A professional group of product engineers that you can rely on

Nov 25 2014

Hello everyone. It’s been a little while since my last post, so I thought I’d provide with some more excellent content on this fine November afternoon. I was thinking about what to include in this post and I really wanted to mention this business group that I came across in recent weeks. They are quite remarkable, as they informed me of a number of jobs and projects they have worked on, and a few of them really surprised me, considering the task that was at hand and their ability to finish the job.

They have worked with a large number of different companies and have catered to many different needs. Much of their work has culminated in the creation of a device or product that has essentially met all their clients needs. Anyway, I thought it might be interesting to talk you through some of the things they’ve worked one, and to gauge your reaction, because I’ll tell you now a lot of their work impressed me a great deal.

One project they worked on basically involved a hospital/medical building that needed a system in place whereby its senior members of staff were able to keep track of whether the other staff members were

a) Washing their hands regularly enough, in order to keep properly sanitised.

And b) washing their hands in the correct way/manner as to ensure they were again, properly clean and sanitised.

If someone came up to me with this problem, I don’t think I’d know where to start. Do you think you would? It’s a bit of a tricky one isn’t it. I literally had no idea how this problem could be solved, but the group explained their solution.

A custom device was built to ensure both a) and b) above. It was a new soap dispenser that, along with personal wrist bands that all of the members of staff wore, was able to keep track of exactly who was washing their hands, and how effectively they were doing it. Quite ingenious isn’t it, if you think about it. The device fulfilled the tasks of the job, and the overall project was a success. Loxley has consulting services that are shared, and the team have also worked with many other companies, engineering many other products and devices, but I won’t go into more today. You’ll have to come back again later to read more about this.

Thanks

To all of those that are interested

Nov 13 2014

Ive been taking a bit of our time working on this next post. I know, I know, I’m sorry. There is really no one to blame but myself, but I have been a bit overwhelmed with my work at the moment, so this blog has been at the back of my mind a bit.

Anyway, I just wanted to tell that I’m back and I’m working on something new. Nothing huge, but a nice little piece that should interest you as much as it did me.

An ingenious new padlock is about to be announced

Oct 14 2014

All of us occasionally have to lock things up whether its your bicycle, a cupboard, or even a shed, it’s important to keep your belongings safe. Padlocks tend to be the go to product when it comes to securing belongings, but it’s important to remember that some undoubtedly do a better job than ever.

Those of you that have many items that need protection will be happy to hear that a new padlock is in development that will change the way we keep an eye over our belongings.

For years, sturdy padlocks have been doing a reasonable job, but that isn’t to say that they are impenetrable. What if someone were to go to the length of using a saw or a lock pick in an attempt to open your lock? You’d probably agree that the chances of your belongings being safe and secure are no longer entirely certain.

All is not lost however. Recently a team have developed a lock that is designed to let you know and inform you of any tampering. In other words, the lock has the ability to detect whether some attempts to break it or open it besides unlocking it with a key. It can be described as a wireless secure gsm alarm padlock The genius thing about it is that it also has the technology to inform you of when this is happening and let you know via a mobile phone text message.

The advantage of this is that you can quickly or rather instantly know whether someone is trying to break into whatever it is you have secured. This then gives you the time to act or alert whoever is closest to the lock in order to attempt to prevent the robbery. It’s quite incredible, don’t you think?

Remarkably the lock is battery powered, and has the ability to reach you via text message, wherever you are as long as you have network signal.

Unfortunately for all of us that are incredibly interested in this product, it is still in pre-production. Luckily, it is forecasted to be available over the next few months and at the beginning of next year. If you are interested, please come back in the future for more info. Thank you.
