When Should I Hire An Electrical Engineer?

Knowing when to hire an electrical engineer can be challenging. Whether it is for a job in your home, vehicle or electronic, choosing whether to hire an engineer, fix it yourself or just scrap it can be difficult to decide. So, today we are going to share with you when you should hire an electrical engineer near you. One of the main reasons why you should hire an electrical engineer is when it is not a simple fix. When you are unsure what is wrong with the electrical product but you still want to keep it. A professional electrical engineer will be able to find and solve the issue. You should also consider hiring somebody if you believe you will cause more damage than good. There is nothing worse than... Read More »

Bearings: How do they serve to reduce friction and allow for smoother rotation?

In order for a wheel to rotate, it needs to move. In order for a wheel to move, it must be connected to an axle. However, the axle also needs to be able to rotate – but how can something constantly rotating constantly moving? A bearing! Bearings are a piece of technology that allow axles and wheels (and other objects) constantly rotating constantly moving, allowing them do their jobs with ease and without getting worn down. Bearings come in two varieties: rolling-element bearings and plain bearings. Rolling-element bearings use components that can roll easily, such as ball bearings or roller bearings, while plain bearings contain static components which only support lateral movement. There are many different types of both rolling-element bearings and plain bearings; examples include ball bearing, roller bearing... Read More »

All About Electrical Engineering

Electrical engineering is one of the most common types of engineering around,. The types that when someone says they’re an engineer you will think of. Electrical engineering is essentially an electrician but there is much more to it. Today, we are going to share with you some facts about electrical engineering that you may not know. Electrical engineering focuses upon the study, design and application of electrical equipment. This includes things like computers, televisions, gaming console and lighting. Anything that is powered by electricity is designed and made by electrical engineers. Electrical Engineering has been divided into a wide ranger of sectors so people can focus highly upon learning one area rather than them all. Some of the sectors include computer engineering, electronics and signal processing to name a few.... Read More »

What Is Civil Engineering?

You have likely seen on ours, and many other engineering blogs, the words Civil Engineering. But, you may not be aware of what this actually is. Today, we are going to share with you all of the basic facts about Civil Engineering. Civil Engineering focuses on everything that has been built around us. Including things like roads, railways, schools, offices and bridges to name a few. The main role of a civil engineer is to create products that help to connect the world around us. They are creating the products that we take for granted and would be hard for us to now live without. These are the type of people who can complete a large array of tasks and engineering jobs. They spend years training to be able to... Read More »

Electric winches are widely seen as essential lifting equipment!

In the last decade or so, electric winches have developed from basic machine drive systems to be more complex machines with considerable power output and lifting capacity. The development of high-power-density electric motors has been a key factor in this process, as they allow for the increase in performance that is an essential requirement for modern production facilities. The electric winch is one particular component that has evolved considerably in recent years. They make light work of lifting heavy items. Load capacities range from 3,500kg to more than 15,000kg. The electric winch is an electrically powered machine that can be used for lifting and lowering loads in construction yards or on building sites. They are typically mounted on a boom (a telescopic arm), which makes them able to extend up... Read More »
