Surfaces 2018 Review: At this year’s show, branding and marketing shared center stage

This year’s show, held in Las Vegas from January 30 to February 1, was busy, colorful and enthusiastic. Attendee traffic was strong, exhibitor bookings were up 5% and manufacturers put their best foot forward, investing not just in product but also in new brands, booth design, unique merchandising units and dramatic displays on booth floors and walls. The massive L-shaped 450,000-square-foot exhibit space-featuring Surfaces, TileExpo and StonExpo/Marmomac under the umbrella of TISE (The International Surface Event)-was so crammed with people and product that a shortcut across the outside parking lot turned into a pedestrian highway. It didn’t help that the middle third of the exhibit hall was focused on stone processing machinery, essentially cutting the flooring show in two. The Las Vegas Market, showing product including area rugs at the World Market Center at the other end of the Strip, ran more or less concurrently with Surfaces. For the first two days of Surfaces, shuttles, free with a TISE badge, ferried attendees between the shows. But many attendees reported that they just didn’t have enough time to travel across town. The downside for Surfaces is that there’s not much t...

The best gaming monitor 2020: Digital Foundry’s picks for PC, PS4 and Xbox • Eurogamer.net

Choosing the right gaming monitor can be tricky. While some peripherals like mice, gamepads and keyboards are mostly matters of personal preference, some gaming monitors are just objectively better than others, offering higher resolutions, faster refresh rates or more accurate colours. Monitors can also last a long time – often five years or more – and you’ll probably use them every day, whether you’re playing games or trying to get some work done. That makes it important to choose the right monitor, but the options for brands, specs and features can be overwhelming. That’s why we are keeping it simple, to give you the gaming monitor recommendations you need with the bare minimum of jargon. Read the guide below to get started, or scroll on to our best gaming monitor 2020 recommendations.

IPP REVIEW–Asia-Pac’s Top Security Meetings: The Xiangshan Forum and the Shangri-La Dialogue

Home  →    →  Asia-Pac’s Top Security Meetings: The Xiangshan Forum and the Shangri-La Dialogue The Xiangshan Forum and the Shangri-La Dialogue are two of the most important security dialogues regionally and possibly globally. It is therefore no wonder that they attract a lot of attention from the media, analysts, policy makers and other stakeholders. The Xiangshan Forum was inaugurated in 2006 and it became a Track 1.5 event in 2015. In that year, Petko Draganov, Head of the United Nations (UN) Regional Center for Preventive Diplomacy for Central Asia spoke on behalf of the UN Secretary-General and delivered his message to the Xiangshan Forum. He highlighted the situation of the Korean Peninsula tensions as a major issue in the East Asian region and urged Xiangshan Forum stakeholders to bring that into focus during their discussions. Coincidentally, this issue has become a major focus in 2018 at regional meetings in Asia. It was discussed at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics 2018, the 32nd ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) Summit, the China-Japan-South Korea Trilateral summit in Tokyo, both Moon-Kim summits, the 17th Shangri-La Dialogue, and the highly anticipated up...

How the fiber laser changed the rules of metal fabrication The FABRICATOR STAMPING Journal The Welder The Tube and Pipe Journal The FABRICATOR en Español The Additive Report The FABRICATOR The Welder The Tube and Pipe Journal STAMPING Journal The Additive Report The FABRICATOR en Español

Laser cutting aluminum has never been a cakewalk, considering the material’s high thermal conductivity and optical reflectivity. But in many ways, the fiber laser has changed the game. Getty Images The fiber laser changed the laser cutting game, not just for its speed but for its wavelength. The CO2 laser beam’s 10.6-micron wavelength had decades of success since the birth of the laser cutting industry, but when it came to nonferrous material, optical reflectivity reared its ugly head. This complicated laser cutting nonferrous material in a big way. Copper and brass cutting with a CO2 laser was (and still is) rare, though some tenacious fabricators accomplished the feat. Cutting aluminum with a CO2 laser is of course quite common. But the CO2’s 10.6-micron wavelength still isn’t ideal, so the process remains a little like squeezing a small round peg in a larger square hole. It’s not impossible; the peg still fits through the hole, but securing it takes some effort. Then at the beginning of this century, the fiber laser stepped into the fray with its 1-micron wavelength. Most common metals in the fab shop absorb more and reflect less of that 1-micron wavelength than the 10.6-mic...

Toyota adds 361K vehicles to Takata air bag inflator recall

DETROIT (AP) — Toyota is recalling 361,000 more vehicles worldwide to replace Takata air bag inflators that could explode and hurl shrapnel. The vehicles date to 1997 and have older inflators that are different from Takata products that use volatile ammonium nitrate to fill air bags in a crash. Those are the devices that led to numerous deaths. But the inflators in this recall can also explode with too much force and spew metal fragments that can endanger people. The recall covers gas and electric versions of the RAV4 SUV and the Celica sports car from 1997 to 1999. Also included are the 1997 through 1998 Supra sports car. Toyota will notify owners by mail starting in mid-March. The company doesn’t have a fix yet but will tell owners when one is ready. Copyright © 2020 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
