¿Puede Ferrari volver a ser lo que era?

October 25, 2018

Ferrari y Sebastian Vettel ya no tienen el título y lo saben. De hecho, sería muy sorprendente que Lewis Hamilton no ganara su quinto campeonato en México este fin de semana. Sin embargo, para Vettel y la Scuderia, presentar un desafío coherente y constructivo en las tres últimas carreras podría ser motivo de optimismo en una temporada en la que han dejado escapar el campeonato. Después de mostrar un gran ritmo en el Gran Premio de Estados Unidos, donde Kimi Räikkönen ganó y Vettel creyó que tenía la velocidad para hacer lo mismo, pero por su penalización en la parrilla y su efecto, Ferrari parece haber encontrado de nuevo su mojo mecánico.

Lo hicieron, admitió Vettel, al hacer retroceder la mayoría de las mejoras que han traído al coche desde Singapur. El alemán dijo que había ido por el camino equivocado, lo que le había costado caro, y que había agravado ese error al ser lento a la hora de identificar por qué había perdido su ventaja de ritmo. Al mismo tiempo, Mercedes extraía más de su coche cuando importaba.

Women increasingly interested in video games

October 19, 2018

Video games are not men’s things, much less children’s. A study by the Spanish Association of Video Games indicates that 38.9% of players are adults. As for the gender of the player, 32.8% of women play video games and in the case of men the figure rises to 45.3%. The majority of both sexes play regularly and have nothing to do with the stereotype of player: they have high school and even university studies, and they don’t only play dress up games.

Surprising is that there are more young mothers (between 18 and 29 years) who play video games than women without children. They see it as a way of approaching and creating links with the youngest members of the household. In any case, they spend between half an hour and an hour playing for all the members of the family – who knew a few years ago! Surveys also include Facebook games and mobile phones, however, everything points to platforms like Twitch (a platform that serves to see how a person plays in real time), women still prefer to be anonymous for fear of being harassed through comments.

Best gear box manufacturers

February 22, 2018

Speed reducers are used to control and vary the revolutions per minute (rpm) of electric motors, as in most industrial processes the motor speeds are too high. The use of speed reducers gives us a smaller number of output rpm, but without significantly decreasing power, safely and effectively increasing torque. As we described earlier, electric motors could be defined as the heart of the industry, if we base ourselves on this mention we can say that the speed reducers are those that regulate the rhythm and speed required in each production process.

The gearboxes are designed based on gears, circular and toothed mechanisms with special geometries according to their size and function in each motor. But basically, a speed reducer is a transmission system characterized because its output speed is lower than the input speed. Kelvin gear box is one of the safest bets on this department.
