Using Industrial Cranes For Engineering Purposes

Industrial cranes are often used for construction and engineering purposes. These types of cranes are designed to perform repeated tasks, day in day out to a level that is often automated. They are built from highly strengthened steel, which increases their cost considerably compared to standard cranes. As a result they are often hired from crane lending companies. There are several different types of cranes that can be used for engineering purposes, but a main distinction between them is whether they are mobile or fixed. A fixed crane will be less versatile than a mobile crane, since it is static and cannot move to different lifting sites. While a mobile crane will be able to travel around, but won’t have the lifting capacity of a fixed crane. These characteristics will determine what... Read More »

Electric Chain Hoists Getting the Job Done Quickly

Electric Chain Hoist is an advance in technology has allowed the productivity in the world of business to increase and reduce costs at the same time. A chain hoist 1 tonne can do the work of several men or women in a fraction of the amount of time with the workforce is needed less. With a guide and an operator, can make your business more efficient, while investing in an electric chain hoist.

Maximising The Battery Life Of Power Tools

Many power tools use battery packs in order to keep them powered. It’s possible to improve the lifespan and battery life of power tools by keeping their battery packs in good condition. Maintaining A Battery Pack Battery packs are often charged on some kind of charge station, or directly plugged into a mains power supply. These charge stations often charge the battery to 100% capacity, the same is true if the power tool is plugged directly into the mains. To improve the life span of a battery pack it’s recommended to not charge the battery to 100%, but to around 85-95%. Charging the battery to 100% can cause it to lose cycles, and as a result lose power capacity. So charging to around 90% can actually increase the cycles, maintaining it’s... Read More »

What Is Non-Destructive Testing?

Many engineering jobs require a certain level of analysis before they can be carried out safely and successfully. Non-destructive testing is a way for engineering companies to carry out a wide group of analysis techniques. These techniques are used to evaluate the properties of a material, part, product, weld, or system without causing damage. Non-destructive testing can be a highly valuable processes. It offers the opportunity to save both money and time in product evaluation, troubleshooting and research phases of development. Non-destructive testing can include various processes including some kinds of microscopy to examine external surfaces in detail, as well as using a high-speed camera recording to detect any failures. Non-destructive testing is used in various different engineering spheres, including mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and civil engineering, as well as certain medical applications. Non-destructive testing services must...

Passive Building Design Philosophy

Passive building design is a way of designing a building so that the natural elements work in accordance with how that building is used. For example a home built with passive design design philosophies in mind would be constructed so that the climate of the area helps to maintain a comfortable climate for the occupants of a home. This can be done by orienting a home so that the sun shines into the living spaces, amplifying the heating of the home, if it is needed. An important consideration for passively designed buildings is that the passive design elements can be adapted and/or controlled in some way. While a passive building makes the most out of natural elements that are always working, sometimes these elements are not in tandem with what works... Read More »
