We at Al Ameen Engineering Dubai always love to think out of the box and love to spend 20% of our time experimenting with different ways we can help improve the community around us. In March we received a request to make the following art from art exhibition located in Dubai. As we are in an industry that relies on volume, art is something totally opposite to what we do as it has less volume and tedious element incorporated in sophisticated design. The manager Shahnawaz convinced the GM "Why not we try something different and out of the box, who knows we may learn something new from this."
The artists wanted something unique, a stainless steel bar bent right angles in the end. This should be affixed to a wall which the stainless steel rod must pass through and be screwed at the rear end of the wall. After brainstorming with the engineers, they recommended to try to bend the stainless steel pipe and do stainless steel fabrication to the ends. Bending a hollow stainless steel pipe is very tedious task which can break the rod. Sand was filled inside the rod and then bent right angles to prevent the collapse of the rod within. After that flanges were made so the rod could be screwed in the rear end. When we delivered the material we got to met some artists and loved what they were doing for the community for almost nothing in return. This encounter opened ourselves to serendipity which is lacking in the industry. Irrespective this experience grew us.
