Components supplied for generator design project

Components supplied for generator design project
The mass of commonly used components such as fasteners, fittings, and gaskets are often required when manufacturing large complex products like an industrial generator. To keep production costs low, engineering teams are challenged to not only minimise the total number of parts needed but also maximise the reuse of existing components from their extensive part libraries to keep the number of new components low. Part substitution, consolidation, and elimination are the keys to achieve these goals.

Demonstrating the importance of acoustic design

Demonstrating the importance of acoustic design
It is essential for engineers and architects to demonstrate how a project will look to a client before building gets underway. As well as being an intrinsic part of the design process, technology makes it possible to produce photo-realistic images and to-scale models so that the professionals can articulate their visions and the reasons behind them. Showing a client how a space might sound is less common, and often deprioritised in the process. However, the sound of a space has a visceral impact on its users.
