Liebherr, the manufacturer of gear and automation technology, is showing off a vision system that provides accurate part recognition at 0.5-millimeter accuracy. The vision system is designed to be used with an eight-axis robot arm to enable picking components from transport bins up to a meter deep. It uses a combination of blue laser and camera imaging to achieve this level of accuracy. The accurate vision system can enable robots to identify parts quickly while reducing the risk of collision, enabling the manufacturer to adapt the automation system to a variety of different jobs.

According to the company, more and more small manufacturers are investing in flexible automation systems that enable them to dedicate the talents of their workers towards more complicated tasks. This enables shop owners to benefit from their employees’ skills, while the workers can further develop their abilities. 

Attendees can see the Liebherr vision system on display at the company’s booth.

Another Bipartisan Buy America Bill Surfaces on Capitol Hill

Tammy Baldwin and Mike Braun in the Senate, John Garamendi in the House are sponsoring the Made in America Act.

We’ve got some good news for people who like proposed bipartisan legislation that would expand coverage for the domestic procurement rules that govern federal spending on infrastructure!

Sen. Tammy Baldwin – from Wisconsin, a Democrat – and Sen. Mike Braun – from Indiana, a Republican – have reintroduced the Made in America Act, which would identify “federal programs that fund infrastructure projects not currently subject to Buy America standards” and ensure “that materials used in these federal programs are domestically produced.” The bill would also require that the U.S. Department of Commerce, while setting the standards on which construction materials will be considered American-made, to ensure that their manufacturing processes support American jobs.

It has a sponsor in the House, too – Rep. John Garamendi (D-CA) – who is a longtime advocate for domestic manufacturing.

Garamendi has a long record of supporting legislation that would help generate more domestic manufacturing activity and the jobs that go with it, and this isn’t the first time this year that Baldwin and Braun have found themselves cosponsoring legislation like this. They were among a group of senators in January with their names on a bill that would tighten waiver requirements for projects subjected to Buy America rules.

Regarding today’s Made in America Act? It’s good legislation that will create more manufacturing jobs in the United States, which is why the Alliance for American Manufacturing has officially endorsed it.

You can find the Senate bill’s text here.

Anything I can do about my late order?

Republished by Plato

Firstly, I know it’s a long shot. The manufacturer is in Sailkot, Pakistan. There are no contracts in place and the only type of documents I’ve received from this manufacturer are invoices. It’s a mistake I will never make again but I stupidly assumed that I could trust this guy after making a successful order with him in the past but it was a much smaller order.

I made an order for clothing roughly around 6 to 7 months ago and everything was going smoothly for around 1 to 2 months before he started taking days to reply and being very vague with his replies.

I know the clothes are being made because I will get the odd bad quality picture to show work is being done but the excuses this man has come out with is unbelievable. In this space of time some of his excuses have ranged from having family issues which have resulted in a divorce, having covid twice and even a middle man who was transporting my clothing from one vendor to another, just disappearing and stealing all of my clothes.

The ETA given at the start of the order was 7 to 10 days. After 7 months I’m nearly pulling my hair and feel completely helpless whilst my business fades away. There is a Chamber Of Commerce in Sailkot, Pakistan which is seems to be some form of authority over Manufacturers in that city. I’ve been in touch with them about my situation and they are willing to help but the manufacturer doesn’t seem fazed by this and actually told me I can get in touch with them but it’s not going to speed up my order.

I can’t go through the bank either because I paid through an app called Azimo.

Is there anything else I can do or am I just completely stuck here?

Thanks in advance.

Edit: I’m in England.
