Electronics. How is it that our ancestors managed to survive without them? For some of our contemporaries, a day without the television verges on tragedy. For others of us, too many hours away from the computer sets us to twitching, with a growing panic that a critical email might be sitting in our inbox.
Aside from borderline addictions like those just mentioned, much of our lives cycles around and, in some cases, depends upon electronics. At the most extreme end are those in the hospitals who have electronic equipment breathing for them, circulating their blood, feeding them, eliminating waste from their bodies. At the other end are those who look to electronics for entertainment. Running the gamut between are all the electronics that perform so many daily living chores, from washing and drying clothes and dishes, to chilling and cooking food, to letting us see and hear loved ones in remote locations.
For those of us who have grown up with such veritable luxuries, it can be all too easy to take electricity and all it enlivens for granted. Easy…until a storm like Ike comes along and shuts down a city like Houston. Suddenly, we realize just how much we look to electricity for the necessities of life, like food and water.
When the electronics stop working, we start to consider just what we’ve lost. All these gadgets and gizmos didn’t just happen. Every one of them required some measure of research and development, and integral in the manufacture of each is some kind of a circuit board. It may be dime size (or smaller) or much, much larger, but circuitry is, by definition, an element in every piece of electronics. Those circuit boards have a whole manufacturing process of their own, and they require custom wire baskets for the essential cleaning part of the process.
Even the custom cleaning racks for circuit boards require some level of design and engineering, and Three M Tool (threemtool.com), of York, Pennsylvania, works with that aspect of electronics manufacturing. Three M Tool has a team of engineers who work with clients to design custom metal baskets for almost any application. With a range of materials and surface finishes available, as well as an endless variety of combinations of various mesh sizes and handles, not to mention the different sizes and shapes, Three M Tool can provide the custom basket or rack to meet almost any need.
With over fifty years of experience and a solid reputation of excellence, Three M Tool has stayed up to date, with cutting edge designing software and all the tools necessary to manufacture the baskets and racks that they provide. Their focus is meeting client requirements with thoroughly tested materials. Besides the world of wire basket possibilities that they offer, Three M Tool requires no minimum order, and they promise delivery of exactly what you ordered, on time.
Our ancestors may have done just fine without all the electronics we enjoy now, but I’m not sure how many of us could do as well. Maybe we’re all spoiled, and maybe we’ve just adapted and are too stubborn to revert!
