Britain, like many other countries, is investing large sums of money in high speed rail (HS2). The aim is to create space on overcrowded networks and enable large numbers of people to move more efficiently.
It means a new line that doesn’t physically overlap or affect existing regional services, but one that takes long-distance travellers onto new high speed trains with fewer stops, thus completing their journeys in less time than ever before. Continue reading
Mechanical Engineering is vital to everyday life and has been around for centuries. It shapes the world in which we are living and the future on which we rely. From basic objects like wheels to the ever useful screws and inclined planes, from cars to aeroplanes, from paperclips to the rail industry, from bridges to skyscrapers, they all work under the foundations and principles laid out by the laws of mechanics.
We have seen how machines have made our lives easier and the wonders of mechanical engineering. But what is the future of engineering? Continue reading
As part of a £1 million plus investment programme, PRV Engineering now offers a new steel framework fabrication and concreting service. Designed as an extension to the services the company already provides for the construction industry, and for businesses that are very cost conscious, PRV’s new facility is the ideal solution.
A NEW Steel Framework Fabrication Service Continue reading
There are many methods employed in Tool Making, ranging from the traditional processes to the more modern methods using CAD designs and CNC machining. It goes without saying, that the technique employed depends upon the quality, precision and quantity of tools required.
With improved machining technologies and design capabilities, it has become easier to produce high performance precision manufactured tools. However, designing and making these tools requires a great deal of planning, high performance equipment, technical know-how and of course, skill.
So, what should you take into consideration when searching for a good tool making service?
Last year we wrote a post about the introduction of 3D printers to industry.
We made some assumptions about how education, engineering and architecture industries would be likely to use this latest technology. Well 18 months down the line, let’s take a look at the developments of 3D printers and see how they are being used.
The commercial cost of 3D printers has reduced and their use seems to have been incorporated into just about every industry possible.
Hollywood and the film industry has embraced 3D printing wholeheartedly, with costumes, models and monsters all now being made using 3D printing techniques. This 3ders.org article tells in more detail how the production of concept models etc. is much quicker and easier using the latest technology. Continue reading
