution and transfer solutions for processing industries.

Debra Hymen of Real Deb Realty to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

HIGHLAND PARK, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES, December 17, 2018 / — Through her 22-year career in Real Estate, Debra Hymen’s approach has been to educate and empower her clients throughout the entire process, whether buyer or seller.

“'Debbie works for the client, not for the sale,'” says Hymen. “It's not my money; it's somebody else's money. And that’s the philosophy I’ve always adhered to. When I'm with my clients, I give them the information they need to make the best decision for themselves.”

Now Hymen has finally struck out on her own with Real Deb Realty.

“I decided it was time to create my own universe,” says Hymen. “Clients of mine have recently said to me, ‘What took you so long? Why haven't you done this before?’ I'm a Certified International Property Specialist. I'm an Accredited Buyer Representative. I'm a Certified Residential Specialist. I know how to market my properties. I know how to do this. I can do this myself. I'm loving it. It's powerful.”

Specializing in residential properties, Hymen’s clients are everyone from newlyweds to singles purchasing for the first time to investors.

“This business brings you to the real world, where the majority of the population is and where life happens,” says Hymen. “I like to think that I represent all people, not just six to eight-figure buyers but average people just like me."

Hymen represents sellers as well but says the key to success when selling is all about pricing it right.

“You usually get closer to if not more than your asking price if your price it where it should be,” says Hymen. “I'm not a data person, but every year the data points to the same thing.

“I am very positive about representing the people that I work with and I believe I can help anybody that comes to me. That's why I think I've been successful. It's not about my interest; it's about theirs. And I think they know that when they work with me. I'm there and I've listened.”

Workers’ Compensation Attorney for Vineland New Jersey

Each Workers’ Compensation Claim is different and needs to be handled carefully by an experienced workers’ compensation attorney.

You are eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits if you sustain a workplace injury or an occupational illness preventing you from returning to a job.”

— Craig Altman, Esq.

VINELAND, NJ, UNITED STATES, December 14, 2018 / — +

You are eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits if you sustain a workplace injury or an occupational illness preventing you from returning to a job according to New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Law. Benefits from a workplace accident can be permanent disability benefits, temporary disability benefits, or death benefits.

Each Workers’ Compensation Claim is different and needs to be handled carefully by an experienced workers’ compensation attorney. If not, you may lose wages, compensation for medical bills, and other damages that as an injured worker you deserve.

You’re from Vineland, New Jersey. Since 1952 workers like you have been the tough, hardworking and independent backbone of the town’s workforce. From “The Avenue” to the Boulevard, you represent your town with the same work ethic that Vineland-native Mike Trout brings to every at-bat. But just like Trout can hit the Disabled List, Vineland workers can also get injured on the job. If you do get hurt at work, you’re going to need to review your options carefully and consider workers’ compensation benefits.

You are the heart and soul of Vineland, New Jersey. You are its workforce.

You may be a teacher, working at D’Ippolito Elementary School and suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome or neck/back injuries from repetitive grading too many papers long into the night.

You could be a part of the Vineland Historical and Antiquarian Society devoting your life to protecting the cultural identity of Vineland’s past. But who protects you when you are injured at work? Under certain circumstances the “benefits” promised to workers may get denied or not correctly cover accidents at work. This is where trained workers’ compensation attorneys who are familiar with New Jersey’s Worker’s Compensation Laws step in to assist.

You may be a DJ working at one of Vineland’s locally-licensed radio stations such as WVLT (92.1) or WMIZ (1270). Injuries happen everywhere, even in showbiz! The most common injuries for media and communications industry workers include:

Strains and sprains from repetitive trauma
Slip, trip and fall accidents
Being struck by a falling object
Carpal tunnel or back injuries from repetitive motion
Being caught in or injured by a machine at the office
Accidents involving tools

A work-related injury can happen at any time. You were doing your job, handling your business and bringing home the bacon. But then you got hurt at work, and now your family’s financial future is in the hands of strangers. Choose your workers’ compensation attorney wisely. Don’t play games with your benefits or wait to file your claim. The insurance company does not have your interests at heart and is not on your side, but a skilled workers’ comp lawyer does.

A wide variety of disputes can happen when you file a workers’ compensation claim, including:

Lost wages: Your rate of pay can be set improperly, giving you less compensation than you deserve.

New Products And Geographical Expansion Are Key Strategies For Synthetic Dye And Pigment Global Market, A New Report

Regional Analysis Of Dyes And Pigment Markets Annual Gain By $ Billions 2022 Over 2018

Regional Analysis Of Dyes And Pigment Markets Annual Gain By $ Billions 2022 Over 2018

LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UK, December 12, 2018 / — Companies such as Huntsman Corporation’s subsidiary Venator are targeting growth through launching innovative solutions for the global synthetic dye and pigment market, Synthetic Dye And Pigment Global Market Opportunities And Strategies To 2022, a new report from The Business Research Company, shows. Venator’s new products include GRANUFIN® Azur, a cobalt blue pigment in Venator’s GRANUFIN®’s range of virtually dust-free, color pigments launched in February 2018, and in 2017, ALTIRIS® W400 pigment, a new near infrared reflecting titanium dioxide (TiO2) pigment for exterior plastic applications. The dyes and pigments market leader, Clariant International, is also pursuing growth through new products; it recently launched two new pigment dispersions for the Indian printing industry, Permajet IN-C and Flexonyl WF. Other dye and pigment manufacturers are focused instead on growth through expanding their business operations to new geographical markets. In the case of Tronox Ltd., for instance, both direct investment and acquisitions will play a part in their entry into new markets. In February 2017, the company entered into an agreement to acquire the National Titanium Dioxide Company Limited (Cristal) of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. In April 2016, Tronox opened a new ZAR 3.3 billion ($248.0 million) plant at Fairbreeze mine in Empangeni, South Africa.

Some of these strategies appear to be paying off. The global market for dyes and pigments, which was growing more slowly than global GDP, is forecast to put on a spurt that will see its growth rate increase by nearly 75% in the next few years. Much of this growth will come from Asia Pacific where the demand accounted for over a third of the whole dyes and pigments market in 2017 and is growing at a rate nearly one-and-a-half times the global average. Asia-Pacific is among the world’s largest producers of textiles and consumer plastic products which are major end-users of synthetic dyes.

China is the dominant consumer of dyes and organic pigments, and a major automobile manufacturer, which has resulted in large-scale use of automotive paints and coatings formulated by using pigments. China and India are major exporters of synthetic dyes and pigments. They also export large quantities of important raw materials for producing dyes and pigments and dye intermediate chemicals, which are subsequently modified for use in Western countries.

TIDDOX Launches 1000 Sheet 3-Ply Jumbo Paper Towel Roll

Tiddox image

Targets Industrial, Automotive, Painting, Mining, Food & Medical Markets

Introducing the new European manufactured 3-ply 1000 sheet Jumbo Paper Towel Roll”


SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, December 11, 2018 / — TIDDOX a leading wipes, cloths and rags specialist, today announced the introduction of its new European manufactured 3-ply 1000 sheet Jumbo Paper Towel Roll, which has applications in the industrial, automotive, painting, printing, mining, food service, hospitality, and medical markets.

The focus of the design and development of this product was to provide professional users with a cost-effective, quality-manufactured paper towel roll incorporating the latest innovative technologies of micro-embossed synchronized lamination. The result is high tech 3-ply, glued wipers that are stronger, more absorbent, tear resistant and have extra wet strength. These features enhance the durability and effectiveness of the paper towels, making them suitable for industrial and commercial cleaning.

Each 350m roll contains 1000 sheets of 3-ply glued micro-embossed mixed cellulose blue wipers (36.5cm width) that are solvent resistant, capable of heavy-duty applications involving oils, grease, lubricants, paints, inks and absorbing other viscous liquids. The rolls are an economical, general purpose solution in workshops and factories, and can be dispensed from either floor or wall metal dispensers.

Due to their near lint-free performance, these non-scratch blue towels can also be used for delicate cleaning tasks such as cleaning glass, polishing sensitive equipment parts and wiping down surfaces.

Given the disposable nature of these single-use towels, they are increasingly popular in hygienic environments to dry hands and clean surfaces, and strong enough not to tear or break apart easily.

With 1000 perforated sheets on each roll, they are a cost-effective, cloth and rag replacement that is more easily transported and stored.

More and more businesses are switching from unhygienic, increasingly expensive cloths and rags, to these cost-effective, disposable wipers. With their good wet strength, high absorbency, tensile strength, and affordability, it is not hard to see the appeal of this product over traditional cloths and rags.

MoviTHERM introduces IoT-ready Thermal Smart Camera

MoviTHERM Logo

IRSX Thermal Smart Camera

IRSX Thermal Smart Camera - Open Version

MoviTHERM – Advanced Thermography Solutions announces today the introduction of a new breed of IoT-ready Thermal Smart Cameras to the North American Market.

The IRSX Smart Thermal Camera really is a game-changer, providing all the benefits of a thermal camera, with the flexibility of IoT integration.”

— Markus Tarin, President & CEO, MoviTHERM

IRVINE, CA, USA, December 10, 2018 / — MoviTHERM, a leading US distributor for the new IRSX Smart Thermal Camera (from Automation Technology GmbH, Germany), is excited to offer a vastly more capable, non-contact alternative to the conventional RTD and thermocouple sensors of the past. The IRSX Series of smart cameras offer a slew of industrial and web-technology based communication protocols, making them a perfect candidate for IoT (Internet of Things) applications. By eliminating the need for a PC and thermal imaging software, system complexity and associated costs are reduced. Camera setup and configuration is all done via standard web browser.

The need for sensing heat or measuring temperature in manufacturing processes is not new. A multitude of temperature sensing solutions are available and have been around for decades. Traditionally, wired temperature sensors, such as thermocouples or RTDs did this job. However, sensors of these types must be in contact with the medium or part that needs to be measured, which is not always desirable or even possible. Additionally, thermocouples and RTDs only provide a very localized temperature measurement. Things become even more challenging, when the product to be measured is in motion.

Thermal Cameras address these challenges and provide a non-contact method of temperature sensing from a safe distance. The image detector of these cameras is made up from thousands of temperature-sensing pixels, thus providing much more insight to temperature distribution and behavior.

IRSX Cameras are available in two different sensor resolutions, the IRSX-336 with 336 x 256 pixels and the IRSX-640 with 640 x 512 pixels. Both camera models come in a rugged aluminum enclosure with IP67 protection. A large selection of lens options, from super wide angle to telephoto, assures the perfect fit for just about any application. An open frame camera option for customer specific designs and OEMs round up the offering.

The cameras are competitively-priced, which makes them perfect candidates for a variety of industrial applications, such as machine condition monitoring, package seal inspection, continuous web monitoring, gas flare monitoring, hot glue verification, in process hot gas and infrared weld monitoring, non-destructive testing and many more.

MoviTHERM offers free application consulting for customers interested in implementing these smart cameras or other thermal imaging solutions.

Endress+Hauser Deploys Sopheon’s Accolade Software

Image of workers in an industrial automation work site

Innovation Planning, Collaborative Roadmapping and Management Efficiencies aim to Safeguard Continued Market Leadership Position

Sopheon set itself apart with the promise of best-practice content embedded in its software to guide us in defining our new processes, and its knowledgeable and highly responsive team”

— Dr. Peter Selders, Director of Technology, Endress+Hauser

AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS, December 5, 2018 / — Sopheon, a global leader for enterprise innovation management solutions, today announces a client relationship with Endress+Hauser SE+Co. KG, a global supplier of products, solutions and services for industrial process automation.

Endress+Hauser SE+Co. KG, headquartered in Germany and part of the Switzerland-based Endress+Hauser group, has long driven growth through innovation. The group introduced 57 new products and 261 new patent applications in 2017 alone. The company found, however, that continued industry leadership called for a further step in continuous improvement of internal planning and decision-making processes.

“We engaged with Sopheon initially with a view to implementing an improved Stage-Gate® process that would keep us focused on the right investments. This quickly evolved into a requirement for a Roadmapping solution to support the management of product portfolios,” says Endress+Hauser’s Director of Technology, Dr. Peter Selders. “Our use of traditional office tools for our Roadmapping activities was creating roadmaps based on a disconnected view of our data, processes and workflows; this did not allow for efficient collaboration in this age of digitalization.”

With the launch of Sopheon’s Accolade® software to support connected, strategic views of R&D projects, the overall product portfolio and forward-looking innovation plans, Endress+Hauser looks to enhance alignment of innovation execution with business strategy. Ultimately, based on collaborative roadmaps, visualizing the true innovation and product portfolios, the organization will be able to prioritize their investments in a better and more transparent way. Eventually this will result in more efficient product management and development.

Dr. Selders explains, “With Accolade, transparency allows for better visibility from the early phases of the development pipeline to alignment with corporate strategy, not only for our executives but also for the product managers and developers within their areas of responsibility. On top of that, we have increased the efficiency in our annual review process with one single source of data.”

Florian Palatini, Expert Innovation Management at Endress+Hauser, elaborates on the benefits even further: “Accolade brings Roadmapping to the next level, and thanks to this, the complexity is much more manageable. We have better visibility of inter-dependencies, effects and relationships.”

The decision to partner with Sopheon was taken after a detailed analysis of solutions on the market. “Of course, Accolade ticked the box on all of our functionality wish-list items, but more importantly, Sopheon set itself apart with the promise of best-practice content embedded in its software to guide us in defining our new processes, and its knowledgeable and highly responsive team. We are looking forward to reaping the rewards of using Accolade at Endress+Hauser,” concludes Dr. Selders.

Sopheon partners with customers to provide complete Enterprise Innovation Performance solutions including patented software, expertise and best practices to achieve exceptional long-term revenue growth and profitability. Sopheon’s Accolade solution provides unique, fully-integrated coverage for the entire innovation management and new product development lifecycle, including strategic innovation planning, roadmapping, idea and concept development, process and project management, portfolio management and resource planning. Sopheon’s solutions have been implemented by over 250 customers with more than 60,000 users in over 50 countries. Sopheon is listed on the AIM Market of the London Stock Exchange.

How to Fix the Problem of so Few Women in STEM (Part II)

Girls in STEM

Girls in STEM

What can be done to influence young women to achieve success in STEM careers. Read how they can pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and math.

Too often, it seems that young women and girls learn about the exciting careers of men and less about women who have equally prominent positions.”

— Formaspace

AUSTIN, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, December 4, 2018 / — Here in part two of our series, “Why Do Women Hold Just 24% of STEM Jobs in the USA?” we take a look at how to encourage young women and girls to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and math.

The need for change is great.

At a time when an increasing number of baby boomer workers are retiring, employers are facing a major shortage of talented, high-tech STEM workers, it makes no sense for half of the potential candidates, e.g., women, to feel excluded or unwelcome from these interesting, well-paid careers.

What can be done to influence young woman and girls to achieve success in STEM careers?

Here are five practical suggestions to act on — in your community, your school, and in the work environment:

1. Celebrate Role Models That Inspire Young Women To Achieve Success In STEM Careers

What inspires us to pursue an interesting and successful career, one that we feel passionate about?

Career choices come about as a result of many factors.

Sometimes, a chance coincidence will play a major role, while in other cases, the influence of a favorite teacher will inspire an academic career, or jobs traditionally held by family members will help determine a future career path.

But let’s not overlook the powerful influence of role models. Exposure to the stories of leading scientists, mathematicians, company presidents, and other prominent individuals can have a remarkable influence on young minds, inspiring them to pursue a career that they may not have considered before.

Too often, it seems that young women and girls learn about the exciting careers of men and less about women who have equally prominent positions.

Why not take the time to learn about the inspiring careers of some of the leading women in science and industry so that you can share these role models with young people? Here are some useful examples to add to your storytelling repertoire:

-Joy Adamson, Naturalist and Conservationist

International best-selling author Joy Adamson wrote the book “Born Free” about her experiences living in Kenya in the 1950s, where she rescued an orphaned lion cub named Elsa. The book and the 1966 film adaptation are inspirational works that can help young people learn about natural science, species preservation, and the importance of wildlife and the environment.

-Hedy Lamarr, Wireless Telecommunications Inventor and Hollywood Movie Star

Lauded for her beauty and captivating presence on the silver screen, Austrian immigrant Hedy Lamarr took Hollywood by storm in the 1930s. Yet the movie business and its superficial social scene bored Lamarr, who occupied her mind by reading technical journals, inventing new products, and consulting to Howard Hughes’ aviation business. During World War II, Lamarr invented a frequency hopping radio transmission scheme that evaded eavesdropping and jamming. The technique is still used in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth communication to this day. The 2017 film Bombshell tells the Lamarr story.

-Jennifer Doudna: Developer of CRISPR/Cas9

Jennifer Doudna, a molecular biology and chemistry professor at the University of California, Berkeley, has led the efforts to unlock the secrets of how to edit our DNA sequences, which is considered one of the most significant discoveries in the history of biology. The CRISPR/Cas9 gene edition technique holds the promise of preventing or curing diseases at the cellular level, ranging from cystic fibrosis and HIV to Huntington’s disease.

-Limor “Ladyada” Fried: Hacker & Engineer, Founder of AdaFruit

MIT engineering graduate Limor Fried founded the phenomenon known as AdaFruit in 2005. This woman-owned company looms large in the hacker and maker movement. Dubbed “LadyAda,” Fried hosts frequent video podcasts on the AdaFruit YouTube channel that teach young people how to create their own electronic projects and inventions. Fried’s unconventional, yet relatable style has inspired young women and girls to experiment with STEM-oriented projects by providing high-quality products, inspirational tutorials, and an unassailable joie de vivre.

2. Promote Participation In STEM Career Development Activities For Young Women And Girls
You can also help young women and girls become more aware of STEM career opportunities by creating or taking part in events designed to connect young people with technical careers.

Here are several annual events to provide inspiration:

Feb 4, 2018: Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day

As part of National Engineers Week, the new Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day program helps connect young women and girls with women working in the field of engineering. We also recommend reviewing Business Insider’s list of the 43 most powerful female engineers of 2017.

February 11, 2018: International Day of Women and Girls in Science 11 February

According to the United Nations, male students are 2 to 3 times more likely to earn a Bachelors, Masters, or Doctor’s degree in science-related fields. To increase awareness of this level of gender inequality, the United Nations declared the 11th of February as the annual International Day of Women and Girls in Science. To learn more about the importance of women in science roles, we also suggest checking this list of 91 famous women scientists.

April 26, 2018: Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Day

Originally founded in 1992 as Take Our Daughters to Work Day by the leaders of the Ms. Foundation for Women, this annual event expanded in 2003 to include boys as well. The idea is for boys and girls to learn about opportunities and explore careers at an age when they are more flexible in terms of their gender roles.

This is also an ideal day to teach young women and girls about successful women in industry leadership roles. Check out our article “Celebrating Leading Women in Industry” for information about leading female CEOs in the high-tech and manufacturing industries, including:

-Phebe Novakovic, CEO of General Dynamics
-Mary Barra, CEO of General Motors
-Renee James, former CEO of Intel
-Ginny Rometty, CEO of IBM

Oct 5, 2018: Manufacturing Day

As the manufacturing world accelerates into what some experts are calling the Fourth Industrial Revolution, it’s also facing a looming talent crisis. With more and more Baby Boomers retiring each month, there simply aren’t enough qualified candidates with the necessary STEM skills available to meet the demand. Today’s manufacturing careers require high levels of technical expertise in order to design, develop, manage today’s digitally-based production techniques, such as 3D printing and sensor-driven Internet of Things-based tools.

That’s why it’s more important than ever to recruit young women as well as men to this growing and rewarding sector.
