Mobility 1.0

Date: 27 July 2020 4:00 AM

Global expansion can open tremendous opportunities for business growth, but it does not come without risk, especially when it involves employee relocation. When moving even a single employee to a new international location, it is important to get the best return on your investment, and to make sure employer and employee compliance requirements are addressed to avoid expensive fines, penalties and restrictions that can interfere with business success.

Mobility 1.0 is designed to remove the guesswork from international relocation by providing straightforward solutions to address common mobility challenges. This has never been more pertinent than at this time, with continually changing regulations and restrictions that make ensuring that an international assignment can proceed an even bigger challenge, both in terms of their legality, but also in terms of the health and wellbeing of the assignee and any accompanying dependents.

The Elesa Panel Support Clamp range offers a quick and robust solution to the construction of safety screens manufactured in acrylic or other materials. These screens are particularly beneficial when managing COVID infection risks in public areas or the workplace. Elesa Panel Support Clamps enable simple assembly of divider panels such as “sneeze screens and shields” for industrial safety enclosures, guarding of machines or workstations.
 
In particular their award-winning PC – Panel Support Clamp range enables easy installation of protective panels onto industrial frames in steel or aluminium extruded sections. This innovative range has been extended with the PPR series in black or grey, for plain panels between 4mm to 6mm, or for wire mesh as an aid to ensuring compliance with machine safety requirements such as ISO 13857 para 4.2.4.
Suitable for architectural panels and similar, such as stair panels, partitions, balconies and more. Elesa Panel Support Clamps can be fitted to standard 1" square tube without drilling and come with or without internal vibration damping rubber grip pads for plain panels, or with locking teeth to suit electro-welded mesh type TEC® (max. wire dia. 3mm). They are constructed in tough glass reinforced polyamide with flush mounted M5 AISI 304 stainless steel fittings for a quick and simple clamp-in-place installation.
 
Original PC Clamp series offer the option to be securely fitted to aluminium extrusions or steel channel sections and incorporates full component retention when open, plus rubber grip pads to ensure stable location without drilling of the panel. Panel installation with PC Panel Support Clamps requires that the correct spacer be fitted to match the relevant panel thickness and the hex keyed screw (M6) be tightened up. The positive grip characteristics of the clamp, combined with its method of fixing, ensures a secure fixing of the guard panel. Grip range of the PC Clamp runs from 3.1mm up to 8.00mm by virtue of retained spacers.

As international component manufacturers of high quality items from handwheels to positioning indicators, Elesa know what helps to ensure best practice in production. They are therefore pleased to launch this powerful new MM range of pneumatic clamps (up to 475Nm) which offer fast repetitive clamping cycles on manual or automated production lines to aid achievement of lower costs and more efficient output.
 
The MM range is available in side locking, axial locking and axial centre locking (twin jaw) designs to suit the many variations required for handling of jigs and components in all orientations. They are produced in robust black oxide finished steel housings readily fitted to production machines of all types using an extensive selection of accessories. These provide many clamping adaptations quickly and easily with stock components to aid correct set up and to minimise down time.
 
Accessories include “I” brackets which enable mounting of jaw blocks and “Y” brackets to accept clamping screws, so that correct installation may be executed in a simple fashion; also right angled brackets, jaw blocks, shim kits, centre bushings, mounting brackets and rear protective shields. Correct positioning at speed may be controlled with Elesa MM proximity switches connected to the clamping controller.

Global Communication in the ‘Next Normal’

Global Communication in the ‘Next Normal’

Date: 13 July 2020 4:00 AM

One of the most notable changes that many employees have experienced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic is an increase in virtual meetings with colleagues locally and across the globe. As restrictions on travel have prevented organizations from moving their workforce, either on long-term assignments or simply for business travel, employees are being required to communicate virtually more than ever.
 
Virtual meetings present a number of new challenges. Whilst there has been a great deal of focus on the role of technology, with many having to quickly become familiar and comfortable with this being their sole means of communicating, virtual meetings can also present challenges with ensuring effective communication within teams, particularly when they are spread across multiple countries and cultures.
 
With this in mind, here are three key considerations to keep front of mind in order to enhance cross-cultural communication as we navigate a world where virtual meetings have become the norm.
 
1. Empathy. The COVID-19 pandemic has been experienced in vastly different ways across different countries and communities. As well as varying levels of disruption and social restrictions, cultural groups will react differently to the common experience of uncertainty and anxiety. Awareness of the differing experiences of others may enable greater empathy for the viewpoints and reactions of others and foster a greater understanding of this shared experience, with the potential of enhancing the quality of remote and virtual communication

2. Context. Whereas previously colleagues may have gathered in one place for a face-to-face meeting, it is probable that many organizations have found their employees dispersed across the globe. This can present a number of logistical challenges for communication. For example, holding a virtual meeting with many international participants will involve multiple timezones, meaning that the timing may present more difficulty for some than others. The same can be said for different holidays and significant events that occur in different countries and cultures. By demonstrating awareness of the contextual factors, greater common understanding and sense of value will be fostered among participants.
 
3. Non-verbal communication. In the context of virtual meetings, non-verbal communication can assist with conveying meaning and increasing a shared understanding. Gestures can aid colleagues from high-context cultures who rely more heavily on non-verbal communication to make their viewpoint heard or for their understanding of others. This can also be helpful for those whose ability to communicate may be impeded by a language barrier, a difficulty often heightened when not communicating in-person. Not relying solely on verbal communication conveys a commitment to inclusiveness and ensures that no one is left behind.
 
Many organizations will be experiencing the challenges that can arise with global teams at an enhanced level during the current pandemic. Additional training to assist employees with identifying how they can work better in a cross-cultural setting can be of great benefit, especially as they settle into the ‘next normal’ of virtual working. There are many resources out there to assist organizations in better equipping their employees with the skills they need to be successful. For more information on the training we can provide please contact us using the details below.

Here are a few glimpses from our production site, where 4 pcs of 6 stage falling film evaporators are at the final stage of the production process.
One evaporator is already on its way to a client in Russia. The largest one is able to evaporate 50 tons of water per hour.

https://youtu.be/B4hmhG6kRjs​

The capacity of our evaporators can be adjusted directly from the panel. The operating mode can be changed fully automatically without the need for mechanical intervention by the operator. We are able to produce evaporation stations with capacities from 5,000 l/h up to 70,000 l/h of juice feed rate inflow.
