Plastic Fantastic: The Advantages Of Choosing TPV For Car Component Fabrication

When the average motorist inspects their vehicles, they generally focus on substantial metal components such as engine blocks, brake discs and differentials, while neglecting the smaller, more innocuous components. However, the components of your vehicle made from plastic or rubber, such as air hoses, window weather seals and airbag covers, are just as important to a safe, comfortable drive as their more substantial counterparts. Consequently, the market for plastic and rubber aftermarket components is consistently high, and fabricating them can be a lucrative business indeed. Read More 

Pre-Insulated Pipes: Their Structure and Various Uses

Pre-insulated pipes which may also be referred to as insulated pipes are pipelines extensively used in homes and factories to prevent freezing in water supply pipes and to reduce heat loss in heating ducts. The main purpose of these pipes is to maintain the temperature of the liquid or gas in the pipes.  Other reasons for using pre-insulated pipes are: limiting condensation Protecting personnel from extreme temperatures Minimising harmful emissions The most common types are the single pre-insulated pipes, though the practice of insulating two pipes in one casing is picking up.

Keep This in Mind When Selecting a Grade for Your Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is a popular metal. Its special attributes make it useful in both domestic and commercial applications. Despite its high tensile strength and levels of hardening, you can still count on stainless to be malleable and workable. This allows you to cut, bend and manipulate the material in several ways. However, this will depend on the grade of stainless steel that you choose. The grades are fabricated using different techniques, an element that leads to variations in their tensile strength and other characteristics. Read More 

Choosing the Right Sheet Fabrication Equipment for your DIY Projects

Working with metal sheet can be exciting for DIY enthusiasts due to the material's versatility. Unlike other types of materials commonly used by DIY enthusiasts, sheet metal can easily bend depending on the shape you want it to take. However, achieving the required form for each project requires a bit of not only skill but also strategic decision making in your choice of sheet metal fabrication equipment. That being said, although various metal fabrication tools can achieve bending of a piece of metal, the ease of producing the curves depends on factors like shape variation. Read More 

Structural Steel Fabrication – Getting The Job Done Right

Companies that need to use large pieces of steel or steel beams are unlikely to be able to get the items they need off the shelf. These need to be custom made to fit the exact requirements of the project, and this is where steel fabrication comes in. Without the right steel fabrication, an engineer would be unable to complete his bridge and a contractor would be unable to find the parts required to complete a steel building. Read More
