Choosing a Laser Printer

Published by:

In this article we will talk about the difference between the popular models of laser printers from manufacturers of printing equipment: Xerox, Epson, Minolta. More specifically, in this material, we decided to track the trend of new models of devices from the company Epson. First, note that Epson has many years experience in inkjet printers and MFPs. That Epson has developed a special pigment, through which the ink is very tightly secured on the media and the prints made with pigment inks do not smudge and are eventually not fade. This revolutionary design to fasten items Epson inkjet products in the market. Embedded way to fix the pigment used by large companies such as HP and Canon. But the technology is known to not stand still, together with the widespread inkjet technology for many years adjacent to laser printing. The laser method of fixing the image (the text is also a kind of image) was designed primarily to increase the speed and simultaneously reduce the cost for each separately produced prints.

Design your own custom models (assembly) of printers and MFPs process is very costly and time consuming. Now increasingly we can see that companies are simply buying a license to sell those or other existing models and sell them under its own brand. How we can come in handy this information? It is not difficult to assume that the machine is implemented on the license will never be cheaper than the original, or a similar scheme would be unprofitable. The task of any potential buyer to find the same characteristics of the goods at the lowest price. This article will help you orient yourself in the market.

We now turn to specifics. To determine which model is the analogue of a system, first we need to carefully compare the specifications of these devices, these characteristics are directly dependent on the mechanical components of the apparatus (Drive unit, a node capture paper, imaging unit, fuser unit), and secondly to draw attention to the used cartridges, and the resemblance of these devices. Now, to determine the original, we need to only know the date of the entry specific model vehicle. We have compiled for you a list of models, which are analogous to machines Epson: Epson c2800 is an analogue of Xerox 6180n; Epson c3800 analog Xerox 6280n; Epson EPL-6200 – Konica Minolta PagePro 1300W. It is not always necessary to be guided only by the price of the device, pay attention to prices of consumables (ink cartridges). At equal prices of machines, ink cartridges for them can vary greatly in price. It is also important when buying a printer or MFP to take into account the degree of prevalence of the brand across the country. On this depends the number of authorized service centers and dealer outlets in your city. In some cases, a small overpayment will be justified, because you always can quickly repair or buy a new cartridge for your device. In Moscow, there are about 30 authorized service centers Xerox, in St. Petersburg about 10. Every year, they will only increase. For example, service centers Konica Minolta half. If you live in a big city, there is no reason to overpay for the brand.

Installing Parquet

Published by:

Natural materials were valuable at all times. Natural wood floors are not only more than a year, they decorate the interior, pleasing to the eye, causing feelings of comfort and warmth, whether traditional or oak parquet parquet beech, ash, beech, merbau, maple, bamboo, etc. Parquet plank on concrete screed, perfectly smooth and dry (moisture content should not be above 5%). Variants of the grounds for parquet flooring, chipboard or plywood is fastened to the the base with screws, or more expensive and more solid foundation – floorboards 32-50 mm thick. It is well laid out subbase will provide the necessary durability, good quality and strength of sex. Based on time and think about the material and drawing on styling. It must be remembered that the color of flooring may change (for toning flooring, stain) can not be said about the picture, unless, of course, does not relay the floor again.

There are simple types and styling installation art parquet. For easy installation are: a straight or diagonal double and single, "Christmas tree", "deck" – drawing, where rivets are placed on the principle of "infinite board" (consecutive) straight / diagonal full-time or part-time direct "square". Artistic blow it, "socket", "borders" of different pattern, as well as "core elements". "Cubes" – a strictly laid out in a geometric pattern diamonds size. "Twist" – a geometric figure, when two kinds of different tones of wood (dark and light) creates the illusion of "raising the floor." In general, a geometric packing of the play of light appears, drawing and animating gives additional space. In this figure, and felt the master's hand and work where you put the soul.

But, more than in the geometric details and parquet wood, the harder blow and the higher should be experienced professional handler. We employ highly trained specialists – parquet, who can be trusted as a simple styling and the most responsible and difficult work. Parquet gain manually, here is very, very important, not only the accuracy in fitting joints, but also the speed and accuracy of high-profile artists. After placing it done with an intermediate grinding puttying special trains. Then the floor several layers of lacquer. We use only the best paints and oils for parquet flooring, proven not only in Russia but in the world market as a reliable material. The final stage-setting baseboards. We have selling a wide range of different types of flooring, parquet, laminate, tools for laying his care. We carry all hardwood work from scratch: the simple styling and parquet, sanding and scraping flooring, varnish and oil, toning, etc. You can rent equipment floor polishers, as with his delivery, as well as from our own. The high quality of work, professionals, and reasonable prices.

Robots get in packs Similar scenarios, researchers have not yet comment. They have other options ready. 'Humanized' cockroaches can lead a crowd of colleagues to lure back to where they wait for people in white coats with nets at the ready. Or they can be peaceful biological weapon in the fight against other insect pests. Then use the property insects work together, which is particularly distinguished by bees, termites, and ants. Weak individually, grouped in huge family, they achieve amazing results. Do not be traced the general pattern here? As soon as the tiny creatures belonging to the mind, master the ability to communicate with each other and form a community, it is – community! – Begins to act as a kind of intelligent being.

So maybe a lot of 'dumb' robots can form a 'clever' pack? Clarify the issue are trying to researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge (USA), creating a 'social' robots in the image of ants. Being a little more matchboxes, they move like miniature tanks, on two tracks. Thanks to the infrared lamps and sensors to robots exchange signals with their 'cousins' in the vicinity. Orient themselves in space to help them light and contact sensors – with their help, for example, robots react to the collision. Behave artificial ants in many ways – as scientists have programmed.

Some, for example, dutifully follow the leader, while others try to create something 'catch'. Sometimes they are grouped together, and then wander alone. There is even a certain critical 'density of robots. " Once this is achieved, the robots, like a flock of teenagers go together somewhere 'walk'. Scientists hope that with time and ability to roam the crowd will be able to draw in benefit. So imagine our artist one possible construction robotic mine detector, designed for operations in the coastal strip. As the basis of the bionic used native of these parts – crab Squad of robotic engineers carefully, five by inch, will examine the mined areas. Finding a metal detector, mine, everyone will stop by her side, waiting for further commands. When all the deadly weapons is found to connect people. Each robot will store explosives, which the operator using the remote control can undermine, destroy the mine, and – alas! – A robot, or get the last set firecrackers near the mines, and most retire to a safe place. Possible, though difficult to realize option when the robot detected a mine and dig gently take her to a location for destruction. Publication on foreign sources prepared by S. Slavin

Car Toning

Published by:

Established toning used by car manufacturers. This procedure can be performed by adding the mass of the glass during its manufacture tinting additives, as well as by vacuum plasma spraying thin layer of metal on the surface of the glass or by pyrolysis. Established toning characterized by high quality and durability, which is determined well-functioning industrial technology. The disadvantage of the standard tint is only a high degree of light transmission due to the need to satisfy regulatory requirements completely different countries, as well as impossibility of removing the standard tinting without complete replacement set of glasses. Toning Toning spray coating technology is similar to the standard method of toning.

The only difference is that the spraying produced without the use of the vacuum chamber. The method of toning spray is much cheaper, but such a level of quality tinting is quite low, even if it was made at the factory in compliance with all professional qualifications. Toning spray has a very low wear. This means, first of all that damage this coating can easily and sand, and even cleaning glass. There also a large probability of chipping around the rear window heating filaments. Non-vacuum deposition and not dismantled. The collection of all the above properties toning spray makes it the least popular with consumers. Tinting film Because of its practicality, simplicity and relatively low cost, glass tinting film is now the most popular way of toning.

As the merits of this method include the following: a wide range of films of different colors and light transmission, the possibility of removing the film and its replacement by another, a significant weakening of penetrating into the cabin Car infrared and ultraviolet radiation, which allows to protect the interior from overheating and burning, and the relative ease of application of the film, the increased structural strength of glass-film significantly complicate the lives of criminals and reduces the risk of injuries in accidents, improved insulation of interior – the noise level is reduced by 3-5 dB. Tinting car windows film is not only the most popular method, but also the most affordable, high quality and reliable. With many advantages of its competitors, for tinting film has its flaws. That is why many experts recommend tinted glass car film rather than spraying.
