The Mechanical Engineering supplies a highly diverse range of products. Most of these product segments include power-operated hand tools and machine tools used in primary stages of construction and manufacturing.
Drills and cutting machine tools
Metal working machine tool (MWMT) products are used in industries that perform cold working (cutting, bending and shaping) of metals. Examples include cutters (mechanical, plasma, oxy-fuel, water jet and laser), milling machines, grinders, presses and roll-formers. Chainsaws are also included in this product segment. The major users of MWMT products are the automotive, white goods, electrical and metal fabrication sectors. This product segment is expected to remain relatively steady as a portion of revenue over the five years through 2013-14 due to its exposure to numerous industries in Mechanical Engineering Assignment.
Wood and Metal Working Machinery
These products are used intensively in the construction and mining sectors, which grew significantly in recent years. This product segment is expected to increase as portion of revenue over the five years through 2013-14. This is due to in part to the decline of other product segments and the growth in the construction industry in Mechanical Engineering Homework.
Gas welding and cutting equipment
The range of products includes regulators, blowpipes, and tongue attachments, cutting nozzles and welding tips. Equipment suppliers also provide consumables. This product is expected to increase as a portion of industry revenue over the five years through 2013-14 due to its exposure to the mining sector.
Metal Dies, Dies Sets and Molds
These products are used to cast metal and plastic shapes, and tend to be manufactured by small operators using batch production processes. The industry is made up of a large number of small players, which are contracted by metal and plastic casting operators to produce specialised dies. The major casters include motor vehicle (and part) manufacturers, as well as casters supplying metal fabricating industries. Moulds for plastic products are primarily used by injection moulding manufacturers. This product segment is expected to fall as a portion of revenue over the five years through 2013-14 due to the decline of the automotive manufacturing.
