National Energy Awareness Month

Posted: Oct 25, 2016 | Categories: Aerospace, Automotive, Composite Manufacturing, Composites, Energy, Engineering, Industrial Ovens, Manufacturing, Powder Coating
Energy is the driving force of most modern day conveniences and technology. As technological advances continue so does our need for energy. In 2011, each U.S. citizen used 313 million British Thermal Units (Btu) of energy and since then, this number has continued to increase. Energy sources such as fossil fuels have a limited supply. As human use of energy continues to increase it is critical that more and more energy saving initiatives are taken. As we look towards future generations, it is especially important to reduce the use of our natural resources now. As we continue to educate society

American Made Matters® & How Wisconsin Oven Supports This Trend

Posted: Nov 15, 2016 | Categories: Aerospace
American Manufacturing leads to an increase in investments and goods which boost the American economy. Manufacturing is an indicator of a nation’s power and prosperity. Not only does a country need to produce more items, but it also needs to manufacture the machines that facilitate the production. Up until the 1950s, the US led the world in terms of production technology. It controlled over 50% of the manufacturing domain on a global scale. But fast forward to 2016 and the scenario has changed drastically. Right now America is no longer the hub of production and manufacturing genius. It is, in

Inspiring the Future Generation of Manufacturing

The beginning of US manufacturing dates back to 1785 when the first automated flour mill was created. As the years progressed, so did the machinery. By the 1850s, American manufacturing was using interchangeable parts and mechanization which led to the first manufactured automobile coming off the assembly line in 1908. The automobile industry of the early 1900’s initiated the growth of manufacturing for several decades to come. Fast forward to today and the manufacturing industry hasn’t slowed down yet. There are countless industries that rely on manufacturing. The industry is a solid career choice for people of all skill and

It’s that time of year again when the National Safety Council reminds us of how important it is for all of us to pay attention to safety. As they say, “safety isn’t an accident” and we must all make safe and conscious choices when we are at work, at home, or on the road. At Wisconsin Oven, safety is a part of our culture as we stated in last year’s National Safety Month blog . This year we are targeting one area specifically: fire safety. Industrial ovens are large pieces of equipment that can be dangerous, as they do put

Aluminum in the World Around Us

Posted: Jul 20, 2016 | Categories: Aerospace, Automotive, Composite Manufacturing, Energy, Engineering, Industrial Ovens, Manufacturing
Aluminum and Other Industries Aluminum plays a huge part in our everyday life, and its uses are growing. Three of the largest industries that utilize aluminum in their products are: • Aerospace: Aluminum is the key component in the aerospace market – in fact, aluminum makes up 75-80% of the modern aircraft. It has been an essential component since its beginning, as the original Wright brothers’ engine used aluminum parts in the engine to reduce weight. Today, everything from aircrafts to guided missiles to propulsion units use aluminum as their key component. It is often a chosen material for structural

The Importance of Powder Coating Today

Posted: Aug 23, 2016 | Categories: Aerospace, Automotive, Composite Manufacturing, Engineering, Industrial Ovens, Manufacturing, Powder Coating
What is Powder Coating? How Does it Work? In today’s world, powder coating finishes are everywhere. We all know that it is durable, protects against corrosion and looks great, but what is it really? Powder coating is a dry finishing process that represents over 15% of the total industrial finishing market and is used on a wide array of products. It has continued to gain popularity since it was introduced in North America over 40 years ago. Powder coatings are divided into two types: thermoset and thermoplastic coatings. Thermoset powder reacts when it is baked with other chemical groups in
