Die casting is considered an efficient, economical process that offers a broader range of shapes and components than any other manufacturing technique. This white paper presents cooperative engineering as an effective method for reducing costs, improving quality, and increasing production efficiency for die-cast parts.

Collider

Collider has invented a solution to expand the materials that can be used in 3D printing, to solve problems 3D printing has never been able to achieve. We make parts in thousands of off-the-shelf manufacturing materials including plastic, rubber, silicone and metal. Our technology has access to all the advantages 3D printing has to offer, including geometric capabilities and zero tooling cost, at a lower cost than injection molding.

Infrastructure Policy Watch: cost of climate change to UK finances, public views on New Zealand infrastructure

Article | March 31, 2020

The Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) in its latest Fiscal Risks Report has forecast the cost to the UK public finances from climate change (physical risks) and the transition to net-zero (transition risks) across a range of different scenarios. Describing the challenge, the OBR states: There are many other policy challenges to overcome, so the path to net zero can be expected to involve many policy levers on top of carbon taxes and emissions trading schemes, including bans and other regulations, and public subsidies and investment. These will all have economic and fiscal implications of one sort or another – either directly (via taxes and spending) or indirectly (via wider economic outcomes). Taking early action to achieve net zero would add 21% of GDP to public sector net debt by 2050, a smaller amount than that added by the Covid-19 pandemic. This amount comes from increased spending on net-zero investment, the loss of tax revenues (such as fuel duty), revenues from tax on carbon and other costs such as increased debt interest payments.

Construction safety management technology trends

Article | March 31, 2020

For construction managers, one of their most important responsibilities is safety. No construction manager wants to see any of their employees hurt, and injuries can lead to project delays and increased costs. Fortunately, there are a number of tools available to assist with keeping construction sites safe. Trends in construction safety management may change from year to year, but often focus on proper training and the use of new technologies.
