Robotics of all types and sizes with various applications have made headlines around the world adding fuel to the innovation fire. The oil and gas industry has always been a leader in pushing the boundaries of disruptive technologies. Now, with rising interest and investment, subsea robotics has the potential and power to transform the oil and gas sector as a whole.
Technological advancements and the continued race for
innovation in nearly every industry is evident across the globe. For some time
now, oil companies have turned to robots and drones to perform dangerous activities
in the harshest environments. While some of the ‘oil and gas tech toys’ help save
costs, many of them greatly improve performance and safety. This is as a result
of fewer people being exposed to dangerous tasks and situations.
Metal fabrication is used to create various components
and products with different qualities for numerous applications. In fact, metal
fabrication services have been the primary choice for builders, engineers,
contractors and structural steel fabricators around the world. It is
undoubtedly a specialist process that requires expertly trained staff, advanced
equipment, quality workmanship and finishing.
If you are looking for a reputable metal fabrication
company for your next project, you should know how to narrow down the list.
Here are a few of the major factors you need to consider when choosing a metal
fabricator. Choose wisely and it could be the best investment for your project.
The right company could help save on costs while providing exceptional
finishing and quality.
Animals have long-inspired innovative engineering designs
as they’ve evolved perfectly, as nature intended. This provides the ideal
solution to environmental challenges, something European manufacturer, Airbus, hopes
to achieve as they revealed a brand new concept hybrid-electric aircraft.
Liam Fox, UK Secretary of State for International
Trade, unveiled the “Bird of Prey” concept at the Royal International
Air Tattoo air show last month. At first glance, it is evident that this new
hybrid-electric aircraft got its inspiration eagles, hawks and other aerial
predators. Airbus revealed this new concept aircraft with the intention of
inspiring the next-generation of aeronautical engineers.
The construction industry has evolved significantly
with many new and improved methods such as structural steel fabrication. This
process, along with welding, is demanding and you should only consult
experienced fabricators as it requires expert knowledge, skills and resources.
For a successful project, from manufacturing
structural steel beams and steel balustrades to components and equipment, every
good fabricator should follow a specific process. A less experienced company
may not be able to perform the necessary tasks which could compromise product
Considering the rapid advancements in technology, it’s
easy to forget some of the revolutionary inventions of the 20th
century. Some of these inventions have resulted in products or services we take
for granted today.
Many emerging technologies can be attributed to one,
or several, earlier inventions. A prime example of an obsolete technology that
has transformed the modern world is cathode ray tube monitors. While it was
prominent in earlier years, they were quickly replaced when LCD and plasma
screens were invented.
