According to Skift and Peak DMC, a global travel expert network, more than 72% of consumers would rather spend money on "experiences" than things. In that light, the new Illinois Made "Art-is-an" interactive itineraries were created to drive tourism to the state by highlighting truly local experiences tourists can't find anywhere else. They include: New Illinois Made partnerships include a first-of-its-kind tourist attraction launching this summer on the Chicago River. Shoreline Sightseeing will offer Illinois Made themed cruises in June and August where tourists and locals can experience an authentic "Taste of Illinois" culinary cruise featuring food and beverages from Illinois Made artisans. "This year's National Travel and Tourism Week theme recognizes 'Faces of Travel,' saluting the amazing people behind the travel industry. Here in Illinois we want to recognize and promote more of our Illinois Made artisans who are small businesses and job creators helping to drive the state's economy," said Cory Jobe, Director of the Illinois Office of Tourism. "The expanded Illinois Made program will attract new visitors to explore our state, while supporting local businesses and generating important tourism spending for our communities."

Patent
DMC, Inc. | Date: 2015-03-11

A family of swaged connectors (10, 40, 50) has particular application for joining segments of copper cable (17) that make up a subterranean grounding grid in an electrical utility substation. The connectors have a body member (12, 42, 52) with at least one swage region (24, 44) having a trough (16) for receiving an electrical conductor (17). The swage region (24, 44) has an opening extending the length of the trough (16) to allow insertion, in a radial direction, of the electrical conductor (17) into the trough (16). An insert (14) is configured for mating engagement with the opening in the swage region (24, 44), such that, when the insert (14) is mated with the body member (12, 42, 52), an electrical conductor (17) disposed within the trough (16) is radially entrapped in the connector (10, 40, 50). The connector body (12, 42, 52) and insert (14) have a cylindrical outer surface in the swage region (24, 44) to facilitate swaging the connector to secure it to the electrical conductor. The connector may be configured as a lap splice, tee or elbow.

An improved connector for ACSR cable includes a connector core having an axial bore dimensioned to receive the steel core of the cable. A connector body has a substantially cylindrical outer surface and a substantially cylindrical cavity. A distal portion of the cavity having a first substantially cylindrical inner surface is dimensioned to receive the connector core. A second portion of the cavity proximally adjacent to the distal portion has a substantially cylindrical second inner surface dimensioned to receive the aluminum conductor strands of the cable. The connector body may be configured with one or more additional portions of the cavity having substantially cylindrical inner surfaces with progressively increasing diameters, the number of such portions depending on the size of the cable. The connector body is compressed with a swaging tool at several axially spaced-apart locations to grip the aluminum conductor strands and also to compress the connector core.

An improved cable connector includes a connector insert having an axial bore dimensioned to receive the core of a reinforced cable. A connector body has a substantially cylindrical outer surface and a substantially cylindrical cavity. A distal portion of the cavity is dimensioned to receive the connector insert. A second portion of the cavity proximally displaced from the distal portion is dimensioned to receive the conductor strands of the cable. The connector body may be configured with one or more additional portions of the cavity having progressively increasing diameters, the number of such portions depending on the size of the cable. Alternatively, the inner surface of the cavity may have a slight taper. Using a single die, the connector body is compressed with a swaging tool at several axially spaced-apart locations to grip the conductor strands and also to grip the connector insert.

An improved cable connector (20) includes a connector insert having an axial bore dimensioned to receive the core of a reinforced cable (10). A connector body (22) has a substantially cylindrical outer surface and a substantially cylindrical cavity. A distal portion of the cavity is dimensioned to receive the connector insert.

A repair sleeve has first and second end portions, each of which has a substantially cylindrical outer surface. The end portions are bored to receive a cable of a particular diameter. The inner surface of each end portion may be stepped or tapered. The center portion of the repair sleeve, between the two end portions, has an interior diameter substantially larger than the nominal diameter of the cable so that the repair sleeve can be use on a frayed cable or a cable with a failing splice. The repair sleeve is split longitudinally into two interlocking portions, which, when separated, allows the damaged cable or failing splice under repair to be inserted into a first one of the portions in a radial direction. The other portion is then inserted into the first portion and the repair sleeve is swaged onto the cable.

A swage tool includes a first die (26) coupled to a portion of a first die block (35) and a second die (26) coupled to a portion of a second die block (36). A cylinder (4) moves the second die toward the first die . The first die block (35) rotates about a longitudinal axis of the first die block (35).
