How Does A Fuse Work?

A fuse is a simple and highly effective way to protect a device from dangerous levels of current: 1. Current flowing through a conductor’s nonzero resistance leads to power dissipation. 2. Power is dissipated in the form of heat. 3. Heat raises the temperature of the conductor. 4. If the combination of current amplitude and […]

What is Wire Harnessing?

What is a Wire Harness? A wire harness, often referred to as a cable harness or wiring assembly, is a systematic and integrated arrangement of cables within an insulated material. The purpose of the assembly is to transmit a signal or electrical power. Cables are bound together with straps, cable ties, cable lacing, sleeves, electrical […]

Dangers of Injection Molding

Burns from hot plastic; injuries from expelled fragments; harmful effects from inhaled vapors or fumes; electric shock; crushed or amputated limbs; and even death – these are some of the hazards faced when working with horizontal plastic injection molding machines. Thermoplastic injection molding machines produce molded plastic parts by melting plastic pellets, injecting the molten […]

How to Insulate Your Wires

Heat- Shrink Tubing Heat shrink tubing, also known as heat shrink, is a shrinkable tube that shrinks when exposed to heat and is very useful in insulating wires. It looks a bit like some straw or hollow plastic coffee stirrer, depending on its thickness. The plastic tube surrounds two wires before being heated to solder […]

Welding Safety Tips

  Why Welding Safety Is So Important As welding presents many potential hazards, it’s crucial for welders to practice safety by taking the following steps: • Analyzing surroundings • Using tools and equipment in the way they are intended • Following all manufacturer guidelines • Ensuring others are not in harm’s way while working Accidents happen, but many injuries […]

Types of Welding and Their Uses

Welding is a fabrication process where two or more parts are fused together by the use of heat, pressure, or both, forming a join as the parts cool. Welding is usually used on metals and thermoplastics but can also be used on wood. Here we will discuss some of the most common welding techniques used in the […]

Standard Welding Tools For Beginners

Welding Gloves Gloves are pretty self-explanatory. Welding gloves consist of layers of robust fabrics and insulation, preventing injuries from heat and stray sparks. Welding gloves are easy to find anywhere you buy gloves, but they are essential to any form of welding you might do. There are usually 2 types you need to be aware […]
