Laser cutting equipment is a sophisticated machine that uses laser beams to cut through materials such as metal with pinpoint precision and at enhanced speeds. The benefit of laser cutting is that the cuts do not require reworks such as polishing and grinding to remove visual imperfections. Nowadays, fabricators can use computers to simulate laser-cutting tasks. Therefore, operators can estimate the duration of the laser-cutting process as well the exact number of pieces that would be produced over the period.
For anyone involved in maintenance or construction work, scaffolding is a vital part of their equipment. One of the questions that regularly occurs in these industries is whether your scaffolding should be purchased or whether you should arrange scaffolding hire every time you start a new job.
Should you buy or hire your scaffolding?
Purchasing your mobile scaffolding might seem to be an obvious decision. If you purchase it, then you only need to pay once, and the aluminium scaffolding will then be available every time you need it.
When it comes to shaping, cutting, and joining sheets of metal, many different techniques can be used. This article explores the most common, efficient and effective metal sheet fabrication techniques that are employed in industrial and manufacturing processes.
An important part of sheet metal fabrications involves joining two sheets of metal. Many techniques are used in this process in an attempt to achieve effective and high quality results, but few can compete with resistance welding.
Utes are made to take a licking and keep on ticking, but no part of a well-used ute takes as much punishment as the bed of its loading bay, and it's a fair bet that any ute that has been on the road for more than a few years will need its bed replacing at some point. To replace a ute bed damaged beyond repair, you could go to the original manufacturer for a replacement -- however, having a new bed custom made by a metal fabrication service is often the quicker, easier and less expensive option.
There seems little doubt that global warming is here to stay and is causing those weather "anomalies" to be even more regular. In recent years, freezing conditions have been evident in most areas across Australia from time to time and this should cause new home builders some concern if they are to avoid potential damage caused by burst pipes. If you're in the market to build a new property, why should you choose a certain type of piping, to make sure that you don't come up against this issue?
