Efficiency, Speed Make Kencoa Aerospace Machining Top Notch

Advanced Manufacturing Media is a leading source for news and in-depth technical information about advanced manufacturing in North America. When Kencoa Aerospace began its operations 20 years ago, it was a small company focused on defense applications. But, according to Troy Boston, engineering manager for the company’s U.S.-based operations, the company also progressed into commercial aerospace over the last six years and considers itself very diverse in terms of the parts it can machine for well-known clients, such as Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Gulf Stream. While headquartered globally in Korea, the U.S.-based aerospace operation is a Tier-1 supplier of multiaxis precision machined aerostructures, jet engine components, and major assemblies of commercial, military and regional business jets. “We machine anything from plastics, stainless steel, titanium, all the way up to Inconel,” Boston said. He explained that the part sizes the firm creates can range from the size of a quarter to 20-feet long. The majority of these parts are internal structural components for aircraft and can range anywhere from wing components to cargo floor skins. To create the parts needed for these defe...

Impact of the Arterial Input Function Recording Method on Kinetic Parameters in Small-Animal PET

The goal of this study was to validate the use of an MR-compatible blood sampler (BS) with a detector system based on a lutetium oxyorthosilicate scintillator and avalanche photodiodes for small-animal PET. Methods: Five rats underwent a 60-min 18F-FDG study. For each animal, the arterial input function (AIF) was derived from the BS recording, from manual sampling (MS), and from the PET image. These AIFs were applied for kinetic modeling of the striatum using the irreversible 2-tissue-compartment model. The MS-based technique with a dispersion correction served as a reference approach, and the kinetic parameters that were estimated with the BS- and the image-derived AIFs were compared with the reference values. Additionally, the effect of applying a population-based activity ratio for plasma to whole blood (p/wb) and the dispersion correction was assessed. Results: The K1, k2, and k3 values estimated with the reference approach were 0.174 ± 0.037 mL/min/cm3, 0.342 ± 0.080 1/min, and 0.048 ± 0.009 1/min, respectively. The corresponding parameters obtained with the BS- and image-derived AIFs deviated from these values by 0.6%–18.8% and 16.7%–47.9%, respectively. To compensate for ...

Scammer targets good Samaritans helping Camp Fire survivors

MAGALIA, Calif. — Michael Krzanich and his wife, Lara, have lived in Magalia for about two years. In that time, they have become endeared to the community. That bond became stronger after the Camp Fire decimated any notion of normalcy for those impacted by it in Butte County. Krzanich, 63, told ABC10 they lost everything. The house he and Lara were renting burned to the ground. He estimates the value of just the equipment he had, Krzanich was an electrical contractor in the Bay Area before they moved to Magalia, to be worth a quarter of a million dollars. Through it all, both he and Lara still call Magalia home. In mid-April 2019, they decided they wanted to help other families impacted by the Camp Fire to try and get some of the things they lost back. Krzanich and Lara reached out to the community on the Facebook group “Rebuilding hope: Campfire Recovery Resources,” asking if anyone needed help searching for any precious mementos. Using metal detecting equipment, Krzanich estimated he and Lara have helped sift through the rubble of about 40 homes. But, Krzanich said, they needed a special metal detector to improve the odds of finding things. The detector he said he ...

An important consideration for anyone cutting the cord is having a stable connection to the internet

An important consideration for anyone cutting the cord is having a stable connection to the internet on all your TVs and devices. People tend to utilize WiFi for most of their devices so making sure a home network has good Wifi coverage is crucial. Unfortunately, WiFi is subject to interference and can make it difficult to have good WiFi coverage This article will explain how to set up WiFi access points on each floor and have a stable connection between them and your main router using Ethernet. I’ll go into detail on router placement, the basic configuration of devices, how to connect them via Ethernet, and even how to run an Ethernet connection between floors through the walls in your home. Unfortunately, many Internet providers bring the signal into the lowest point of your home. That means it’s on the first floor or worse, the basement. As we’ve said before, you want to place a strong signaled WiFi access point higher in the home because WiFi Signals propagate out and down. Internet access entering through the basement can cause many headaches when it comes to your network. If your Internet access is from a cable TV provider, you don’t want many splitters degrading the signa...

Trade war tariffs: These Chinese-made products could soon cost more

President Trump announced new tariffs on Chinese imports Friday after Beijing said it’d retaliate against Trump’s latest duties with its own tariffs This conversation is moderated according to USA TODAY’s community rules. Please read the rules before joining the discussion. Correction: A previous version of this video incorrectly stated when tariffs would impact pet toys. Tariffs will impact these items in December. USA TODAY Soon, it may be hard to find a Chinese-made product on a store shelf that doesn’t have a higher price tag because of new U.S. tariffs. President Donald Trump announced double-barreled new tariffs on Chinese imports Friday after Beijing said it would retaliate against Trump’s latest duties with its own tariffs on $75 billion in U.S. products. On Sept. 1, a tariff on some of the $300 billion in Chinese imports that was slated to be 10% instead will be 15%, Trump said. It will hit items such as school supplies, sporting goods and some clothing.   A tariff on the rest of the $300 billion – which targets other consumer products such as cellphones, apparel and footwear – has been delayed until Dec. 15, but those too will now be slap...

Here’s something you probably didn’t know: the construction business accounts for an estimated 23 percent of

Here’s something you probably didn’t know: the construction business accounts for an estimated 23 percent of the world’s carbon-dioxide emissions—5.7 billion tons, according to the most recent estimates. Much of this comes from the use of concrete and steel, the two biggest contributors to emissions in the building sector. As the BBC has reported, if the concrete industry were a country, it would be the third-largest emissions producer, behind China and the United States. And there’s no end in sight: the United Nations Environment Program predicts that humans will put up the equivalent of a new Paris every week for the next 40 years. In the U.S., an architectural publication predicted that some 1.9 billion square feet of new structures will be built in the next three decades.  If only there was a sturdy and renewable building material—one that could actually help curb climate change while giving us more calming and aesthetically pleasing spaces in which to live, work, and play.  Such a miracle substance exists, of course. It’s wood. As you are no doubt aware, trees absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen back into the atmosphere during photosynthesis. The carbon is sequestered ...
