Nel padiglione 6, Stand T 14 all’interno del MIDO Eyewear Show 2019 presso la fiera di Rho (MI) dal 23 al 25 febbraio Sirius Electric si servirà dei nuovi video industriali per mostrare le proprie saldatrici a vibrazione  pensate per la saldatura di basette in acetato, senza l’ausilio di collante.

Sirius Electric progetta e realizza impianti di saldatura all’interno del plant a Vigevano, alle porte di Milano.

Sono 4 le tecnologie sviluppate e mostrate all’interno dei video industriali: a ultrasuoni, a vibrazione, a rotofrizione e a lama calda. Ognuna con caratteristiche, vantaggi e finalità diverse

Ogni volta in cui si renda necessario assemblare oggetti in plastica, Sirius Electric analizza il progetto e gli obiettivi del cliente. Valutando prima di tutto il materiale, poi la geometria del modello e infine la produttività che ci si aspetta dall’investimento.

La vendita di macchine per saldare, integrata con la condivisione di know how coi propri interlocutori, rende unico ogni progetto di saldatura: gli ingegneri partono dall’idea del cliente, per arrivare alla progettazione dei giunti di saldatura e alla scelta della migliore tecnologia da seguire.

Solo allora vengono progettati e realizzati la saldatrice o gli accessori.

L’assemblaggio di pezzi in materiale termoplastico può avvenire con sistemi molto diversi: sono circa 14 le tecnologie possibili. Sirius Electric, nel corso di 30 anni di attività, ha messo a punto 4 differenti sistemi.

La saldatura ad ultrasuoni, manuale o pneumatica, ha grandi  vantaggi: è estremamente rapida, non danneggia il materiale, elimina viti e incollaggio ma richiede materiali rigidi in forme non complesse, per garantire una costante propagazione dell’energia all’interno del pezzo. E’ particolarmente adatta nei settori dell’automotive, dell’elettronica, del medicale e nell’imballaggio.

La saldatura a vibrazione permette di unire tra loro la quasi totalità dei materiali termoplastici, di medie e grandi dimensioni.
Ma è particolarmente critica la fase di posizionamento degli elementi;  richiede un tempo importante e una elevata rigidità delle parti, per poter trasferire con successo l’energia.

La saldatura a rotofrizione è la più flessibile perché ripetibile, economica, adatta alla maggior parte delle materie plastiche, ma presenta vincoli importanti sulla geometria dei pezzi

La saldatura a lama calda è semplice, economica, ripetibile anche su pezzi di grandi dimensioni. Però non è adatta per piccoli elementi e presenta dei tempi di ciclo più elevati.

E’ evidente come la scelta della tecnologia da seguire in funzione del risultato da ottenere sia il punti critico; in questa fase l’esperienza di Sirius Electric diventa determinante: non solo saldatrici, ma come usarle dopo averle progettate e costruite

Pensa con la tua testa e scopri “La verità sulla marijuana” Wed, 20 Feb 2019 16:00:46 +0100 http://comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/manifestazioni/526360.html http://comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/manifestazioni/526360.html BIZCOMIT.IT BIZCOMIT.IT Il problema riguardo alle droghe purtroppo è molto attuale e colpisce anche i più giovani che sperimentano senza esserne veramente informati e senza stimare i rischi a cui andranno incontro.

Riferendosi all’impatto devastante della droga sulla società, l’autore, umanitario L. Ron Hubbard, ha scritto: “Il pianeta si è scontrato con una barriera che impedisce un progresso sociale su vasta scala: droga, farmaci e le altre sostanze biochimiche. Queste possono ridurre le persone in condizioni che non solo sono proibitive e distruttive per la salute, ma che sono tali da impedire ogni progresso stabile verso il benessere mentale o spirituale”. Questa affermazione porta alla sua successiva valutazione sul ruolo che l’uso di droga gioca nella disgregazione del tessuto sociale: “la ricerca dimostra che le droghe sono l’elemento più distruttivo nella nostra cultura attuale”.

Ed ecco dei fatti in merito alla droga come la marijuana, di cui si parla come “droga leggera”: alcuni ricercatori hanno osservato che somministrando questa sostanza su alcuni animali hanno sofferto di danni strutturali al cervello.

Possiamo fare un paragone fra alcol che contiene una sola sostanza: l’etanolo e la marijuana che contiene più di 400 sostanze tossiche note e sostanze chimiche cancerogene, tra le quali le stesse sostanze che causano tumori e che si possono trovare nel fumo di tabacco.

A differenza dei fumatori di sigarette, quelli che fumano marijuana tendono ad inalare profondamente ed a mantenere il fumo quanto più a lungo possibile per aumentare l’effetto della droga, peggiorando il danno ai polmoni.

La marijuana o hashish è un’ allucinogeno, sostanza che distorce il mondo in cui la mente percepisce il mondo in cui vivi.

La sostanza chimica nell’hashish che crea questa distorsione è nota come “THC” che rimane nei tessuti adiposi per mesi e forse più a lungo, a seconda della costanza e dell’intensità dell’uso; inoltre il THC danneggia il sistema immunitario.

Una delle testimonianze dice: “ho fumato il mio primo spinello nel cortile della scuola. Ora sono un’eroinomane e ho appena finito il mio ottavo trattamento contro la tossicodipendenza.”

Cashfree has Built Modern Mobile Payment App With Local Shoppers in Mind

  [20-February-2019]  

GHENT, Belgium, Feb. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Cashfree is a mobile payment app that aims to simplifiy the lives of everyone in the local community, eliminating the burden of carrying cash, slow payments and the hassle of dealing with third party service providers and card terminals.

Cashfree's simple QR code payment solution is an example of a flexible, innovative company offering an alternative to the big players who dominate the market today. Cashfree reduces financial risk for merchants and consumers and removes the need for middlemen for a simple transaction. Merchants will be able to accept payments directly from the consumers' bank account, meaning the cost per transaction is significantly reduced. This will result in more pricing power for local stores that are too small to bargain for lower payment fees with the likes of Visa and Mastercard, maximizing the value kept within local communities.

Peter Op de Beeck, CEO and founder of Cashfree, boasts over 20 years of experience in Fintech, software development, and payments, with an M.Sc. in electronics and an MBA from Instead, as well as a degree from Harvard. Behind him are an experienced team of entrepreneurs who share in his vision to provide a brand new service that combines all the major features of current mobile payment app solutions and adds a whole new layer of convenience on top.

300 merchants and 4000+ shoppers are currently using the Cashfree service in Ghent and with over €2 million in funding secured, Cashfree is ready to expand and compete with larger service providers around the world. A license has been obtained from the National Bank of Belgium making Cashfree a European payment institute (in all SEPA-countries), so the first steps are underway. There are also notable partnerships in the pipeline with one of the top 3 legal firms in the world as well as Anti Money Laundering experts Microblink, already signed up.

What Makes Cashfree Different

a.  Sign up in less than 2 minutes

The Cashfree registration and onboarding process is done entirely in the mobile app. In less than 2 minutes, a new user can make their first payment by simply scanning the QR code on the merchants app. What's more, they can manage all their accounts in the same place.

b.  Instant Payment, No Recurring Fees and No Middlemen

All payments are sent directly from the user's bank account or crypto wallets to the merchant's bank account. Merchants benefit from fees up to 10 times lower than standard card payments, leaving more value in the local community.

c.  Shop Locally

Cashfree allows users to pay securely and instantly when shopping at local small businesses. Cashfree payments can be done in any retail setting, in e-commerce stores, or among friends. All payments are sent directly from account to account.

d.  Crypto Integration

As a mobile payment challenger, Cashfree integrates crypto payments for local shoppers, with the merchant receiving the payment in local currency.

About Cashfree

Cashfree have created a bank-independent mobile payment app that allows users to pay securely and instantly when shopping at local small businesses. All payments are sent directly from the user's bank account or crypto wallets to the merchant's bank account, with the consumer simply scanning a QR code to complete the transaction. With the need for costly middlemen removed, merchants benefit from fees that are up to 10 times lower than for card payments - leaving more value in the local community.  Cashfree maintains all the features of other modern banking apps, adding a whole new layer of convenience on top.

PRN: University College Cork Partners with Canvas to Deliver its New Strategic Vision Wed, 20 Feb 2019 12:35:51 +0100 http://comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/526380.html http://comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/526380.html PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

University College Cork Partners with Canvas to Deliver its New Strategic Vision

  [20-February-2019]  

LONDON, Feb. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Canvas by Instructure (NYSE:INST) has announced that it has been selected by University College Cork to provide an institution-wide virtual learning environment (VLE), helping drive its connected university strategy.

Canvas by Instructure

University College Cork (UCC) launched its new Academic Strategy in December, the first academic plan put in place by the institution. UCC is looking to Canvas to help facilitate the shift and support the delivery of a student-centred teaching and learning experience with a renewed, responsive and research-led curriculum at its core.

Canvas will become the main online platform to support teaching and learning at UCC, giving academic staff the tools to teach the university's 17,580 full-time students in innovative ways, and offering the flexibility to deliver a Connected Curriculum.

The process leading up to partnering with Canvas was rigorous, with UCC running extensive pilots, testing and trialling functions over the last two years and garnering the views of students and staff.

In finally choosing to adopt Canvas, the university's panel was completely unanimous on the purchase â€�“ the first time in UCC's history that this had been the case. The university had previously used Blackboard as their VLE.

Professor John O'Halloran, Deputy President and Registrar at University College Cork, said: "Working with Canvas will help us fulfil our vision to prioritise teaching and learning by delivering an outstanding student-centred experience. As well as the intrinsic value to pedagogy, this move will allow us to realise our ambitions to attract more national and international students, deliver a research-led curriculum, attract and retain the most talented staff and to help our students become lifelong learners who continue to engage with our institution â€�“ from their first day at university to the last day of their careers."

Kenny Nicholl, General Manager, EMEA at Instructure, added, "We are delighted that University College Cork has chosen Canvas not just as its institution-wide VLE, but also as a partner working closely with them in delivering their new strategic vision. By being involved at the heart of the change that's going on at UCC, we will support the institution's drive to further differentiate itself, driven by student-centred pedagogy."

Tom O'Mara, Head of Digital Education at University College Cork, said: "The university was looking for far more than just a VLE that had the right functions and features. The people and services from Instructure, in conjunction with the Canvas platform, will aid our vision, and fit in with our culture. User experience is paramount so we tested this by asking suppliers to present certain scenarios to our panel as part of the tender. This ensured that we didn't just get a world-class platform with a proven track record, but also one that would be accessible by all our users and help drive improvements in adoption and delivery.

"Another big thing we look at and consider a lot at UCC is the notion of collaboration, community, sharing and learning from each other. This is why the Canvas community was a big draw as well. Too much siloing happens in education. But we can use tech to facilitate the sharing of content and good practice â€�“ for collaboration not just between staff, or students, but also with other institutions."

PRN: Combined SMS and Email Campaigns Earn 38% More Revenue Than Email-only Campaigns During Valentine's Day Promotions - Omnisend Research Wed, 20 Feb 2019 12:33:30 +0100 http://comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/526378.html http://comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/526378.html PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

Combined SMS and Email Campaigns Earn 38% More Revenue Than Email-only Campaigns During Valentine's Day Promotions - Omnisend Research

  [20-February-2019]  

According to the latest research announced by Omnisend, orders coming from email campaigns fell by 12.9% on Valentine's day compared to 2018, while campaigns with SMS and email combined enjoyed more orders around this shopping event.

LONDON, Feb. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Omnisend, omnichannel marketing automation platform for ecommerce, has released the latest data on Valentine's day campaigns sent during the week of the amorous shopping holiday.

Key marketers studied during the week of Valentine's day sent twice as many campaigns than a normal business day. Surprisingly, there was a decrease of orders coming from campaigns using only email during the holiday.

Many ecommerce marketers take advantage of Valentine's day for last-minute gifts and customer appreciation campaigns. This is no doubt fueled by the success of 2018, where marketers experienced a peak of orders between the 13th and the 15th of February.

Despite this success, email-exclusive campaigns in 2019 did not live up to 2018 expectations, earning 12.9% less revenue during the three day period.

However, email campaigns sent alongside SMS campaigns were much more successful for retailers. In conjunction with the fall in email revenue during this week, campaigns combining SMS and email experienced 38% more revenue than in 2018.

While this trend shows that consumers were less willing to spend on promotions coming from email channels, deploying SMS campaigns is proving to be even more effective. With many consumers shopping more frequently via mobile, SMS messages are more likely to reach the customer in a shorter amount of time. This immediacy is not often achieved with email marketing.

Omnisend CEO Rytis Lauris offered insight behind the data, stating: "This data shows that marketers should not rely on one channel for holiday and event promotion, as many who did not send SMS campaigns during this week saw a decrease in revenue. Adding more channels into promotions, like SMS, diversifies marketing efforts, leading to better revenue opportunities for online sellers."

About Omnisend: Omnisend is an ecommerce marketing automation suite that empowers marketers of digital commerce with omnichannel marketing features. Leveraging email marketing automation and several channel integrations, Omnisend integrates easily with ecommerce stores. Omnisend is top-rated app in Shopify app store, and also listed in G2Crowd's selection of the Top 50 Products for Marketers 2019.

Next Generation of Inflight Connectivity Ever Closer as Seamless Air Alliance Announces Major Progress

  [20-February-2019]  

BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Next week at Mobile World Congress, the Seamless Air Alliance will reveal progress on its mission toward enabling the next generation of inflight connectivity. This follows a significant start for the Alliance, which has seen membership increase five-fold since the first meeting in June of last year. The Alliance has a new research laboratory setup and continues progress through its three working groups, writing specifications for the technology, requirements, and operations.

Seamless Air Alliance logo

These developments represent a huge leap towards the goal of making connectivity as easy and enjoyable in the skies as it is on the ground. Appearing as part of the Airbus stand (Hall 6, stand 6G34), the Seamless Air Alliance will reveal specification topics that have been completed and published to its membership.

"The passenger experience with inflight connectivity remains one of the great technology challenges. From Day One we have been determined to deliver on our mission to bring industries and technologies together to make the inflight internet experience simple to access and a delight to use," said the Alliance's Chief Executive Officer, Jack Mandala.

"I have been tremendously encouraged by the enthusiastic and committed response we have seen and the widening areas of expertise we can call upon as more and more companies and organisations continue to join us," he added.

Announced during MWC 2018, the Seamless Air Alliance has since grown to twenty-three member companies with more than one-hundred key personnel from across the membership participating in its three working groups, with numbers continuing to increase.

The Seamless Air Alliance was created by founding members Airbus, Airtel, Delta Air Lines, OneWeb and Sprint, and quickly joined by Air France KLM, Aeromexico, and GOL Linhas Aereas Inteligentes and global technology leaders including Astronics, Collins Aerospace, Comtech, Cyient, iDirect, Inmarsat, Intelsat, Latecoere, Nokia, and Panasonic.

Today, the Alliance is pleased to announce five additional new members: Adaptive Channel, Etihad Airways, GlobalReach Technology, Safran, and SITAONAIR.

"We are extremely pleased to have these companies join and be a part of the companies driving the next generation of connectivity," said Mr. Mandala.

The Seamless Air Alliance will enable travelers boarding any flight, on any airline, anywhere in the world, to use their own devices to automatically connect to the Internet with no complicated login process nor paywall to scramble over.

The Alliance is also announcing the release of a new research study on the economic benefit of standardization on the inflight connectivity market at Mobile World Congress. This report is available for download at https://www.seamlessalliance.com/publications/

The Alliance is moving rapidly towards an expected demonstration of the technology later in 2019 and anticipates massive interest in Barcelona from the whole communications eco-system.

PRN: Abbott Introduces the World's Most Sensitive Rapid Diagnostic Test, Determine™ HBsAg 2, to Accelerate Hepatitis B Care Wed, 20 Feb 2019 09:50:22 +0100 http://comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/526348.html http://comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/526348.html PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

Abbott Introduces the World's Most Sensitive Rapid Diagnostic Test, Determine™ HBsAg 2, to Accelerate Hepatitis B Care

  [20-February-2019]  

-   New point-of-care rapid test identifies and helps make effective care more accessible for millions of people living with hepatitis B, in support of World Health Organization (WHO) hepatitis targets

-   Life-changing test has obtained CE Mark and is now available in Europe, Africa, Asia, Latin America, and other countries that recognize CE Mark

ABBOTT PARK, Illinois, Feb. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Abbott (NYSE: ABT) announced today it has received CE Mark for the world's most sensitive rapid diagnostic test for the detection of hepatitis B surface antigen, the Determine™ HBsAg 2 test for use with serum, plasma or whole blood.1,2,3 This highly sensitive, easy-to-use, rapid lateral flow test enables identification of those with the virus and facilitates linkage to care in every healthcare setting.

Hepatitis B is a serious liver infection caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV). For some people, hepatitis B infection becomes chronic and can lead to liver failure, liver cancer or cirrhosis of the liver, a condition that permanently scars the liver.4

An estimated 257 million people worldwide were living with chronic HBV infection. While the global burden of this disease is significant, the rate of diagnosis is extremely low, at approximately 9 percent of all HBV-infected persons. Furthermore, among those diagnosed with HBV, only 8 percent actually received treatment.5

In a global effort to reduce the current burden of disease, the World Health Organization (WHO) has set baseline targets to diagnose 30 percent of HBV-infected individuals by 2020 and 90 percent by 2030.5 In order to reach these targets, rapid testing is imperative. Testing and diagnosis of HBV is the gateway for access to both prevention and treatment services and is a critical component of an effective response to the hepatitis epidemic.

"Because HBV is severely underdiagnosed, it is crucial to regularly screen people and efficiently link those who test positive to specialist care and where indicated, antiviral medication," said Patrick Kennedy, M.D., Reader and Consultant Hepatologist at Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry. "Early diagnosis may support timely viral suppression, which reduces the risk for HBV-related complications."

Early identification of people with chronic HBV allows them to receive the necessary care and treatment to prevent or delay progression of liver disease. Testing also provides an opportunity for interventions that reduce transmission, through counselling on risk behaviors and provision of prevention products, such as sterile needles, and on vaccination.

"To achieve the WHO targets, 107 million HBV-infected people need to be urgently diagnosed, especially in highly endemic regions in Africa and Asia," said Damian Halloran, vice president, Infectious Disease-Emerging Markets, Abbott. "The unparalleled sensitivity, portability and ease-of-use of the Determine HBsAg 2 provides life-changing technology that can dramatically scale up testing services so more infected people can know their status and get treatment earlier."

High sensitivity tests are important for certain populations, such as pregnant women, to reduce mother-to-child transmission, and for HIV-positive individuals, in which it may be difficult to detect HBV.1 Highly sensitivity tests such as the Determine HBsAg 2 allow people in these populations to be diagnosed quickly and accurately and linked to appropriate care.

ABOUT DETERMINE HBsAg 2
The Determine HBsAg 2 provides rapid and accurate results of one's HBV status with an analytical sensitivity of 0.1 IU/mL. The test is an in-vitro, visually read, qualitative immunoassay for the detection of HBsAg in serum, plasma or whole blood.

GODIVA Chocolatier, owned by Yildiz Holding, Enters into an Agreement to Sell Select Assets to MBK Partners to Fuel Future Business Growth Fivefold

  [20-February-2019]  

NEW YORK, Feb. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Transaction includes retail and distribution operations in four of GODIVA's 100 plus markets: Japan, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand, along with the production facility supplying these regions located in Brussels, Belgium
  • The transaction will produce cash flow and provides financial flexibility for more agile action in high growth areas globally including expansion into new product categories, acceleration of distribution in all channels, entry into new geographies, and the build out of 2000 cafés
  • GODIVA Chocolatier will retain brand ownership in all global markets granting a perpetual license to MBK Partners and continue to own and operate in the remaining 100 plus markets
  • GODIVA will continue to source products from the Belgian facility, which will now be o! wned by M BK Partners
  • Deal structure preserves Belgian origin and heritage while GODIVA continues to invest in the Belgian market and maintains its European headquarters, Center of Excellence for R&D, retail boutiques, CPG and Travel Retail in Brussels
GODIVA Café in Brussels, Belgium. The company plans to roll out 2,000 cafes globally as part of its 5X growth strategy.

GODIVA Chocolatier, owned by Yildiz Holding, today announced a transaction for the sale of select GODIVA assets to MBK Partners as part of a ! global st rategy to grow the business fivefold.  Under the terms of the transaction, MBK Partners will purchase the retail and distribution operations in four of GODIVA's 100 plus markets: Japan, South Korea, Australia and the future rights to develop New Zealand.  This includes Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG), digital-commerce, travel retail (for Japan and South Korea) and more than 300 retail stores.  The transaction also includes the GODIVA production facility in Brussels that supplies product to these markets. All remaining 100 plus markets will continue to be owned and operated by GODIVA. The terms of the deal were not disclosed. The agreement executed today has been approved by the Boards of Directors of both parties and the transaction is anticipated to close in mid-2019, subject t! o the cus tomary closing conditions of completion of standard Belgium employee works council consultations and expiry of the relevant competition authority waiting period.  

Post-close, GODIVA Chocolatier will retain exclusive brand ownership in all global markets granting a perpetual license to MBK Partners and will continue to own and operate the remaining markets in over 100 countries. GODIVA will continue to source its products from the Belgian facility together with the production facility it owns in PA, USA, and its affiliate facilities in Istanbul, Turkey.

"Since 2008 we have been very pleased with the performance of GODIVA, having nearly doubled its revenue and the number of stores operating globally, and continue to see tremendous upside for this brand moving forward," said Murat Ülker, Chairman of GODIVA and Yildiz Holding. "Realizing the potential ahead, together with GODIVA leadership, we conducted a strategic review to explore new ways for generating the necessary cash flow to fuel the robust growth. This transaction is an ideal solution that provides the momentum to fuel expansion in other high potential areas of our portfolio."

Annie Young-Scrivner, CEO of GODIVA Chocolatier added, "We believe this deal is a win-win for everyone. It gives us the financial flexibility we need to execute our 5x growth strategy by accelerating efforts in new and existing markets and supporting the plan of opening of more than 2,000 cafes globally while preserving our Belgian legacy, quality, and craftmanship that have helped to make our brand iconic."

"We received remarkable interest from a dozen blue chip investors, many of whom were actively engaged in the negotiation until the last rounds," said Nurtac Afridi, Head of Strategy and M&A in Yildiz Holding.  "We have long treasured the GODIVA brand and believe it represents significant upside for any investor. The know-how of the GODIVA team and its R&D excellence coupled with MBK Partners' expertise in these markets will deliver the next level of exponential growth and value creation for the brand."

Strategic Business Rationale

Among GODIVA's 100 plus markets, Japan, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand collectively have some of the strongest brand equity today and include more than 300 retail stores, making these regions the most compelling areas for monetization. In Japan, GODIVA has almost 90 percent aided brand awareness and is the number one retail brand in the country with the highest premium time spent in stores*.

At the same time, there is significant unrealized opportunity for the brand that, when coupled with the infusion of capital, infrastructure and capabilities from MBK Partners, is expected to deliver a strong return on investment. 

Continued Commitment to Belgium Operation and Heritage

The structure of the deal will ensure the preservation of GODIVA's Belgian legacy as it continues to invest in the Belgian market. GODIVA will maintain its European headquarters in Brussels, Belgium; it will continue to own and operate its Belgium retail stores, travel retail and CPG channels; and it will continue its Brussels-based Center of Excellence for R&D.   GODIVA will also maintain exclusive rights to its iconic recipes, continue the development of chef-inspired creations, and uphold its commitment to the Belgian craftmanship that defines its premium brand.  The factory in Brussels will continue to produce and export GODIVA products globally under the ownership of MBK Partners.  GODIVA will retain its prestigious Belgian Royal Warrant to supply goods to the royal court, an honor it has had for the last 50 years.
