Do You Support Solar Energy?

Do You Support Solar Energy?

Installing Solar PanelsOne would find it rather weird or fail to understand why we, Mainland Lifters, support solar energy and the solar racking solutions from Roller Die. Roller Die is a company that makes the installation of solar modules. When we approached them with our design requirements, at first, we never believed that we could acquire them considering the fact that our funds were not matching what we were demanding.

They asked us to give them a few days to find a way forward. Their technical services team met and brainstormed and later invited us to contribute. They convinced us on minor changes or alterations that we could make to our requirement specification without changing the overall design of the module type and functionality.

Solar Power GraphWith prior knowledge of the difficulties of aluminum, we asked them to use it as the racking material. Aluminum has a low die cost, lightweight and corrosive resistance. Roller Die was tremendously growing, and other customers had occasional issues of cost per watt to approach traditional fossil fuel costs. This pushed them to be using steel as the racking material. Eventually, they were able to complete for us the solar installation. It became something worth celebrating. For our facility, now we had a stable power supply, and we stopped facing the blackouts and brownouts that had been a tonal and clonal problem since we established. The racking solutions were made in such a way that they appeared as roves. We, therefore, did not have to incur any cost in buying roofing tiles as we had planned earlier.

Mainland Lifters has been able to generate many funds from this installation. Those who neighbor us can tap our energy and use it in their households. In return, they give us funds that we use to run more activities.

Solar Racking SolutionsOur company, now that we offer training for weightlifters and provide high-quality gym services, we get to generate a lot of income. When accumulated, we invest these funds in different businesses to ensure we grow day by day. We had several business talks with Roller Die, and they allowed us to invest in their company. When we first visited them, they only used to perform solar racking solutions. Currently, they carry out the following: roll forming, stamping, press brake, powder coating, welding and bending, extrusion, fabrication, assembly and finishing of buildings. Our shares are 5 percent. However small the percentage may look, it is so worthwhile to us. Roller Die is a big and well-known company and owning that percentage means a lot.

Our partnership with the solar racking company has even surpassed the business perspective. We always create social and recreational activities like tournaments. We sponsor these.

Roll FormingOne of our own, who sits in the Company Development Committee, has made some suggestions that have made the company rise and rise to greatest heights. It was his suggestion to expand the Frankfort, KY Facility. This has helped a great deal to support the increase in demand for current and new customers. Roll forming capabilities have also expanded to six roll lines; there are additional stamping capabilities and expansion of the market. In Frankfort, the markets to be served are Solar, Commercial Construction, and Material Handling. Our agent suggests that there should be increased the workforce at the new facility as they continue to expand even to the eastern and northeastern United States.

Regarding solar racking solutions, Roller Die is now able to boast over the following:

  1. A library of standard tooling some 3,000 profiles strong
  2. A full in house tool room with seven full-time engineers

In one of their magazines, they proudly say that they are beyond competition with other companies. Writing by their human resource manager reads, “We can design and build pre-punch die as complex as our customer imagination. The 3,000 standard library gives our clients the advantage of lost cost tooling, no significant capital expenditure for new products or on existing profiles In addition to those items, having our in-house tool room allows for us to meet or exceed our customer’s deadlines on new tooling orders. At Roller Die and Forming, we have the one of the shortest lead times in the industry. Our tool room team members are a high-level craftsman, with half of the team with over 35 years of experience.”

It is not only Roller Die that gains from us, but we also gain from them, and we will continue supporting each other. The bond must remain strong.

Knuckle Boom Cranes, The Ultimate Machine

Knuckle Boom Cranes, The Ultimate Machine

knuckle boom cranesA knuckle boom crane is a type of crane that is typically used in construction. It is named such because it has a joint in its boom that resembles the knuckle on a human finger. The joint in a knuckle boom crane’s boom allows it to lift loads that would typically be too heavy for cranes of that size to lift, so it really improves the usability of this type of machine.

The Knuckleboom crane is a hydraulic crane mostly used on ships and on other moving installations. Use of a knuckle boom crane has been seen in a variety of cases like in maintenance of an atrium and launching a life boat. A knuckle boom crane can also be mounted on a barge and used to transport goods. It is, however, an efficient and versatile piece of equipment that, with the correct attachment can be used for everything from road construction through to lifting, carrying and moving jobs. The knuckleboom crane, which is capable and often does perform the role of the drywall boom crane, has the following operation choices: stand up control, ground control, top-seat control, or wireless radio remote.

Transporting GoodsThese types of cranes are typically used by construction crews and other utility workers, configured as service truck cranes, because they are very mobile and versatile. They can be taken anywhere that a typical pick-up truck can be taken, which is beneficial where larger, heavy duty cranes cannot travel. Heavier cranes cannot drive on most roads and freeways because they exceed weight limits, so the ability to have a knuckle boom crane mounted onto a pick-up truck sized vehicle like a service truck really makes these tools valuable.

As the name suggests, a knuckleboom crane, is a crane with a knuckle in its blast. The knuckleboom from Petersen Industries is a contained crane that essentially resembles a finger, with the verbalization being the knuckle. A water driven chamber makes it conceivable to broaden the crane so it would seem that a normal blast crane, yet its advantage comes when the knuckle blast is collapsed. In the collapsed position it is much closer to the truck or vessel’s deck, and in this manner the separation between the crane tip and the heap being worked with is far less. The shorter separation fits expanded control and the configuration of the knuckleboom takes into account less movement of the heap being conveyed. Some knuckle blast cranes drop the wire by and large, depending on the expanded mobility to get questions and drop them in an exact area.

The knuckle blast crane, additionally alluded to as a loader or an articulating crane, is a using pressurized water fueled enunciated arm fitted to a trailer or truck (along these lines turning into a knuckle blast truck). The crane, when connected to the truck is utilized for stacking/emptying the vehicle. Once the cranes occupation is finished, it can be collapsed and put away perfectly and advantageously because of its various jointed areas (one or a greater amount of which might be telescopic). Frequently the crane will have a level of robotization and have the capacity to empty or stow itself without an administrator’s guideline. The flexibility of the crane can be found in the way that it can work like a normal straight blast, after which it can overlay up asper specific requirements.

Grapple HookCrane boom repair regulations need to be adhered to with the utmost of care. As the cranes are almost entirely computerized, a botched repair job could cost more money than the cheap mechanics were worth. Also, the machines are big and heavy so if somebody gets injured while using them due to faulty repairs that haven’t followed regulation, then the owner of the machine is liable to pay a lot in damages.

Top Mount Knuckle Boom LoaderThese types of cranes are typically used by construction crews and other utility workers, configured as service truck cranes, because they are very mobile and versatile. They can be taken anywhere that a typical pick-up truck can be taken, which is beneficial where larger, heavy duty cranes cannot travel.

Charles’ Broken Garage Needs Some Lift Power

Charles’ Broken Garage Needs Some Lift Power

Garage Door RepairHello ladies and gentlemen! Carlito the Menace here. Everyone knows the city of Miami. Not only is it a great place to visit and let loose, but the people that live there, love living there. My friend Charles is one of those people; he has a nice little house down in Miami, and he asked me to stay over for the weekend. Let’s just say that he did not need to ask me twice. The first night over at Charle’s place I heard a loud bang come from the garage. My first thought was that it might be an intruder, but when I went to go check, the only thing I noticed was that the garage door spring was broken, I figured that’s what the issue was. The next morning I showed the broken spring to Charles, and we knew we had to call a good garage door company to fix the broken spring. After asking around for a good garage door company, we got the same response from everyone, 911 Garage Door Services in Miami is the company for us.

When we called 911 Garage Door Services, they picked up the phone right away and asked us to explain what the problem is. We told them exactly what happened, and they ensured us that it happens all the time. Basically, the garage door springs get worn over time, and they just break after a while. They told us that they have a technician close to us and that he will give us a call soon to let us know when he will get to us. Ten minutes later the technician called and told us that he will be at the house in 30 minutes. 30 minutes later, he knocked on the door.

Miami FLWe let the technician in, and he went right to the garage door to start inspecting the problem. He told us what the phone operator told us and he let us know how much it would cost to fix the problem. The price that he gave us was very reasonable, and we told him that he can start working. I noticed as the technician was working he knew exactly what he was doing like he had been doing this for years. In about twenty minutes, the technician finished the job, he tested the door to make sure that it was working correctly, and he was on his way. 911 Garage Door Services was much better than we expected from start to finish.

911 Garage Door Services do not just fix garage door springs, but they deal with all garage door repair needs. If you need your entire door replaced, they can do that for you no problem.

These Guys Can Really Lift

These Guys Can Really Lift

Hello to all the lifters out there, the Mainland Lifters are here. Many of you might think that because we are able to lift a lot of weight in the gym, that means that when it comes to moving sofas, TVs, and other household furniture, it should be a cinch for us. That is not the case. We found out the hard way when we were helping our friend Chris move to his new place in Houston. Chris asked us to help him move last month, and we told him that we would help. When it came time for us to lift some of these bulky items, we figured that they can only be lifted using a certain technique, and we were afraid to injure ourselves. We told Chris that it was in everybody’s best interest to just hire some local movers in Houston, TX to do the job. After asking around, Chris found the perfect company to help us with the move, with a company name like Hercules Movers & Packers, how can you go wrong?

When we called Hercules Movers & Packers, we were immediately greeted by the phone operator. She was very straightforward with their different pricing options, which we thought was a pleasant surprise. Besides that, we thought that the prices were extremely affordable compared to the other companies that we checked out. They told us when the earliest they can come is, and at that precise date and time, they came to Chris’ place and started the moving process.

Houston TX MoversWhen the movers began to work, we noticed that they were doing their jobs very diligently. We have all seen movers work before, but the way they were working, it was just a sight to behold. When they began to carry all of the heavy furniture out, we were surprised how easy they were able to do it. Well, these guys were not small per se, but it was just incredible how they were able to do something so effortlessly while the four of us “big guys” had such a problem in doing.

We definitely learned that in the case of moving, size does not matter. If you get true professionals to do the job for you, no obstacle is too big for them.

At Mainland Lifters, we understand the necessity of companies that provide a good service, and Hercules Movers & Packers is an excellent company to us when it comes to moving and packing. They have the knowledge and expertise to get all of your belonging safely from location to location. We recommend Hercules Movers & Packers to all people looking to move in the Houston area.

The Mainland Lifters!

Welcome to Mainland Lifters! This website is hosted by Thomas (AKA Tom the monster), Carlos (AKA Carlito the menace), and Daniel (AKA Danny the lifting machine), to bring you information that you will need to become like us; a big, shredded, lifting powerhouse. The most important thing that you can do to get you those muscular gains is by going to the gym and lifting hard and heavy. Going to the gym is not the only thing that will bring you results, diet is a critical factor in gaining size, definition, and both anaerobic and aerobic endurance.

If you are a beginner starting to go to the gym, it is important that you start going with someone that has experience in the gym and knows proper techniques on how to lift. If these techniques are not known, you can end up seriously hurting yourself both in the short and long term. For example, when you are squatting, it is important to keep your back straight, head up, feet shoulder width apart, and not lock out your knees. Forgetting to do one or more of these things can lead to serious injury which can also delay you from getting back in the gym.

Knowing what to eat is as important as knowing how to lift. Depending on the results you are trying to achieve, different diets should be followed. If you are trying to bulk up as much as you can, you should follow a diet with a high caloric intake focusing on your macros (protein, carbs, fats). If you are trying to get lean and lose some fat, you are probably going to want to reduce your caloric intake, increase your protein consumption, and decrease your carbs and fats intake.

The Lifting community is vast, and there is so much available information out there. Visit our website regularly for a lot of great information so you can learn how to achieve all of your physical goals. Mainland Lifters is here for you!
