Sonya Conti Now in the Light Space & Time Artist Showcase

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery announced today that Sonya Conti is now featured in the Gallery’s Artist Showcase.

Jupiter, Florida -- September 15, 2011 -- Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery announced today that Sonya Conti is now featured in the Gallery’s Artist Showcase. Mary was in the gallery’s initial competition in July 2010, Surfaces. Since that time she has entered and participated in additional gallery competitions and in all cases placed very high in the judging with her work. Her “Peony Poetry” won the gallery’s “Colors” Art Exhibition in November 2010. Most recently Sonya participated in the gallery’s “Seasons” art competition where she was awarded Honorable Mention for her work titled “January’s Return”.

Sonya states that “family, friends and relationships extend my concept of art. Too often find that the need is there to convey to the viewer "all" of one's history (biography) to hold the attention of the listener. It is only of late that realize the need to return to the basics, portray the image (concept) rather than a manuscript of words for mental stimulation.”

Sonya goes on further “as an artist, painter I want my work to express emotion, convey an atmosphere to the viewer within the boundaries of the canvas. Discovery of the elements; water, earth, air, temperature, color as a child would explore and experience for the first time is the intent. It is that discovery that changes the art and connects us in life as individuals.”

In her artist statement Sonya details her intent as a painter and an artist. She questions herself by stating "Am I a Painter slow to apply the title Artist? Is one less than the other and is there a distinct difference in these "titles"? At the core, the very heart and spirit of intent when creating a brush stroke on the canvas I travel the path of observation, color, composition and memory. There in is the painter who calls this process an artistic challenge. It's the work; not the title of the one with brush in hand. More importantly has the work provided my artistic statement in life? Each piece has a story; elements of water, fire, earth air, time space and human existence cover the conceptual original work.” Sonya's Website can be viewed here:

ESCATEC passes audit for ATEX qualification for the production of equipment for use in explosive environments

ESCATEC, the EMS innovator, has passed the ATEX Production Quality Assurance audit for the production of equipment for use in explosive environments for the fifth year in a row.

Heerbrugg, Switzerland - September 15, 2011 -- ESCATEC, the EMS innovator, has passed the ATEX Production Quality Assurance audit for the production of equipment for use in explosive environments for the fifth year in a row. Using an ATEX accredited manufacturer means that customers only have to obtain product approval which reduces time to market and costs significantly as, without an ATEX accredited partner, each production lot needs to be ATEX approved. Also ESCATEC’s sophisticated component tracking systems covers the ATEX audit process for critical components.

It is unusual for a contract manufacturing company to offer such demanding level of quality assurance,” said Martin Kingdon, ESCATEC’s Business Development Director. “Most contract manufacturers compete on being able to offer the lowest possible price but ESCATEC has always competed on quality and precision. Having our production facility here in Switzerland set up to meet the highly demanding QA standards to pass an ATEX audit means that all our products are made to the same high quality standards whether they need ATEX certification or not.”

ATEX certification means that equipment can be used in hazardous environments where there is a possibility of explosions such as chemical works, mining and the petroleum industry. The electronics and any batteries must be designed so that there is no possibility of a spark that could ignite an explosive chemical.

At present, the ATEX certification is just for ESCATEC’s production facility in Heerbrugg, Switzerland as the products that have been made for customers so far have only been in low volume in the thousands of units a year range. “However, should a customer want to ramp up to high volumes, we can achieve certification for our volume production facilities in Asia giving them the benefit of lower costs,” added Martin Kingdon. “This can be done very quickly as we keep our Asian manufacturing facilities very closely in line with our Swiss ones so that production can be transferred without a hitch, right down to the same models of machines so that the instruction software that has been fine tuned in Switzerland runs immediately in Asia.”
