Aimcal Corn Hole Tournament

Aimcal presents a Golf and Corn Hole Tournament each year for team building and networking.  The Golf Tournament is popular but participation is limited and participants usually only get to know those in their foursome.  The Corn Hole Tournament features 20-30 teams of two and a good sized enthusiastic audiance.  Gencoa (Sputtering Vacuum Solutions) sponsored this year’s Corn Hole Tournament.

Process Sensors was fortunate to partner with Gencoa’s Business and Technology Manager, Frank Papa.  Frank and I made it to the Quarterfinals before bowing to Toray Plastics in the Semi-Finals, the eventual runner up to Champion Adhesives Research!  A good time was had by All.  Congratulations to Adhesives Research of GlenRock PA.

Our Sympathies and Prayers for Victims and Families of the Vegas Tragedy

Process Sensors sends our sympathies and prayers to the victims of the Las Vegas shootings.  These senseless deaths have no place amongst us.

Pack Expo Las Vegas was a successful show for us and we are fortunate that it ended the later part of last week.  We had two PackExpo show contests to guess the moisture in a freshly owned package of cereal and the thickness of adhesive on tape.

Paul and I would like to personally thank you for stopping by our booth at Pack Expo Las Vegas. We enjoyed discussing your application with you and how our sensors may help you optimize your processes.

Join us in congratulating the winners of our GoPro contest, William Parkki of PowderPure and Sonal Rajyaguru of Wisoman Foods. Both winners were within .5% of the actual reading and received a GoPro Hero 5 Session!

We appreciate your interest in our products and look forward to working with you. You will be contacted by the regional sales person for your area, but please feel free to contact us directly in the meantime.


Again, out thoughts and prayers to the victims and families of this senseless tragedy.

Let’s Laminate


Lamination is essentially marrying two or more layers of materials together to obtain superior performance characteristics for specific product applications.   Near IR Transmitters are well established to measure moisture and coating thickness in the lamination process.  Cross Direction Web Profilers greatly assist in producing an even in-specification profile of adhesive thickness.  The resulting composite may be designed as a superior moisture or odor barrier, to highlight/protect appearance or gloss, reduce sound transmission, to increase strength or structural stability and many other applications.

Auto windscreens (windshields)  laminate two pieces of glass with a layer of PVB (polyvinylbutyral)  or other suitable polymer to prevent or minimize sharp glass shards from showering on driver and passengers on impact by wrapping the glass surfaces with the polymer.  Near IR can measure the film moisture and thickness.

Converting industries such as Tag, Tape & Labels, Packaging & Release Liners, Textiles and others operate Near IR to measure the adhesive coat weight applied and the moisture after unit operations such as dryers, re-moisturizers and final windup for QC and Process Control.  For converting applications a two roll laminator is often employed with one roll made of neoprene or other suitable rubber and the other roll made of steel or chrome plated.  The rubber roll applies pressure to the adhesive but also allows for compensation of caliper variations.  Nip roll pressure and skew assist in optimizing the process.

Happy St. Patty’s Day!

St. Patty Leprechaun kid 031716St. Patty’s Day is celebrated on March 17th to honor his death in 461 A.D.   Allegedly he was born in 385 A.D. to Roman parents in Wales and kidnapped at the age of 16 to be sold into slavery in Ireland.  There, while working as a shepherd he had a religious experience and began preaching. 

33.7 Million Americans of Irish Descent, about 7 times more than the population of the Republic of Ireland (4.6 Million)

First St. Patty’s Day Parade was not held in Ireland.  It was held in Boston in 1737 and NY began the tradition in 1762.  The parades were held to demonstrate the growing social and political power of the often oppressed Irish immigrants

Guinness sells 5.7 Million pints per day on average.  Sales jump to over 11 Million pints on St. Patty’s Day

First US President to attend a St. Patty’s Day Parade was Harry Truman in 1948

Largest St. Patty’s Day Parade is in New York City drawing over 1 Million people.   In Chicago, Illinois they dye the river with 40 tons of Kelly Green eco-friendly vegetable dye.  The tradition started in 1962.  The color lasts for between 5 and 8 hours.  Catfish must love it!  Among the largest celebrations are Boston MA (since 1901) and …… Savannah, Georgia!

Shortest St. Patrick’s Day parade is in Hot Springs, Arkansas at 98 feet

The original color associated with St. Patty’s Day was blue, it later became green associated with the green springs in Ireland and allegedly a freedom movement.  You will often see blue as an alternate color to green among revelers

The Shamrock is associated with St. Patrick as he used it as a metaphor for the Holy Trinity when he introduced Christianity to the Pagan Celts

While legend has it that St. Patrick drove the snakes from Ireland, there are actually no snakes native to Ireland.  It was too cold in the Ice Age for snakes to survive and the surrounding ocean prevented any snakes from reaching Ireland

The traditional Irish meal of Corned Beef and Cabbage has nothing to do with corn.  The “corn” refers to the large salt crystals used to cure the beef

“Erin go Bragh” roughly translates to “Ireland Forever”
