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.
The Directorate General
of Highways commissioned the Danjiang bridge in Taipei that will span the mouth
of the Tamsui River. Construction of the world’s longest single-mast,
asymmetric cable-stayed bridge is already underway and is generating quite a
Designed to connect to
the national highway system, the Danjiang bridge will help ease congestion on
the Guandu Bridge situated further upriver. The Danjiang bridge construction
will also facilitate the expansion of the Danhai Light Rail Transit which is part
of the city’s public transport system.
The construction industry has evolved significantly and with it, many new and improved methods including steel fabrication. If you think about skyscrapers, warehouses and shopping malls, almost every aspect in construction consists of structural steel. Steel framed structures are common across many construction projects including garages, residential properties and short-term temporary structures.
Steel fabrication is
used to create various components and products with different qualities for different
applications. Fact is, structural steelwork has been the primary choice for
most builders, engineers, contractors and structural steel fabricators. Many
industries rely on steel fabrication because of the quality, reliability,
flexibility, cost effectiveness and sustainability that it offers.
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.
As a manufacturer, you’re likely looking to save costs in several areas but none more so than fabrication. And this refers to everything from materials and labour to the shipping of fabricated components.
Everything boils down to identifying cost saving ideas that can really help improve your bottom line for optimal business growth. However, rushing into a decision and making big changes in a specific area may not be the right approach. Instead, implement several smaller methods to cut costs as it will ultimately lead to significant savings on your fabrication project.
While it is challenging to effectively reduce the cost of a fabrication project, it certainly is possible. The most important question here is, “How to minimise cost without sacrificing quality?” Continue reading →
