It reduces stress and facilitates a healthier and more comfortable night's sleep. </p> <p>The material also deters the propagation of dust mites common in traditional mattresses. Nearly three decades later, the bedding industry in India is widely using Visco-elastic foam in their mattresses.</p> <p>"These mattresses provide orthopaedic help to customers. They take the shape of the body but the impression created doesn't last," said Altaf, a mattress dealer. </p> <p><strong>About Visco-elastic foam</strong></p> <p>It was invented by NASA in the 1970s to reduce pressure points experienced by astronauts. Apparently, the gravitational forces generated when spaceship/shuttle took off were causing uncomfortable sensations for astronauts in their flight chairs. Therefore NASA needed something really gentle and the visco-elastic foam was able to provide the needed orthopedic support.</p> <p>The visco-elastic foam was later adapted by the hospital field for use in ER beds for immobile patients who experienced 'bed injuries' due to prolonged stay in static position.</p> <p>There after the material was sold to the general public and is being now used in luxurious items like furniture, chairs, shoes (as pads) mattresses and others. Competition has now intensified with different foam brands flooding the market.</p> <p>Arun LR, another company dealer, said, "We learnt about the technology from our partners in Australia and began using it about five years ago. Today, we manufacture the foam in India and it has helped sales go up by 10%-20 %."</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-imagecaption"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The mattresses made from Visco-elastic foam reduce stress and facilitates a healthier and more comfortable night's sleep. </p> </div> </div> </div> comfortable night's sleep India Manufacturing mattress NASA's visco-elastic foam Technology Top Story widely used in bedding industry Mon, 25 Nov 2013 06:28:15 +0000 Neka Sehgal 1701713724 at http://www.themoneytimes.com NMCC says boost manufacturing to reduce poverty http://www.themoneytimes.com/featured/20130927/nmcc-says-boost-manufacturing-reduce-poverty-id-1701713608.html <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The National Manufacturing Competitiveness Council (NMCC) said that to get rid of the major problem of getting rid of poverty can be dealt with only when the manufacturing output of the Indian Industrial sector increases and ensure continuous growth of the nation</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://www.themoneytimes.com/files/imagecache/picturethumb/NMCC_190.jpg" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-picturethumb imagecache-default imagecache-picturethumb_default" width="180" height="180" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>"Adopting Manufacturing Excellence as a national mission is the only way to get India rid of the vast poverty and to help it achieve all inclusive growth," NMCC Member Secretary Ajay Shankar said at a function organized by Confederation of Indian Industries.</p> <p>India ranked fourth in manufacturing competitiveness after the US, Germany and China, according to the Perception Analysis survey carried out by consultancy major Deloitte. </p> <p>India requires to construct a good amount of consensus amongst all stakeholders, including Central and state governments and agencies, institutions, NGOs, industry bodies and the society, as a whole to make India a world leader in manufacturing.</p> <p>"We have the capacity to emerge as the second best destination for manufacturing in the world in terms of its strength in design and technology, resource base, rich pool of young talented people and entrepreneurial spirit by 2020," Shankar said.</p> <p>Strong focus should be placed on innovation to increase productivity, quality and cost effectiveness is critical for the country's manufacturing sector to survive, grow and compete globally and improve the worsening current account deficit.</p> <p>The same issue of increasing of manufacturing to reduce poverty among other relevant issues have been taken up by the NMCC previously, as NMCC stated in July 2013, "If you do not embrace innovation in manufacturing, increasing share of the sector in the country's GDP and creation of jobs will not be possible.</p> <p>The NMCC was set up in 2006 with a Rs 956 crore budget by the central government.

A decade ago, that would have seemed laughable.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Yet that’s exactly what has happened; and it’s not just Saudi Arabia that has been left in North America’s dust -- Russia has, too.</p> <p>The surge in North American oil and gas production is arguably the most important development in energy over the last decade. That’s the good news. The not so good news is that North America doesn’t have nearly enough oil and gas pipelines to accommodate its 11-million-barrel-a-day output level.</p> <p>The famously unresolved proposed Keystone XL pipeline would carry oil from Canada to the U.S. Gulf Coast, but its future is in legal and political limbo. The controversial Northern Gateway pipeline, proposed as an alternative to Keystone XL, would connect Canada’s oil sands to the Pacific Coast, allowing greater volumes of oil to be shipped to Asia, but it, too, is still on the drawing board.</p> <p>Both are good examples of how pipelines – considered the safest way to move oil and gas – have become politicized and scrutinized, and not without reason. Despite their reliability, pipelines still lead to an unacceptable rate of safety mishaps. They corrode and rupture, which threatens workers and nearby communities. In 2013 alone, over 119,000 barrels of oil were spilled in 623 incidents.</p> <p>America’s existing pipelines are getting older and more prone to corrosion, and over the next five to 10 years, there will be a significant increase in the number of new pipelines.</p> <p>And that is creating a huge opportunity for better pipeline safety technology.</p> <p>Monitoring and detecting corrosion in pipelines is still a crude affair (no pun intended). Pipeline companies tend to underspend on safety, concerned only with meeting the minimum regulatory requirements.</p> <p>One of the major ways pipeline operators detect corrosion is with a “pig,” a machine that travels down the inside of a pipeline looking for problems.</p> <p>Pigs are not new -- the industry has long relied heavily on them—and the newest generation of pigs, known as “smart pigs,” is considered an improvement over the pigs of yesterday. Smart pigs give a read on the state of the pipeline, such as cracks, corrosion, and metal loss. Operators receive this information in a control room and can then dispatch crews to fix the problem. As of 2012, 93 percent of pipeline inspections were conducted using smart pigs.</p> <p>But smart pigs might not be enough. Enbridge (NYSE: ENB), a major Canadian pipeline company, has spent over $4.4 billion to upgrade pipeline safety. It is spending big bucks after one of its pipelines spilled oil into the Kalamazoo River in 2010 – a corrosion breach that Enbridge’s smart pigs failed to detect ahead of time.</p> <p>And that’s the problem: despite recent advances, smart pigs aren’t terribly accurate. They also require pipeline operations to shut down (you can’t pump oil through a pipeline if there is a machine in the way), and analyzing the data smart pigs gather can take some time. The Wall Street Journal ran an article last year that talked about the pitfalls of smart pigs, even as pipeline companies continue to depend heavily on them.</p> <p>So alternative methods to detect trouble spots are needed. One method for detecting corrosion uses a device from outside the pipeline. A series of sensors placed on the outside of the pipeline can search for corrosion without interfering in operations.</p> <p>Pipeline safety company Fox-Tek, a subsidiary of Augusta Industries (CVE: AAO), uses such a system to detect corrosion, as well as a fiber optic system to detect bends, strains and stress in pipelines.</p> <p>But the real innovation in Fox-Tek’s system is its data analytics package. Companies that use smart pigs usually need to spend months doing post-inspection analysis, but Fox-Tek has developed proprietary software that does continuous and automatic analysis.</p> <p>Fox-Tek’s sensors gather information and automatically send back confidential reports on everything the company needs to know – temperature, pressure, strain, rates of corrosion, etc. in the form of handy graphs, charts and diagrams. It eliminates the need for an army of people to go out and inspect pipelines and then come back to do the analysis.</p> <p>The pipeline safety market is massive and growing, but one of the major hurdles for new technologies like advanced sensors and software will be reluctance by pipeline companies to proactively invest in corrosion management and maintenance. In the past, they have largely focused on the bare minimum and viewed safety as a regulatory requirement.</p> <p>However, there seems to be a sea change in the pipeline industry, particularly since operators are running into an environmental backlash. The blocking of several high-profile pipelines may have finally gotten the attention of the industry. Bringing local communities onboard and acquiring permits from regulators will require pipeline operators to demonstrate improved safety throughout their networks.</p> <p>But above all, pipeline companies will see dollars saved by using cost-effective monitoring systems to reduce pipeline leaks. Enbridge has been forced to spend around $1 billion to clean up its mess in the Kalamazoo River, which was the result of a corrosion breach. It could spend a fraction of that to have better information on pipeline corrosion to prevent a growing problem from getting worse. That could reduce the frequency of future pipeline spills.</p> <p>This could be a game changer in terms of how oil and gas pipelines are viewed in North America. If operators use smart software to catch small problems before they can turn into big ones, the common view of pipelines as accidents waiting to happen could be erased. Instead of seeing them as an environmental risk, the public may grow to see them as just another piece of modern infrastructure that facilitates commerce.</p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://www.themoneytimes.com/files/imagecache/picturethumb/oil%20pipelines.jpeg" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-picturethumb imagecache-default imagecache-picturethumb_default" width="180" height="142" /> </div> </div> </div> Energy Manufacturing Markets Middle east North America oil pipelines Russia Saudi Arabia The Money Times newsletter Fri, 29 Aug 2014 09:14:11 +0000 James Stafford 1701713911 at http://www.themoneytimes.com Now, charge your phone while you groove with headphones! http://www.themoneytimes.com/featured/20130711/now-charge-your-phone-while-you-groove-headphones-id-1701713323.html <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Want to charge your phone while you listen to music?

He hopes to have them on sale by early 2014. </p> <p>Anderson said, "It's really simple - you would think it had already been done. You can buy <a href="http://www.themoneytimes.com/node/62989">solar chargers for phones</a> but the thing is it's like you're carrying two phones around."</p> <p><strong>Features</strong><br /> The OnBeat headphones have a flexible solar panel embedded around the band where it’ll be exposed to ample energy from rays from the sun. The panel then charges a pair of lightweight lithium ion batteries located inside the ear cups. There’s a USB port on one of the cups that will use the stored up energy to keep the smartphone or tablet topped up when you are on the go.</p> <p>As per the OnBeat’s creators, the solar cell has a surface area of 55cm3 with a charge capacity of approximately 0.55W. Though no sample charging data is available yet, the designers claim that the headphones can keep your device juiced up all day.</p> <p>The headphones have a 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency range and a sensitivity of 100 dB (±3 dB) and the overall weight will be in the region of 300 to 500 g (10-18 oz).</p> <p>Anderson stated on the Kickstarter, “We have been working hard for the last year to develop a set of headphones that not only provides excellent sound quality, but simultaneously re-charges your mobile devices on the go. </p> <p>"The integration of rechargeable batteries and a full headband solar panel means that wherever you go you will be able to keep your devices running all day."</p> <p><strong>£200,000 OnBeat project</strong><br /> OnBeat’s creators are seeking funds to pay for a initial production run in order to hit their manufacturer’s minimum order. In other words they are looking to raise £200,000 ($298,000) to fund the project and get their solar headphones off the ground. Anderson hopes to sell the headphones for around £119.00 per pair when they hit shelves in February next.</p> <p>Anderson stated, “From the offset we not only wanted to develop a product to keep your devices going all day, but a product that would give you a superb sound from low range for bass, mid-range for precision DJ'ing and high range for vocal and acoustic excellence.
