Textiles and Delicate Engraving

Silk, Cotton and lace are all very fragile materials and you may be surprised to know that they can be machine engraved today. Engraved designs are just as precise as they are on metal and wood, but textiles do require a very specialist machine because they’re so delicate.

Textile laser cutting machines come in a range of shapes and sizes and many clothes manufacturers use these kinds of machines. This goes to show just how diverse laser engraving machines are, and you do get a ludicrous amount of precision. Most of the time, these machines are operated by pressing the start button, and the difficult part is making the design and uploading it, not the using of the machine itself.

So if you spend too much time hand engraving fabrics, try using special textiles laser cutter engraver, it could save you a great deal of time and money in the long run.


Metal Detectors – more than just a fun gadget

Many children are fascinated by metal detectors, and while they’re seen as a bit of a fun gadget to some people, there are systems that are extremely powerful and sophisticated.


Some industries use conveyor belt metal detectors to ensure that no metal is passed through with other materials, while the food industry is well known for using this type of detector, to guarantee that harmful materials are passed thorough with food products. Metal detection systems come in all shapes and sizes, but the technology is very much the same and it’s helped the military to search for ammunition and weapons, which was the main reason it was invented in the early 1900s.

Some people have a hobby based around using a metal detector, and the largest gold nugget was found using a metal detector in 1977 by prospector Ty Paulsen.

What You Should Know About Screw Compressors And How They Work


Screw compressors squeeze gas through the use of one or two screw gears. A screw compressor forces gas through the compression chamber through helical surface of two large interlocking screws that rotate. Screw compressors are considered to be very helpful and high efficiency products for a wide variety of applications which include process cooling, standard air conditioning, and temperature control, cold storage refrigeration among other pharmaceutical and environmental applications. The following are some of the very vital parts and screw compressors maintenance tips you should know;

The screw chamber

This system contains a specially designed chamber. It is here that the screw is located. The screw chamber is precisely engineered to very high tolerances so that no gas escapes between the screw and the chamber walls. When the screw compressor is turned on and the screw rotates, gas is let into the chamber. Thereafter, the gas is compressed through the chamber as the screw turns. Once it is compressed, the gas is forced into another chamber which is located below the screw chamber.

Understanding Conveyor Systems

Conveyor Systems are beneficial in terms of manufacturing, and they represent high quality technology at its best. Many manufacturing sectors will use accumulation conveyor systems, and these essentially offer a steady supply of products or equipment to a machine, where it will be picked up and moved on to the next step.


Accumulation Conveyor systems are completely different to indexing conveyor systems, and these will create the right amount of spacing between items. It’s a device that will meter out the products or objects into their ideal position, and they can actually be used with accumulation conveyor systems.

There are plenty of opportunities out there for manufacturing companies, and both of these conveyor systems are reliable, yet they serve different purposes, and it is down to the company to choose the right machine for their business.

Drink Manufacturing Processes

The drink manufacturing process is on that requires expert detail and a lot of care and attention. Filling canned and bottled drinks requires the right measurements of liquid, the right temperature for ultimate shelf-life and there are many different machines out there today that can make this process simple.


While one m part of the machine is releasing the liquid, the other part is getting the liquid to the right temperature, and the lack of human contact means using high tech equipment is a lot more hygienic.

Sealing is the final and most important drink manufacturing process, and a seal must be p;laced or tightened on firmly; allowing no air to escape, whilst it is vital to seal at the right temperature for many drinks, and machinery can ensure each aspect of the drink manufacturing process is completed to perfection.

How the Printing Industry has changed

The printing industry has certainly come a long way in the past decade, and of course before that time and this post will focus on the latest developments. There’s no denying the fact that many publications are now ‘off-the shelf’ and the printing industry certainly has had an effect on that.

Cost have risen for the price of ink and printing in general, and many people have questioned whether the high prices are worth the cost, especially today when you can read publications and books online. The printing industry has certainly suffered, but it’s important to understand that the art of printing is still alive.

Moving away from journalism, we can still see that there is a high demand for printed works, whether that’s in the form of signs, documents, letters and leaflets. Costs have risen, and the demand may not be as monumental as it once was, but technology has improved, and if developments continue with printing, then there’s certainly a place for it in the future.
