The CBK Hardware

Development Trend for

More Than 100 Years

How CBK Hardware Development Has Changed Over 100 Years

For more than 100 years, Co Ban Kiat (CBK) Hardware Inc. has been the most

reliable distributor of hardware and home improvement items in the Philippines.

Headed by Johnny Cobankiat, the company aims to make the lives of Filipinos

better with a continuous supply of top-of-the-line home and hardware solutions.

Co Ban Kiat Hardware Inc. started as a humble store in 1920 in the heart of

Binondo, Manila’s Chinatown, with the belief to provide Filipinos access to quality

products. Through the years, it transformed into a huge corporation that is now

dubbed the “House of Home Improvements.”

Thanks to CBK Hardware, Filipinos no longer have to settle for cheap and lowquality

products when it comes to meeting their needs at home or in the office.

While the branded items they sell are expensive, the company wants more

Filipinos to add more value to their money with high-quality products from the

world’s most trusted brands. With this, you no longer need to buy the same

product over and over again.

But how did CBK Hardware Inc., who had the modest beginnings turn into one of

the prime suppliers of first-rate, life-improving hardware and home improvement

materials in the Philippines? Let’s look back in the Philippines’ history and how it

molded CBK Hardware’s mission through time.

It was on December 08, 1941, when Japan made a surprise attack in the Philippines

right after 10 hours of Pearl Harbor bombing. Began with an aerial strike, the

arrival, and the attack of Japanese ground troops on the north and south sides

of Manila. Because of the inability of the Philippine and American troops to fight

back and protect the city, the Japanese occupied Manila on January 2, 1942.

8


The war between the Japanese troops and the United States-Philippine forces in

the country lasted for several years until Japan’s formal surrender on September 2,

1945. By the time the fight was over, the Philippines suffered great loss with massive

physical destruction and an estimated million Filipinos were killed during the postwar

era and Manila was severely destroyed.

About CBK Hardware

For over one hundred years, a family’s surname has become synonymous with the country’s

biggest hardware supply company. Co Ban Kiat Hardware Incorporated of the Cobankiat family

has a regular client network of more than 1,500 industrial organizations, 1,600 traditional

community hardware stores, and 584 home building specialty chains of stores across Luzon

Visayas and Mindanao. This ever-growing conglomerate traces its humble roots to Manila

Chinatown, as a pioneer enterprise started by the family’s patriarch, Mr. Cobankiat, in 1920.

Despite the ruins of World War II, they got back in the business in 1948, rebuilding a storefront

from the very same spot where it was known for three decades.

While the Filipinos continued to rebuild their lives post-war, CBK Hardware saw the opportunity

to introduce the retail concept once unheard of in the hardware industry. Cobankiat Hardware

brought the first DIY business in Asia. The Hardware Workshop Store is the fruit of this endeavor.

CBK Hardware further cemented its legendary distribution channel with the creation of Coby’

Design Center in Edsa Shangri La in 1996, a specialty store that caters to the discriminating taste

of modern Filipinos.

In 1997, Mr. Johnny Cobankiat, the 4th generation Cobankiat leader, set another milestone for

the company when he brought the franchise of Ace Hardware USA to the Philippines and signed

up CBK Hardware as one of its major suppliers. This further expanded into delivering quality

world-class products nearer to families of Filipino overseas workers in the countryside.

A century’s excellence can quickly pass and guided by the vision to be the largest network

supplier of the biggest global brands in the hardware industry, CBK Hardware resolves to source

the best products to supply its customers anytime and every time.

Construction Accident Lawyers:

The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly

There are many construction accident lawyers

out there. Some are good, some are bad,

and some are ugly. It is important to know the

difference between the three before hiring one.

The good construction accident lawyers are

those who have experience and knowledge in

this area of law. They will be able to help you

get the compensation you deserve. They will

also work hard to make sure that your rights are

protected.

The bad construction accident lawyers are those

Pros and Cons of Hiring a

Construction Accident Lawyer

When you are involved in a construction

accident, there are many things to consider.

One of the first decisions you will have to make

is whether or not to hire a construction accident

lawyer. Here are some pros and cons to help

you decide:

PROS of hiring a construction

accident lawyer

When you are involved in a construction accident,

there are many things that need to be taken into

consideration. One of the most important things

is finding the right lawyer to represent you. Here

are some of the advantages of hiring a law firm:

• You need someone who understands the law

and can help you navigate through the legal

process. Construction accident lawyers have

experience dealing with insurance companies

and know how to get you the maximum amount

of compensation possible.

• They will also work tirelessly to make sure that

your rights are protected every step of the way.

• If you’ve been injured in a construction

accident, don’t try to go it alone. Hiring a

qualified construction accident lawyer will give

you the best chance at getting the outcome

you deserve.

• A construction accident lawyer can help you

navigate the complex legal system. They will

know the ins and outs of filing a personal injury

or wrongful death claim and can give you the

best chance at getting the compensation you

deserve.

• A lawyer can also help prove that your employer

was at fault for the accident. If they were

negligent in providing a safe work environment,

your lawyer can hold them accountable and get

you the justice you deserve.

CONS of hiring a construction accident lawyer

There are a few potential disadvantages to hiring

a construction accident law firm.

• One is that it can be expensive. If you don’t

have insurance or if your insurance doesn’t

cover legal fees, you may have to pay for your

lawyer out of pocket. Hiring a lawyer will likely

increase your overall costs associated with the

accident. You will have to pay for their fees as well

as any other associated costs, such as expert


witnesses. It’s also possible that your claim will

be rejected by your insurance company, which

means you’ll have to pay for the legal fees outof-pocket.

• Another downside is that hiring a lawyer can

take time. If you’re already dealing with injuries

and financial problems from your accident, you

may not have the time or energy to meet with

a lawyer and go through the process of filing a

lawsuit.

• Finally, there’s no guarantee that you’ll win your

case, even if you have a good lawyer. If the other

party has strong evidence against you or if the

jury believes their version of events, you could

end up losing your case and owing your lawyer

money for their time.

What to consider before hiring a

construction accident lawyer

If you or a loved one has been injured in a

construction accident, it is important to consider

hiring a construction accident lawyer. Here are

a few things to keep in mind when making your

decision:

1. The severity of your injuries:

If you have suffered serious injuries, you will

likely need the help of an experienced lawyer to

get the compensation you deserve.

2. The cause of the accident:

Was the accident caused by negligence on the

part of the property owner, contractor, or another

party? An experienced lawyer will be able to

investigate and determine who is at fault.

3. The insurance companies

involved:

Insurance companies often try to lowball

accident victims of construction site accidents.

An experienced lawyer will know how to

negotiate with them to get you the compensation

you deserve.

How to find a construction

accident lawyer

If you or a loved one has been injured in a

construction work accident, it is important to

find a lawyer who specializes in this type of

case. Here are some tips on how to find the right

construction accident lawyer for you:

1. Ask around.

If you know anyone who has been in a similar

situation, they may be able to recommend a

good lawyer.

2. Do your research.

Once you have a few names, look them up online

and read reviews from past clients.

3. Schedule a consultation.

Meet with the lawyers on your list and ask them

questions about your case. This will help you

get a feel for their personality and whether or not

you would be comfortable working with them.

4. Make your decision.

After meeting with several lawyers, it is time to

choose the one you want to hire. Do your best to

weigh the pros and cons of each candidate. 5.

Get started. Once you have hired your lawyer, it

is time to get to work on your case!

2. Being hit by falling objects

This is another very common type of accident on

construction sites. Workers can be hit by tools

or materials that fall from above, or they can be

hit by vehicles or machinery that are moving

around the site.


3. Being caught in between objects

This type of accident can occur when workers are caught in between two pieces of equipment or

two walls that are being moved. This can often result in serious crush injuries.

4. Electrocution accidents

This is another very common type of accident on construction sites. Construction workers can be

electrocuted by faulty power lines, or they can be injured by damaged electrical equipment.

5. Injuries caused by nails

Construction workers who are working with wood can be injured by the nails that are used to hold

the wood together. These can poke through and cause injury or they can fall out and hit someone.

6. injuries caused by an equipment malfunction

Equipment can malfunction for a variety of reasons, including faulty construction and workmanship

and poor maintenance. Some equipment malfunctions can cause serious injury.

7. Injuries while transporting

injuries caused by accidents that occur during the transportation of materials and equipment on

and off the construction site. Construction workers are at risk of being injured in a number of

different ways when they are transporting materials or equipment on and off the job site.

8. Hazardous substances

injuries caused by working with hazardous substances and materials. Many construction workers

are exposed to hazardous substances and materials on the job site, including lead paint, asbestos,

and radon gas. These substances can cause serious illness if they are ingested or inhaled in large

enough quantities.

9. Heavy machinery injuries

injuries caused by working with construction equipment or heavy machinery. Construction workers

are at risk of being injured by heavy machinery that is used to build and repair buildings and roads.

10. Chemical burns.

Construction workers who are working on industrial equipment are at risk of being burned by

chemicals that leak or spill on the job site.

11. Fires and explosions

Construction workers are at risk of being burned, killed, or injured in a fire or explosion.

What types of construction accident cases that your construction

accident lawyer might lose?

There are a number of different types of construction accidents that your lawyer might lose. These

include cases where the worker was not wearing proper safety gear, was not following safety

procedures, or was working in an area that was not properly marked off or secured. In these cases,

it may be difficult to prove that the employer was at fault for the accident.

Other types of construction accident cases that your lawyer might lose include those where the

victim does not have enough evidence to prove their case or where the statute of limitations has

expired.

How can you win construction accident cases?

Construction workers are often injured on the job. If you’ve been injured in a construction accident,

you may be able to win your case by proving that the accident was caused by someone else’s

negligence.


To win your case, you’ll need to prove that the other party was at fault for the accident. You’ll also

need to show that you suffered damages as a result of the accident. If you can prove these things,

you may be able to recover compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and

suffering.

If you’ve been injured in a construction accident, contact an experienced personal injury attorney

to discuss your case. An attorney can help you gather evidence and build a strong case so that

you have the best chance of recovering the compensation you deserve.

Who will pay if you are injured on a construction site?

If you are injured on a construction site, who will pay for your medical bills and lost wages? The

answer may surprise you.

In most cases, if you are injured on a construction site, your employer’s workers’ compensation

insurance will cover your medical bills and a portion of your lost wages. However, there are some

exceptions.

If you are injured due to the negligence of another party (such as a contractor or sub-contractor),

you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against that party. You may also be able to recover

damages from your own homeowner’s or renter’s insurance policy if the accident occurred on your

property.

If you are injured on a construction site, it is important to speak with an experienced personal injury

attorney to determine all of your potential sources of recovery.

Who is responsible for injured construction workers?

Injured construction workers are often left wondering who is responsible for their injuries. Is it the

construction company? The construction project manager? The safety inspector? The answer is

not always clear.

In most cases, the construction company is responsible for the safety of its workers. They are

required to provide a safe work environment and to ensure that all safety protocols are followed.

However, there are times when other parties may be at fault.

For example, if a safety inspector fails to identify a hazard or if a project manager ignores safety

concerns, they could be held liable for any injuries that occur as a result. Injured workers should

always consult with an experienced attorney to determine who is responsible for their injuries.

What is construction site personal injury?

Construction sites are one of the most dangerous places to work. Every year, thousands of workers

are injured in construction site accidents. Some of these accidents are minor, but others can be

life-changing or even fatal.

If you’ve been injured in a construction accident, you may be wondering what your options are.

In this article, we’ll discuss construction site personal injury law and how it can help you get the

compensation you deserve.

Construction site personal injury law is a type of law that helps workers who have been injured on

the job get compensated for their injuries. This includes medical expenses, lost wages, and pain

and suffering. If you’ve been injured in a construction accident, you may be able to file a personal

injury claim against the company responsible for the accident.

What is the common compensation for construction accident cases?

Construction accidents can lead to a wide range of injuries, from minor cuts and bruises to more

serious injuries, such as traumatic brain injury or paralysis. Compensation for construction accident

cases will depend on the severity of the injury, but there are some common types of compensation

that are often awarded.

Medical expenses are one of the most common types of compensation in construction accident

cases. This can include both current and future medical expenses, as well as any rehabilitation or

therapy that is needed. Lost wages are another common type of compensation, as many people

who are injured in construction accidents are unable to work while they recover. Pain and suffering

damages may also be awarded in some cases, which can help cover the emotional trauma that

comes with an accident.

Who can file a construction worker personal injury lawsuit?


Construction workers are susceptible to a variety of injuries on the job site. If you or a loved one

has been injured while working construction, you may be wondering if you can file a personal injury

lawsuit.

In general, any worker who is injured on the job may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit

against their employer. However, there are some special rules that apply to construction workers.

For example, in some states, construction workers may not be able to sue their employers if they

are injured due to an inherent risk of the job.

If you or a loved one has been injured while working in construction, it is important to speak with

an experienced personal injury attorney to find out if you have a viable claim. An attorney can help

you understand the applicable laws and regulations and will fight for your rights to compensation.

How to determine if the construction worker has a valid claim?

When a construction worker is injured on the job, they may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit

against their employer. There are many factors that need to be considered in order to determine if

the worker has a valid claim.

The first factor is whether the employer was negligent in providing a safe work environment. If the

employer did not take proper precautions to prevent accidents, they may be held liable for the

worker’s injuries.

Another factor that needs to be considered is whether the worker was following all safety guidelines.

If the worker was not following safety procedures, they may not be able to collect damages from

their employer.

Lastly, it needs to be determined if the worker’s injuries were caused by defective equipment. If the

equipment was defective, the manufacturer of the equipment may be held liable for the worker’s

injuries.

What to expect when you file a construction injury claim?

If you’ve been injured while working on a construction site, you may be wondering what to expect

when you file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits. Here’s a look at the process and what

you can expect.

When you file a construction injury claim, the first thing that will happen is that your employer will be

notified. Your employer is required to report any work-related injuries to their workers’ compensation

insurer within 24 hours.

Once your employer has reported your injury, the insurance company will open up a claim and

begin investigating. The insurance adjuster will likely contact you to get your side of the story and

gather any relevant medical records.

The adjuster will then make a determination about whether or not your claim is valid and whether

or not you are eligible for benefits. If your claim is approved, you’ll start receiving benefits for lost

wages and medical expenses.

Can a non-immigrant worker file a construction accident claim?

If you are a non-immigrant worker who has been injured in a construction accident, you may be

wondering if you can file a claim. The answer is yes, you can.

There are many different types of claims that can be filed after a construction accident. The most

There are many potential hazards on construction sites, so it’s important for workers to be aware of

the dangers and take precautions. OSHA requires employers to provide a safe working environment,

and they must also train employees on how to safely perform their job duties.

If an accident does occur, the employer is required to report it to OSHA within eight hours. Employees

have the right to file a complaint with OSHA if they feel their workplace is unsafe. If an investigation

finds that an employer violated OSHA regulations, they can be fined or even shut down.

Three tweaks for an

environmentally friendly

construction

You only need to switch on a news channel to see some of the devastation

happening in the world as the result of human action. Some believe it is

impossible to combine caring for the environment with the construction

industry. However, there genuinely are ways in which you can make

adjustments to be more considerate towards the world, leaving a much less

severe footprint in the long run. Continue reading for three tweaks for you to try.

1. Materials and Construction

When it comes to the materials used in new construction, sourcing things that are

local will be advantageous. Not only will it mean that fewer miles are traveled to

deliver the goods to the construction site, but if you were to run out, a replacement

would likely be much quicker to obtain. Furthermore, choosing renewable

materials, such as timber, is also advisable. Of course, it is vital to weigh up the

pros and cons.

On occasions, a renewable material may not be the best option as it could

ultimately be less energy efficient, leading to a more significant negative impact

on the environment. On paper, sometimes things look more eco-friendly than they

are in reality. Thorough research will help.

68


Using the right material can also

give you a quicker turnaround time

for construction. This may not seem

like it has anything to do with being

environmental, but fast construction is

less intense with resources. The faster

you can finish a job, the less pollution

your project will have caused. Using an

experienced UK handrail supplier like

Ezi Klamp for your railings will speed up

construction since they don’t require an

expert to install and can be done in far

less time than regular railings.

2. Energy

Society as a whole is over-reliant on the

use of fossil fuels for energy. However,

this has got to change as it is not

sustainable nor does the output have

a positive effect on the environment.

The energy sources employed for

new constructions should be carefully

decided. Solar panels are a great way

of heating water in a new property.

There are sometimes schemes available

to make the total cost cheaper, so

again, it is best to do your research

before making a final decision for the

development. Ground source heat

pumps have been popular of late, being

able to heat during the cooler winter

months and the opposite during the

warmer spells. Air source heat pumps

work in a similar way offering another

alternative.

In addition to the energy sources for

the finished development, the methods

used during construction ought to be a

consideration, too. Cherry pickers. With

hybrid technology could be utilized

in a bid to lower the impact on the

environment considerably.

3. Water

Drainage systems and water filtration

are two things that ought to be

carefully considered to avoid having

an unnecessary negative effect on

the world around us. If done carefully,

water can be reused in other areas of

construction, ensuring that as little as

possible goes to waste. Positioning

drains to allow the water to lead straight

to garden areas can be a massive help,

allowing rainwater to be reused rather

than water from the tap, which could

send water bills rocketing as well as

being wasteful.

How to manage business

processes in a building

material manufacturing

company?

Business processes are the cornerstone of every company in every sector,

regardless of the industry they operate in. Their efficient functioning is particularly

important in the case of manufacturing companies, which tend to require numerous

improvements in this area. They should pay particular attention to the management

of their business processes, focusing on using state-of-the-art IT solutions that will facilitate

their optimization and automation, as well as management of documentation and organization

of daily work.

What is business process management all about?

The concept of Business Process Management (or BPM for short) is a modern approach to

managing the operations of a company or organization, comprising identification, analysis,

72


optimization and measurement of processes using a special system of measures and

indicators. In a word, BPM focuses on optimizing and automating business processes. For a

company to operate efficiently and grow rapidly, it is essential that all the processes carried

out as part of its daily work are optimized, transparent and efficient.

A proper implementation of the key assumptions of BPM ensures a cohesive and efficient

flow of information within the organization, increases the efficiency and effectiveness of

the performed tasks and allows to adjust all aspects of the company’s functioning to the

customers’ needs. Without efficient and skillful business process management, achieving

business goals and building competitive advantage can be virtually impossible. Business

process management is also the key to optimizing operating costs, as well as improving

productivity and human resources management.

What modern BPM class systems should manufacturing companies use?

Business process management can be implemented with the help of BPM-class IT systems –

highly advanced software created with automation of business processes in mind, supporting

electronic task, information and document workflows, as well as monitoring the course of

processes carried out by the company. Some of the most advanced solutions of this kind are

based on agile methodologies and interactive approach to providing enterprise IT solutions,

thanks to which they enable testing various ideas for optimizing processes and growing the

business. By offering this feature, they help companies test new solutions and evaluate their

functionality without taking unnecessary risks, in line with the Rapid Prototyping and Failureas-a-Service

approaches.

Business process management in a manufacturing company can also be implemented

thanks to innovative low-code platforms – fully-featured and highly-advanced IT solutions that

enable automating business processes without having to use any programming languages,

while allowing for using code where it is justified from the technological, financial or time

standpoint. What is more, everybody can use a low-code platform without any coding skills

to quickly build business applications using drag&drop method and test them right away. The

best low-code platforms available on the market, which are designed to manage business

processes, also offer the possibility to implement instant changes in applications already

deployed across the organization with immediate effect, thanks to which they perfectly

respond to the needs of the company.

Everything You Need to Know

About Construction Project

Management

Starting a construction business is not

just about technical knowledge on

building and clinching large-scale

projects. It’s also about how well you

manage each construction project you get

your hands on, no matter how big or small.

That’s why construction project management

is an essential part of the industry.

What is Construction Project

Management (CPM)?

CPM is the supervision of pre-production,

production, and production processes of a

construction project. Construction project

managers see to it that each project has

proper planning and that these plans are

executed smoothly. The goal of CPM is to

deliver client needs to the fullest or at least

be able to provide everything stipulated in

the contract.

A construction project manager deals with

all lines of operations and ties them together

to be able to turn the project into a reality.

In other words, they work their magic behind

the scenes, but even if they don’t get their

hands dirty with actual construction, they

know the project from start to finish.

Roles and Duties of A Construction

Project Manager (CPM)

Hire a general contractor

One of the first things a CPM needs to do is to

hire or partner up with a general contractor. He

is responsible for finding a general contractor

that is licensed or sees to it that the contractor

gets the required continuing education to

renew their contractor license. Most of the

time, CPMs are either part of the contractor’s

company or they already have ties with trusted

and reliable contractors that they know can

deliver a good job.

76


So in this case, networking and good connections

are important to ensure that the manager has

the best team for the project.

Liaise with clients

Of course, there is no project to manage if a

CPM cannot talk to clients and snag a deal with

them. Clients won’t always be ready with what

they want when the need arises, so a good CPM

can help them fill in the blanks for that matter.

At the same time, CPMs must also keep their

lines open for adjustments and other requests

that the clients may have during the course of

the project up until completion.

Create a working budget

Another important consideration for CPMs

is having a working budget for your entire

project. Initially, CPMs have to prepare for a

budget estimate that is required for a pitch

or project initiation. Funding is an essential

part of construction work and both clients and

contractors need to agree on a specific amount

for the job order to push through. But one must

understand that budgets change depending on

the availability of supply, possible delays, and

unforeseeable issues. It is part of the job of a

CPM to earmark funds for this specific purpose.

Deal with technicalities

The technicalities of a construction project

may include state and federal requirements,

construction permits, and insurance that are all

necessary for the construction project to begin.

Usually, CPMs also sit down with the contractor

to talk about all possible issues that may arise

during construction and solve them before they

take place.

Schedule construction activities

Once the CPM finishes dealing with every

technicality, it’s time to create a schedule of

construction activities. Some CPMs include

planning and meetings with clients in their

calendar, apart from actual construction dates.

This schedule must also be comprehensive and

include deliveries and deadlines that must be

met.

However, as a CPM, you should be prepared

for possible delays and have a contingency

plan when push comes to shove. Proper

communication is vital at this point, especially

with the ongoing pandemic. Your clients will

understand slight delays in completion but not

without prior warning.

To keep up with the demands of the work, CPMs

have several tools and technologies they can

use to stay on top of their game.

The Bottom Line

Construction project management is a critical

component of the entire construction industry.

Without managers, no construction project can

proceed as planned. But the value of CPMs

lies in their ability to connect and communicate

with people as well as stay organized and on

top of any situation. However, each member

of construction operations, from clients to

contractual laborers, is important for as long as

they fulfill their duties and responsibilities to the

best of their abilities.

Urethane vs Plastic: Material

of Strength

As finite resources become more expensive, manufacturers are looking for ways

to improve their products with reusable materials. This begs the question about

whether manufacturers should look to urethane or plastic for their products. Plastics

are made of carbon and hydrogen molecules, while urethane is a bit more complex.

Urethanes are often referred to as plastics, but they are not.

How Plastics and Urethanes Differ

Stated by a urethane manufacturer, plastics include commonly used materials like

polyethylene, nylon, and PVC. Meanwhile, urethanes use a flexible polymer molecule that

makes the material an elastomer. This is why plastics must be injection molded, and urethane

can be cast molded or reaction injection molded. Because of their chemical makeup, plastics

will break when pushed beyond their limitations. But, urethanes usually return to their cast or

injected forms.

80


Durability and Flexibility

Urethane is a more durable and flexible product than any plastic. While plastics do last a long

time, products made of plastic will wear out before a urethane product does. They are also

more likely to break, abrade, or deteriorate before urethanes will.

One of the most unique aspects of urethane is the material’s elastomeric ability. This means

that urethanes can be stretched or extended significantly. And when released, they will return

to their present size. Plastics cannot do this. In fact, if you attempt to stretch or extend a plastic

piece, it will remain stretched, or it will break.

Abrasion Resistance

Another impressive quality of urethane is the material’s resistance to abrasion. Urethane wheels

and rollers will last significantly longer than the same parts made of plastic. Manufacturers

who use urethane parts in their machines are satisfied with the lifespan of the urethane parts

because they do not break down when friction breaks down other materials.

Cost Similarities

Making parts from plastic or urethane have relatively similar costs. But, what cost less is making

the casts for urethane products. Most of the casts are made out of silicon, which is inexpensive.

However, plastic injection molding is not expensive, but the parts made this way do not last as

long as urethane ones do. So, in the long run, urethane parts are more cost-effective simply

because they have a longer lifespan than their plastic counterparts.

Load Bearing

Urethanes have incredible load-bearing performances. Plastics tend to break when they are

pushed to their limits, but urethanes often surprise engineers with home much they can tolerate.

Their elastomer quality gives them better shock absorption when impacts reach higher levels.

Temperature and Friction

When urethane is put under the stress of heat and friction, it continues to perform. Of course,

like all products, there are temperature limits. One of those is the low-temperature threshold,

and urethanes will continue to respond in temperatures that reach -60°F and more.

Sound and Noise

Urethanes are frequently used to dampen noise. For example, polyurethane foam is often

injected into car doors to reduce road noise. While plastic isn’t necessarily a noisy material,

urethanes are generally quiet because they absorb noise. Plastic can be noisy, especially

crinkly bags and rigid toys made from the material.

A Hypercar Beyond

Hypercars: Project Chaos

And The Visionary Engineer

At The Helm

The first hypercar to be made in Greece has been unveiled. Spyros Panopoulos

is preparing to launch Project Chaos, a car so powerful that he claims it goes a

step beyond the hypercar: this, he says, is an ‘ultracar’. Supercars, hypercars,

megacars and ultracars are all impressive feats of engineering that help shape the

future, but what’s special about Panopoulos’ vision, and why is Project Chaos different.

Introducing Project Chaos

Project Chaos will be available in two versions. Both models have a 4 liter V10 engine

made up of 40 valves and 20 injectors, and heavily featuring titanium in their design.

The first variant will contain two 68mm carbon turbos reaching 2000 hp and a limit of

11.000 rpm. The second will be paired with two 78mm carbon turbos, which will reach a

staggering 3000 hp and have a limit of 12.000 rpm. The connecting rods and pistons in

84


the first variant will be made from titanium; in

the second variant, these components will be

carbon fiber. This version is expected to reach

a speed of 500+ kmh, placing it in competition

with the leading models for speed.

Perhaps what’s most surprising about Project

Chaos, however, is that Panopoulos intends it

to be not a racing car, but an everyday city

car. “We want it to be suitable for the everyday

commute and for all categories of drivers,” he

said. This is potentially a game-changer for the

auto industry, and customers could see cars

like this on professional industry analysis

pages and review sites when searching for

everyday vehicles in the future.

A Visionary Engineer

Spyros Panopoulos has an impressive back

catalog, holding records in dragster racing

with his own custom-built cars. He has built

a 2000 hp Lamborghini and, most recently,

completely rebuilt an EVO entirely on his own.

The initial vision behind Project Chaos was to

create a car for himself — he had no intention

of marketing a hypercar. His view that the

term ‘hypercar’ is widely misunderstood and

his belief that current hypercars are lacking,

however, led him to build a car that would show

the world the true potential of the hypercar.

A Dedicated Team

Project Chaos is entirely built by nine engineers,

using parts custom-made in house. The

majority of auto manufacturers use parts from

other companies, but Panopoulos’ company,

Spyros Panopoulos Automotive, prides itself

on its engineering capabilities. Every part, from

the exhaust to the turbos is made in-house.

The entire Spyros Panopoulos Automotive

team is currently just 22 people strong, with

nine engineers entirely dedicated to Project

Chaos. However, once production of the car

begins, it is expected that the company will

expand significantly.

A number of extreme hypercars have been

unveiled in recent years, but Project Chaos

stands out from the crowd. Not only is it

a spectacular feat of engineering, but it

represents a respect for craftsmanship and

design that is rarely seen in the industry, and it

clearly illustrates the ambitious vision of a man

determined to show the world what a hypercar

really is.

Training Engineering Interns

to Be Productive Members of

Your Company

Internships have long been seen as a way for companies to get cheap labor. Unfortunately,

this abuse of the system has been called out many times and it’s starting to scare away new

recruits that have a lot of potential. Engineering and manufacturing firms of all sizes need to

look for ways to establish a healthy company culture and a team that meshes well together,

and the best way to achieve this level of cooperation is to introduce engineering interns to your

team and have them learn as they meld with the team.

So here are a couple of tips on how to train an engineering intern to be productive member of

your company from the very first day.

Develop a strong internship program

A strong internship program will help attract talented individuals from across the country.

From offering accommodation such as dorms to giving them employee-like benefits, a strong

internship program is a must if you want to attract the best of the best.

88


Transparency is important to gain their trust

During the internship, it’s vital that you remain as transparent as possible to help establish a

sense of trust between you and your engineering interns. You shouldn’t hide things from them

and you should be clear about their position in your workplace and the opportunities that you

can offer them. Hiding anything will remove any sense of trust and will be problematic in the

future.

Invest in their skills and education if they show promise

Investing in your employees is a must for any productive business, but you should also

consider investing in interns that show promise. Online universities such as KUO offer fantastic

technical degrees that can help teach your employees practical skills. Investing in these types

of courses improves the technical skill of your engineering interns while also solidifying their

loyalty to your brand.

Don’t hesitate to give them homework

Homework can sound a little demeaning, but for an engineering or manufacturing-focused

business, it’s important to give interns “homework” to help them understand your workflow and

processes so they can easily integrate with your team.

Understand their skills and what they bring to the table

Engineering interns can come from a variety of different backgrounds and it’s your responsibility

as an employer to understand what they excel at. By understanding their history, you can

assign them a role that best suits their experience, but can also help them grow their skills to

become a productive member of your team.

Focus on both cultural immersion and their technical skills

At the end of the day, skills can be taught to an intern which makes them more valuable to a

company. However, their personality and attitude are two things which cannot easily be altered.

That’s why it’s important to hold on to the engineering interns that you feel can contribute to

your company and teach them skills later on. However, you should also be looking at their

potential and ability to learn new things at an accelerated pace. The perfect intern should

show promise in both fields, not just one.

The Main Principles To

Adhere To When Moving

Abroad

If you have made a decision to start a new life elsewhere, your mind may be

spiralling out of control with all the regulations and rules that may come with

finding a new life. Moving to another country often takes thorough checks and

immigration papers. You may want to consider an indefinite leave to remain

application or whatever suits your current situation; again there are always

people who can assist you. Here are some principles that you should adhere to

in order to make your transition a much smoother one.

About a month or two in advance, preparations for the transition

should begin. These preparations include:

Health, life and travel insurance: One of the considerations that arises in

any transition is the issue of health. Medical insurance is different from travel

insurance, it contains extensive and comprehensive coverage in routine and

emergencies. The health services used abroad are usually different from the

public health system used in your own country. The difference is reflected in

the perception of the service, the costs of medical treatments, their availability

and the need to receive service from providers who speak a foreign language

(if needed). They may have different mentalities and priorities than the country

you now live in.

92


Medical examinations and vaccines: There are some countries that require

vaccinations to enter. Of course currently there are no laws that state a Covid-19

vaccine is needed, but vaccinations such as yellow fever and typhoid may occur

in certain countries. The decision is made on the basis of the passenger’s immune

status, destination country, travel conditions and length of stay. It is advisable to

contact a travelers’ clinic as soon as possible at least 6 weeks before the trip. It is

also recommended to perform a comprehensive medical examination before the trip

for the whole family and to keep the test sheet handy.

Passports and residence visas: Make sure that the passports of all family members

are valid and are not likely to run out within the first year abroad. It is worthwhile to

evaluate the renewal of passports whose expiration date is close in order to avoid

running around in the destination country, certainly during the initial adjustment period.

It is also recommended to leave the country when you have legal residence visas for

the whole family - it is not enough to settle for a tourist visa. It is also recommended

to check the location of the renewal of passports and visas in advance and to verify

the existence of all the required documents in advance.

Bank account in the destination country: It is likely that you will be able to open

a bank account upon arrival in the destination country, but you must still have full

access to your money. It is recommended to check this first to ensure you do not

encounter any issues.

Moving abroad can be stressful but if you ensure that you are prepared, then things

should be much smoother running and you can learn to enjoy the change much

quicker, with less fuss.

Maintenance Tips To Enhance

Productivity For Your

Manufacturing Business

96

Regardless of how big or small your manufacturing business is, you

probably already know that even one day of plant unavailability due to

machinery breakdowns can be a massive cost loss. What’s more, you

may even lose substantial sales as customers are likely to go elsewhere,

and they may not return. So, to ensure your business is never down, we have

listed a few essential maintenance tips that will keep your machinery operating

while also boosting overall productivity.

Replace Components With Higher Quality Materials

Regardless of the specific type of machinery, all machinery is built from various

components; you can replace some parts to enhance overall quality and durability.

Therefore, you could consider switching to round carbon fiber tubing in place of

steel as steel is heavier and might weigh down machines, slowing them down

and causing more wear and tear. However, before pulling machinery apart, it

is best to have a professional service evaluate the best approach to upgrading

your machinery to enhance performance and productivity.

Schedule Ongoing Maintenance

Instead of waiting for your machinery to break down and hoping that it doesn’t,

you should create a scheduled maintenance plan. Ongoing maintenance is the


best method of avoiding a breakdown

as a maintenance team will be able to

identify issues that you and your workers

would not be able to. You should also

consider the recommended timeline

for maintenance when creating your

schedule. When creating a maintenance

schedule, you should also be sure to opt

for a reliable maintenance service with an

excellent service rating.

Clean And Lubricate All Equipment

Regularly

The vast majority of heavy machinery

should be cleaned and appropriately

lubricated daily. All the moving parts will

need proper lubrication to work as they

should, so your team of workers should

know that cleaning and lubrication is a

big part of the everyday work schedule.

It is also wise to also invest in quality

lubrication, as quality lubricants will

prevent damage to your machines. Some

machinery requires specific lubricants,

so be sure that you are always using the

right products to keep your machines in

pristine condition.

Maintain Workplace Cleanliness

And Organization

Manufacturing is an industry often noted

as a high-risk work environment due

to the specifics of the workplace. While

maintaining a clean and organized

workplace will reduce injuries and

enhance your health and safety rating,

the effort will also ensure your machinery

is less likely to break down. Because a

messy workplace means that debris and

contagions could become issues for

your machinery, keeping things clean

and organized will protect both your

employees and your machinery while

also enhancing overall productivity.

Workplace layout is also important

for cleanliness, organization, and

productivity.

Preventative and proactive maintenance

measures are the best way to avoid

unplanned downtime that can significantly

cost your business sales and profits.

What’s more, manufacturing machinery

and most heavy-duty machinery is not

exactly the most affordable types of

machines out there. Keeping up with

preventative and proactive maintenance

should be a priority as it will also help you

avoid the costly issue of replacing your

machines if they are damaged beyond

repair.

The Benefits of Having

a STEM Tutor Blog

100

Top-notch bloggers are earning their living by writing on different niches

such as buying guides, health and fitness, gadgets and tech, and whatnot.

Likewise, your passion for teaching can further help you and the students

as well by initiating a tutor blog. Nowadays every single piece of information

is being accessed at the fingertips so why not bridge the gap between tutors and

students in the digital world? Whether you’re a tutor in Melbourne, California,

London, or any part of the world, your very own tutor blog can help you reach a

broader audience.

Thus, the following advantages of blogging in science, engineering, technology

and maths can help clear up your confusion:

Reach an International Audience

Let’s shed a light on the point we just mentioned above, starting up your tutor

blog can help you reach a broader and international audience. You can spread


your knowledge around the globe and have fun simultaneously. Interacting

with students of different nationalities will give you exposure to their culture,

customs, and values. You can also earn in the international currency which will

benefit you even more if they have a stable economy.

Be the Owner of Your Content

Be it Chemistry, Maths, Physics, and so on, I have seen a plethora of content

of teachers taking a nice journey around the social media platforms without

acknowledging the rights to its owners. You simply lose ownership and control

of your content this way.

Having a tutor blog gives you your personal space where you are the owner,

and you can post however you like. Such kind of platform also allows you to

keep an eye on the analytics such as which of your content performed well in

comparison to the others. This helps you to improve your writing, content and

keep you motivated as well.

Market Your Services and Skills

By using the right and relevant keywords, you can market your services.

Providing valuable and easy-to-read information to the students on different

subjects is also going to give a perspective to them on your teaching methods

and content. Everyone’s first step to their problem is to Google it, especially the

students, and if your tutor blog ranks on Google or any other search engine,

you have the chance to be recognized in the marketplace.

Also, ensure to keep your readers engaged, so they don’t drift away. Use a

simple yet engaging writing style to keep them interested and before posting

the final draft, look out if there’s any room for improvement.

Get Instant and Unfiltered Feedback

Blogging is such a platform that allows different readers to post their comments

to let the writer know about their thoughts. Most blogs also let you post

comments anonymously if a regular reader is too shy to get in the spotlight.

Overall, this allows your readers to give instant and straightforward feedback

on your content quality and writing skills and some of them even ask you to

create content of their choice.

This can also help you to tailor your content according to the needs and

preference of your readers, so they know you care about them, and they can

become your regular students.
