ICML Marks 20 Years of Machinery Lubrication Certifications and Support with Special Activities

This 20-year timeline shows that ICML's responsiveness to industry needs has yielded consistent progress since its first exam 20 years ago, even during the 2020 pandemic shutdowns.

ICML’s First 20 Years: A History of Responsiveness and Progress

With 40 thousand certification exams completed, ICML continues its journey by acknowledging industry supporters and successful candidates.

BROKEN ARROW, OK, USA, January 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The International Council for Machinery Lubrication (ICML) marks its 20th anniversary of continuous operation this year with several ongoing activities and recognition opportunities.

The nonprofit organization began its longstanding certification program for lubrication and oil analysis practitioners in January, 2001. Since then, ICML has administered thousands of exams and has supported individuals and organizations through additional programs that strengthen machinery lubrication and oil analysis as technical fields of endeavor.

Anniversary activities this year will include special pricing offers and advertising opportunities, multi-media profiles of longtime members and certificants, and a redesign of the ICML website and online support tools. Details and updates regarding these activities will be posted to ICML’s website and social media channels throughout the year.

“ICML’s twenty-year history is one of team effort,” says Leslie Fish, ICML Executive Director. “We certainly would not be where we are today without our members and volunteer experts, nor would we be so well known were it not for partnerships and alliances with like-minded industry groups and independent training partners all over the world. With our celebratory activities this year, we hope to draw attention to their contributions.”

Rosania Kloss, ICML’s Operations Manager, concurs: “As someone who has been with ICML since the beginning, I am excited to see practitioners continue to appreciate what ICML has to offer.”

Established in part to help lubrication practitioners succeed in their professional careers, ICML conducted its first exam when five oil analysis practitioners gathered on January 26, 2001, to earn their Machine Lubricant Analyst credentials in Biloxi, Mississippi. (They all passed.) By mid-April ICML had launched its second exam type to test machinery lubrication technicians. ICML went international with its first overseas exams in the UK and Australia later that same year, then expanded into multiple languages in early 2002, and they haven’t looked back since.

In its first 20 years the organization has coordinated with a large network of independent training providers and allies to administer almost 40 thousand certification exams in nearly a dozen languages at over 48 hundred exam sessions across the globe. During this time, ICML issued 24 thousand professional certificates to oil analysts (MLA), lubrication technicians (MLT), laboratory analysts (LLA), and machinery lubrication engineers (MLE).

“The ICML fulfilled a previously unmet need in the field of lubrication and oil analysis,” says Noria Corporation CEO Jim Fitch, ICML's founding director and a current board member. “It serves the working class of our industry, people who nurture the health of expensive and critical machinery.”

"Through certifications, ICML has provided a vital measure of lubrication fundamentals to our industry, and this has enhanced the professionalism of its practitioners," notes ICML Board Chairman Bryan Johnson of Arizona Public Service.

When local governments worldwide implemented restrictions on physical gatherings due to the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic, ICML quickly pivoted to develop online exam options, rolling out this new opportunity last July.

"Twenty years ago, our founding members recognized the integral but underrated role of lubrication practitioners in the broad scope of machine maintenance and reliability," says Paul Hiller, ICML Marketing Manager. "But the journey to excellence should never end. So, it was important to us that we continue supporting our certification candidates and our training partners alike—and the online exams allowed us to do that.”

BEYOND CERTIFICATIONS

ICML consists of members, professional staff, and technical contributors from around the world. In addition to maintaining its fundamental role as a certification body for 20 years, ICML also oversees industry awards, professional memberships, and asset management standards.

ICML implemented its annual awards program in 2001, recognizing physical plants with the Augustus H. Gill Award and the John R. Battle Award for on-site programs that demonstrate oil analysis and machinery lubrication excellence, respectively.

Membership packages were revamped in 2019 and offer flexibility, benefits, and engagement opportunities for organizations and certified individuals who wish to support ICML’s mission, gain promotional exposure, collaborate with peers, and secure exam credits.

ICML engages subject matter experts to serve as technical volunteers on standing and ad hoc committees in such areas as test development, membership development, and awards assessment. To date, the crowning achievement of the volunteer force has been the simultaneous development of the ICML 55® Standards and MLE credential for machinery lubrication engineers.

“For twenty years, ICML has been playing an increasingly impactful role in standardizing machinery lubrication practices across industries with industry experts and volunteers," states ICML Board Member Yuegang Zhao of KPM Analytics, "especially after releasing the industry-first lubrication standard—ICML 55—and MLE certification in recent years.”

The ICML 55 Standards comprise requirements and guidelines for effective, certifiable management of lubricated mechanical assets. These standards are strategically aligned to ISO 55000 and are intended to support an organization’s physical asset management plans. Part 1 was co-authored by an international team of 45 technical contributors and was published in 2019: “ICML 55.1: Requirements for the Optimized Lubrication of Mechanical Physical Assets.”

ICML developed its management-level MLE credential in conjunction with ICML 55. The extensive, 24-part body of knowledge targets reliability and asset leaders. To date, this rigorous, exclusive credential has been earned by fewer than 100 practitioners worldwide.

ABOUT ICML

ICML is a vendor-neutral, member-based, technical nonprofit organization serving global industry since 2001 as the world-class authority on machinery lubrication that advances the optimization of asset reliability, utilization and costs. ICML consists of both paid professional staff members and volunteer committees. It is a certification body serving industrial lubrication and oil analysis practitioners worldwide; a technical awards body recognizing companies that excel in oil analysis and machinery lubrication programs; and the developer of ICML 55 standards for lubricated asset management.

Defense Metals Corp. (TSX:DEFN.V)

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, January 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Media alert for Defense Metals Corp. (TSX-V: DEFN / OTCQB: DFMTF / FSE: 35D) from Investorideas.com Newswire. The company was featured in the following article : “LYNAS RARE EARTHS, DEFENSE METALS, ARAFURA RESOURCES – RARE EARTHS: STILL IN TIME TO GET IN BEFORE THE BOOM!”

Full article and Original source
https://news.financial/comments/lynas-rare-earths-defense-metals-arafura-resources-rare-earths-still-in-time-to-get-in-before-the-boom

Excerpt:
China has dominated the rare earths market for a long time. A supply shortage in the People's Republic and a substantial increase in demand can lead to a massive price increase of the commodity group at any time. These price increases are then often reflected in the share price of relevant players. Rare earth metals are in demand in a wide range of industries and to close the emerging supply gap the production of rare earth metals must be increased outside of China. We present three opportunity stocks that will benefit from industry trends and scarcity prices as producers or prospective producers.

DEFENSE METALS CORP – TEST WORK PLANNED (TSX-V: DEFN / OTCQB: DFMTF / FSE: 35D).
The Canadian exploration Company is focused on advancing the Wicheeda Rare Earth Project, which covers approximately 1,700 hectares in the state of British Columbia. The resource estimate includes 4.89 million tonnes of indicated light rare earth elements (LREO) at an average grade of 3.02% and an inferred resource of 12.1 million tonnes at an average LREO grade of 2.90%.

Recently, the Company announced that it would receive government funding in conjunction with the Saskatchewan Research Council to provide financial support for technological innovation. Specifically, the project is to conduct test work using an innovative X-ray method to improve the recovery of rare earth metals. The government will cover 70% of the costs.

Things are moving forward at Defense Metals. The Company is benefiting from rising rare earth prices and from further development of the project. With a current market capitalization of CAD 25 million, Defense Metals is still a bargain.

Nexus Gold drills 20 meters of 4.83 g/t Au, including 14.51 g/t Au over 6m, at the Dakouli 2 Gold Project

Figure 1: Table of Significant Drill Results, Maiden Drill Program, Nov-Dec 2020

Figure 2: Dakouli concession with Sabce shear zones in red

Figure 3: Visible gold in quartz sample recovered at the Dakouli 2 concession, November 2018

Maiden drill program results in discovery; lengthy, high-grade intercept among several positive results at the 100% owned Burkina Faso, West African project

Nexus Gold Corp (TSX:NXS)

VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA, January 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Nexus Gold Corp. (“Nexus” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: NXS, OTCQB: NXXGF, FSE: N6E) is pleased to report initial results from its recently completed phase one Reverse Circulation (“RC”) maiden drill program at its 100%-owned Dakouli 2 gold exploration permit located in central Burkina Faso, West Africa.

The RC program at the 9,800-hectare (98-sq kms) concession consisted of 2,914 meters of exploratory drilling. The program was designed to test several areas that have returned either high gold values from rock samples or coincidental soil geochemical and geophysical anomalies proximal to artisanal workings termed orpaillages.

Significant results were encountered in hole DKL-20-RC-007, which returned 4.83 grams-per-tonne (“g/t”) gold (“Au”) over 20 meters, including 14.51 g/t Au over 6m (also including 39.6 g/t over 2m). Other significant results were realized in hole DKL-20-RC-009, which returned 1.61 g/t Au over 10 meters, including 4.11 g/t Au over 2 meters, and DKL-20-RC-010, which returned 1.89 g/t Au over 8 meters, including 6.54 g/t Au over 2 meters. In addition, several holes returned lengthy intercepts of sub-one gram gold, including DKL-20-RC-006 which returned .33 g/t Au over 36 meters, including .59 g/t Au over 18 meters, and DKL-20-RC-002 which returned .64 g/t Au over 16 meters.

The gold mineralization encountered in the Northeast zone consists of disseminated sulfides, containing pyrite, chalcopyrite, galena, and particles of visible gold. The mineralization occurs at or proximal to contacts between clastic sedimentary rocks and Mafic volcanics rocks. The mineralized zones are part of pervasive hydrothermal alteration developed in these highly strained sedimentary and volcanic rocks. The company is interpreting the foliation observed in the RC chips as being loosely sub-parallel to the dominant foliation fabric of the Sabce shear zone. Assays are pending for the remaining six holes and the Company will report those results once received, reviewed, and verified.

“This new discovery is very exciting. The intercepts we have encountered from the northeast corner of the property are indicating a broad zone of gold mineralization,” said VP Exploration, Warren Robb, P.Geo. “The extent of the mineralization is encouraging and certainly requires follow up with diamond drilling. This will allow us to generate better data concerning the nature of the mineralization and the lithologic and structural aspects of the host rocks. The location of the drilling corresponds well with our interpretation of the location of the Sabce shear zone and our ground geochemistry and termite sampling suggest that this mineralization may extend for at least a kilometer to the south west,” continued Mr. Robb.

“We’re certainly pleased with the early results at Dakouli,” said President & CEO, Alex Klenman. “The drill program has confirmed widespread mineralization in the northeast zone of the property. Positive results, particularly like those received in hole 7, in this, a relatively small maiden drill program, is both significant and encouraging. And beyond the target areas we tested in this first phase, Dakouli presents a potential district-scale opportunity with numerous targets yet to drill, and a lot of ground still in need of detailed reconnaissance. We like what we’re seeing so far and look forward to the next phase of drilling,” continued Mr. Klenman.

The RC drill cuttings were bagged in the field and then taken to a secure compound where the intervals were split using a riffle splitter with one split being placed in a tagged 3-mil poly plastic bag. The samples were then shipped by Company vehicle to the ALS Global Geochemistry Lab located 100 kilometers south in the capital city of Ouagadougou. ALS Global is an ISO certified laboratory and is independent of Nexus Gold Corp and its subsidiaries.
The maiden Dakouli drill program was designed to initially test depth extensions of geochemical gold anomalies identified through termite mound sampling, soil gold geochemistry which identified three trends intersecting the property (see Company news release dated June 11, 2019), and finally rock geochemistry which has returned higher grade gold results from selective grab samples extracted from Artisanal mining areas (“Orpaillages”) (see Company news releases dated January 8 and 15, 2019, June 23, 2020, and September 10, 2020).

The Dakouli 2 permit is located on the Goren greenstone belt, proximal to Nordgold’s Bissa Mine, and is bisected by the gold bearing Sabce shear zone.

Warren Robb P.Geo., Vice President, Exploration, is the designated Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 and is responsible for, and has approved, the technical information contained in this release.

CARSON, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Technical rescue ultimately involves using specialized tools to secure the safety of those who might be in danger. It can include vehicle extrication, rope rescue, water rescue, or even search and rescue. A trained technical rescue team is often used for this type of work because they are able to exceed the capabilities provided by emergency medical services.

Is A Career in Technical Rescue for You?

If you are strong in spirit, caring, a team player, and a hard worker then it may be that technical rescue is for you. Those who work in technical rescue are closet superheroes. If you’re a firefighter, then technical rescue team training can make you better at your job. It can also help you to advance your career as well. Some industrial facilities have their own in-house rescue team. They are assembled to meet the various rescue scenarios that may arise at the facility. These teams are made up of normal, day to day employees who might have day jobs, but who get extra training so that they can be on the rescue team.

If you do not work in an industry where there is a need, then it’s possible for you to become part of a local rescue group in your own town or even country. If you are cool under pressure and you have skills that are in demand then you have nothing to worry about, a job in rescue could be right for you.

Enthusiastic Community

Rescuers tend to be passionate and they are also very enthusiastic about the way that they work. Every single rescuer lights up when talking about their work, and the mere thought of what they do gives them great satisfaction in life.

Ups and Downs

Knowing that someone is going to be able to enjoy the rest of their life as the result of your own actions, is a nice feeling, to say the least. If you are considering a career in technical rescue, then you need to know that not every rescue operation is going to have a good outcome. Technical rescue situations can easily turn into recovery operations before you are even able to think or do anything. Sometimes bad outcomes happen even though you did your best. This is something that you have to think about because not everyone is able to deal with this kind of pressure.

Common Characteristics for Someone who Works on a Technical Rescue Team
If you want to make sure that you are a good fit for technical rescue, then simply look below to see some of the most desirable characteristics.

Altruism

Having a selfless concern for others is a very strong motivator for those who work in rescue.

Team Player

Taking pride in teamwork is another fantastic quality.

Social

Some rescuers would say that the people who they work with are their best friends.

Hard Worker

Rescue does require a great deal of effort. You can’t blink your eyes and have the job done. Sometimes you might need to put in an uncomfortable amount of effort, but either way, there are lives depending on you.

Strong of Spirit

There will come a time where you will need to make decisions and you will also need to accept responsibility for the outcome as well. If you approach your training and any operational responses with honesty, and if you do everything you can, then there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be a good fit.

Adrenaline Junkie

If you love adrenaline and if you believe that you are able to work under pressure, then it may be that a job in rescue is for you. You will experience plenty of heart-pounding moments and you will also need to work with a lot of other things going on.

Closet Superhero

If you feel as though you have a heart of gold and if you want to help people, then it may be that you are a closet superhero and want to do everything you can to ensure the safety and happiness of others. This is a fine quality, and it may mean that you are entirely suited to a job in search and rescue.

Technical rescue can be a daunting process, to say the least. If you take the time to make sure that the career is the right fit for you and if you look into the job requirements properly, then you’ll soon find that you are able to really feel comfortable in your work while also getting a great deal of satisfaction.

IPT Group acquires PRIMOVE E-mobility Wireless Charging technology portfolio

PRIMOVE

IPT Wireless power drives mobility

IPT PRIMOVE Z-Mover

PRIMOVE and IPT share a wealth of technology, market experience and installed base. IPT has an ambitious product development strategy.”

— Richard van den Dool

EFRINGEN-KIRCHEN, BADEN-WüRTTEMBERG, DUITSLAND, January 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — IPT Group, holding company of IPT Technology, one of the leading global manufacturers of wireless charging and electrification solutions applied in industrial and e-mobility applications, has acquired PRIMOVE, the e-mobility inductive charging technology portfolio from Bombardier.

With this acquisition, IPT combines two cleantech scale-ups in wireless power transfer for e-mobility benefiting from synergies, thereby accelerating IPT’s offering of a complete product portfolio to serve various markets.

“By acquiring PRIMOVE we’re complementing our existing IP and product portfolio and speed up our product-to-market plans,” says IPT’s management, Richard van den Dool and Victor Hoynck van Papendrecht. Both IPT Technology and PRIMOVE are global leaders in wireless charging technology and innovative pioneers with various pilots, prototypes and proofs of concept. Since its start in 2008, PRIMOVE has developed a strong patent portfolio for E-Mobility applications and delivered impressive innovations, achievements and technical knowhow. Next to bus applications, PRIMOVE has invested substantially in light-duty vehicle applications. IPT Technology has its roots in industrial wireless applications and has developed heavy-duty e-mobility solutions. By combining the technology and expertise of both companies, IPT is strengthening its market position and accelerating its business planning.

“PRIMOVE and IPT share a wealth of technology, market experience and installed base. IPT has an ambitious product development strategy”, says CEO/CCO Richard van den Dool. “Now the global energy transition and change-over to battery-driven vehicles are taking off; we need to accelerate our product development. Our focus will move from research, concept and prototype phase, to developing serial products.” Smart City, Smart Mobility, Industry 4.0, Autonomous Driving and other Megatrends are highly dependent on the availability of wireless electrification facilities. “Market demand for static and (semi)dynamic wireless charging applications will boost for all types of transport vehicles by rail, road or water. IPT is fully prepared for this, but we gain direct access to PRIMOVE’s IP, knowhow, and experience with this strategic takeover. That will save time and resources, that now can spend on new developments.”

“IPT Technology is ready to scale up its product development capacity,” according to CEO/COO Victor Hoynck van Papendrecht. “IPT has developed a solid base for further growth, and strongly believes in co-operation and partnerships to build the future. Accelerating and realising our ambitions require strategic and financial partners. With the acquisition of PRIMOVE, we strengthen our product portfolio while improving our proposition as a technology provider. PRIMOVE has always focused on light-duty cars (power range from 3-22kW) and heavy-duty applications (200kW). IPT’s focus has been on Industrial Mobility, making IPT the trusted partner for leading industrial companies to dynamic wireless empower their daily processes.”

With different markets and R&D approaches for light-duty charging solutions, both companies are complementary to each other. PRIMOVE has invested substantially in developing their Z-Move, an industrialised 3.6kW charging solution for the light-duty car market that includes an impressive metal detection and positioning system. Whereas PRIMOVE approached the car market top-down via OEM’s, IPT worked bottom-up by conducting selected pilots. The first pilot with Daimler started in 2012, followed by pilots with Porsche, Streetscooter (DHL) or EON. Currently, IPT is occupied in a Pan-European charging project driven by the EU (Horizon 2020 – User-Chi).

“We will finalise and complete the developments of PRIMOVE’s Z-Move and implement the first pilot in Barcelona at the end of 2021,” says IPT Management. Early 2021 IPT will also participate in an innovative project driven by the UK Government (OSRIC=On street Residential Inductive Charge) for which IPT has developed an underground charging solution. This allows 14 cars (different models) to be wirelessly charged overnight via the existing lamppost infrastructure keeping street clutter clean. IPT’s market experiences and pilot agenda combined with PRIMOVE technical leadership and advantages will be a great synergy.

The overlap between the two technologies is clearly on heavy-duty bus applications. IPT has been developing and installing wireless charging solutions (60-100kW) for buses since 2004. IPT’s first-generation charging solution was installed in Turin for 23 e-buses and still is in daily operation. IPT’s 3rd generation Charge Bus technology is used in different European cities, including London and Madrid. With this acquisition, PRIMOVE’s 200kW expertise and installed based in Berlin, Mannheim, Braunschweig or Bruges will be added to the IPT portfolio. Thereby all wireless charged busses across Europe come now from the same team!
Christian Köbel, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at IPT says: “We will further optimise and combine both technologies and build a next-generation Bus Charge for depot and opportunity charging. But Bus will just be one of our focus segments. We also have an ambitious roadmap for static and dynamic wireless electrification, such as car, truck, ship, forklift, AGV/RGV or sorter line applications. With our roadmap, we will offer operators, owners and individuals an exciting range that facilitates their next step towards a wireless future.”

Terms of the deal are not disclosed.
