Tin and silver plating are essential for components designed to carry heavy electrical currents such as Busbars. It’s believed that silver is the best metal for conducting electricity making it a popular choice for electronics and semiconductors.
At PRV Engineering, we provide a high quality painted finish to very exacting standards. Our plating facility is testament to how we operate in terms of quality finish and zero tolerance on rejects. There is no better way of controlling quality than by doing it yourself which is exactly what we do. Continue reading →

When you think of structural steel fabrication and construction, what comes to mind first? Most construction projects consist of steel frameworks with skyscrapers, warehouses and shopping malls at the top of the list.
Many industries rely on structural steel fabrication because of the unmatched quality, reliability, flexibility, cost effectiveness and sustainability. But what happens when companies use non-compliant suppliers? Did you know that there are potentially over 7000 UK suppliers who are trading illegally? Continue reading →
It’s always only a matter of time before countries explore each other’s successes (or failures) and this is no different. Combat drones, powered by advanced technology like artificial intelligence, are the new ‘wingmen’ to Chinese carrier-based fighter jets. Essentially, it appears to be an attempt to compete with the prowess of the United States’ unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) programs. Some believe that it’s China’s version of the US Navy’s Unmanned Carrier Launched Airborne Surveillance and Strike (UCLASS).
According to Shi Wen, chief engineer and designer of China’s Caihong (CH), or Rainbow UAV series, “The joint operations of manned military aircraft, like fighter jets, and UAVs is the drone’s future. We are making efforts to promote artificial intelligence (AI) for UAVs to allow manned aircraft to co-pilot UAVs.”Continue reading →
