CRIMPING TERMINALS - The importance of using the right tool
    Pre-insulated terminals

and splices are pre-insulated RBY terminals and splices designed specifically to answer the

need for inexpensive, insulated electrical terminations. The quality, ease of installation

and inherent simplicity make them candidates for almost all commercial applications.

PLASTI-GRIP is available in ring, spade, flanged, spaded, and slotted tongue terminals, as

well as parallel and butt splices.
    These terminals and splices are well accepted in all markets and feature easy

installation with TE tooling, crimp-performance guaranteed. The insulation provides good

dielectric strength and supports the wire insulation so that no bare wire is exposed.
    Funneled wire entry on the terminal prevents turned-back wire strands and permits rapid

wire insertion during high speed production. Serrations in the crimp barrel provide maximum

contact and tensile strength after crimping. The “C” crimp is specially designed by TE

for a long-lasting crimp.
    Application tooling has been developed to ensure uniform high-quality terminations.

Tools and pre-insulated ring terminals have been designed together to promote ease

and speed of application while providing precise crimping pressure for every wire size.

PLASTI-GRIP is available in ring, spade, flanged, spaded, and slotted tongue terminals, as

well as parallel and butt splices.
    Applications include HVAC, instruments/controls, lighting, switchgear, power supplies,

panel boxes, transportation, motors, and many more.
    The development of international trade, supply chains and transport increases the

turnover of container pin pre-insulated terminals. Changes in the port environment and

the functions of terminals have created a demand for logistics solutions and value-added

services. On the other hand, these changes have also influenced the port-city interface.
    The purpose of this paper is to present the activity of container terminals and examine

how the growing turnover of container units has affected the port cities. The interaction

between the latter and port terminals has been discussed. The research is based on the

terminals located in Polish port cities of Gdynia and Gdańsk, which play a leading role in

the development of the economy in the region;
    The research has shown that maritime networks have an ever-growing influence on ports

and port – city relationships. On the one hand, the growth of maritime logistic services

has a positive influence on the labor market and transport infrastructure, which is also

used by the inhabitants. On the other hand, the increase in container cargo volume has a

negative impact on urban areas through a number of negative externalities (congestion,

noise, pollutant emissions, etc.). This creates a conflict in which the city has to bear

the external effects of the port operations. In this context, solutions incorporating the

sustainable development of both port and urban areas are essential.
    With the increasing container cargo throughput and the arising of port congestion,

container ports start to choose the investment expansion strategy to increase the port

efficiency and then to figure out the problem of port congestion. To analyze this strategy,

we formulate a non-cooperative game model for a two-terminals-one-port system, and derive

the optimal equilibrium outcomes of the investment expansion strategy and investment

constant strategy. In the game, we find that when the investment parameter of expansion

strategy and impact of handling efficiency on demand changes, both pure-strategy Nash

equilibrium and mixed-strategy Nash equilibrium exist, and two


insulated blade terminals
are more likely to choose the investment expansion strategy

in most cases. Numerical simulation is applied to explore the equilibrium strategy under

different circumstance.
    Owing to a rapid growth in world trade and a large increase in the flow of

containerized goods, sea container Terminals play a vital role in globe-spanning supply

chains. Container terminals should be able to handle large ships, with large call sizes

within the shortest time possible, and at competitive rates. In response, terminal

operators, shipping lines and port authorities are investing in new technologies to improve

container handling and operational efficiency. Container terminals face challenging

research problems that have received much attention from the academic community. The focus

of this article is on highlighting recent developments in container terminals, which can be

categorized into two areas: (i) innovative container terminal technologies and (ii) new OR

directions and models for existing research areas. By choosing this focus, we complement

existing reviews on container terminal operations.
    If you currently work in the finance industry, or have aspirations of doing so, chances

are you have heard of a Bloomberg terminal. This Beginner's Guide to Bloomberg tutorial

will introduce you to one of the industry's most widely used sources for real-time

financial information. This guide is aimed at new Bloomberg users, and will provide an

overview of how to use a Bloomberg terminal. If you are a more experienced user, or if

after reading this guide you want to go into more detail on Bloomberg's capabilities,

please be on the lookout for the Advanced Guide to Bloomberg.
    In this basic guide, we will examine how to sign up for, install, and access Bloomberg.

We will then go on to covering basic navigation on the Bloomberg system. Navigating

Bloomberg is somewhat unique in that the system uses a special keyboard with some keys that

are different from those found on a "normal" keyboard. Therefore, the navigation

section of this guide will be important to newcomers. After gaining a working knowledge of

these basics, we will then move on to discuss some of the market and news monitor functions

that are available on Bloomberg. The remainder of the tutorial will include information on

analyzing securities as well as some tips and tricks for getting the maximum possible

benefit from this remarkable machine.
    There are two ways to begin using Bloomberg. The first is to subscribe to the Bloomberg

service. You can do so by contacting them (general contact number is (212) 318-2000).1? The

representative you speak with can then take down details of what you are looking for and

have someone from the sales team contact you. Pricing and terms of the contract are unique

to each user and would be discussed when the sales team contacts you. However, be aware

that Bloomberg is an expensive system and that having your own terminal may not be

practical for all users. Should you decide to subscribe to your own service, Bloomberg can

help you install the software over the phone, or can come out to visit you and assist in

installation. Note: the software can be installed on most PCs, but the company will give

you a special keyboard for navigating the system. The second method of accessing Bloomberg

is to find a public facility that has a Bloomberg terminal. Many larger libraries and

universities have one, so that is a good place to start looking. 
    The downside of this approach is that you won't be able to customize the system and

will have to share it with other users. However, for many users these drawbacks may be

outweighed by the cost savings over subscribing to the system as an individual.
    Solderless terminals are one of the lowest cost components in a system, but the

repercussions of a bad crimp can be crippling. There is much more complexity to the process

than meets the eye, but unfortunately many people in the industry overlook the fundamentals

of a good crimp and unknowingly put the integrity of their products at risk.
    Most people think they can use any tool to crimp a terminal. If the terminal looks good

after a brief visual inspection, they assume the connection is secure. However, looks can

be deceiving. A single bad crimp can cause both physical and electrical problems, resulting

in lost production time, damage, repairs, and potential injury or litigation.
    Companies routinely misunderstand agency certification criteria, and fail to crimp

according to industry-mandated specifications. TE terminals and splices undergo rigorous

performance testing to meet the needs of our customers entering the era of Industry 4.0.

When used with TE’s specially-designed tooling options, the crimped components meet the

most stringent safety, performance, and certification requirements.
    Micro-precision Glass Insulated Terminals (referred to as glass terminals) are the core

components used in precision electronic equipment and are often used for electrical

connections between modules. As a glass terminal, its quality has a great influence on the

performance of precision electronic equipment. Due to the limitations of materials and

production processes, some of the pre-insulated hook terminals produced have

defects, such as missing blocks, pores and cracks. At present, most of the defect detection

of glass terminals is done by manual inspection, and rapid detection easily causes eye

fatigue, so it is difficult to ensure product quality and production efficiency. The

traditional defect detection technology is difficult to effectively detect the very

different defects of the glass terminal. Therefore, this paper proposes to use deep

learning technology to detect missing blocks. First, preprocess the sample pictures of the

missing block defects of the glass terminal, and then train the improved Faster Region-CNN

deep learning network for defect detection. According to the test results, the accuracy of

the algorithm in detecting missing defects in the glass terminal is as high as 93.52%.
