Soligen is a metal casting industry which produces fully functional 3-Dimensional cast metal components. Typically the lengths of time to make castings are approximately 6-12month. However with Soligen’s unique technology known as DSPC (Direct Shell Production Casting) the length of
Wii is the PS Move (Sony) and the Kinect by Microsoft. Although both competitors make a product that is easily substitutable, Nintendo’s Wii takes up a lot of the market share because it is more user-friendly. Nintendo’s portable hand held system the 3DS id rivaled only by Sony’s PS Vita. However Sony’s product is not as popular as Nintendo’s and that is apparent in sales numbers7. Finally for the Nintendo Wii U the main competitors are Sony’s PS4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One. Both these products are highly
and Figures in the UK fashion industry”1 almost 2/3 of jobs in the production of textiles, apparel, footwear and leather products were lost in the UK’s textiles manufacturing sector between 2000 and 2009. The sector that in 2000 has employed 285,000 people, in 2009 employed only 99,000. The same report states that this decrease of employment in manufacturing of textiles was strongly impacted by emerging markets like China, India and the new EU-27 member state industries like Bulgaria and Romania.
TECHNOLOGY Materials for 3D printing were very limited during the early days of the technology. Today, there is a whole array of material types that are supplied in different forms (filament, powder, pellets, resin, granules etc). The first step in 3D printing is to design the 3D digital model using a CAD program or scan the object with a 3D scanner. The model will then be ‘sliced’ into layers and converted into a printer-readable file. The printing material will be added one layer at a time.
apprehensions the Chinese government faces, as a more flexible exchange rate would avoid the damaging consequences such as the Asian financial crisis as private savings suffered (Roberts & Tyers, 2003). The new liberalisation regime with interest rates and capital mobility changing means that the manipulation of the currency dampens monetary policy independence, so, I would recommend the author to focus on the wider context of macroeconomic variables and whether it is successful. Thirdly, the author clearly
Chlorophenols such as penta-chlorophenol (PCP) and tetrachloropenol (TeCP) and their salts, are broad spectrum biocides that have been used in agriculture, industry and public health since the 1920s, and are designated as priority pollutants in the list of hazardous wastes [Zheng, et al., 2004]. Several toxic chemical, agrochemical and pharmaceutical industries are discharging poisonous effluents without appropriate treatment. These hazardous wastes are potential threat to human and animal life. Trace amounts
Pixar’s resources and capabilities have set a standard that is extremely difficult to imitate. Through its highly talented employee pool, culture of creativity and collaboration, and proprietary 3D computer animation software, Pixar has created a competitive advantage in the animation film industry that yielded average total box office sales of $538 million with just six movies. Pixar shareholders should be wary of the potential breakdown of these resources and capabilities, which in essence
clothing to enable the user to interact in realistic three-dimensional situations (Biocca). It has recently gained attention throughout the gaming subculture in the form of the Oculus Rift, a new console that allows users to interact with a constructed 3D environment. However, its potential does not end there. It is already being applied to provide hands on training for surguries (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1356924/) and scientists are finding applications for it in ocean and space exploration
Brothers called Walt and Roy. It was started as the Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio and later on to be called Walt Disney Studio. The main headquarters of Disney is located in Burbank, California, USA. This company is now of the leading animation industry in America and they are slowly broadening their horizons into live-action film production as well as in television and also travel. A cartoon name that became such a worldwide phenomenon called Mickey Mouse began in Disney as it was a well
way to make a sports cars was for it to be gasoline powered. They wanted to make a car that would not only be able to compete with luxury sports cars, like Ferraris, but would also be electric powered. All of the founders had substantial amounts of capital which allowed them to actually follow through with their plan of creating an all-electric powered sports car. That first car was the Tesla Roadster. The roadster was unveiled in 2006 at a Hollywood event, and within two weeks 127 were sold. Even
