Glen-Gery is the first brick manufacturer to win Best in Class in Architectural Record's Advertising Excellence Awards.
August 1, 2017
Glen-Gery was recently recognized at Architectural Record’s annual Advertising Excellence Awards breakfast in Orlando, Fla., as part of the 2017 AIA Convention. Each year, a jury of leading architects carefully reviews and rates ads in the building and design marketplace, along with the companies and agencies that produce them.
Wider channels in extra-large kilns allow an increase in the number of incoming tile and therefore boost kiln output compared to other machines of the same length.

The roller kilns in the XXL family, which feature extra-large channels from 3,500-3,850 mm wide, are the biggest in the Sacmi single-layer kiln range. Wider channels allow an increase in the number of incoming tile and therefore boost kiln output compared to other machines of the same length. For example, the XXL 385 kiln lets manufacturers position a row of four 800 x 800 mm porcelain tile (with subsequent squaring), three 1,000 x 1,000 mm tile or two 1,600 x 3,200 mm slabs.

The event will feature more than 600 exhibitors and 115 hours of programs and networking opportunities to provide insights, access, and technical and business intelligence for attendees to get ahead and embrace today’s disruptive landscape.
Perhaps the most impactful invention in modern history, the transistor is at the core of semiconductor devices and has dramatically transformed virtually every industry while helping spawn many new ones. As illustrated in Figure 1, today’s microchips can contain over a billion transistors and are improving our cars, phones, and refrigerators—empowering internet searches, genetic research, and smart sensors. How different would our world be today without these integrated circuit (IC) “microchips?”
Single-element transducers are often the most cost-effective option for signal generation and sensing applications, while multiple ceramic element transducers are best-suited for high power or large displacement applications.
Transduction refers to the conversion of energy from one form to another. In terms of piezoelectric transducers, it means the conversion of electrical to mechanical energy and/or vice-versa. This is made possible by the inclusion of active piezoceramic components in the transducer, and can take place in a variety of mediums (e.g., air, liquid, etc.) using a variety of transducer designs.
