What is GECA certification? How do you know that your product is green? And who sets the bar for any eco-friendly claims you make? Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA) runs Australia’s only independent not-for-profit ecolabelling program that can assess your product against rigorous standards to verify its environmental credentials. There are many factors to take into account for a product to be better for the environment. Its environmental impacts throughout its life, from manufacture to use and disposal — including longevity of life and toxicity — need to be considered to give a true picture. It also needs to address more than just one or two of these. Without robust third-party standards, there’s no accurate way to assess environmental impact with certainty, and furthermore, no standards to measure it against. GECA’s ecolabel on your products and services provides an independent tick to specifiers and purchasers that your products and services are better for the environment and reduce their impact on human health. Our standards are developed following ISO 14024 principles for global best practice in ecolabelling, so certification acts as solid evidence that your product or service meets world-class environmental standards. Our work to educate the market about the value of ecolabels goes hand-in-hand with building recognition of the positive work licensees are doing. With GECA certification also comes added marketing in line with connecting your environmentally preferable products or services to the wider community. GECA was the first scheme to be recognised under the Green Building Council of Australia’s (GBCA) Green Star Scheme. The Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA) also rewards projects that use GECA certified products. Both schemes are recognised by a growing number of companies and governments. GECA can help your product to stand out from the competition and verify your environmental claims. If you’re interested in certification, head to geca.org.au for more information.
INNOVATION CALL FOR ACTION: NMW 2014
More than 35 leaders in research and innova2on will come together at Australia’s largest manufacturing industry event, Na2onal Manufacturing Week 2014 (NMW) in Sydney from 13 -‐ 16 May, to share ideas for turning industry strengths into growth. NSW Minister for Finance & Services Andrew Constance, Australia's Chief Scien2st, Prof Ian Chubb, UNSW's Professor Veena Sahajwalla, prac2ce leaders from Australian Industry Group and the CSIRO's Future Manufacturing Flagship will be among speakers in the free-‐to-‐aWend Solu2ons Theatre program. Several of the high-‐proﬁle speakers -‐ including the Minister and Prof Chubb -‐ will be urging industry to embrace innova2on. As Professor Chubb comments, “Just doing more of what we do now will not be the answer. As a country, we need innova2on and ideas, and we need everyone to be thinking about how we can change.” The NMW Solu2ons Theatres will be housed on the exhibi2on ﬂoor -‐ presen2ng a rare opportunity for visitors to engage face-‐to-‐face with speakers in four separate ‘hubs’: R&D, Digital Technology, Workplace Safety/CleanTech and, in the Ausplas Hub, industrial plas2cs. Each Hub will feature presenta2ons and demonstra2ons, including technical insights and interac2ve discussion, on topics as diverse as photonics, robo2cs, bioplas2cs, nanotechnology, sustainability and new 3D prin2ng produc2on in metal. Speakers will also include areas of speciﬁc opportunity in presenta2ons such as: · The Power of Polyurethanes -‐ Owen Stam, Execu2ve Director and founder of Paciﬁc Urethanes · Bioplas2cs: What and Why? -‐ Warwick Hall, Vice President & Technical CommiWee,Australasian Bioplas2cs Associa2on
Other Solu2ons Theatre speakers will drill down to speciﬁc opportuni2es. For example, Lachlan Mullane, Partner at Hodgkinson McInnes Patents will speak on how Australian manufacturing companies can become smarter and globally compe22ve by using informa2on obtained from IP asset databases (which is ohen not available anywhere else) and combining this informa2on into the company’s already established compe2tor/market intelligence. Having the R&D Hub and Solu2ons Theatre program running alongside the regular trade exhibi2on -‐ and freely available to all visitors -‐ is designed to spark the deeper level of engagement that truly strengthens industry, comments NMW Exhibi2on Director, Anthony Reed. "NMW is bringing visitors face-‐to-‐face with the some of the brightest and best in our industry," comments Reed. "We have put together a range of speakers, each with new ideas, new strategies and new ways of thinking that, we believe, will inspire you toward more innova2on -‐ or perhaps speciﬁc improvements -‐ in your business. "Best of all, the Solu2ons Theatre programs will run at no charge, right on the exhibi2on ﬂoor at NMW, giving you the opportunity to really engage with industry leaders -‐ to hear their ideas, ask ques2ons face-‐to-‐face and even con2nue the conversa2on following their presenta2ons" Reed says. NMW 2014 is supported by Engineers Australia and NSW Trade & Investment, and will be held at Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park on 13 -‐ 16 May. Entry to both the exhibi2ons and the Solu2ons Theatre is free to trade visitors. For more informa2on, visit na2onalmanufacturingweek.com.au

NMW MAKES A DATE WITH CASEY CARDINIA
Australia's largest manufacturing industry event Na2onal Manufacturing Week (May 13 -‐ 16, Sydney Showgrounds) will see visitors and exhibitors get 'up close and personal' with a Networking Event on Day 1 (May 13, 4 -‐ 6pm) sponsored by the Casey Cardinia region. The Networking Event will set the tone for this year's event -‐ that is, giving par2cipants more opportuni2es to make new contacts and exchange ideas -‐ by giving par2cipants the opportunity to meet each other and spark ideas for ongoing exchanges. With over 275 exhibi2ng companies and thousands of visitors onsite on the day, the event will be one of the highlights of NMW 2014. The event is being sponsored by the Casey Cardinia region, ‘the place to grow your business in Melbourne’s South East’. The region brings together two Victorian Councils (the City of Casey and Cardinia Shire Council) to beWer market the region as an industry des2na2on to aWract new investments that will create jobs for the region's residents. The Casey Cardinia region is located in South East Melbourne, an area of 1680 kilometres with a total residen2al workforce of more than 156,000 and the third fastest-‐growing popula2on in Australia. The formal partnership underpinning the Casey Cardinia region is a rare instance of local government co-‐opera2on and is believed to be unique in Victoria and Australia. Through the regional partnership, the two Councils are working proac2vely with developers and the business community to facilitate the growth of local businesses, including facilita2ng

This -‐ and our other strengths -‐ makes Casey Cardinia Region a new fron2er of growth for the greater Melbourne area." NMW Exhibi2on Director, Anthony Reed commented that Casey Cardinia region’s par2cipa2on will beneﬁt sponsors and par2cipants in several ways. "We're very much looking forward to the Networking event. It will serve to showcase the strengths of the Casey Cardinia region -‐ and beyond that, will help spark the conversa2ons and engagement that help manufacturers develop new success strategies,"
Video interview with James Magee - National Sales Manager Operations Feedback System
DKSH are well aware the 2014 metals industry in general faces many challenges on many different levels. As we see our manufacturing industries undergo a major rationalisation in this country we see huge effects on such areas as the primary metal producers, foundry industry, car manufacturing etc which in turn is having a dramatic impact on many of our loyal SPECTRO users and as the AUD starts to climb once more we are not likely to see any major changes to this difficult working environment anytime soon !
SPECTRO recognises that these industries need to meet these challenges head to be even more competitive, more diverse and more flexible than ever before to remain viable and grow and that means, high performance, cost effective metal analysers producing accurate and reliable data day in and day out for their QC analysis and day to day monitoring of production.
In many instances your company relies on the performance of the metals analyser to ensure a smooth continuous turnover in the plant or laboratory. Just because business is down does not mean you can be complaisant about maintaining good reliable equipment in any level of the business.
The analytical equipment in the laboratory or factory can be just as important (if not more so) than any other major piece of equipment on the factory floor yet many tend to forget about the importance of these metal analysers. Only if/when the instrument falters do you see the true value of having a reliable instrument and the cost effectiveness of a new replacement when weighed up against the significant loss of revenue whilst the instrument is down waiting on parts and/or repair. Indeed many companies still run instruments that are 10 - 15 years old or more where the risk of permanent failure becomes exponential as the instrument ages.
In response to its customer needs today SPECTRO has announced its new 'NEW for OLD' discount offer where if you are considering replacing your old elemental analyser, SPECTRO in partnership with its distributor DKSH, will give you an immediate 10% discount off the recommended retail price. This offer is valid until the 30th September 2014 and covers all AS-OES, ICP-OES, ICP-MS, and ED-XRF instruments offered by SPECTRO. Please visit the SPECTRO website at http:// www.spectro.com/pages/e/index.htm for more details on their latest instrument models.

Top 5 Benefits of Additive Manufacturing
Since the introduction of 3D printing (additive manufacturing) in the 1980s, the benefits of producing small quantities of complex parts fast is well understood among manufacturing circles. Despite this, the industry is just beginning to understand exactly how transformative the technology will be to the future of manufacturing. As the technology becomes more sophisticated with the onset of new IT capabilities, and as acceptance and familiarity grows among mold manufacturers, the additional benefits will further reveal themselves. The following are the top five benefits of additive manufacturing that highlight where the technology is taking us today. 1. Freedom to design and innovate without penalties 2. Increased supply chain proficiency with ‘3D faxing’ 3. Support of green manufacturing initiatives 4. Bottom line improvements through factory physics 5. Get parts – fast Whatever the case, all of the stories are the same and most end with additive manufacturing acting as the bridge. When one supplier fell through for an automotive manufacturer who was building machines in Asia, they turned to additive manufacturing to produce 250 ABS thermoplastic pieces instantly in order to keep the factory running. Without these parts on demand enabling continuous production, the factory would have been idle for weeks. Similarly, for a government application, parts on demand meant saving lives of our armed forces when the production of military flashlights, used in battle, were put on hold because of retooling. With additive manufacturing available to help validate the new design, it allowed manufacturing assembly to kick in while tooling caught up. According to the purchasing manager, without additive manufacturing’s ability to redesign the part overnight, they would have had to wait 12 weeks. The demand to obtain parts quickly will continue to rise, especially as the industry becomes increasingly comfortable and familiar with enabling technologies like additive manufacturing. In fact, traditional manufacturing companies are already beginning to increase the number of onsite additive manufacturing machines to fill the void. It is only a matter of time before the most significant benefits of this technology are realized and the future of manufacturing is transformed into global digital factories.

First impressions count. The right packaging helps attract customers on first visual contact of your product. Not only does your product packaging need to be practical and functional for convenience and ease of use, it also needs to protect your product during transit, and to safely store contents from exposure to external conditions. Furthermore, your packaging can display important usage instructions for health and safety compliance, effectively grab attention with creative design, and has to power to convey your brand to attract new customers. Through innovation and design, steel packaging has been able to meet exactly these needs for manufacturers. About Steel Packaging “Steel holds a unique position as a sustainable packaging material because it is 100% recyclable. Steel cans are the most recycled form of packaging. A significant portion of all the steel in a can comes from recycled sources.” -- World Steel Association -Tin cans and steel packaging origins date back more than 200 years ago, when they were first used to store food during Napoleonic war times. Today, the Steel Can is a popular and every-day option for modern packaging as it provides many benefits: > It’s food safe and keeps contents fresh; > It endures against environmental factors. The majority of steel used in packaging is tinplate which is steel that has been coated with a layer of tin to prevent corrosion; > It’s safe and compliant with UN Dangerous Goods packaging codes; > It’s versatile and suitable for many different applications. Steel packaging is commonly used for food, beverages, promotional materials, aerosols, paints and chemicals, bottle tops and caps; > It’s a convenient, innovative and functional product packaging choice; > It’s attractive, with the ability to apply branding, coatings, and printing.

Only high quality, virgin materials are used in the manufacture of Techspan Plastic Welding Rods. Welding Rod De-reeler Boxes :A simple, effective way of keep track of your plastic welding rod type and helping to keep the welding rod clean Techspan has developed a new concept for housing your plastic welding rod. Its a very simple idea, that was developed to help customers to achieve two main objectives. 1. Keeps your welding rod clean – The welding rod de-reeler boxes are designed to help keep your welding rod clean. A small hole in the side of the dereeler allows the welding rod to be feed and de-reeled by simply drawing more rod through the exit hole. 2. Easy identification of your welding rod type - Plastic welding rods have in the past been supplied and packaged using a shrink film, which has resulted in many customers finding themselves with rolls of plastic welding rod without any indication of the material type. The De-reeler boxes help solve this problem by simply allowing the rod type and description labels to be attached to the outside
