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 →
PRV Engineering tell us a bit more about the latest machinery to be installed
At the start of the year we reported that once again PRV Engineering had invested in new machinery. The latest addition is the large format machining equipment and we thought we’d tell you a little about why we chose the equipment we did.
First and foremost, the reason behind our continued investment in staff, premises and equipment is our desire to provide the best service possible to our customers. Quality is top of our agenda and that means both in terms of the product produced and the service provided – they go hand in hand. Continue reading →
Investment in equipment and staff is extremely high on the list of priorities for PRV Engineering. Quality and customer service excellence are 2 of the most important things for the company and to provide those things equipment and staff need to be of the highest level.
In 2016 more new machinery has been installed at PRV Engineering and staff have completed training so they are fully up to speed on the operation and capabilities of each machine.
When we say the beauty of waterjet cutting, we don’t just mean it’s a great, effective cutting process – we do actually mean the beauty that can be created with a waterjet. It’s a highly versatile cutting method that produces much less waste than other forms of cutting, which in turn allows for more diverse design. The ability to cut more intricate designs and patterns allows for more artistic license to be given to designers. More complex, artistic design often leads to a more beautiful end product.
So, we genuinely mean beauty in more than one sense.
The ability to cold cut means that almost any material can be cut without the adverse impact of heat; there is no heat affected zone. Multiple small cuts, swirls and channels can be made without the material bending, warping, burning or having any sort of reaction.
In addition to having no heat affected zone, what else makes waterjet cutting so versatile and effective in creating complex and diverse patterns and designs? Continue reading →
When you work in manufacturing you have a decision to make; laser, plasma or waterjet cutting? ‘Which one is best?’ is the first question that many people ask. The most up to date and technologically advanced must be the best, surely? Well that’s not the case. In fact there could be a case for using any or all 3 of the manufacturing processes depending upon your needs and what you value most from the machine.
Each has its own advantages and disadvantages, from speed to cost and even waste. So let’s take a look at each option. Continue reading →
