A Crash Course In Waterjet Cutting


Waterjet cutting is often used during the fabrication process of machine parts. This industrial tool is capable of cutting a wide variety of materials using a very high-pressure jet or stream of water. A mixture of water and an abrasive substance is also used in many applications. The highly versatile cutting method produces much less waste than other forms.

Waterjet cutting is also more environmentally friendly as it doesn’t produce dust, chippings or gas like other cutting methods. Engineering companies are implementing waterjet technology as a cost-effective, complementary machining method to cut parts to near-precise requirements. This greatly helps minimise waste, maximise raw material usage and accelerates overall production.

Energy Innovations For A Brighter Tomorrow

energy innovations

Over the next few decades, the world’s energy landscape as we know it will change dramatically. One decisive change is the ever-growing demand for power which brings about the need for new and better energy innovations.

Wherever there is an increase in access to reliable and affordable energy, people want to enjoy a higher standard of living. While that is certainly a good thing, at the same time, many of the world’s population lack access to even the most basic energy services.

Augmented Reality For Faster Construction

Augmented Reality

For some time now, many industries have taken to Augmented Reality (AR), or at least, thought about the technology. And why not as the AR market is expected to reach $60,55 billion by 2023 as more tech giants are linked to investments pushing the growth. Some of the major players involved in Augmented Reality investments and acquisitions include Google, Apple, Facebook, Samsung and Intel.

Augmented Reality is also known as spatial computing which is rapidly growing and expanding into several business and industrial applications. Spatial computing is a broad term used to describe how humans interact with computers in the same surroundings. This means that an Augmented Reality system makes it feel as if digital media is physically present thanks to interactive design and gesture.

Metal Fabrication And Conveyor Systems

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.
