Learning about industrial marine design

People are often surprised to learn how much work goes into designing even the simplest objects in ships and boats, such as the beds and toilets. We have to design for all of the forces of the sea as well as corrosion from the sea water for outdoors objects. There is something really special about designing some equipment that can withstand all sorts of issues. This blog explains the design and manufacturing that goes into make marine grade items. It will be great for anyone who is passionate about the sea as well as students of industrial design and manufacturing.

Two Tips for Those Who Plan to Set up Sheet Metal Fabrication Facilities

If you will be setting up a manufacturing facility that will specialise in sheet metal fabrication, you may find these two tips to be helpful. Create as much distance as possible between the 'pedestrian' areas and dangerous equipment The process of fabricating sheet metal necessitates the use of a wide variety of hazardous machinery. For example, your facility will probably feature laser equipment to cut the sheet metal, welding equipment to join together separate pieces of metal and forklifts to transport the sheet metal from one processing area to another.

Emerging Trends in Santoprene TPV Application That Auto Shop Owners Know

Forty years since the discovery of Santoprene thermoplastic vulcanizate (TPV), its application is still not showing signs of slowing down. The steady use is attributed to increased capacities in research and development, as well as collaborations with consumers in finding the best application for TPV. If you are in the automotive repair business, then this is good news. It is an indication that the production and utilisation of TPV Santoprene in the automotive industry are moving in the right direction. Read More 

Top 3 Reasons Why Hydraulically-Operated Construction Machinery Require Routine Oil Flushing Service

The hydraulic pumps found in heavy construction equipment, such as cranes, dump trucks, loaders, forklifts, excavators, graders, and more are essentially fluid or lubricant circulation systems that power up the equipment to perform the work they do.   If you use hydraulically-operated machinery at your construction sites, oil flushing services should be included in equipment maintenance plans. Here's why. 1. Oil flushing helps minimise equipment failure. Equipment failure wastes time and costs money, so it is important to ensure your construction equipment works reliably all the time.

3 Key Benefits of Turnkey Solutions for Independent Solar Power Producers

Turnkey solutions have become commonplace because of various benefits, for instance, synchronised processes, faster production time and enhanced savings. The use of turnkey manufacturing in Photovoltaic (PV)  processes like designing of solar panels, testing, and installation is being adopted by many solar power producers, both small-scale and large-scale. Here are some reasons whyindependent solar power producers should consider turnkey solutions. 1. Reduced Production Time -- In turnkey processing, a contractor can begin construction or manufacturing before receiving all specifications from a customer. Read More 

How to prevent the water in your slimline tank from getting contaminated

Slimline tanks provide a cost-effective and convenient method of storing water for use when supply runs low. In fact, with a slimline tank, you can become completely independent of municipal water and reduce your overall utility bills. Slimline rainwater tanks are typically smaller and easier to install than round-bottom tanks. While they're not likely to become contaminated, there is always the risk of the water reservoir being penetrated by birds, pests, leaves and other foreign items. Read More
