New normal, part two
It seems that the phrase new normal is coming back. I admit, that I almost forgot about it, since has been a dozen years since I heard it for the first time. Journalists, economists, bankers, politicians and others start to use it between 2007 and 2008 in the tine of the financial crisis then, which was followed by the global recession. Then came a bull’s trend on the stock markets, indexes grow, as well as profits in companies and we all practically forgot the crisis. Now it back and with it the term new normal. What actually does this means?
How is doing the new robot factory in Kočevje?
"Currently, we have enough orders in both our factories until August. We didn’t stop the production for even one single day nether in our factory in Kočevje nor in our factory in Ribnica. But the fact is, that now we process the orders that we received before the crisis. However, the autumn this year it is uncertain", says Hubert Kosler, CEO at Yaskawa company in Slovenia.
Bioplastic planting pots for the hop sector
More than 99% of plastic products is made of non-renewable fossil derivates. According to the EU energy portal, world oil reserves should last for about 46 years. Plastics use in the packaging industry represents 39,9% of the total plastic production in Europe, which for 2018 amounts to a total of 51,2 million tons. Another economic sector that for some years in a row steadily increases the usage of plastic is the agricultural sector.
Corona crisis brings together different kinds of companies to produce protective masks
Efforts to stem the spread of Covid-19 make one problem of globalisation clear: the dependency on low-cost manufacturing countries for personal protective equipment (PPE). When you think of respiratory and surgical masks, which are currently produced predominantly in Asia, ultrasonics is probably not the first thing that springs to mind. Yet ultrasonic welding plays an important roll in making these products.
