Is there such a thing as too much profit? One company thinks so.

Fanuc is a group of companies located across the globe, headquartered in Japan; Fanuc is one of the world’s leading producers of autonomous products and services such as robotics and computer numerical control systems. The primary consumers of Fanuc products are those of US and Japanese automobile and electronics manufacturers. Due to the robotics provided by Fanuc, Panasonics factories in Amagasaki can produce 2 million televisions a month… with just 25 employees. Fanuc is the global leader of factory automation systems.
However, recently instated president Kenji Yamaguchi has said that a company can indeed make too much profit; this was said referring to the fact the company made 43% profit in 2011. Fanuc are without doubt the one of the biggest suppliers of factory equipment and therefore, it must be of concern that China, the biggest manufacturer in the world is showing it’s worth growth rates for two decades.

When reaching profit levels of 43% in 2011, Fanuc was every investors dream; however Yamaguchi has warned investors to not be expecting those rates anytime soon. Yamaguchi even controversially admitted that there is perhaps such thing as too much profit, he stated that if you are making that much money, you are probably not investing enough into the company’s future. To confirm that Yamaguchi was not bluffing, Fanuc have now ventured into a series of investments that might not necessarily reach profits for 5 or 10 years, and last month Fanuc announced it had purchased land for a new industrial robot factory and Yamaguchi said it plans to spend several hundred million dollars to as much as double its production capacity for them.

In May, the company completed two new research centers at its headquarters. To staff them, Yamaguchi said Fanuc more than tripled its hiring of engineers over the last few years to about 100 annually. Overall, headcount has grown by more than 1,000 since 2013, a 20 percent increase.
Well, Fanuc are not holding back and as the world becomes more involved in autonomous motors with the latest announcements, you can only think that Fanuc are going to have a big role to play in the advancements of the autonomous industry.

The Benefits of Bamboo Plywood

In many countries, bamboo is utilized as a building material. It is strong as steel in tension and stronger than concrete in compression. It is also easy to work with because it is much more lightweight than wood, concrete or steel. It has therefore a great ration of strength to weight.

Other than its strong physical properties, bamboo has the advantage to be easily available. Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plant on Earth, with reported growth rates of 250 cm in 24 hours, depending on local soil, climatic conditions and species. Bamboo grows so fast that it can produce 20 times more timber than tress on the same area of land.

Bamboo also has environmental benefits, it can grow and spread quickly without fertilizers, pesticides or much water. A bamboo grove releases 35% more oxygen into the air than similar-sized trees.

Main uses of bamboo plywood :

Given the increasing awareness of global environment, bamboo, as a fast-growing, high-yielding and sustainable natural resource is gaining more and more advantage over timber and steel.

Серебряная Вода – Да или Нет?

В России чуть ли не каждая семья имеет в своем запасе священную воду, воду из родника и бутылочку с серебряной ложкой на дне. Правда или нет, но еще с детства меня интересовал вопрос – почему ложка не нашла себе лучшего применения, чем лежать на дне, выполняя, на мой вгзляд абсолютно бесполезную работу? Время прошло и теперь я всерьез заинтерисована этим вопросом, ответом на который и собираюсь поделиться с вами…

silver 1

 

Начнем с того, что серебро использовалось нашими предками чуть ли не с запамятных времен и со временем мы так привыкли к его применению, что не заметили, как стали есть с серебряных тарелок и ложек, пить с серябряных бакалов, ставить цветы в серябряные вазы… в общем пользоваться этим благородным металлом во всех присущих ему качествах. Но неужели его предназначение закончится легкостью обрабатывания и непремудростью использования? Как вы понимаете – нет, главное и, на мой взгляд, ценное его свойство это способность дезинфицировать все к чему оно имеет дело. Серебро убивает микробы, товарищи! Бактерицидные свойства серебра известны с глубокой древности. Еще в Древней Индии с помощью этого металла обеззараживали воду, а персидский царь Кир хранил воду в серебряных сосудах. И возможно теперь нам следует задуматься перед тем как покупать дорогущуу бутылку французской воды и вернуться к старому дедовскому способу…купить набор серебряных ложек, который войдет не только в богатсво вашей семьи, но и поправит здоровье!

Silver Water! Myth or Reality?

First I heard about Silver Water from my mom.  We used to have a bottle of water with a small silver spoon on the bottom. Once I asked her what’s for we need a silver spoon in the water, she told me that this little spoon will protect our family from any kind of disease. As I always believe my mother, I haven’t thought about it too serious until recently. Lets  see is a Silver Water myth or reality?

silver 1

So, when my mom said that silver water will protect us from disease, she basically meant that silver is a specific metals which can stop the growth of germs and microbes on contact. Silver and copper are best known in this regard and are often used in commercial applications. Among germicidal metals, however,silver is of greater importance because it is the only metal that is completely non toxic to the body. In fact, silver has been used since ancient times to not only keep stored water “sweet” and germ free, but also to speed the healing of wounds and minimize the formation of scar tissue. Also I even read an amazing story about a miracle effect of a silver water which helped to cure a bone infection. Check the article if you’re interested. 

Just think about, silver is everywhere… we are eating off silver plates, storing our water and wine in silver vessels, drinking from silver cups and eating with silver utensils.

But if the main purpose of a still water is disinfection, what stops us of buying a pure water which is also have a wide list of a good recommendations? I guess it’s all up every person decision. Here the link to the silver water company where you can find more detailed information.  Also you can check our website to read and know more about silver and any related products or send us your inquiry, we have English-speaking stuff that will help you to find the best product for you.
