When the time comes to replace the old computers for your business, it's very important that you ensure that hard drive destruction is properly done on your old machines. Far too many businesses make the mistake of simply throwing out their old computers without stopping to think about what valuable information could still be on them.
Many businesses have sensitive financial or confidential information that they definitely do not want to be made public knowledge. So what would happen if someone with questionable morals were to find your old computers? Criminals could do a lot of damage to your business with the information that is left on old hard drives. On top of damage that they could do to your business, if you have the sensitive information of other individuals or businesses stored on your old computers, they too could be targeted as well.
This could result in not only your reputation suffering, but also possible legal action since you allowed the information of others to fall into criminal hands. Instead of risking all of these possibilities you need to make sure that hard drive destruction of your old computers is given top priority.
Because proper hard drive destruction is very important to the well being of your computer, the next step is deciding how to go about doing it the right way. The truth is that completely eliminating all intellectual property and other sensitive data from a hard drive is harder than you might think.
You can't simply erase your hard drive, or even physically damage it in order to make all of the information on it impossible to retrieve. Unless you are willing to remove each hard drive from each computer and completely destroy it, it's best to leave hard drive destruction to a professional.
When selecting a company to handle your hard drive destruction the first thing you need to do is look for an NAID certified company. NAID (or National Association for Information Destruction) certified companies specialize in making sure that the intellectual property stored on hard drives and other forms of storage is completely destroyed. Making sure that information is impossible to retrieve is what they do for a living, which means that you can rest assured that your hard drive destruction is done the right way.
A part of doing business is updating your technology, which means that you need to get new computers on a regular basis. Another part of doing business is making sure that the information stored on the hard drives of your old computers is properly destroyed. The sensitive information stored on your old hard drives can be used to potentially hurt your business, it's employees, it's customers, and other entities that associate with it.
Rather than take the risk of this happening you need to act responsibly and make sure that the hard drive destruction of old computers is done by professionals. Taking the time to properly handle your old hard drives now can save you a lot of time and headaches in the future.continue...
With Summer nearing, the popularity of custom tank tops has greatly risen. Ideal for beach goers, college sororities and fraternities, vacation groups, and other creative-minded customers, creating custom tank tops is top choice for fun warm weather apparel.
But what actually goes in to the creation of custom tank tops?
The process and technology behind making custom tank tops is actually quite extensive and fascinating. So in this post, we're going in-depth into the technology, systems, and processes behind the creation of custom tank tops.
Whether web-based or equipped on a company computer, professional design software is the first component of the custom tank top creation process. Image editing design software enables users (both customers and expert designers) to craft custom prints, color coordinations, logos, and layouts that will later be implemented on the tank top.
There are two primary types of graphic files that are applied in the design process. These include: raster files and vector files. Raster files, which use pixelated dot pattern format, can help designers play with varied resolutions and image clarity. Vector files use plotted pattern points (which is unrelated to the image's resolution) but can be integrated to enhance or craft a design without distorting the entire file.
Without professional-grade design software, the ability create custom tank tops is severely limited. In fact, it would be impossible for individuals like yourself to visit a website that enables you to create or upload your design on web-based platform to make your custom tank top.
Integrated with the latter mention design software is the hardware technology to make it all happen. Once the final custom tank top design has been submitted, a digital screen printing system (the "hardware") processes the data and begins tailoring the custom tank top.
This process in creating custom tank tops is known as custom screen printing and it consists of ink being applied to a screen-based pattern stencil (often created for the specific tank top design on hand). The ink will only transfer through certain aspects of the screen, thus creating the custom print on the tank top fabric.
Before this is done, a pre-press process is conducted to make the mesh screen. This process demands specific technology to craft a unique screen that will print the given custom tank top design. This is common in all aspects of custom screen printing.
Next, the custom screen is placed over a blank tank top and ink is then wiped over the screen to produce an impression of the custom design. Although this system used create custom tank tops is fairly consistent, there are different types of printing presses that can be used. These include cylinder, rotary, and flat bed, however the most commonly used today is the rotary system. Additionally, it's important to note that some screen printing systems to create custom tank tops are manual and others are automatic.
Most companies that provide custom tank tops online use automatic systems that help streamline the overall process. However other more small and niche operations will use manual systems.continue...
The volumetric load scanner has spawned a new dimension to the process of payload management. This load scanning system is the perfect solution for the volumetric measurement of bulk material loaded on to a truck.
Volumetric load scanning technology an indispensable tool that allows operations to determine accurate and optimal load volumes by generating 3D volume images of the truck bed. These load scanning systems use advanced laser scanning technology and are put to use in a variety of operations, including construction, mining, demolition and other applications.
This innovative system provides automatic volume calculations of loaded trucks. No wonder this new technology is touted as an ideal solution for a multitude of applications and industries. The vehicles are driven slowly below an elevated scan head and the scanning process is fully automated. A touch screen operator console facilitates the operator to easily control and monitor the system and the LED message board displays the load results. There is also a ticket printer that simultaneously prints the load results.
Check out this video of Walz Scale load scanner which are the industry standard for this advanced technology.
Volumetric load scanning systems are relatively new technologies that provide real time load volumes for trucks in motion. Initially the trucks are scanned empty and the resultant data is stored in the system. Then the trucks are scanned loaded. The system then compares this data with that stored in the system for the same vehicle when it was empty.
Like the volumetric bed load scanning systems offered by Walz Scale, the load scan system thus calculates the load volume with optimal ease and efficiency. Each and every vehicle that uses the load scanner is fitted with an RFID tag. The optimal drive through speed of the vehicle is very slow which is estimated to be approximately a person’s walking speed only.
Below we share several key benefits that can be realized with volumetric load scanning systems.
The volumetric load scanner is an invaluable tool in mining operations and other businesses to manage and monitor truck loads. Mining productivity is all about moving maximum material as efficiently as possible. This is made possible by a load scanner.continue...
Onboard grain cart scales are weighing scales that are used in farms payload management technology. They are weighing systems integrated directly onboard the actual grain cart and they are able of measuring the weight of a grain load while it is on the cart. Some of the most advanced onboard scale systems are capable of measuring the weight of a load while the grain carts are in motion.
Onboard grain cart scales have already become a farming industry standard in agricultural operations because they are very versatile in their application and they can offer good convenience in weighing a grain cart's payload.
Onboard grain cart scales have highly accurate weight measuring capabilities, taking in account the weight and the sheer size of the cart and the payload. These types of scales can also measure accurately even minor variations in a cart's net weight.
Onboard grain cart scales are durable, very precise, and easy to install. A large range of onboard scales is produced by many companies. The objective of onboard scale manufacturing companies is to build precise onboard grain cart scales that meet the roughest industry standards and environmental requirements.
Onboard grain cart scales are tested to work in severe environments, in a diverse temperature range. They found their efficient application in the farming industry. Some of them work wirelessly and they display the results of their measurements on a handheld monitor. Gross weight and individual axle weights can be shown in real time and simultaneously. Weight measurements can be shown in net payload or in gross payload, in different measurement units such as kg, ton, or lbs.
The technology employed in building onboard scales for grain carts is effective and simple. The scales feature electronic pads made of strong aluminum. The pads have the role to measure the weights placed on them and to show on a display the measurement results. On a grain cart, the scales can be mounted individually on the cart’s axle or in pairs. Usually the weighting pads are coupled together for maximum accuracy in multiple pairs and they feature an integrated or a remote indicator.
The onboard grain cart scales have different performance specifications and different load cells. The average scale can still remain functional even in case of overload. The full scale output is 3mV and the maximum excitation is 15VDC. Currently, there are technologies that allow weighting 20,000 LBS. The minimum weight measurement capability of onboard grain cart scales is 10,000 LBS.
Onboard grain cart scales can also employ in motion weighing sensors able to measure the payload while the grain cart is in motion, making the weighting process more fast and efficient. They are integrated on grain carts and various other heavy-duty agricultural equipment.
When used in conjunction with harvest management software like "Yield Pro" from Walz Scale, they can help farmers optimize the efficiency of their operations. Yield Pro software is a harvest management platform that helps farmers using farm cart scales and farm axle scales in measuring the weight of their products.
The operation is done in the easiest way possible, taking advantage of the technological agricultural software’s hi-tech features. This technology helps farmers to increase the productivity and efficiency of their operations by reducing the time spent with grains weight measurement.continue...
Chiropractic is one of the oldest medical specialties still in practice. It has lasted this long and been extremely beneficial to so many people simply because it works. A highly trained doctor and his hands are the best tools a patient could ever hope for.
However, every now and then, chiropractic technology makes an advance. It shakes up the field and makes even the best doctors take note. That is the case for the PulStar Adjuster from Sense Technology, Inc.
This unique technology innovation is not only a diagnostic tool, it can actually replaces a chiropractor's hands with HVLA (high velocity low amplitude) chiropractic adjustments. It can be used in conjunction with traditional methods of spinal manipulation and other therapies, but its real value is evidenced in how well it breaks down a patient’s internal functionality and provides the most accurate moment-by-moment diagnostics.
After you've received a proper assessment from your chiropractor, you can then start to use the PulStar technology. This computerized machine electronically and non-invasively reads the spacing and motion between each vertebral segment through a hand-held sensing tool, also called the probe. It gives the chiropractor quantifiable determinants of the neuro-musculo skeletal system and any areas of subluxation, inflammation, and disease.
The detailed temperature and motive readings allow for a more accurate diagnosis, which leads to a more advantageous course of treatment being prescribed. Additionally, this computer generated model of the patient’s spine is safer than traditional x-rays and less expensive than MRIs, and it can be done in-office on a regularly scheduled visit. Its affordability in this time of fluctuations in healthcare give patients a degree of certainty about whether can afford treatment.
The PulStar Adjuster can be used when the patient is positioned for prone, supine, or seated adjustments. Doctors have the ability to exchange dual or single prong attachments for precision manipulations that straddle the spinous process or pinpoint small joints and bones. These are mounted on the same handheld probe that assisted in the initial analysis.
Carefully calculated and measured multiple electro-mechanical impulses are sent to patient, and they effectually do part of the job of a chiropractor’s hands. The variable force of adjustment that is provided and the soft tips on the prongs make it milder for patients when adjusting extremities and areas of soft tissue. Plus, PulStar’s Sweep technology is gentler for extremely sore and delicate soft tissue and injured areas. This tool is also better for the doctor, because the former manual activators resulted in sore hands and digits after one day of intermittent use.
While being used on a patient, continual readings are taken to assess mobile improvements throughout all stages of the adjustment. This lets doctors and patients view their progress in real time.
Take a look at the video below offering an introduction to the ProAdjuster chiropractic technique. This video was produced by the Bloomington, IL chiropractors at Bly-Hillman Chiropractic, leaders in the field of this innovative chiropractic technology.
Doctors who have purchased the PulStar Adjuster have stated that it provides clearer and more precise analytical data of a patient’s condition than they previously had. Those who used it for multiple treatments have shown outstanding results and found the potential for use in many cases.
Its efficacy has been tested on very small babies up to patients in their 80s and 90s with no harm or adverse side effects being manifest or reported. A compilation of testimonials and reviews is available from Sense Technology, Inc., when inquiring about this machine, or on their website.
The PulStar Adjuster’s goal to help the doctor restore maximum functionality to the patient, restore structural integrity, and improve overall health has been met in this single piece of chiropractic technology. It seems they have truly evolved the chiropractic field into the twenty-first century.continue...
Railroad scales have revolutionized the technology for large-scale weighing operations in many industries. Railroad scales are used in various mining, farming, and other resource extraction operations.
Railroad scale systems are form of technology used for large-scale processing and heavy-duty weighing. These scale systems help to ensure optimal efficiency for weighing operations of payloads carried by trains. Their most common application is on the mining sites where the resources are extracted and loaded onto a rail car.
The first railroad scales were developed in the 1950's. During their initial stages they did not have sufficient instrumentation, mass sensors, storage and data units. Since their development in the 50’s, the railroad scales’ technology evolved to what we have in use today.
One of the models of today's railroad scale technology is the Walz Scale rail scales that feature static and in-motion designs and employ the latter cutting-edge technologies.
Most of the railroad scale systems are integrated directly on railroad tracks. There are two main types of railroad scales:
Almost all railroad scales employ a mass sensor. This sensor is integrated within or on the railroad’s structure. Depending on their position on the rail tracks, the mass sensor might be permanent, semi-permanent, or temporary.
Railroad scales also use a processor and data storage unit with the role of gathering and communicate weight information from the scale system. The processor and data storage unit are usually installed near the mass sensor placed in the rail tracks. The processor unit connected to the mass sensor receives the weight data from the scale system and display the information to be read by the human operator.
Railroad scales are used in any industry that demands accurate monitoring of payload weights. The industrial operations that most commonly employ rail scales are mining, farming, industrial transportation, food processing, and chemical operations.
The railroad scale systems that are designed specific to the mining industry can improve the overall efficiency and safety of mining operations, as well as lower the costs involved with the mining scale systems. Mining trucks dump loads onto the train cars for transport and the materials are weighed on the railroad scale systems in order to determine their payload value.continue...
