The Creative Content Guy

 
Greg ZappedPerhaps you’ve noticed the increased quality and style in Liberty Packaging’s shared content over the last year. This improvement can be attributed to our newest creative and tech staffer, Greg Spitz.  Certainly, his last two videos “Corrosion - Its Natural” and “ESD and Static - Fun With Science” are unique and engaging.  Greg took on two very complex subjects which continue to be studied in great detail by generations of scientists, engineers, and other specialists. There are associations, companies such as Liberty Packaging, seminars, white papers, trade shows and other groups specifically geared to the study and management of corrosion and ESD.  Greg stepped back to view the big picture on these issues and simplified them for two three-minute videos that just make sense. We urge you to take a look.

Along with being an excellent short-video maker and a student of physics and technology, Greg is a skilled musician who can play multiple instruments, with the guitar being his speciality. He currently sings and plays in the original progressive rock band, The Van Burens. The Van Burens have toured the United States, released two musical EPs, and can boast many fans within all age groups, especially here in the Northeast. For the Liberty videos, Greg writes the script, composes and performs the soundtrack, films and records content and edits.

Be sure to watch for new informative and entertaining video productions by Greg, coming soon.

Corrosion or Rust? Expert John Murphy To the Rescue

 
View Intercept Video

When a man spends his entire career searching for the best ways to safely control quality in the industrial workplace, he earns the wisdom to be called an expert. John Murphy, Liberty Packaging’s Director of New Business, is a veritable fountain of knowledge regarding detergents, solvents, packaging materials, corrosion, quality in manufacturing and related topics.

Storage and Preservation for Coins: It Matters

 
Coin Armour Intercept Packaging

From guest poster, Chris Iannucci: When I first began collecting coins and other collectibles about 10 years ago, I never gave much thought to proper storage and preservation. I just bought what I liked, and kept most items in a display case so I could view them from time to time or share them with friends or family. This gave me much enjoyment over the years.

Art Conservators are conservative.  Not necessarily in the political sense, but most certainly in their approach to their work. As well as they should be. Conservation-restoration is a profession devoted to the preservation of cultural heritage for the future. Words can be biased; objects and art may tell a more revealing story of a past society. The role of the conservator involves the examination, conservation, and preservation of cultural objects using any methods that prove effective in keeping that property in as close to its original condition as possible for as long as possible. Minimal intervention is a guideline a conservator must follow.

Intercept Packaging Neutralizes Corrosion

This year the ground hog, Punxsutawney Phil, Seer of Seers, Sage of Sages, Prognosticator of Prognosticators and Weather Prophet Extraordinary (his actual full name, I am a sucker for formality) pronounced loud and clear, “Get ready for an early spring!” I was happy to hear this. The sportsman in me is begging to get outdoors after several months of being relegated to four walls of my apartment, with the occasional reprieve to the gym or the ski slopes. I am sure I am not the only one.

Packaging the IEEE - an Association for Excellence in Electronics

 
Reliability Engineers Work Together

“We solve product reliability issues with our Intercept Technology barrier packaging” is one of my elevator speeches. Because of this association with and passion for reliability issues, Liberty Packaging is a member of the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) and the Reliability Society, a technical Society within the IEEE, the world’s leading association for the advancement of technology. The New York City headquartered IEEE is dedicated to the advancement of technical innovation and excellence. It boasts over 400,000 members in more than 140 counties.  The Reliability Society has 24 chapters and members in 60 countries worldwide. The Boston/New Hampshire/Rhode Island IEEE chapter whose meetings I attend, is recognized as one of the top three most active chapters worldwide every year. That recognition is a credit to its dedicated volunteer officers.

Of course, with attending organizational meetings, comes potential networking benefits, but more important to me is the wealth of information shared at these meetings.  The monthly topics presented by leading experts are fascinating and enlightening.  During the December 2012 meeting, Ted Dangelmayer of Dangelmayer Associates and author of two renowned books on establishing a successful ESD management program, presented on the problems of electrostatic discharge to electronic devices. The reliability group members are typically engineers, so the presentations can be quite complex, such as one coming up in February having to do with Photonic Magnetometry to be presented by Chris Sataline from Lincoln Labs MIT, in Lexington MA.  Keith Donaldson, Director of the Intercept Technology Group, and I presented a few years ago on the topic How Carbon Footprint, Green Initiatives, and Reliability Can Work Together or Against Each Other”  Our presentation was based on a Bell Laboratories, Alcatel-Lucent, environmental impact study for manufacturers.  In fact, that white paper is available by request through the Liberty Packaging web site.

Liberty Packaging has been and still is involved with a few other professional groups such as SME (Society of Manufacturing Engineers), NDIA (National Defense Industrial Association), ESDA (Electrostatic Discharge Association) and the afore-mentioned IEEE.  For folks looking to furthering their careers and their knowledge, I highly recommend attending and perhaps being involved in a technical association.

Intercept Storage Protection – Fabric

 
Fabric Tent Cover

To continue my series of household applications using Intercept to protect my personal belongings from rust/corrosion, mold and mildew, I present to you my backyard “Tent of Meeting”.  Liberty Packaging sells Intercept packaging to numerous companies in the United States for the protection of their industrial goods.  Intercept has allowed many manufacturers to ship and store products safely anywhere in the world.  Due to my experimentation and success with home use of Intercept for unusual applications, I daresay I’ll soon be Intercept’s best proponent.

The Trouble with Corrosion

Recent unseasonably warm weather in our area suggests there may be a bad corrosion season ahead of us. Corrosive gases are more active in warmer and more humid weather. To help you prepare, we offer:

Our short video: Do You Know What You're Spending on Corrosion?" The Intercept Technology heavy duty barrier packaging is simple, effective and easy to use in comparison with other old-fashioned barrier products. This video will tell you how.

Liberty's V.P. of Sales and Marketing, Joe Spitz, provides "6 Steps to Creating a Rust Inhibition Program" for your facility, including his "don't wait for the other shoe to drop" theory.

And this NACE International Video produced for The PBS Series "Spotlight On...." illustrates in horrifying detail why you should care about corrosion. "Spotlight On Corrosion"
