The Bizkaian company, Ekoplast Balenciaga, manufacturer of large, high-thickness plastic parts, has developed and patented, in collaboration with the Gaiker technological centre, a novel support for the handling and transport of coils of sheet steel. Made from 100% recyclable plastics from containers, agricultural film, the recycling also contributes to a better use of these plastic residues generated by these industrial sectors.
Undertaking the novel design with the latest generation CAD/CAE tools and using a novel closed-moulding extrusion technology in its manufacture, an important step in the manufacture of large-sized and high-thickness plastic parts using recycled and recyclable materials has been achieved
The new product developed provides greater safety in the transport of goods, both in its high resistance – it can carry up to 15 tonnes, as well as in its capability to avoid deformations of the part. Notable amongst the advantages are its design, its mechanical resistance, lack of deformations, greater durability than traditional pallets, resistance to humidity, versatility in the handling and volumes of loads, which means a significant advance for the transport sector, in handling and for storage of the goods.

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.
To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...
The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.
Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
