Comments Off on Safety Tips on Using Drilling Tools

Man drilling a metal sheetAs if driving a nail through a wood with the use of a hammer is not hard enough, imagine drilling through a wall without the right tools. How can one possibly drill through a pure concrete slab without handheld drilling and power tools?

People in the past have done it in their own ways, but the presence of modern machines makes the job easier. But like other construction equipment, there are risks involved in using drilling tools.

Before your start drilling, here are some safety tips you should always observe to prevent mishaps:

Inspect

Always conduct a thorough inspection before using the tool. Check for signs of damage, breakage, loose wires, etc. Do not attempt to use tools that have seemingly minor damage, or try to do a quick fix and use it. Making sure your tools are in good condition is the first step to having a successful and safe working environment.

Wear Personal Protective Gear

Drilling through a concrete wall can have small and loose debris flying around as well as dust. Make sure you are properly protected. Wear goggles, masks, and gloves to keep yourself from inhaling dust, and loose debris from entering your eyes. Do not wear baggy clothes and always have your hair tied up (if you have long hair) to prevent it from getting stuck in the drill. 

 Use the Drill Properly

Make sure you know how to use the specific type of drill you have. Proper operation and handling are important to ensure the success of the job and to prevent accidents.

Emergency Response

Always have an emergency response plan. If you are working at home, make sure you have an accessible first aid kit should you sustain injuries while working.

Drilling is not rocket science, which is why many people know how to perform it. But the absence of proper training and skills can cause accidents. Always be on the safe side and take the right precautionary measures in any project to ensure safety.

UK-German Joint Venture to Build 8 New Satellites

Comments Off on UK-German Joint Venture to Build 8 New Satellites

Satellite in spaceA joint venture between Germany and the U.K. will see the construction eight new satellites for Europe’s global positioning system, Galileo. The European Space Agency (ESA) signed a deal with OHB-System for the manufacturing of new satellites.

The new orders will provide enough supply for spare spacecraft even if the continent already has a complete constellation.

Continual Partnership

OHB-System and SSTL will create the new satellites and will order materials from suppliers. These may include metal pressings here in the UK, like those provided by firms such as Winward Engineering LTD.

U.K.’s scheduled Brexit negotiations, however, remain a concern for SSTL since it may affect the project.

The European Commission, ESA and the London government will need to negotiate this issue in the near future. A satellite’s design serves as one issue that will be complicated since some aspects are classified, and only member countries of the European Union are to work on these components.

Meanwhile, manufacturers of a new rocket in Europe are reaching new progress ahead of scheduled launch in 2020.

Ariane 6

The development of the Ariane 6 rocket ship has inched closer to becoming fully functional, amid more than 100 tests for the Vinci engine, according to ArianeGroup CEO Alain Charmeau. The new rocket will replace the existing Ariane 5 spacecraft.

They expect the Ariane 6 to be similar to a “jack of all trades” launcher, as it will launch several types of space equipment from constellations to giant telescopes. The rocket will perform this through its two versions, the A62 and the A64.

It will also cover multiple tasks such as its predecessor’s heavy-lifting responsibilities and the medium-listing duties of the Russian Soyuz rocket.

The U.K.’s position in the European space market continues to be important, yet the government should ensure that Brexit negotiations would run smoothly to avoid complications on joint ventures and the development of new spacecraft.

Invest in the Right Tools

Precision is fundamental in the steel industry. Invest in the right machinery and equipment. You could get plasma tables and the latest cutting tools, for instance. If you intend to work with or hire other people, make sure they have the required skills to handle the equipment.

Work with a Mentor

Find an experienced or successful professional in the industry to guide you. A mentor can point out costly mistakes that you’ll need to avoid so your business can succeed. He can also share trade secrets that can help you gain an advantage.

The success of your steel business depends on the steps you take before you open the shop. By working with the right people and investing in the right equipment, you can give your business a great start.

Comments Off on 4 Reasons Having a Shipping Container Shelter is a Good Idea

Inside a container shelterShipping containers changed the transport industry back in the 1950’s. Almost 30 years later, the idea of converting shipping containers into a habitable building emerged.

Today, shipping container shelters are changing the building industry by offering a more affordable yet durable dwelling. They can be transformed into houses, offices and even rescue centres. Domeshelter.com.au outlines four reasons using shipping containers is a good option:

Cost-Effective

Cost is the main reason shipping container shelters are becoming mainstream. Building a home or a storage facility out of a shipping container is much faster yet less costly than building a traditional structure. The shipping container is already a structure that you can easily modify to form a new and sturdy building.

Durable

Shipping containers are built to withstand abuse, making them the perfect tools to transport materials to different locations. It is made of Corten steel that can withstand corrosion. These containers are resistant to fire and to damages from storms and earthquakes, making them virtually indestructible. This is why shipping containers are also used as emergency shelters during calamities.

Eco-Friendly

Container structures and shelters are eco-friendly, as they are made from recycled shipping containers. Recycling is good for the environment and can help lessen the effect of climate change. In fact, approximately 3,500KG of steel is being re-purposed by just recycling a shipping container.

Off-The-Grid Possibility

Being off-the-grid means being able to stand in a location without electricity. A shipping container shelter can be self-reliant and self-sufficient. It offers a small space and when properly insulated, there is no need for numerous appliances to be comfortable. Solar panels can also be installed as a source of electricity.

Shipping containers can help you build your dream home or get a reliable shelter for your goods at a lower cost. It is durable and strong, and with off-the-grid potential that could even yield bigger savings. Look for a contractor that offers this option in your area.
