    The new initiative is designed for products that require specialist transport and storage, such as temperature controlled foods, biological pharmaceuticals and sensitive life science and high-tech products. By agreeing to place Parsyl’s sensors on prescribed shipments, participants may benefit from expedited settlement and reduced claims costs, tailored deductibles and risk mitigation insights based on new data.

    The $16bn marine cargo market has been unprofitable for years, with rising loss and expense ratios leading to market wide reforms. Coverage remains largely undifferentiated due to a lack of agility in the underwriting process, yet new sources of data and information are allowing insurers to reshape how they understand risk.

    “As a market, it is imperative that we embrace new technology solutions that can lower costs and improve risk selection,” said Trevor Maynard, Head of Innovation at Lloyd’s. “We created Lloyd’s Lab to pursue innovative, technology driven solutions like Parsyl that can address the unique and rapidly changing demands of the Lloyd’s market, and are proud to be announcing this initiative as an outcome of the program.”

    The initiative was co-created by Parsyl and market syndicates Ascot, Antares, Beazley and CNA Hardy, all of whom lead a substantial portion of the global marine cargo business that is underwritten at Lloyd’s. The initiative also has the support of AXA XL and QBE, two of the largest marine cargo syndicates at Lloyd’s.

    “We know that our future success and that of our clients is driven by our ability to find new ways to improve the claims process and better manage risk. By partnering with Parsyl, we’re able to greatly enhance our offering with sophisticated and predictive data analytics,” said Andrew Brooks, CEO of Ascot Group.

    The Parsyl platform includes its low cost, proprietary Trek multi-sensing hardware devices, mobile application, and web platform that combines granular sensor readings with contextual data, such as cargo tracking, weather and telematics data. Parsyl's software automatically generates interactive shipment visualizations, aggregated performance insights and recommendations for avoiding issues with future shipments. Parsyl’s hardware, combined with powerful data analytics, allows insurers to increase profitability, reduce risk, and improve claims.

    “By combining our modern approach to supply chain data analytics with the industry expertise of Lloyd’s and our syndicate partners, we’re able to offer an unprecedented approach to risk management,” said Ben Hubbard, co-founder and CEO of Parsyl. “Together we can usher in a new age for the marine cargo industry that is not only better for insurers and their customers, but ultimately for people around the world who depend on crucial goods that are shipped every day.”

    Brokers and assured clients who are interested in participating in the new program are encouraged to contact one of the participating syndicates or visit parsyl.com/lloyds to request more information.

    CROZET, Va., Dec. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- *SmarTech Publishing* has just published a new 173-page report detailing the evolution of additive manufacturing with composite fiber reinforced materials. In this first update of the benchmark report published in 2016, SmarTech Publishing highlights how new large format material extrusion technologies and expansion of powder bed fusion system capabilities are contributing to build the chopped fiber additive manufacturing into a nearly $10 billion-dollar opportunity.While continuous fiber additive manufacturing technologies remain a long-term objective for several companies’ research & development efforts, chopped fiber reinforced materials have already begun to generate significant revenues in terms of new hardware and material sales as well as AM services and internal part production by major composite AM adopters in segments such as aerospace, automotive, medical, energy, marine and consumer goods.

    The new *3D Printed Composites Materials Markets – 2018-2027 *report goes on to identify and quantify the commercial opportunities presented by implementation of fiber-reinforced composite and nanocomposite materials for 3D printing in these major manufacturing sectors.

    Further details of this report can be found at:  https://www.smartechpublishing.com/reports/3d-printed-composites-materials-markets-2018/

    *About the Report: *

    This report analyzes these trends to great depths providing a complete, highly accurate and current panoramic of the composite additive manufacturing market today. The primary objective of this report is to highlight the most relevant business opportunities that lie ahead for companies that are invested in either the composite material or additive manufacturing markets, as well as provide a detailed map of the key technologies and materials – as well as their business potential – to all major potential composite AM adopters in the primary adoption segments, including key industries such as aerospace, automotive, medical, energy, marine and consumer goods sectors.

    As the AM industry, and the composite AM segment in particular, moves toward final part production, SmarTech leveraged its extensive market-leading hardware and material database to provide the first ever assessment of the revenue opportunity that is expected to emerge from prototype, tools and end-use part production of additively manufactured composite parts. These elements will enable readers to gain the most up to date and clear understanding of the composite AM industry today.

    Key companies included in this report are +Lab/moi composites, 3D Fortify, 3D Systems, 3DXTech, Advanc3D Materials, Arevo Labs, Autodesk, BASF, CEAD Group, Cincinnati Inc., Continuous Composites 3D, CRP Group, EOS, Farsoon, Hexcel, HP, Impossible Objects, Ingersoll, Markforged, Prodways, Ricoh, SABIC, Siemens, Stratasys, Thermwood.

    *From the Report:*

    · SmarTech Publishing estimates the composite AM opportunity to grow into a nearly $10 billion yearly global business. This data includes over 4 billion in revenues from hardware sales. In particular, powder bed fusion 3D printers are expected to be the primary type of systems used for composite AM part production.
     
    · SmarTech Publishing expects the revenues generated by composite AM part production (including prototypes, tools and final parts) to top $4 billion by the end of the forecast period in 2028. Within this timeframe, final parts are expected to grow into the largest revenue opportunity.
     
    · Commercial composite AM technologies available on the market today belong almost exclusively to two technological families: material extrusion and powder bed fusion. Some experimentation is taking place in the segment of lamination-based AM processes.
     
    · The primary material in all traditional and advanced manufacturing applications for composites is *carbon fiber*. Beyond fibers, carbon can also be used in manufacturing (and in AM) in other forms, which are called allotropes. These include graphene (which is a one-atom thick layer of carbon atoms) and CNTs (carbon nanotubes). Another key material in additive manufacturing of composites (and in composite manufacturing in general) is glass fiber. Glass fiber reinforced thermoplastic are increasingly seen as an opportunity particularly for PBF processes.
     
    · Long term growth is expected to be very significant as composites become even more relevant in segments which expand beyond the medical and aerospace sectors and into consumer areas such as next generation automotive, energy, and transportation in general. As additive manufacturing technologies are perfected, SmarTech Publishing expects that they will take up a very considerable share of the entire composite manufacturing market.

    *About SmarTech Publishing:*

    Since 2013 *SmarTech Publishing* has published reports on all the important revenue opportunities in the 3D printing/additive manufacturing sector and is considered the leading industry analyst firm providing coverage of this sector.

    Our company has a client roster that includes the largest 3D printer firms, materials firms and investors.  We have also published reports on most of the important revenue opportunities in the 3D printing sector including personal printers, low-volume manufacturing, 3D printing materials, medical/dental applications, aerospace, automotive, and other promising 3D market segments.

    A “gold rush” of seabed mining could lead to unprecedented damage to fragile deep-sea ecosystems, researchers have warned. 

    With major decisions on the future of seabed mining expected in 2019-20, scientists and policy experts from the University of Exeter and Greenpeace have recommended a range of measures to prevent environmental damage.

    They say deep-sea ecosystems currently need more protection, rather than new threats. 

    They also argue that mining in the deep sea (depths below 200m) could be avoided altogether if humanity moved towards a “circular economy” that focuses on reuse and recycling of metals, reduces overconsumption and limits built-in obsolescence of technology. 

    “This ‘gold rush’ is being driven by our ever-growing demand for minerals,” said Dr David Santillo, a marine biologist and senior Greenpeace scientist based at the University of Exeter. 

    “Should we allow seabed mining – with the risk it poses to deep-sea ecosystems – or should we focus instead on reducing this demand for virgin minerals?”

    The scientists also call for an improved network of Marine Protected Areas, strict regulations and monitoring of all human activities on the seabed, and far greater transparency on the costs and benefits of any proposed mining. 

    “The deep sea is beyond the jurisdiction of any single state and we need more joined-up global governance to prevent biodiversity loss from human activities”, said Dr Kirsten Thompson, a marine biologist at the University of Exeter and co-author on the study. 

    “Some areas targeted for seabed mining are known to be hotspots for biodiversity, including habitat for endemic corals and nursery grounds for sharks.”

    The paper, published in the journal Frontiers in Marine Science, gives an overview of the current state of regulations and their likely effectiveness, with the aim to stimulate wider discussion before the International Seabed Authority reaches any decisions to allow commercial mining of the seafloor. 

    “Many marine scientists are concerned that, once the first commercial contract for mining is issued, there will be no going back,” said Kathryn Miller, a co-author on the study. 

    “Before that happens, we should be absolutely certain that we have looked carefully at all the other options for a more sustainable future.” 

    The study recommends:

    · Sustainability: Create a “circular economy” based on reuse and recycling, extending product lifespans and discouraging overconsumption.
    · Monitoring: Robust monitoring and research of deep-sea ecosystems through an international ocean agency.
    · Protection: Establish a coherent network of Marine Protected Areas.
    · Transparency: Inform the global community, including all indigenous groups and small-island states, of the costs and benefits of proposed activity according to the United Nations convention stipulation that activities in the deep sea must be carried out for “the benefit of mankind”. 
    · Legislation: Strict regulations to prevent harm to ecosystems must be enforced by the regulatory body and be independently verified. 

    The study follows a previous paper that suggested seabed mining could do irreversible damage to deep-sea ecosystems. Reported by Eurasia Review 16 hours ago.

    New options meet strict wind and projectile-impact requirements; maintain standard lead times

    KOHLER, Wis. (PRWEB) December 17, 2018

    KOHLER is pleased to introduce new hurricane-rated enclosures for its comprehensive lineup of industrial generators. The durable aluminum enclosures meet the most stringent and widely recognized Testing Application Standards (TAS) within the Florida Building Code for wind load and projectile impact – TAS 201, TAS 202, and TAS 203. As an added benefit, the new hurricane-rated enclosures are factory designed and built, allowing KOHLER to deliver the units within the company’s standard lead times.

    “Building these new hurricane-rated enclosures in our factory is a significant advantage – it allows us to ship faster while also offering our customers the cost savings and peace-of-mind that comes with a fully-integrated KOHLER power system,” said Beth Splittgerber, product manager for KOHLER industrial generators. “The same engineering team that designed your new KOHLER generator also designed the enclosure, ensuring it will meet the exact specifications of the complete power system. For example, these enclosures maintain UL2200 compliance without the need for additional onsite certification, which can be a costly and time-consuming process.”

    The new hurricane-rated enclosures are an ideal option for a broad range of KOHLER gas and diesel industrial generators. The entire enclosure was subjected to severe wind and impact testing and received TAS 201 Level E Certification, the highest available designation for projectile/missile impact. The testing was completed at a TAS accredited test lab and certification letters for the product were issued by a certified Florida P.E.

    “We anticipate a very strong response to our new hurricane-rated enclosures from senior living communities and other healthcare facilities located near the U.S. Gulf and Atlantic coasts,” Splittgerber added. “But, these enclosures are really a great solution anywhere an extreme level of protection against high winds and potential storm damage is valued. A power system is a mission-critical asset and it’s imperative to keep it operational for the health and safety of individuals or the viability of a business. We’re offering these new enclosures to give our customers the security to rest easy knowing their power system will be ready-to-go when it’s needed the most.”

    The hurricane-rated enclosures are available now on qualifying new KOHLER aluminum enclosure orders. For more details, please contact a certified KOHLER dealer/distributor in your area. A Distributor Locator can be accessed online here: https://kohlerpower.com/en/generators/industrial/distributor-locator.

    A global force in power solutions since 1920, KOHLER manufactures complete power systems, including generators (portable, marine, residential, commercial and industrial), automatic transfer switches, switchgear, monitoring controls, and accessories for emergency, prime power and energy-management applications all around the world.
