After 45 years in the fastener industry, Joe Greenslade will retire at the end of 2015. Salim Brahimi of IBECA Technologies Corp. will succeed Greenslade as the Industrial Fasteners Institute director of engineering technology. Joe Greenslade Salim Brahimi Greenslade told the Southwestern Fastener Association that he originally planned to work two more years, but decided he wants to spend more time on volunteer work.  As a high school student he was not oriented toward going to college. The father of another student became a mentor to Greenslade and encouraged him to go to college. As Greenslade completed his degree at Texas A&M in 1970 he went to thank his mentor, who said helping someone else was the best way to say thanks. Greenslade entered the fastener industry with Camcar-Textron and Rockford Headed Products and established his own dimensional calibration company, Greenslade & Co. He has authored many articles and served on ASME B1 and B18, ASTM F16 and SAE fastener committees. Greenslade helped with efforts for the U.S. Fastener Quality Act and the Aerospace Screw Thread Conformity Task Forces and been an A2LA board member. In 2007 Greenslade sold his company and became the Industrial Fastener Institute's director of technology. Greenslade has led the process of converting the traditional IFI Fastener Standards texts to online and developing the IFI Technology Connection, which provides fastener technical tools and support. Web: Greenslade expanded his volunteer mentoring work helping low socio-economic students at his alma mater high school in Texas to apply to college and for financial aid. Now he is getting involved in setting up mentoring programs at other high schools. Assisting high school students improve their circumstances through higher education “is the most rewarding thing I have ever done,” Greenslade told FIN.  Email: Brahimi, from Quebec-based IBECA, has been in the industry for 25 years. Brahimi is a licensed member of the Quebec Order of Profession Engineers and holds a master of materials engineering and a graduate diploma in management from McGill University – where he is completing a doctorate in fastener hydrogen embrittlement. Brahimi is chair of the ASTM Committee F16 on Fasteners. He received the Fred F. Weingruber Award from the F16 committee for “outstanding contributions to the development of fastener standards, especially in the field of hydrogen embrittlement.”  He authored the first ASTM standard dealing specifically with electrode posited coatings on fasteners and was chair of an ASTM task group on hydrogen embrittlement. Brahimi also serves as head of the Canadian delegation to ISO Committee TC2 on Fasteners and vice chair of the Research Council on Structural Connectons. He is a member of the SAE Fastener Committee and an instructor with the Fastener Training Institute. This year the IFI presented its Soaring Eagle Technology Award to Brahimi for significant contributions to technological advancement of the industry.

In September and October 2013, President of People’s Republic of China, Mr. Xi Jinping presented the strategic conceptions of building “The New Silk Way Economic Belt” and “The 21st Century Maritime Silk Road” respectively. Later these two conceptions are referred as One Belt And One Road (OBAOR). It’s worth mentioning that the Belt connects China with Central Asia, Mid-East, Southeast Europe and Western Europe, while the Road connects countries in East Asia, Southeast Asia, South Asia Sub-continent, Arabian Peninsula, and North Africa, etc. In the aspect of High Speed Railway Construction: In the Executive Meeting of State Council which was chaired by Prime Minister Li Keqiang , it was decided that the railway construction should quicken its steps. Based on this instruction, China Railway Corporation has raised its construction goal this year, within which the fix-assets investment will raise from 700 Billion CNY to 720 Billion CNY. In 2015, there will be 12 high speed railways putting into construction. Total running mileage will reach to 8,887 miles in two years. The development of high speed rail construction will bring higher demand of railway fasteners. In the aspect of Wind Power Industry: In February this year, National Energy Bureau has released the monitoring results of Wind Power Industry in 2014. Based on the statistics, the newly increased capacity of the whole year has achieved 19.81 million KW, which hit a new record. It is estimated that the scale of wind power will grow dramatically in the areas of North China, Northeast China, and Northwest China after promoting wind power industry in Mid-east China and Southern China. The development of wind power industry also bring opportunity to fastener industry. In the aspect of Nuclear Power Industrial Chain: It is clearly pointed out in the Action Plan of Energy Development Strategy in 2014-2020 that by 2020, the total nuclear power capacity should reach 58 million KW, while there will be over 30 million KW nuclear power under construction. However, by 2014, the operating units and the units under construction are less than 50 million KW. Still there is a huge space for growth. With the plan of restarting nuclear power, there will be a peak time for input and output in nuclear power industry. With advantages of high technology and high cost-effective ratio, nuclear power has become the major driving force for China’s “Walking out” Strategy. A analyzer told that most of countries, whose nuclear power generating capacity takes less than 6% of the whole generating capacity are developing countries around One Belt and One Road. The export of nuclear power will welcome its spring day under this circumstance. OBAOR brings positive influence to the development of China’s western area and coastal area. Great changes can be seen in the field of Infrastructure Construction, Transportation Industry and Trade & Services. All these changes also lay profound foundation for the development of fastener Industry.

According to two sources familiar with a European Commission proposal, the European Union will impose anti dumping duties later this month on imports of stainless steel cold rolled sheet from China and Taiwan.   The EC plans to set tariffs of about 25% for imports from China and of about 12% for Taiwanese product, following a complaint lodged in May 2014 by the European steel producers association, Eurofer.   The EC will present its proposal to EU member states next week and by March 26 will put in place the duties, which are provisional pending the outcome of an investigation due to end in September.   Eurofer said that China and Taiwan shipped EUR 620 million worth of cold rolled stainless steel into the EU in 2013, some 17% of the overall market, and were guilty of dumping, or selling at unfairly low prices. A parallel investigation into alleged illegal subsidies for Chinese producers is also due to end in September.   Europe's largest stainless steel producers are Acerinox, Outokumpu and Aperam. Chinese and Taiwanese producers include Shanxi Taigang Stainless Steel Company, Baosteel and Yusco.   The EC, prompted by Eurofer, is also investigating alleged dumping of grain-oriented flat-rolled electrical steel, typically used in transformers, by producers in China, South Korea, Japan, Russia and the US.   Eurofer is also seeking to prolong existing duties on Chinese imports of wire rod. Despite a lower euro and a slow pick up of European demand, European producers were still confronted with a massive increase of imports from Asia, and from China in particular.   Eurofer said that total Chinese steel exports rose to a historic peak of 93 million tonnes in 2014 equivalent to 60 per cent of total EU steel consumption. Chinese steel exports to the EU increased to 4.5 million tonnes last year from 1.2 million tonnes in 2009.   Eurofer believed the large expansion of China's steel industry does not reflect cost advantages but is based on state-owned enterprises raising capital on preferential terms, as well as other forms of subsidy. China's exports include not just basic products, such as hot rolled steel but also high end coated sheets.

Nine Fasteners Inc. continues its ascent in the solar industry by announcing the creation of a brand-new module-mounted Enphase trunk cable clip. NFI-1463 (5)This quality product is made of 410 stainless steel and has a rolled outer edge to prevent damage to the cable. The clip features a lead lip for easy handling and installation. The clip, with a part no. of NFI-1463, is the first clip that is designed to hold a single trunk cable and eliminates the need for a clip holding multiple trunk cables when a customer is working with just one. “The people we’ve talked to say it’s the best clip they’ve seen for this particular application,” said Vin Marino, Product Manager at Nine Fasteners Inc. “It works great, and with less material being used (than in a multiple clip), there’s less cost and therefore a lower price to the customer.” Before the development of this new clip, installers still had to use a multiple trunk cable clip even when it might not have been necessary. Nine Fasteners Inc. developed the clip in conjunction with: Enphase Energy, Quick Mount PV, and Ecolibrium Solar. After several months of design and testing help from their partners, Nine Fasteners Inc. was ready to bring the clip to market. “We’re very excited to be able to be the first to market with a clip with this functionality,” Marino said. “We believe the clip is going to serve a large need within the industry, and to be able to add this clip to the rest of our product lineup is something we’ve been looking forward to for a long time.”
