GLOBAL INDUSTRIAL MACHINERY INDUSTRY - OUTLOOK

Heavy construction equipment is a critical tool for construction activities. They form the backbone of any construction project by reducing human effort and time. Heavy construction equipment has contributed to the rapid development of infrastructure for the development of economies globally. Heavy construction equipment comes in different forms that include earth moving equipment (Excavators, Loaders, Backhoe, Graders/Motor Graders, and Others), material handling equipment (Cranes, Telescopic Handlers, and Others), Construction vehicles. (Dumpers, Tippers), and other heavy construction equipments. 

The global heavy construction equipment market is witnessing decent growth based on heavy investments done in the infrastructure recreation to accommodate smart residential and commercial buildings. The emerging markets in South America and Asia-Pacific are witnessing strong demand for heavy construction equipment and large investments are made in these regions due to increasing population, technological developments, and infrastructural developments in emerging markets.


EUROPEAN CONSTRUCTION MACHINERY INDUSTRY - OUTLOOK 

The construction sector is of strategic importance to the EU as it delivers the buildings and infrastructure needed by the rest of the economy and society. It represents more than 10% of EU GDP and more than 50% of fixed capital formation. It is the largest single economic activity and it is the biggest industrial employer in Europe. The sector employs directly almost 20 million people. The sector indirectly and directly affects some 44 million workers. 40-45% of Europe’s energy consumption stems from buildings with a further 5-10% being used in processing and transport of construction products and components.

EUROPEAN CONSTRUCTION MACHINERY INDUSTRY – GROWTH AREAS 

*  65% of the 500 companies across European building and construction sector in UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain are planning to expand internationally are doing so primarily to evade the current economic environment in Europe in next 05 years.

*  In terms of location, building and construction firms are looking beyond their neighbouring European markets for expansion. 32% see opportunities in Asia and South America while 20% are targeting Africa.

*  The sector does however remain wary of the risks of operating in less familiar territories. The biggest risk that firms believe they face when expanding into new countries is dealing with local regulations (50%), significantly more than those concerned about financial risks and instability (35%) or differing cultures or business practices (35%).

Situation

Calibration is basically a process used to maintain instrument’s accuracy. Calibration is the process of configuring an instrument to provide a result for a sample within an acceptable range. Eliminating or minimizing factors that cause inaccurate measurements is a fundamental aspect of instrumentation design. This process is mandatory to begin testing on device.

Calibration tool was not present in one of thebuilding of Client’s Germany Office. Every time for calibration, engineers had to reach other building along with hardware which was time consuming and a bit tiring too.

Solution

It was decided to install a tool in this building.

A PC, PSU instrument and a booklet was given for guidance. First job was to install the software which was quite easy as there was a CD available. After installing the software, connection of PSU device with the PC using GPIB cable was done. In PSU device, set the bandwidth according to our requirement (whether calibration is in 2G or 3G).

The next and major step was to calculate the attenuation loss (loss due to cable) which was quite a lengthy process and this is the part where the booklet provided was really helpful as there were many formulas involved in it. After much calculation and some hit and trials, finally got the exact value that is to be set for each band starting from 850 MHz. These values are stored in the system as this is the main part that effects the calibration.

Then Communication port (modem port) was set at the specified location and calibration process was executed.

Results

This building now has a calibration tool. So it is saving lots of time which is being utilized in other productive things (rather than moving from one building to other).

Subcategories

  • Joomla!
    • Extensions

      The Joomla! content management system lets you create webpages of various types using extensions. There are 5 basic types of extensions: components, modules, templates, languages, and plugins. Your website includes the extensions you need to create a basic website in English, but thousands of additional extensions of all types are available. The Joomla! Extensions Directory is the largest directory of Joomla extensions.

      • Components

        Component ImageComponents are larger extensions that produce the major content for your site. Each component has one or more "views" that control how content is displayed. In the Joomla administrator there are additional extensions such as Menus, Redirection, and the extension managers.

      • Modules

        Media ImageModules are small blocks of content that can be displayed in positions on a web page. The menus on this site are displayed in modules. The core of Joomla! includes 24 separate modules ranging from login to search to random images. Each module has a name that starts mod_ but when it displays it has a title. In the descriptions in this section, the titles are the same as the names.

        • Content Modules

          Content modules display article and other information from the content component.

        • User Modules

          User modules interact with the user system, allowing users to login, show who is logged-in, and showing the most recently registered users.

        • Display Modules

          These modules display information from components other than content and user. These include weblinks, news feeds and the media manager.

        • Utility Modules

          Utility modules provide useful functionality such as search, syndication and statistics.

        • Navigation Modules

          Navigation modules help your visitors move through your site and find what they need.

          Menus provide your site with structure and help your visitors navigate your site.  Although they are all based on the same menu module, the variety of ways menus are used in the sample data show how flexible this module is.

          A menu can range from extremely simple (for example the top menu or the menu for the Australian Parks sample site) to extremely complex (for example the About Joomla! menu with its many levels). They can also be used for other types of presentation such as the site map linked from the "This Site" menu.

          Breadcrumbs provide users with information about where they are in a site.

      • Templates

        Media ImageTemplates give your site its look and feel. They determine layout, colours, typefaces, graphics and other aspects of design that make your site unique. Your installation of Joomla comes prepackaged with three front end templates and two backend templates. Help

      • Plugins

        Plugin ImagePlugins are small task oriented extensions that enhance the Joomla! framework. Some are associated with particular extensions and others, such as editors, are used across all of Joomla. Most beginning users do not need to change any of the plugins that install with Joomla. Help

  • Park Site
    • Park Blog

      Here is where I will blog all about the parks of Australia.

      You can make a blog on your website by creating a category to write your blog posts in (this one is called Park Blog). Each blog post will be an article in that category. If you make a category blog menu link with 1 column it will look like this page, if you display the category description then this part is displayed.

      To enhance your blog you may want to add extensions for comments, interacting with social network sitestagging, and keeping in contact with your readers. You can also enable the syndication that is included in Joomla (in the Integration Options set Show Feed Link to Show and make sure to display the syndication module on the page).

    • Photo Gallery

      These are my photos from parks I have visited (I didn't take them, they are all from Wikimedia Commons).

      This shows you how to make a simple image gallery using articles in com_content.

      In each article put a thumbnail image before a "readmore" and the full size image after it. Set the article to Show Intro Text: Hide.

  • Fruit Shop Site
    • Growers

      We search the whole countryside for the best fruit growers.

      You can let each supplier have a page that he or she can edit. To see this in action you will need to create a user who is in the suppliers group.  

      Create one page in the growers category for that user and make that supplier the author of the page. That user will be able to edit his or her page.

      This illustrates the use of the Edit Own permission.
