Great road cars, sports cars and racing cars all have one important thing in common – total design and engineering! These are not just sports cars; they’re automotive engineering genius. With such striking features, phenomenal power to weight ratio, intelligent design and mind-blowing top speeds, who wouldn’t want to get behind the wheel?
Since the introduction of the CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machine back in the 1940’s by John T. Parson, they have been praised for being accurate, fast, consistent and flexible. Since then, we’ve come a long way with machines like our VTC-5-Axis and Mazak Integrex i400. These machines are better, faster and capable of achieving Continue reading →
We are in a race for space travel once again and through the imagination of movie producers and the real advancements in technology, we are all hooked. Movies like Star Trek, Star Wars and a few others did a great job at capturing our feelings and imagination. Even though it may have been science fiction, it’s the sheer possibility of space exploration that drives our love of astronomy and our desire to learn more.
Space is not infinite and somehow there must be an end to it. But if there is, nobody on Earth has figured out where it is, at least not yet. The only thing that has brought us to “the end of the universe” is our limited ability to see deeper into space.
We are getting closer though with advances in technology and propulsion like Continue reading →
The Future of Mini Drones or MAV’s (Micro Air Vehicles)
Drones have been around for some time but the on-going technological development in advanced engineering is astonishing. Can you imagine a swarm of robotic and autonomous insects?
When you think of mosquitoes, there really aren’t many good things to say. They often carry potentially lethal diseases such as malaria. Mosquitoes are annoying and their bites can be really painful, itchy and irritating.
This is not what Zoologists from the University of Oxford and the Royal Veterinary Hospital in Japan are focusing on though. In fact, they’ve discovered something very interesting. Continue reading →
On Tuesday next week, the Southern Manufacturing and Electronics 2017 Show kicks off. One of Europe’s top events in engineering technology, it attracts some of Europe’s top engineering companies as both exhibitors and visitors.
Running over 3 days, 21st – 23rd March the show has over 800 exhibitors and showcases an incredible array of machinery, electronics, components and production hardware as well as specialist engineering services.
PRV Engineering will be attending the Southern Manufacturing and Electronics Show again this year and will be located on stand N92.
