Laser Cutting Machines & Their Usages

The phrase laser is utilised as a general name, but it’s truly a short from that stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. The high concentrated ray of light it generates can rapidly apply power even to a small area. It can be controlled easily through lenses and mirrors and fundamentally as light. It could travel at the highest possible speed, can travel in a parallel line in a vacant space and can broadcast info. With the attributes of laser light, a laser has discovered several uses; and cutting is one of them. Laser cutting machines operate by concentrating the massive volume of energy it generates in a minute area. The steady ray of light that strikes the area sources it to melt. As a cutting tool, a...

Managing Time Zones In A Global Business

With the advent of the internet and its effect on the global market, never has the need for companies to manage work in different time zones been so apparent. Smart companies embrace this by allowing their employees greater flexibility in when they work. This allows for more work to be taken on, but it also means that the guarantee of Saturday and Sunday weekends becomes a thing of the past. This type of working philosophy means that an employee who needs to work during the night or on a weekend, might not need to work during the day. They can spend that time instead with their family or pursue other goals they might have. However this can also mean that work is put upon employees unexpectedly due to the nature of working as and when... Read More »

Diamond Cutting With Industrial Laser Saws

The laser saw revolutionised diamond cutting when it was introduced in the 1930s, and remains a widely used cutting technology to this day. Many modern diamonds are cut using laser equipment which is far more accurate and efficient than many other processes. Diamond cutting and finishing has seen many advancements over the past 100 years. As technology has developed, so to has the ability for diamonds to be crafted. Diamond cutting and finishing has seen many advancements over the past 100 years. As technology has developed, so to has the ability for diamonds to be crafted. Laser Sawing works by mounting a stone onto a dop so it can be directed through a laser beam. The burned graphite from the high-temperature laser leaves a black mark around both sides of the... Read More »

Heavy Engineering Machines And Heavy Equipment Operators

Whatever the machine, heavy equipment operators are a valuable part of all large engineering and construction projects. Heavy equipment is the general term for large machines such as: Cranes, bulldozes, front end loaders, rollers, backhoes, hoists, graders, dredges, drills and compressors. This is just a selection of the equipment types used by equipment operators, there are many others. Hoisting and portable engineers also come into this area, as the equipment operated lifts and/or moves. Other equipment operators include mechanics, surveyors, or operating engineers. All of these roles make use of heavy equipment in some manner. In most cases, if it can push, pull, pump or lift material, rolls on tires or crawls on tracks like a tank, it’s the work of IUOE. On virtually all construction projects, operating engineers are the... Read More »

Creating A Crane

Cranes are versatile machines, used for many different engineering purposes. Once they are up and running, they can carry out the workload of the equivalent of hundreds of people. But for a crane to be useful, it first must be constructed. This is how a crane is made. A crane is put together from the necessary components. As the crane moves along the assembly line, the steel components are welded or bolted into place. The exact procedures followed during this process vary depending on the type of crane being assembled. For a mobile crane, the components are then assembled to a standardized truck or crawler of the appropriate type. The assembled crane is tested and shipped. Depending on the size and type of crane, it may be broken down into subsections to... Read More »
