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.
Government, with Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson, has awarded Rolls-Royce

One wouldn’t normally associate electric military vehicles with performance and durability but this off-roader is in a class of its own. Late last year Nikola Corp showcased the world’s most advanced electric UTV and recently, the US marines had a go. Electric military vehicles have never looked this good and fun to drive.

Hypersonic travel is described as flight through the atmosphere below 90 km at a speed above Mach 5 (5 times the speed of sound). That means traveling from London to New York could only take about 2 hours. The concept has been around for a long time but applying the theory to practice is a different story.
It’s not an impossible task but the problem has always been how to handle the extreme heat at high speeds. Now, thanks to advanced aerospace engineering, a special ceramic has been developed making hypersonic air travel a real possibility. Continue reading →
Military institutions all over the world are constantly looking for ways to develop the next generation of weapons. These include tech like new combat helmets with HUD (heads-up display), improved body armor, future battleships, drones capable of delivering a deadly punch. Or what about a prototype hoverboard called the Flyboard Air for personal flight?
It’s also referred to as an Independent Propulsion Unit (IPU). It’s the result of a 4 year long research and development project headed by inventor Franky Zapata. Better known for the Water Flyboard he invented five years ago, more recent projects include Continue reading →
