Explaining Magnetic Separation through Video

Demonstrating Metal Separation

Explaining the concept of Magnetic Separation through words alone can often be challenging.  The basic physics are simple.  A magnetic field attracts magnetically susceptible particles.  This then enables them to be separated from materials unaffected by a magnetic forces.

This magnetic separation technology in applied in industries as diverse as recycling to the production of baby food.  There is a wide range of different designs, types and strengths of Magnetic Separator.

To help explain and demonstrate Magnetic Separation, we are continually adding to our video collection on YouTube.

Our videos demonstrate a wide range of Magnetic Separation equipment and Factory Magnet Solutions including:

Is only a 7% growth in China cause for concern?

When the world’s second largest economy sets its GDP growth for 2015 at 7%, the lowest in a quarter of a century (as reported by PRW), does this cause us cause for concern?  Part of the issue is that exports from China missed their target for the third year running, although there was still a 4.9% growth, a figure that many European countries would grab with both hands.Bunting, Magnetic Separation, Paul Fears Photography

With the European economy stagnant, where can exporters target growth?  In another PRW article, the BCC is reported as stating that more exporters are the key to UK success, but they do not give any indication as to the key overseas markets.

China has been seen as the driving force of the World economy for the past decade, but is that now changing and will there be a greater emphasis on other markets such as India and South America?  The solid North American market is also a very attractive proposition for exporters.

Recently, we [Bunting] shipped a large order for Magnetic Separators to Italy for a project in Indonesia, highlighting the opportunities for business in other developing nations.

Nevertheless, are these latest statistics from China cause for concern?  Your feedback is welcomed.

Are British Exporters Feeling Positive?

Bunting at Interplas 2014-1573A report published online by ft.com states that UK exports to Europe are picking up.  These are positive signs against a backdrop of economic uncertainty in Europe, but is it too soon to start opening the champagne?

Exporting goods manufactured in the UK has been long promoted by the UK Government as being vitally important to boost the UK economy.  The amount of assistance provided and support for manufacturing in general is a very debatable subject, with strong opinions on all sides, but there is no doubt that increased support would help drive up UK exports.

The latest figures suggest that the EuroZone is picking up and UK Exporters are starting to ride on that new wave of confidence, but how fragile is it?  Recently, we [Bunting] attended a solids handling show in Barcelona in Spain called ExpoSolidos and were only one of two UK companies present (the other was Russell Finex).  Sadly, this is typical of many overseas exhibitions with a distinct lack of presence by UK manufacturers.  Feedback from the show indicated that the Spanish market remains challenging and, although people wanted to be confident, they remained cautious.  This highlighted that concerns still exist in the EuroZone, especially with the ongoing trials and tribulations with Greece.  The economy appears to be balanced like a spinning plate on a pointed stick.

So how do Exporters plan when the situation remains uncertain?  At Bunting, we have taken a pragmatic and positive approach and will be attending a number of exhibitions in 2015.  But do other UK Exporters feel positive enough to invest time and money in such direct marketing activities?  Your feedback would be appreciated.
