Epson 3D Printer Can Create Your Very Own Plastic Anything

Friday, August 12th, 2011

Epson has outdone themselves with creating something I would have only dreamed of having when I was a youngster.  Epson’s new printer named Object260 Connex, is a 3D printer that works with your computer and accompanying software to create physical 3D objects.  In other words, you can program the printer to create your own action figures!

During a convention in Vancouver recently, Epson brought along some Hollywood examples of how its multi-material Objet260 Connex helped movie makers craft prototype creatures before they were inserted into the storyline.

Yes the printer can be used by manufacturers to create prototype tools, appliance parts and other sorts of important things, but honestly, who wouldn’t want to have a ready-made action figure printer at their disposal?  The current price tag is around tens of thousands of dollars, but don’t worry, I’m just waiting till the price drops to get my own.

WGN Kid’s Day Fair!

Saturday, August 6th, 2011

Abt made a special appearance at Chicago’s WGN Kid’s Day Fair yesterday morning.  It was a great turn out with over 2,500 kids showing up playing games, taking picture with Benny the Bull and other WGN Channel 9 personalities.

Abt was handing out rulers, pencils, pens, backpacks and  squeezable Abt Truck toys all to help promote excitment for the upcoming school year.  Special thanks to Cari Boyk, Steve Shapiro and Jessica Santa from Abt for their involvement in the event.  I think a few of the Abt Employees may have had a bit more fun that some of the kids from the looks of it…

Com Ed and Abt: Working Overtime

Monday, July 25th, 2011

ComEd customer demand reached an all-time high peak usage milestone late Wednesday, with demand reaching 23,753 megawatts, exceeding the utility’s previous peak of 23,618 megawatts on Aug. 1, 2006.

With the increasing temperatures and wild storms, all of us here at Abt are putting in a little extra work too, and making sure our customers keep cool and their power stays on.  Our demand for air conditioners and generators have increased drastically the last week.  This extra work hasn’t slowed us down at all though.  “Sales are through the roof, trucks were making up to three pick ups a day”, said John Panchisin, Abt’s store manager.  Panchisin also added that his trucks have been picking up generators and AC units even in the middle of the night to keep up with demand.

If you are still looking for an A/C or need a generator to get your house back in working order, give us a  call at 888-228-5800 or shop our site.
