Metal fabrication refers
to processes involving cutting, shaping or moulding a raw material (metal) into
a final product. Metal components are available in a wide variety of dimensions
and materials such as sheet metal, metal rods and metal bars. The metal
fabrication process involves a wide range of skills and disciplines from profiling,
bending and forming, cropping, coded welding to assembly and painting.
It is, without a doubt,
a specialist process that requires expertly trained staff and advanced machinery.
Coincidentally, those are also the two main factors to consider when looking
for a trusted engineering company. While modern technology, machinery and
computer aided design software have pushed fabrication services to the next
level, there is no substitute for experience.
Over the years advances
in technology and engineering have accounted for many innovations within the
defence sector. Last week we looked at naval vessels and today, we focus on the
Challenger 2 MK2 Black Night Battle Tanks.
The original Challenger
2 served with distinction in Bosnia, Kosovo and Iraq and now, the Ministry of
Defence (MoD) has extended its service to 2035. BAE Systems have introduced the
first working prototype of the Black Night upgrade to the UK’s main battle
tank, Challenger 2. It features a state-of-the-art thermal imaging system and
many improved defensive systems capable of challenging anything standing in its
successful engineering company with high quality fabrication services requires
knowledge, experience and continuous investment in the latest machinery. Investment
in equipment and staff should be extremely high on anyone’s priority list.
Quality and customer service excellence are two of the most important factors and
in order to provide that, equipment and staff must be of the highest level.
steel fabrication involves a complex process of turning steel into fabricated
products for a construction project or other industrial applications. Structural
steel has been a first choice in all types of construction and for quite some
time. Even the smallest project incorporates steel because it offers faster
construction among many other benefits.
steel fabrication and welding process is demanding and you should only consult experienced
fabricators. A less experienced company may not be able to properly perform the
tasks at hand which means they could compromise the product viability. Welding
and fabricating structural steel requires special expertise that only a few
companies share, PRV Engineering is right up there.
Another year has gone by and what better way to end it off than reflecting on the last 12 months. As a specialist engineering company, we work with a wide array of industries and our experience has enabled us to deliver interesting, relevant and informative articles. From engineering and manufacturing to new technologies, defence updates and future combat vehicles, we publish new content every week. After all, you can’t grow unless you learn something new every day.
With Christmas behind us and the focus shifting to the New Year, let’s take a look at some of the PRV Engineering blog highlights from 2018. Most articles focus on PRV Engineering services but we also added a few very interesting developments from around the world. Continue reading →
