YUASA Systems to Demonstrate New Endurance Test Capabilities for Flexible Displays

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. -- Bayflex Solutions announces that YUASA Systems, the leading provider of endurance test systems for displays and flexible electronics, will demonstrate new solutions for flexible display testing at the Society for Information Display (SID) Display Week, taking place virtually August 3-7, 2020.

Building on its world-class capabilities for repeated physical motions using unique tension-free technology that enables non-destructive performance evaluations, YUASA will demonstrate three new capabilities at the Display Week Exhibitor's Forum:
* A new optical analysis system (CS-CAM) that integrates an optics package and image processing software into a standard CS clamshell-type flexing mechanism. Using a side-view mounting configuration, the CS-CAM can provide real-time edge strain analysis for early delamination detection while testing multi-layer film stacks.
* A new test cartridge (CS-TD) for both the standard and twin mechanical jigs that enables "teardrop" shape flex testing, with adjustable parameters for neck width, tear length and width to simulate different sizes and shapes of hinges on display devices. Alternatively, this cartridge can adjust the neutral plane for multi-layer flexing.
* A new medium size flexing jig (CS-M) suitable for testing tablet and laptop displays. As with all CS jigs, the CS-M provides clamshell type flexing of linear or planar objects to 0.5 mm radius, and works with the ECP system control and data capture package.

In addition to these new products, YUASA Systems, working with its U.S. partner Bayflex Solutions, is developing new capabilities in multi-environment chambers (PICO) that provide desktop endurance testing in multiple hostile conditions such as humidity, temperature, as well as data analysis capabilities that can provide real-time assessment and predictive analytics based on test data.

Finally, in order to adapt the "new normal" of work from home, YUASA Systems and Bayflex Solutions now offer equipment on a subscription basis in addition to purchase, and have opened test centers in Japan and the U.S. so that clients can ship samples for testing.

"YUASA Systems is pleased to continue to offer advanced testing capability to the display industry, for flexible displays, touch screens, and other flexible components. The development of the CS-CAM, CS-TD cartridge and CS-M products were in response to the requirements of display and touch screen materials suppliers, panel makers, and system integrators, all of whom need to have repeatable, controlled endurance testing simulating real-world physical conditions," said Eisuke Tsuyuzaki, Principal, Bayflex Solutions. "This year's solutions are significant as we are eager to introduce a completely new series of optical imaging and enhanced data analysis capabilities."

Children’s Hospital LA Study on Mobile Devices includes UV-C Disinfection

LINDON, Utah -- Use of smartphones and other mobile devices in the healthcare setting has skyrocketed over the past decade, but infection prevention protocols designed to keep them clean have not kept pace, says PhoneSoap. In fact, research suggests as few as 13-37% of healthcare providers report regularly cleaning their devices.

This leaves a significant gap in healthcare infection prevention and control efforts as mounting evidence shows mobile devices frequently carry pathogenic bacteria and viruses on their surfaces, posing a significant infection risk to healthcare providers and the patients they treat.

Children's Hospital Los Angeles takes disinfecting of mobile devices very seriously. Recently, their Infectious Disease physicians conducted and published a study in the American Journal of Infection Control titled, "Shining a light on the pathogenicity of health care providers' mobile phones: use of a novel Ultraviolet C wave disinfection device."

The study evaluated the disinfection efficacy of a UV-C device, PhoneSoap Pro generation 1, for the mobile phones of pediatric residents and nurses working a 12-hour shift on a pediatric medical/surgical unit. The researchers found that total pathogenic bacterial counts were reduced by 98.2% after one 30-second disinfection cycle and by >99.99% after two disinfection cycles.

"The use of UV-C light allows us to disinfect cell phones in a sustainable manner without the use of wipes or cleaning products," said Sanchi Malhotra, MD, a fellow in infectious diseases at Children's Hospital Los Angeles and primary investigator of the study. The researchers also point to the fact that many wipes are not intended for use on mobile devices, are not recyclable, and are subject to shortage.

The effective pathogenic reduction seen after just a 30-second disinfection cycle aligns with the needs of the healthcare industry for which time constraints and workflow patterns demand a rapid and efficient solution. The technology also provides an opportunity for establishing an easily-implemented disinfection protocol.

Jeffrey Bender, MD, a specialist in infectious diseases at Children's Hospital Los Angeles, said, "In hospitals, we are already using UV-C light to disinfect equipment, patient rooms, and other spaces. Using a UV-C device allows us to standardize the process of disinfecting personal cell phones and potentially further reduce risk of infection."

Citing survey results demonstrating that the staff overwhelmingly endorsed use of the device, the study authors conclude that the phone and tablet disinfecting technology offers a valuable and well-received approach to reducing the risk of healthcare-associated infections and protecting healthcare providers.

ABOUT PHONESOAP:

PhoneSoap was invented by cousins Dan Barnes and Wes LaPorte after recognizing the need to decontaminate hand-held devices. They conducted testing and results proved that the average phone is 18 times dirtier than a public bathroom. PhoneSoap has sold over two million consumer units and continues to grow at a rapid speed. In the past three years, additional models have been released as well as newer devices including PhoneSoap Go, HomeSoap and screen-cleaning accessories like the PhoneSoap Shine and Microfiber Pad 3-pack. PhoneSoap's focus continues to be making the world a healthier place.

McGregor Pedals Launches the Crunch Transparent Overdrive Pedal

VANCOUVER, B.C. -- McGregor Pedals Inc. is pleased to announce the launch of their flagship product, the Crunch Transparent Overdrive Pedal for bass and guitar.

Designer Garth Heslop went back to the drawing board to develop this single-channel, low-gain overdrive pedal. The Crunch Transparent Overdrive maintains the core tone of a player's setup while adding a breakup that is soft, warm, and musically focused.

"The Crunch Transparent Overdrive was designed specifically for both bass and guitar and works well with other pedals in either a primary or secondary drive position," says Heslop.

Mr. Heslop worked in close collaboration with musicians who have over a combined century of tone chasing experience, both live and in studio.

ViewTech Borescopes Finishes 2020 2nd Quarter with New Clients and Announcement of Smallest VJ-3 Video Borescope

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. -- Business continued for North America's top seller of video borescopes to close out the 2nd quarter of 2020. Despite COVID-19 shutdowns impacting many industries, ViewTech's borescopes improve the quality and productivity of technicians during a vast array of application inspections, many of which have been deemed essential during the coronavirus pandemic. In addition to increasing their client base, ViewTech Borescopes also launched their newest and smallest diameter video borescope with the VJ-3 2.2mm. As inspection areas decrease in size, ViewTech Borescopes insertion tube diameters are following suit.

The owner of a New York-based equipment fabrication and installation corporation appreciated the convenience of ViewTech Borescopes no-cost, no-obligation demo program. When searching for a borescope to complete orbital weld inspections during a pharmaceutical validation, they required an inspection scope that could view inside long piping that involved multiple elbows. The VJ-3 Dual Camera 6.0mm x 8.0-meter was recommended by ViewTech's borescope experts.

With front and side-view cameras, along with image and video capture-capability, their team of engineers and clients are now able to see initial results promptly. By test driving a VJ-3 onsite with ViewTech's in-hands demo program, it was realized the minimal investment their new scope required would quickly pay for itself.

During the 2020 HAI HELI Expo ViewTech Senior Sales Consultant, Zack Wessels, met a Western US Helicopter Program Manager that operates a diverse fleet. With the ability to scan an entire area, their VJ-3 3.9mm x 2.0-meter video borescope has been inspecting engines, gear boxes and rotor heads on their helicopters. The VJ-3 video borescope now allows their helicopter mechanics to diagnose mechanical issues or determine the quality of a part without having to go through time-consuming engine disassembly.

To end the 2nd quarter of 2020 ViewTech Borescopes added the VJ-3 2.2-millimeter to their lineup of inspection scopes. ViewTech's General Manager, Sean O'Connor, stated "the VJ-3 2.2mm is utilized during many different types of inspection processes, including metal castings, small-scale components, circuitry and more, ensuring that every part is up to spec." Available with an ultra-thin 2.2-millimeter insertion tube and length of 1.0-meter, the VJ-3 2.2mm video borescope features two-way, joystick-controlled articulation and a rugged, liquid-proof design. Nondestructive testing professionals can save time and money with the intuitive and portable VJ-3 2.2mm video borescope.

VJ-3 Video Borescope

The VJ-3 mechanical articulating video borescope is a nondestructive testing instrument used for the remote visual inspection of machinery, equipment, and components. The VJ-3 facilitates the visual recording and photo documentation of an inspection and components in areas that are otherwise inaccessible or require great effort and expense to access directly. The VJ-3 consists of two modules integrated into one system: an insertion tube with distally mounted camera/LEDs, and the base unit with control panel, LCD monitor, power source and all necessary circuitry.

About ViewTech Borescopes

ViewTech Borescopes, founded as RF System Lab in 2008, is North America's #1 seller of video borescopes. Their first product, the VJ borescope, set a new standard for portability, ergonomics and ease-of-use, with its industry-first mechanical, joystick-controlled articulation.

National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund and MAGLITE Partner with Pedestrian Safety Institute to Promote National Traffic Safety Awareness Month

ONTARIO, Calif. -- The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF), The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) and Mag Instrument, U.S. Manufacturer of the iconic MAGLITE(R) flashlight, have partnered with the Pedestrian Safety Institute (PSI) to drive awareness of the deadliest days of the year for pedestrian and traffic fatalities in the Month of July.

July has been designated National Roadside Traffic Safety Awareness Month because of the spike in accidents and fatalities during that time of year. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration a pedestrian was killed every 88 minutes in 2017, now that number is even higher.

6,283 pedestrians were killed in 2018, an increase of 3.4 percent from the previous year and the highest number in 30 years. A research paper by noted economist and author Jay Prag of the Drucker School finds that pedestrian injuries and deaths from accidents cost the United States economy more than $60 billion in 2018 alone. The vast majority of accidents and the highest percentage of deaths (up to 75% according to some studies) occurred at night with poor visibility and distracted driving being major contributing factors.

"Pedestrian deaths exceed those by drowning and motorcycle accidents; exceed deaths by food borne illness in the US; and exceed deaths by tetanus, diphtheria, and whooping cough combined. They even exceed the combined deaths in home fires, boating accidents, and commercial airline accidents each year. If pedestrian deaths were a disease, drug companies would be searching for a cure," said study author Jay Prag.

Roadway hazards abound for the first responder. Traffic volume and speed, distracted drivers and the additional distraction caused by a roadway incident leave firefighters and others working the scene highly vulnerable. As of June 8, 2020, 20 first responders have been struck and killed while working vehicle incidents this year. Dozens more have been injured, with an even higher number of near misses predicted to be occurring daily.

"The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation joins with other agencies in calling for all drivers to remain attentive, slow down when approaching an incident on the roadway and safely move over to give first responders the best opportunity to do their work and return home to their families," said Chief Ronald J. Siarnicki, Executive Director of the NFFF.

"Maglite is committed to safety and security and make our products with those reasons in mind. We urge people to stay safe and be particularly vigilant around this deadly time of year and of course - carry some form of illumination at night," said Tony Maglica, Founder and CEO Mag Instrument, Inc. "Our goal is to reduce fatalities and injuries that occur on our roads and highways in vehicle traffic accidents, especially among pedestrians, who are far likelier to be fatally struck by vehicles at night than in the daytime."

The mission of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and Museum is to honor the fallen, tell the story of American law Enforcement, and make it safer for those who serve. Traffic safety for our officers is closely tied to pedestrian safety, and it is a priority to bring awareness of the topic to the nation. We are honored to be a partner in National Traffic Safety Awareness Month," said Marcia Ferranto, CEO of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.

NFFF, NLEOMF, Maglite and PSI will be using various social media and other communication channels to promote National Roadside Traffic Safety Awareness Month in July.

MAGLITE(R) is a founding sponsor of The Pedestrian Safety Institute and sponsored the research by Prag. The full research paper is available at the website: https://www.pedestriansafetyinstitute.com/.

About Mag Instrument:

Mag Instrument, manufacturer of the MAGLITE(R) flashlight, is proud to be a U.S.A. manufacturer. Each flashlight is a result of an obsession with fine engineering, craftsmanship and a commitment to perfection. Founder, owner and president Anthony Maglica has guided his company's growth from a one-man machine shop in 1955 to an enterprise that has proudly employed thousands of American workers since it produced its first flashlight in 1979.

ViewTech Borescopes VJ-3 Sales Increase During May 2020

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. -- While businesses and industries continue to return to work as restrictions are lifted, video borescope sales increased for ViewTech Borescopes. ViewTech highlights the addition of a selection of their newest VJ-3 clients now utilizing a ViewTech borescope during their inspection process.

Many ViewTech borescope purchases are finalized after experiencing a no-cost, on-site demo of a full-featured VJ-3 articulating video borescope. A Plant Quality Manager for an American packaged food company became acquainted with the VJ-3 during an on-site demo in 2019. With the seams of their extruder barrel needing a close inspection during cleaning processes, their previous exposure to ViewTech's line of mechanical articulating video borescopes proved the VJ-3 6.0mm x 5.0 meter would be the perfect inspection tool.

Another of ViewTech's newest clients, one of the Bay Area's largest manufacturers, connected with ViewTech Borescopes while searching for a solution to inspect cabling that lined an inaccessible area of their newest generation tool. With the borescope needing to be equipped with an articulating tip and photo capturing capabilities, ViewTech's demo program allowed them to see first-hand the quality of video borescope offered before committing to purchase.

With on-site staff conducting the inspection, engineers working remotely were able to view the inspection photos and videos at their home office and provide recommendations.

VJ-3 Video Borescope

The VJ-3 mechanical articulating video borescope is a nondestructive testing instrument used for the remote visual inspection of machinery, equipment, and components. The VJ-3 facilitates the visual recording and photo documentation of an inspection and components in areas that are otherwise inaccessible or require great effort and expense to access directly. The VJ-3 consists of two modules integrated into one system: an insertion tube with distally mounted camera/LEDs, and the base unit with control panel, LCD monitor, power source and all necessary circuitry.
