Every year there are hundreds, if not thousands, of new engineers entering the workforce and getting their hands dirty, many of which are highly skilled individuals looking to perfect their craft. However, it’s not just about individualism, and sometimes it can be dangerous.
When dealing with sensitive equipment, doing on-the-job research is terrifying for two main reasons. The first is that the applications these engineers are dealing with are often highly sensitive. A simple mistake could cause millions of dollars in damage, cause an environmental disaster, or injure other people. Yes, it may seem extreme, but it’s best to proceed with caution.
The second issue with tackling the task at hand alone, is that while on site, there are already plenty of qualified individuals who understand the equipment that they work with on a daily basis. Not collaborating with these experts could leave the experts confused about the work the engineers are doing, and the engineers doing work they don’t fully understand.
At Gallagher Fluid Seals, Inc., their team of engineers work closely with their customers team to be able to ensure the quality and safety of the infrastructure that they are working on, rather than take on the task alone when there are employees who are more familiar with the equipment and how it all works together in the same area that they are.
You can see Gallagher’s expertise in engineering for yourself with their resources page which details many topics such as fluid power, expansion joint design, case studies, and more. All of which outline their expertise in engineering and dedication to their craft.
Along with engineering, Gallagher works with some of the top seal manufacturers in the world which allows their team to be unbiased when consulting on purchases and not recommend products due to a profit motive.
