With 2020 just around the corner, we close off the
year reflecting on some of the most interesting developments over the last 12
months. As a specialist engineering and fabrication company, we provide
services to a wide range of sectors and across many areas. Our vast industry experience
means we’ve worked on so many different projects which have enabled us to
deliver interesting, relevant and informative articles.
We aim to keep everyone informed from engineering and
manufacturing to new technologies, defence updates and future combat vehicles.
For those who know PRV, we publish new content every week covering all sorts of
topics. Our belief is that you can’t grow unless you learn something new every
day. With Christmas behind us and the New Year approaching, here’s a look at
some of the PRV Engineering blog highlights from 2019.
Today, CNC Machining is involved in so many industries as these machines have revolutionised the manufacturing sector. These machines are widely used and some of the major players include aerospace, automotive, medical manufacturing, construction and woodworking.
Welding flux is crucial as a prime anti-oxidising
agent most commonly associated with arc welding. Choosing the right one will play
an important role in the final quality of the weld. As anyone in the industry knows,
becoming a welder is no easy feat as they are put to the test with extensive
training. Welders must familiarise themselves with the various weld types, practices
and the components for each welding method.
Did you know that flux core welding is known as one of
the oldest arc welding methods? In this case, age has no bearing as is it
remains one of the most effective and widely used methods for joining metal. The
way it works is pretty straightforward as flux prevents welds from interacting
with the environment, including air. Without flux, the base and filler material
will interact with the atmosphere forming oxides or other unwanted compounds.
Common techniques for joining two materials include fastening,
stitching and glueing but there’s no denying that welding provides the best
results. More specifically, one of the most modern methods is ultrasonic
welding. Compared to other joining methods, welds create stronger bonds that
last remarkably longer and a much better finish.
With only a few days until the 2019 Subcon Show at NEC
Birmingham, many exhibitors are gearing up for another exciting event. PRV
Engineering will once again be in attendance and exhibiting the best of UK
Manufacturing at stand E17. The success of previous years have attracted many
of UK’s finest making this a must-attend event (June 4-6).
