Custom injection molder Plastic Components Inc. has named Derrill Rice president and CEO. The move, announced Sept. 14, follows the purchase of PCI in March by Cleveland-based private equity firm MPE Partners from founder and former CEO Tom Duffey, who remains as an adviser to the board of directors. Rice comes to PCI after serving as president and general manager of TE Connectivity Ltd.'s aerospace, defense and marine division.
Engel Holding GmbH will show highly integrated manufacturing cells at Fakuma 2017 — including an all-electric e-mac injection press in a new clamping-force class, the first Clearmelt exterior component, a new compact pipe distributor for clean rooms and high-precision processing of liquid silicone rubber. On the e-mac press, Engel will mold 40-pole nylon connector housings for vehicle doors.
There's more going on than never-ending miles of corn fields in Nebraska — some innovative injection molding is going on, at HTI Plastics in Lincoln, Neb. Yes, this month, Best Practices takes you to the Cornhusker State. KraussMaffei Group selected HTI as a U.S. beta test site for its new all-electric injection press, the PX. HTI will act as a host site for the machine for a year and then have the option to purchase it. It makes sense that HTI got one of the first PX presses.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
