  • Kingpins24: Automation, Hemp and Circularity Lead Conversation

    The ins and outs of advancing circularity, efficiency and the production of hemp fibers were key topics during Kingpins24, the virtual industry event organized by Kingpins Show. The three-day event gave companies across the denim supply chain the opportunity to present their latest technologies and solutions to reduce the industry’s impact on the environment.

    For its latest innovation to streamline the production of denim, Jeanologia turned to industries where humans and robots produce in the same work space for inspiration.

    Taking a page out of the automotive sector’s playbook, the technology company presented Handman, a finishing system that is equipped with two robots and eight lasers. The systems require two people to load jeans onto hangers, or “collaborate” with the robots, ultimately leading to 10,000 finished jeans in 24 hours with zero waste.

    Cone currently uses Jeanologia’s G2 ozone finishing ranges, lasers and Bluescan machinery. Maggard reported that the company is in the process of installing a Zero Liquid Discharge wastewater treatment system at its mill in Northern Mexico. “These investments will enable us to make significant advances towards Cone’s 2025 water usage reduction goal,” he added.

      by [email protected]

    • Feds say man broke into public water system and shut down safety processes
      by Chris Little
      Nope, not Oldsmar. This is a whole other example of someone logging into a municipal SCADA system and attempting (unsuccessfully) to endanger public safety. Again, this is as much a story about a failure of process as it is about a failure of technology.

      What, if anything, have you started doing differently since the news about the breach at Oldsmar?
      Indictment underscores the potential for remote intrusions to have fatal consequences.
