Today, I am going to share below link of Intro Video of SSI Schafer group Germany for readers in this post: https://youtube/wdRMHPNzA30. This company has very developed and advances technologies & expertise viz-a-vis material handling & transport systems. The video shows latest research in robotics & AI technologies.

Following product groups are with their product lines & the manufacturing facility.

  • Canister systems: polyurethane-covered / stainless steel (Pfannenberg), (Sudex), Kegs 
  • Container systems: Containers for industry and chemicals; foodstuff containers; IBC-containers
  • Perforated plates : perforated metallic sheets coils; (Pfannenberg)
  • Equipment systems: Cabinets; workbenches; workstation solutions (Betzdorf)
  • IT-Systems: Network racks and cabinets (Betzdorf)
  1. EMW Eisen- und Metallhandel GmbH​

EMW was recognized in 1952. The Company is well-known in production of thin sheet in the form of coils, slit strips and trimmed wide strips. These are always available for delivery in 45,000 m² of temperature controlled storage space. They provide just-in-time deliveries due to tons of input material stocks and enormous grade variety.

Product range

What is Internet of Things (IoT)?

 What is Internet of Things (IoT)?    The internet of Things, or IoT, refers to the billions of physical devices  round the  world that are now connected to  the web  , collecting, sharing and analyses  of knowledge  . It presents and provides the explanation of the network of physical things which is embedded with software , sensors,  and other technologies for the benefit of connecting and exchanging data with other devices and systems on the internet   . Due to the cheap processors and wireless networks, it's possible to  means  anything, from a pill to an aero plane to a self-driving car into  an area  of the IoT. Overview IoT will control the Fourth  technological revolution  . The Fourth  technological revolution  is changing the very software-defined automation allows manufacturers to link all stages of  the worth  chain, rapidly adapt to changing markets , and make highly personalized products on a mass scale. The opportunities provided by this revolution are authenticated

What is Rust Borrowing?

What is Rust Borrowing? Borrowing We call having references as function parameters borrowing. As in real world , if an individual owns something, we 'll borrow it from them . Whenever we’re done, we 've got to offer it back. Referencing  The reference is that the act of consulting somebody or something so as to urge information We would  declare reference in terms of Rust programing as if we are taking a replica of it without damaging or taking its ownership. ‘&’ symbol is employed to pass the reference Have a look that  how ‘&’ symbol is employed in code. fn main() { let s1 = String::from("hello"); let len = calculate_length(&s1); println!("The length of {} is {}.", s1, len); } fn calculate_length(s: &String) -> usize { s.len()} Mutable References The actual concept of mutable reference is same as we use mutable variable When  we  need to  modify  mutable reference is employed once   the worth we make regard to.

Kubernetes Readiness Probes

 Kubernetes Readiness Probes Description We understand that liveness probes and the way they assist keep our apps healthy by ensuring unhealthy containers are restarted automatically. Same like liveness probes, Kubernetes permit us to also define a readiness looked for our pod. The readiness probe is deployed periodically and examines whether the precise pod should receive client requests or not. Whenever a container’s readiness probe returns back success, it’s signaling that the container is ready to simply accept requests. This notion of being prepared is clearly something that’s specific to every container. Almost as liveness probe Kubernetes sends requests to container and supported the result either successful or unsuccessful response it decides container is prepared to require traffic or still preparing for that. The liveness probes not like, if a container fails the readiness check, it won’t be killed or restarted.   This is a very good practice to
