How Do Different Industries Make Use of OEM Equipment?

OEM Equipment in Different Industries

OEM equipment is a common part of many industrial setups. RTS Corporation can provide the best quality OEM equipment for gas, oil, and power generation facilities. But what other industries make use of OEM parts and components? In today’s blog, RTS Corporation looks at some of the most common industrial applications of OEM equipment, from small parts of a large operation to entire pieces of machinery.

Consumer and Commercial Electronics

How many consumer electronic items do you encounter day-to-day? Now more than ever, we are surrounded by consumer electronics. Even those on a tight personal budget are still able to afford a feature-packed smartphone or laptop and most of us have a large high-definition TV in our home.

All of these items use OEM components such as multi-conductor paired cables, coaxial cables, hook-up wires, tubing, sleeving, and many others. The use of OEM equipment is part of what has made so many consumer electronics affordable for so many people.

Computers, Gadgets, and Technology

Many of these consumer electronics come in the form of gadgets like smartphones and games consoles, as well as larger home appliances like washers and dryers. Development and innovation in OEM components have helped to make much smaller parts for things like smartphones, and even smaller parts for things like the SD card you might use to increase the capacity of that smartphone.

Aviation, Aerospace, and Military

OEM equipment is an essential part of the aviation industry and, subsequently, aerospace and military manufacturing. From airplanes to space shuttles, and from fighter jets to tanks, a wide range of OEM parts are used in these industries. This includes components like connectors and terminals, fiber optic and data cables, magnetic wires and many others, providing critical functionality for operations in these industries.

Vehicles and Transportation Equipment

Not only do airplanes use a variety of OEM parts, but your car, truck, or SUV does too. Whatever vehicle you use day-to-day will include OEM components that are vital to the way it functions, such as high-temperature hookup wires and specifically designed automotive wiring harnesses.

Medical and Healthcare Equipment

There is a good reason why high-quality medical equipment is absolutely necessary when it comes to curing disease and saving lives, and OEM equipment provides a vital resource in this industry. High-temperature hook-up wires, portable cords and cables, components that aid in automation, even ways to simply manage cables are all OEM components that are in constant use. These are just a few in a list of many, many more.

What Goes Into Field Service Engineering? We Can Explain

What is Involved in Field Service Engineering?

Whether you require solutions in oil and gas, or power generation, we can offer high-quality components, engineering consultancy services, and field service engineering.

If you have yet to look into hiring outside consultants for your projects, you may be unfamiliar with field service engineering and what a field service engineer can offer. In this blog, RTS Corporation is looking at some of the details in field service engineering.

Strong and Varied Knowledge of Your Industry

Providing field service engineering means having a strong foundation of knowledge about many industry-specific engineering requirements as well as general standards and practices that apply across all industries. A skilled field service engineer must have a practical knowledge of the many different types of machinery and equipment they will encounter in their work.

A field service engineer is the person who is sent to repair equipment when it is damaged, defective, or no longer operational. This means they need to be able to know going in what they will need to do to assess and fix the issue in order to get operations back on track.

Competency and Skill

Field service engineers take this knowledge and combine it with the skills and experience necessary to put it to use in unique and demanding operational settings. Field service engineering is a hands-on career, and the engineer needs to be able to roll up their sleeves and get to work on a wide variety of equipment in an equally wide variety of scenarios. Exceptional practical skills and abilities, as well as a deep knowledge of industry-specific engineering, means getting the job done in a timely and reliable way.

Willingness to Travel and Adapt

Field service engineers are often required to travel extensively. This means that engineers need to be prepared for long and frequent trips for work and to act as an exemplary representative of their company when they are on the job. Depending on the kind of work, trips can be longer or shorter, and the locations can pose very different demands.

Engineers can quickly go from working in isolation, with the peace and quiet to focus on the job, to a busy environment where their ability to concentrate is tested to its limit. The key to field service engineering is the combination of knowledge with the ability and willingness to think fast and adapt to different working environments.

If you are looking for an engineering consultant for help with a project at any stage in the process, RTS Corporation can help. But what can an engineering consultant bring to your project or processes? In this blog, RTS Corporation will look at some of the details of what a consultant does, and the benefits they can offer.

Cost-Effective Efficiency

The biggest and most effective benefit of using an engineering consultant is the improvement of overall efficiency. A good consultant is equipped with the skills and experience to greatly cut down on the time a project or process takes and identify places where cost can be reduced, without impacting overall operations.

Availability of Vital Knowledge

A skilled consultant is also equipped with a wide array of knowledge. Engineering consultants are experienced with the extensive variety of engineering requirements across many industries. Not only can the skills of RTS engineers be utilized in gas, oil, and electric industries, but consultants will also frequently work on infrastructure and environmental projects in many sectors.

Depending on their area of expertise, a consultant can potentially be the missing piece in your project when it comes to in-depth knowledge. This knowledge will then be readily available to be utilized by your organization through targeted analysis of your processes and operations with the consultant.

Saving Costs on Your Operations and Planning

It can be difficult to keep a close eye on your budget when you are managing a facility or a major project. Keeping operations in check can be overwhelming, and if you are not equipped with an easy way to budget and count costs, you can end up overspending. A consultant can offer the added benefit of being able to arrange and organize services with cost always in mind.

Keeping Up with Key Economic and Industry Development

A key part of being a good engineering consultant is keeping up with industry changes. Being a consultant is about more than just using existing knowledge, it is also about adapting to change and implementing new strategies for those who employ your services. A consultant can bring you a fresh, modern perspective in place of outdated methodologies.

RTS Corporation on Safety in the Electrical Power Industry

RTS Corporation: Safety and the Electrical Power Industry

RTS Corporation provides engineering services and OEM equipment for the oil, gas, and power generation industries. With all of the experience that we have gained in working with a variety of clients in these industries, we have developed a deep understanding of how important safety is across many workplaces and industries.

Not just safety in equipment, but in processes, policy development, staff training, facility design and functionality, and much more. In this blog, RTS Corporation takes a closer look at some specifics for safety considerations in the electrical power generation industry.

OSHA and Related Regulations on Safety

Whatever industry you operate in, following OSHA regulations is essential if you are based in the United States. OSHA, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, is part of the US Department of Labor and determines a variety of guidelines across all industries for the health and safety of American workers.

When it comes to industrial or manufacturing work, OSHA has a long list of highly specific standards and regulations. This includes anything from the condition and use of fixed ladders, to the storage and handling of volatile substances, to the operation of helicopters. You can find all of their industrial guidelines on their official website.

Workplace Hazards

For more general safety guidelines, RTS Corporation recommends you pay close attention to the environment your staff is working in. This is as true for an established facility as it is for one that is being planned. Neglecting safety, either through cutting corners or not being aware of hazards, is extremely dangerous.

For the electrical power industry, this includes factors such as the proper condition of cables and connections, along with the proper facility design considerations to ensure that cables and connections are fitted and secured safely. Keeping a facility clean and free of moisture and damp is vital too, as these can increase the risk of fire and electrocution. In order to avoid accidents, any tools related to maintenance must be kept away from the facility floor and industrial equipment must be secured properly when not in use.

Safety Gear and Staff Training

When it comes to accidents, providing the right safety gear for all staff — from the technicians on-site every day to administration officials touring the facility — is essential. Non-conductive equipment must be available, including helmets, gloves, footwear, eye protection, and insulated tools such as non-conductive rope.

Quality Equipment and Good Practices

The team at RTS Corporation would also like to stress the importance of quality in your equipment as it pertains to the safety of your facility. This does not just mean the quality of the machinery, but also of any all of the equipment and safety gear that your technicians and engineers will use. It also means their training. Proper safety training and adhering to industry-standard best practices is absolutely vital to the safety of your staff, the functioning of your facility, and the integrity of your operation.
