Structural Steel Fabrication At PRV Engineering

Structural 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.

The structural 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.

Aluminium Fabrication: Benefits and Applications

aluminium fabrication

Several industries currently benefit from aluminium fabrication, which relates to the construction of metal structures by means of cutting, bending and joining. Most extrusions go through some form of further processes such as fabrication, machining and surface treatment. The properties of aluminium make extrusions highly suitable for almost any type of fabrication.

Although fabrication can be applied to any metal, aluminium is considered one of the most common. As a result, there is a big demand for aluminium fabrication services all over the world. If you look at your home or office building, aluminium is all around us. Some of the most common features are aluminium gates and aluminium frameworks used for doors, windows and showers.

Reasons for coating busbars

coating busbarsThere are a few reason for plating or coating busbars. Cosmetic reasons or provision of insulation are a couple but the most common reason for coating busbars is to inhibit corrosion.

Busbars are commonly made from copper, which in itself is quite resistant to corrosion but busbars are often used in environments where higher levels of protection are needed. Over time, copper oxidises and can impact the surfaces conductive properties. So plating or coating busbars, not only reduces corrosion but also improves the longevity and conductive properties of the item. Continue reading

The importance of finishing

Finishing image of industrial spray paintingFinishing any engineering job properly is just as important as any other operation along the production cycle. And by finishing the engineering job, we’re not talking about tidying the file and completing the invoicing. We are talking about the paint or powder coating finish to the product

The appearance of a finished product will always have an impact on the saleability. After all, if something looks rough and unfinished it’s less likely to sell. In addition, there’s the safety impact to consider. Rough edges and burrs can not only put buyers off but can be a serious health and safety risk. So an important part of finishing is to remove those risks. Continue reading
