Tracking the leaders in cabinets, furniture, millwork and fixtures

‘); //–> com.realmagnet.MagnetLeads.init(‘OrfhmQgk6sGIKGvE9vw’); com.realmagnet.MagnetLeads.visitPage(); Who are the largest cabinet manufacturers in North America? The biggest producers of furniture? The millwork and store fixture companies with the largest sales? This information is part of the FDMC 300, an annual report that FDMC and Woodworking Network produce each year. The top 10 lists here are based on 2015 data, the most recent completed year we’ve researched. The FDMC 300 is a group of the 300 largest cabinet, furniture, millwork, store fixture, office/contract and component producers in North America. As we reported earlier this year, sales for the FDMC 300 group of companies grew 7 percent in 2015 to $46.404 billion, by our estimate. For this important group of 300 companies it was the fourth consecutive year of sales growth, and it came after five years of declines from 2007 to 2011. Once again, cabinet companies of different sizes did especially well in 2015. Many of the larger, publicly traded companies and privately held firms we were able to document had a positive year. We won’t have final figures for 2016 for several months, but in...

Wetenschappers willen elektrische auto opladen tijdens het rijden – IT Pro – Nieuws

Wetenschappers werken aan een manier om elektrische auto’s tijdens het rijden op te laden, door magnetische spoelen in het wegdek te plaatsen. Daarmee moet het grootste nadeel van elektrische auto’s, de beperkte actieradius, worden opgeheven. Om elektrische auto’s draadloos en tijdens het rijden te kunnen opladen, moeten magnetische spoelen in het wegdek worden geplaatst, denken wetenschappers van de Californische Stanford University. Dat schrijft de New Scientist. De spoelen creëren een zwak veld dat resoneert met een spoel in de auto, waardoor energie wordt overgedragen. De wetenschappers denken in staat te zijn om gedurende 7 microseconden 10 kilowatt aan vermogen over te brengen tussen twee resonerende spoelen, met een efficiëntie van 97 procent. Dat zou goed genoeg zijn om ook bij hoge snelheden gen...

The 2018 Nissan Titan XD is beyond huge, beyond titanic. It’s like Andre the Giant ringside,

The 2018 Nissan Titan XD is beyond huge, beyond titanic. It’s like Andre the Giant ringside, like the Yeti in a mountain snow, like Fortnite to a tween. The XD likely stands for eXtra Duty since Nissan promotes it as heavy-duty capable but light-duty driveable, like a Ford F-150, Chevrolet Silverado or Ram 1500. Titan XD might be sized like the extended cab offerings of light duty trucks, but it behaves like something much more. Crank the V-8 diesel engine, and it could be mistaken for a semitruck. Drive it and empathize with long-haul truckers confronted with all the nuisance drivers buzzing about like gnats at dusk. Park it in an underground garage, and the nose sticks out like hair on a wart. The Cummins 5-liter turbocharged V-8 engine churns out 555 pound-feet of torque, good enough to tow 12,640 pounds, ideal for lugging around your pet elephant. An equally heavy-duty six-speed Aisin automatic transmission developed exclusively for the Titan XD delivers power in a 4×4 system for off-road conquering. Switching the selector to 2WD makes the Titan XD more manageable on roads, but there is no place for economy when it comes to fuel in this beast. Since it’s classified as ...

Now that most incandescent lightbulbs are pretty much a thing of the past, consumers now must

Now that most incandescent lightbulbs are pretty much a thing of the past, consumers now must choose between LED (light-emitting diode), CFL (compact fluorescent), and halogen bulbs to light their homes. But which is the best option? It all depends on your needs. We’ll take you through the various kinds of lighting, the benefits that each offers, and help you find the best light bulb for you. Traditional incandescent bulbs measured their brightness in watts; if you wanted a brighter bulb, you bought one with a higher wattage. However, with the advent of LEDs and other types of lighting, that yardstick has become meaningless, and as a result, a bulb’s brightness is now listed as lumens, which is a more accurate measurement of how bright it is, rather than how much energy it consumes. Below is a conversion table which shows how much energy, in watts, an incandescent bulb and an LED typically require to produce the same amount of light. Other replacement lightbulb choices consume more power than LED bulbs and have shorter rated-lifespans, but cost much less upfront. A 60-watt–equivalent CFL bulb from Philips, for example, consumes 13 watts and has a rated lifetime of 12,000 ...

Effects of microbiota-directed foods in gnotobiotic animals and undernourished children

↵† Present address: Department of Medicine, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA 02114, USA. Childhood malnutrition is accompanied by growth stunting and immaturity of the gut microbiota. Even after therapeutic intervention with standard commercial complementary foods, children may fail to thrive. Gehrig et al. and Raman et al. monitored metabolic parameters in healthy Bangladeshi children and those recovering from severe acute malnutrition. The authors investigated the interactions between therapeutic diet, microbiota development, and growth recovery. Diets were then designed using pig and mouse models to nudge the microbiota into a mature post-weaning state that might be expected to support the growth of a child. These were first tested in mice inoculated with age-characteristic gut microbiota. The designed diets entrained maturation of the children’s microbiota and put their metabolic and growth profiles on a healthier trajectory. There is a dimension to postnatal human development that involves assembly of microbial communities in different body habitats, including the gut. Children with acute malnutrition have impaired development of their gut microbiota, leavin...

Machines for every process—shuttle, wheel, reciprocating-screw, accumulator-head, suction-blow, injection-blow, compression blow, and one- or two-stage stretch-blow molding—will be running in Orlando. There will be a host of new models, including electric and servo-hydraulic types. Among the new crop of electric machines is Bekum’s EBlow 407DL (double-sided, long-stroke) shuttle machine, to be shown with a special quick-mold-change upgrade (15 min without tools). Pet All Manufacturing is exhibiting for the first time its new ISBM-180E all-electric, four-station rotary one-stage PET stretch-blow machine with a 15-ton clamp and six to 10 cavities for containers from 10 to 100 ml.

A while ago, [Marco] mounted a powerful laser diode to a CNC machine in an attempt

A while ago, [Marco] mounted a powerful laser diode to a CNC machine in an attempt to etch copper clad board and create a few PCBs. The results weren’t that great, but the technique was promising. In a new experiment, [Marco] purchased a very cheap laser engraver kit from China, and now this technique looks like it might be a winner. [Marco] sourced his laser engraver from Banggood, and it’s pretty much exactly what you would expect for a CNC machine that costs under $200. The frame is aluminum extrusion, the motors are off-the-shelf steppers, the electronics are just Pololu-like drivers, and the software is somewhere between abysmal and terrible. Nevertheless, this machine can cut wood, leather, fabric, and can remove spray paint with a big blue laser diode. To create his PCBs, [Marco] is first cleaning a piece of copper clad board, coating it with spray paint, then blasting it with a laser. The preferred software for this is LaserWeb, and the results are pretty good for a cheap machine. There are a few extra steps to creating the PCB once the board has been coated with paint and blasted with a laser. This process still requires etching in either ferric chloride or some other m...
