Custom Fabrication Services At PRV Engineering

custom fabrication

Successful engineering companies use a combination of expert knowledge, experience and continuous investment in machinery and staff. Custom fabrication services require all of these elements and more as quality and production costs are the top priority. Custom fabrication is a specialist process whether you’re machining steel or aluminium.

Metal fabrication, for example, involves a wide range of skills and disciplines from profiling, bending and forming, cropping, welding to assembly and finishing. While technology, machinery and computer-aided design software have led to advanced custom fabrication services, there is still no substitute for experience.

Deep Hole Drilling And Multi-Tasking Machining

deep hole drilling

Deep hole drilling, often referred to as gun-drilling, is a highly-specialised machining operation that only a select few engineering companies can perform. This method is used when high-precision round bores are vital to the operation. It produces holes that can be controlled within very tight tolerances, giving much greater accuracy compared to conventional drilling methods.

Why Silver Plating Outshines The Rest

silver platingSilver plating refers to the process of covering a conductive surface with silver to prevent corrosion while adding a lustrous shine to it. Not that silver plating is all about looks and it certainly doesn’t mean second on the podium either. In fact, it’s the best metal for conducting electricity which makes it a popular choice for electronics and semiconductors. We believe that silver plating is a critical Continue reading

What’s Trending in Waterjet Cutting

waterjet cutting

Over the past few decades, abrasive waterjet cutting have evolved significantly. From a relatively crude cutting tool in the early 1980’s to a more sophisticated machine tool used in various sectors ranging from aerospace, mining to the food industry. This evolution is mainly due to better material development, more efficient system design, improved control of the waterjet tool and the progression to achieve higher pressure. Continue reading
