Conveyor Systems

Definition : Conveyor systems are common pieces of mechanical handling equipment that move materials from one location to another. Conveyors are especially useful in applications involving the transportation of heavy or bulky materials. Conveyor systems for Melbourne businesses allow quick and efficient transportation of a wide variety of materials, which make them very popular in the material handling and packaging industries.

Hydraulics

Definition : Hydraulics is a topic in applied science and engineering dealing with the mechanical properties of liquids. Fluid mechanics provides the theoretical foundation for hydraulics, which focuses on the engineering uses of fluid properties. In fluid power, hydraulics is used for the generation, control, and transmission of power by the use of pressurised liquids. Hydraulic topics range through most science and engineering disciplines, and cover concepts such as pipe flow, dam design, fluidics and fluid control circuitry, pumps, turbines, hydropower, computational fluid dynamics, flow measurement, river channel behaviour and erosion.

Onsite Welding

Definition : Onsite welding is the fabrication or sculptural process that joins materials, usually metals or thermoplastics, by causing coalescence. Onsite welding is often done by melting the work pieces and adding a filler material to form a pool of molten material that cools to become a strong joint, with pressure sometimes used in conjunction with heat, or by itself, to produce the weld.

Pneumatics

Definition : Pneumatics deals with the study and application of pressurised gas to effect mechanical motion. Pneumatic systems are extensively used in industry, where factories are commonly plumbed with compressed air or compressed inert gases. This is done because a centrally located and electrically powered compressor that powers cylinders and other pneumatic devices through solenoid valves is often able to provide motive power in a cheaper, safer, more flexible, and more reliable way than a large number of electric motors and actuators.

Pneumatics also has applications in dentistry, construction, mining, and other areas.
