Types and Functions of Flexible Couplings

What is Flexible Coupling?

In situations where two shafts of a given mechanism are misaligned, flexible couplings are used to transmit torque from one shaft to another. These couplings can accommodate differing degrees of misalignment approximately up to 3°. In addition to this feature, the couplings are also used for noise reduction and vibration damping.

There are three Basic Functions involved under this category, and they are:

1. Transmit Power: Basically couplings are used to transmit mechanical power from one device to another. This power is in the form of mechanical torque which is found at some given speed. However, the power lost by a coupling is very small in amount, but still exhibit some efficiency as compared to others. Continue reading »

Most of Us Have What It Takes – We Are Just Not Willing to Do What It Takes!

A few years ago I had the opportunity to attend a presentation by Anthony Robbins. The event was comprised of a full day of speakers and, as someone who enjoys speaking; I was thrilled to watch some true professionals at work.

I have listened to hundreds of speakers over the years, and to watch Anthony Robbins was like nothing I had ever witnessed. He brought such raw energy to the stage that I could instantly see how he has been able to create a huge business around his personal energy.

More than his presence, what caught me was the unique way in which he engaged and challenged the audience. He asked the audience to consider what was holding them back from achieving their goals. A woman in the front row volunteered her story about how the responsibility of taking care of her children had made it impossible to achieve her goals. As the woman explained her situation, every person in the audience felt empathy and understood her difficult position. Continue reading »

Wanted: Turnover Activists

Years ago, like some of you probably, I thought that staff turnover was an unfortunate cost of doing business. It never occurred to me that I can and should do something about it. Further, I thought that it was someone else’s fault. I blamed it on a lack of funding or the fact that other people (like the state) were able to pay people more than I was for essentially the same work. So rather than look inside my organization for areas of improvement, I pointed the finger at external situations that I believed underlying my turnover rate.

Turnover undermines everything your organization is trying to do. Yes, some turnover is inevitable and probably desirable. But the conclusion that It totally wastes money and makes your service much less than what it could be, is unavoidable.

Turnover is a manageable problem; it can and should be maintained at an acceptable level or reduced. To continue with turnover of over 15% without a program to reduce it is a challenge to leadership that must not be neglected. Continue reading »

Printing Policies: Allies in Fighting the Crisis

How, Who and Where are some of the questions that a Printing Policy can provide an answer and a solution to. In other words, a Printing Policy gathers the rules that establish which is the best and most intelligent way to print and, consequently, save costs and be much more environment friendly.

A study concerning corporate printing conducted by KYOCERA Document Solutions in 2008 -the official start date of the economic crisis- concluded that businesses could save up to 25% with an adequate Corporate Printing Policy. Companies that have not acted on this matter yet only have to multiply this percentage by four to obtain the amount of unnecessary expenses they are making.

The reason behind this is that most companies let their workers manage printing issues. According to KYOCERA’s survey, eight out of nine companies do not know the exact total cost of printing in their organization. In other words, only one out of nine companies knows how much they spend on printing. In general, businesses have never really focused on the issue of printing, and they are still neglecting it thinking that it is an entirely necessary cost, when the truth is that it can be drastically reduced.

College Grads Turn to Public Service

As jobs became scarce during the recession, many college graduates turned to public service work, many taking nonprofit and US military jobs. From 2008 to 2009 alone, 16 percent more college graduates worked for the federal government and 11 percent more worked for nonprofit groups, according to an analysis by The New York Times of data from the American Community Survey of the United States Census Bureau. A Labor Department survey showed that the amount of college grads going into these jobs continued to rise in 2010.

Since the start of the recession in 2007, an increasing and steady number of college graduates (tens of thousands) also joined the armed forces, with the Navy and the Army seeing the biggest increases. About 60 percent more graduates joined the Navy in 2011 than in 2007.

“When the economy worsens, as it has in recent years, we certainly see a surge in the number of young people who are highly qualified, who want to join the military,” said Beth Asch, a researcher for the RAND Corp – an organization which has studied U.S. military recruitment for over 40 years.

Get Uncomfortable

Are you happy in your career or just going through the motions? Do you know it’s time to act, but you don’t want to? Are you pushing yourself to do more, and be more, or are you too comfortable being comfortable?

Making a change in your career involves work, and not everyone likes to do work. Whether it’s a new job, a new career, or a new way of dealing with a problem at work, challenging situations do not change without your active participation.

Maybe making changes in your career used to be easier. Maybe jobs were handed to you, or opportunities came quicker. Because of the nature of today’s workplace and the competitiveness among workers for jobs, those days are long gone. You get change when you work for change. You can wish that the process for change would be different, and they will be different once you put in the effort. (Or, when you keep going past the point where you want to stop.)
