Burlington Awarded $1.6 Million U.S. Marine Corps Physical Training Trunk Contract

GREENSBORO, N.C.  — August 15, 2019 — Burlington Industries LLC, a division of Elevate Textiles, announced today it has been awarded a $1.6 million contract to supply the U.S. Marine Corps with micro denier polyester fabrics for use in their physical training (PT) trunks. These fabrics will be produced at the company’s facilities in Cordova and Burlington, North Carolina. This lightweight woven 100% micro denier polyester fabric utilizes Burlington’s Moisture Control System® (MCS®) technology for advanced breathability and moisture management. MCS® technology increases the hydrophilic properties of fabric by allowing moisture to dissipate, transporting along the yarn faster. MCS® keeps the wearer dry and comfortable by absorbing moisture and moving it away from the skin as it evaporates off of the surface of the fabric. Burlington Labs®, Burlington’s in-house Research and Development incubator, engineers advanced fabrications and technical finishes that are applied to protect and enhance performance while providing troops advanced functionality in diverse environments. “We take pride in making fabric that serves those who serve our country,” says Allen Smith, President of Burli...

Autocar Launches Two Construction Truck Models – Equipment

Autocar Trucks has launched two tuck models designed for the concrete and construction industry – the Autocar DC-64M (pictured), designed for concrete mixers and the DC-64P, made for concrete pump applications The Autocar DC-64M is designed for concrete mixers and the DC-64P is made for concrete pump applications. The Autocar DC is a conventional truck engineered from the ground-up for severe-duty vocational applications. “The new DC models are the result of extensive input we received from our advisory board of concrete professionals,” said Eric Schwartz, managing director of Autocar Trucks. “Every inch of these trucks has been reviewed and improved based on the decades of experience of people operating concrete mixer and boom pump trucks.” The Autocar DC-64M and DC-64P bring several innovations that make them uniquely suited for their respective vocations, according to Autocar. Autocar says the workspace of the cab maximizes productivity for drivers with everything designed to be visible and within easy reach. The Autocar DC’s cab was designed by Autocar for exceptional productivity, durability and safety in the concrete industry. The cab structure is built from a combi...

3D Printing and the Circular Economy Part 6: CNC Machining

CNC machining is a manufacturing process in which pre-programmed computer software dictates the movement of factory tools and machinery. The process can be used to control a range of complex machinery, from grinders and lathes to mills and routers. With CNC machining, three-dimensional cutting tasks can be accomplished in a single set of prompts. CNC refers to computer numerical control. Today we will be comparing CNC methods to 3D Printing and additive manufacturing in terms of their places within a circular economy.  Transportation waste is not as large of a concern when it comes to CNC machining. It is important to have one’s material ready before they are to place the material within a CNC center. The layout of one’s factory or fabrication environment is more critical towards this type of waste. Similar thoughts can be arrived at in terms of additive manufacturing. Based on the types of material used for a CNC machine, it is slightly difficult to transport larger amounts of the metals used for these machines.  Inventory waste is mostly oriented towards what material you are using for the CNC process. Typically we are using metal materials. The type of materials typically use...

YPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN” “http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd”> For anyone embarking on an adventurous trip or who just needs to cart lots of gear to the base of a crag or to the campsite, a duffel bag is a useful piece of kit. With possible uses in mind, we evaluated 12 different bags to see how easy they were to use, how versatile they could be and how comfortable they were to carry. They ranged in size from 40 litres, useful for overnight or short trips, right up to 100 litres, which is enough capacity to take lots of expedition gear. Many of the duffel bags had the option to carry using straps rucksack-style, which makes for a more comfortable travel, but if you already have a backpack on, you will need the option of a conventional carrying mode. Most were water-resistant and would keep out showers; a few were truly waterproof, so if you are expecting a wet journey, these could be your choice. We always seem to find ourselves having to get into a bag or adjust its straps at points where we have least time, so duffels that weren’t fiddly to use scored higher.

“Load up the Camper Van, Bud! Glory Awaits!”: A Road Trip Throughout New Zealand

Miss our adventures bungy jumping, snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef, or exploring the cyclone-hit city of Cairns? Click the links to read more about our adventures down under! El and I love ourselves a good road trip. From our WWII sites trek to stalking Game of Thrones filming locations in Ireland to an epic 16 days throughout the Balkans, we like the freedom that comes with driving to our destinations. When we decided to do the same thing while on the south island of New Zealand in March, we knew that there was only one rig we could use on this type of odyssey: a camper van. Camper van culture is HUGE in New Zealand, and described by many as the only way to see the country. El’s coworker, who’s based in Aussie but originally from NZ, said it best when he texted Elliot, “Load up the camper van, bud! Glory awaits!” We did and saw so much that it took me six months to write this post, so get cozy, mate, glory awaits! Our flight to Christchurch from Brisbane was an early one and took about three and a half hours, a reminder that New Zealand may look close to Australia on a map, but it’s still damn far away.  As we started to land in Christchurch, th...

You could say that in her written greeting to visitors entering a museum exhibition in downtown

You could say that in her written greeting to visitors entering a museum exhibition in downtown Lewiston, Bates theater professor Christine McDowell bares her sole. In an introductory text on a gallery wall, McDowell describes a lifelong interest in shoes that stems from her fascination with the creativity and cultural clues represented in footwear. Her shoe jones, she says, earned her the nickname “Imelda Marcos,” after the Philippine political figure “infamous for having over 3,000 pairs of shoes.” In collaboration with Emma Sieh, collections and exhibits coordinator at Lewiston’s Museum L-A, McDowell put together the museum’s current gallery exhibition, Footwear: From Function to Fashion. McDowell researched the show, designed it with Sieh and others, and provided shoes to display. (The Bates Museum of Art and theater department also loaned shoes, as did the Androscoggin Historical Society, in addition to supplying research materials.) In fact, from platforms to peek-toes and from slingbacks to Spectators, about three-quarters of the shoes on display come from McDowell’s personal collection of 200-plus pairs. Many of them are concentrated in a spectacular “Wall of Shoes” acro...

How to pick the best telephoto lenses for Nikon? Owners of the best Nikon cameras are

How to pick the best telephoto lenses for Nikon? Owners of the best Nikon cameras are spoilt for choice, with a catalogue of lenses that ranges from modest zooms bearing wide maximum apertures, to super-telephoto zooms that stretch to 500mm.  To make it easier for you to figure out which is the best far-reaching lens for you, we’ve put together this guide to the best Nikon F-mount telephoto lenses around right now. There are actually a number of hyper-telephoto 150-600mm lenses on the market as well, but we have a separate buyer’s guide for those: the best 150-600mm lenses. You might be tempted to stick to own-brand Nikon lenses, but it’d be a mistake not to more fully consider your options. Third-party manufacturers such as Tamron and Sigma are making excellent optics for all sorts of different users, and many of these are as good or even better than Nikon’s own-brand lenses, with the added benefit of generally being more affordable. One thing to watch out for is that some of the more recent lenses feature an electromagnetically controlled diaphragm. Compared with the mechanical lever traditionally used in Nikon’s F mount lens system, this enables greater cons...
