A hit song from the legendary Oakland funk band Tower of Power warned us that “there’s only so much oil in the ground.” Just like petroleum, there’s only so much metal in the ground, and when it’s gone, it’s gone. That means we all have to do what we can to recycle existing metals and keep what we can in the ground. This is not a wholly selfless endeavor. Here are some of the benefits of recycling steel and other scrap metals.
Demolition work can take you to some interesting sites. You could find yourself taking down a tall building in the middle of nowhere; on the other hand, you could wind up very delicately demolishing a structure while leaving its close neighbors untouched. Either way, demolition calls for the removal of scrap metals for recycling, and you’ll want to turn to an electromagnet for lifting this metal up and out of the way for further sorting. But not every electromagnet is suited for every job. Fortunately, when the conditions preclude a traditional electromagnet, you can turn to a battery-powered model to do the job. Here are some of the advantages of using a battery-powered scrap handling magnet on your next tough site.
After the COVID-19 pandemic put many construction projects on hold throughout much of 2020, the beginning of a post-vaccine world heralds a belated but welcome return to the vigorous construction schedules that shape our ever-changing surroundings. As we get back into full swing, it can be easy to pick up where we left off and take a cavalier approach to jobsite safety. Just as so much of our life requires a “new normal” approach, so too does vigilance on the construction site. Here’s how we can use the return to begin rethinking how we keep our construction workers safe in 2021 and in the years to come.
Over the years we’ve seen an increasing number of businesses rely on electric motors for a wide array of uses. There’s no question that manufacturing, construction, and recycling are all dependent on automation nowadays, and electric motors often drive that automation. Of course, you should have a regular maintenance schedule for all your equipment, but especially for motors. Although, even if you stay on schedule with electric motor maintenance, there are times you’ll need professional service. That said, you shouldn’t merely trust anyone with your motor. If the repair technician doesn’t know what they’re doing, it could result in permanent motor damage. If you’re searching for the characteristics of a great electric motor repair service, we’ve got you covered in our guide below. Read on to learn more.(more…)
Motivated By Moley: I Feel Like An Oscar Winner
It is the end of my second week at Moley Magnetics, Inc. As I sit down to write this article (quickly) I feel that I must first start off like an Oscar winner, thanking those that have put me in this position; Ron Slaby, John Moley, and Nick Moley for inviting me into their hard working, talented family. It is an honor and a privilege to be entrusted with such a strong brand in company and in people. To my father, Dennis Kuligowski, who took the time and careful consideration to introduced us all–which is that networking thing we all hear so much about—but very few practice. (more…)
