Not all cable jackets are created equal. In fact, there are multiple materials for industrial cables, and they all offer different benefits depending on your environment. So, why does cable jacketing matter? Without a jacket, cables would be defenseless against chemicals, abrasion, extreme temperatures and more. Let’s break it down.

Welding is a fabrication process that joins materials, usually metals, by using high heat to melt the parts together and then allowing them to cool, causing fusion. Welding is popular in several industries including shipbuilding, automotive, aerospace, and building and construction. Each industry has different demands when it comes to welding so understanding the project needs and proper welding techniques will better prepare you for a successful weld.

Any damage to your cable’s jacketing material as it moves across a rough surface is considered abrasion. Common causes of failure due to abrasive applications are having too thin of a jacket or too soft of a jacket that fails to protect your cable’s conductors or your cable’s shielding during operation.

Choosing the proper abrasion resistant cable will keep your machines up and running efficiently, reduce downtime and allow you to use cable for a longer period of time.

Most of us have a startling amount of tangled cables and connectors on, below, and behind our desks. Multiply that by a hundred or even a thousand, and you have a better idea of the cables and wiring that need to be managed for machinery in an entire manufacturing facility.

Wire and cable can be found all over a manufacturing facility. They are the life source of all power equipment and are required to fit in tight spaces, reach long distances, and still manage to not get in the way of day to day operations on the floor. The answer to all this cable chaos? Cable trays.

Cranes are essential to the steel-making process. They’re used for quick, safe loading and unloading of materials and they keep vehicles moving throughout the facility. Cranes also handle scrap or raw materials, liquid metal, and melting buckets. Constantly running, cranes are fully integrated into a steel mill’s processes. Here are the cranes used in the steel industry and the industrial power cables they require.

In order to maintain a safe shipyard, it should be guaranteed that workers keep their workplace clean and free of unnecessary tools and materials. While this goes for any working environment, it’s especially important for shipyards. The dangers of electrocution posed by electrical systems on ships and at shipyard shore facilities is significantly high and a cluttered workspace can lead to dangers posed by unseen damage to electrical cables. Both shipyard employers and employees must be fully aware of the variety of workplace hazards and dangers.

What is a Total Cost of Ownership?

A total cost of ownership (TCO) is the purchase price of a product plus the cost of operations. When calculating the total cost of ownership, it exemplifies the overall value of a product over time giving you a better idea of how much something is worth.

When gathering data to make a purchasing decision, buyers should not only consider the initial price of a product, but they should also consider the long-term price of a product which would be the TCO. The item with the lower total cost of ownership is the better value overall.
