Searl Technology Limited operations are concept studies construct and test products before mass production.Secondary functions planning mass production systems.
All companies regardless whose business is mass production requires certain staff: Technical drafting, engineers; machine operators, setters, inspectors, forklift drivers, possible heat treatment operators and supervisor’s not forgetting the dear manager.
What is an engineer? The work of an engineer is aimed at enabling natural laws and resources to be exploited for the use of society with maximum economy consistent with other important factors.
These may include such considerations as safety and reliability and also social factors like aesthetics, noise and atmospheric pollution.
Although he / she may have no special responsibility to determine the uses to which his developments are put, our everyday life and the prosperity of our society both depend vitally on his work.
Within the last 200 years, engineers have produced a host of machines, techniques and concepts: will be the bases of Searl Technology Limited; that has been the present technological civilization.
Some of these engineers have been originators like the Wright brothers, who developed the first powered airplane.
However, most of them have been men like James Watt or Henry Ford, who possessed the vision and skill to refine an existing invention to the point where it became practical.
That is what the Searl Technology Limited is all about, to refine the existing energy system to the point where it becomes practical.
Just to remind you with brief sketches the major contributions made to the world by 28 great engineers – from the Industrial Revolution to World War II.
JAMES BRINDLEY – English, 1716 – 1772: Brindley, a self-educated engineer designed a network of shipping canals, which served as England’s major industrial transportation system until the advent of railways in the early 19th century.
JOHN SMEATON – English,
1724 – 1792:
Smeaton is recognized for his pioneer work in the field of civil engineering. He planned harbours, dams, canals, drainage works and bridges, and won fame for building a lighthouse, which for 120 years survived the storms that sweep England’s Eddystone Rock.
SIR RICHARD ARKWRIGHT – English, 1732-1792:
Arkwright developed a water powered spinning machine, which revolutionized the cotton industry.
So great was its influence in bringing workers out of their homes and into factories, that Arkwright is credited with fathering the modern factory system.
JAMES WATT – Scottish, 1736 – 1819.
Although Watt is commonly believed to have invented the steam engine, his principal contribution was developing a condenser, which made existing engines more efficient.
Later, together with a manufacturer, Matthew Boulton, Watt opened a factory where he continued to build and improve steam engines.
THOMAS TELFORD – Scottish, 1757 – 1834:
An extraordinarily versatile civil engineer, Telford is renowned for his bridges and for the highways with which he laced Scotland, England and Wales.
