Welding — one of the OSHA-defined “hot work” activities — is a major task in many

Welding — one of the OSHA-defined “hot work” activities — is a major task in many industries. You’ll find it performed in manufacturing, fabrication, and repair work. In fact, anywhere two or more materials must be joined together, welding will likely be present. While each type has its own benefits, advantages and uses, they all have one thing in common: they’re very hot! These procedures have the potential to harm people, property, and the environment, so developing a safe welding program is essential. In this article, we’ll look at several tips and best practices for improving welding safety. The list is by no means exhaustive. Nor is it meant to provide legal or regulatory advice. But it should give you and your team some great talking points as you develop your own program. Welding can be performed anywhere: from the shop floor to outdoors… and even on the roof. So start your planning with a site hazard analysis. A thorough, eyes-on approach works best. Identify flammables, ignitables, and other materials that can be affected by intense heat. This includes gasses, vapors, mists and fumes. And don’t forget combustible particulate solids, such as grain dusts. Identify any pot...

Laser cutting metal is nothing new, but recently it’s becoming more and more accessible to the

Laser cutting metal is nothing new, but recently it’s becoming more and more accessible to the average hobbyist. Follow these simple guidelines to design your first laser cut metal part! In short, a laser is a focused beam of light, concentrating a lot of energy on a very small area. When this happens, material in front of a laser will burn, melt, or vaporize, making a hole. Add some CNC to that, and you get a machine that can cut or engrave very intricate parts made of wood, plastic, rubber, metal, foam, or other materials. Every material has its limitations and benefits when comes to a laser cutting. For instance, you may think that a laser can cut through anything, but that’s simply not the case. Not every material is suitable for laser cutting. That’s because every material requires a particular amount of energy to be cut. For example, the energy needed to cut through paper is a lot less than the energy needed for a 20-mm thick steel plate. Keep this in mind when buying a laser or ordering through a laser cutting service. Always check the laser’s power or at least what materials it can cut. As a reference, a 40-W laser can cut through paper, cardboard, foam, and thin p...

Technology continues to evolve in the field of LV power distribution and protection. 30 years ago

Technology continues to evolve in the field of LV power distribution and protection. 30 years ago the specifier/installer was typically faced with the decision on what size fuse wire to use. Now they must consider which MCB or RCBO to install, with even more choice than ever on what levels of protection against the effects of electrical fault to afford. Due for release in the summer of 2018, BS 7671: Requirements for Electrical Installations (IET Wiring regulations) 18th edition will reference 4 potential types of protective device: In this particular article, we will look at the selection of MCBs and RCBOs and points to consider in this process. The decision to use Type B, C or D MCBs or RCBOs for final circuit protection in residential, commercial or industrial buildings can be based on a few simple rules. However, an understanding of the differences between these types of device can help the specifier or installer overcome problems of unwanted tripping, disconnections times for earth fault protection or issues associated with discrimination with upstream protective devices. The primary purpose of circuit protection devices such as MCBs is to protect the cable downstream of t...

The Best Electric Blankets For Extra Coziness This Winter

Winter is creeping up on us like a snake in the proverbial grass. Before we know it, it’ll be weeks of overcast mornings, slushy conditions outside, and we’ll be wishing we were a hibernating sort of species in no time. Sadly, checking out and curling up in a cosy cave for 6 months isn’t an option, so we need to make due with what we’ve got. One of the best ways to survive winter is to invest in all of the things that keep you cozy. While a blanket is certainly snuggle approved for winter, you can take it to the next level by getting an electric blanket. Not only will your couch curling up sessions be blissfully comfortable, they’ll be toasty warm too. And once you invest in an electric blanket, you’ll never go back to a regular one again. This Sunbeam Electric Heated Fleece Throw Blanket will definitely keep you nice and toasty. Mae with fleece, this heated blanket features 3 heat settings with an easy-to-use controller. It delivers consistent heat that you can adjust at any time. It uses thin, flexible wires for better heat distribution while remaining virtually undetectable (and therefore, more comfortable). The best part though is that is has a convenient 3-hour auto-shutoff...
