Electronic Machines For Business

There are many electronic gadgets which can help a company run smoothly, from cash registers and security systems to landlines and the internet. These may seem obvious but there are other lesser-known electronic devices that business owners must have. Some of these machines include etching, laser coding, depaneling and conformal coating equipment.

These types of electronic devices are used in various production and manufacturing processes, specifically the storage of small components like IC chips and resistors. If these components are not clearly marked and visually examined carefully, mistakes are frequently made in inventory management. By installing handheld computers which link product information to shelf information, a non-mistake inspection process can be made, and the speed of inspection and delivery can be increased.

Commercial electronics include power generators that convert DC electricity into other forms of energy, such as AC or diesel. These electronic devices are used both for industrial and domestic purposes.

While none of them was a computer in its own right however, the practical knowledge of mechanical engineering gained through the development of business machines in the 19th century was instrumental in helping to lay the foundations of modern computing. It was not until the mid-20th century that Alan Turing and others produced a fully functional machine that was capable of performing the logic of operations. The machine, named the Colossus was constructed at Bletchley Park with great secrecy to break the codes and ciphers created by German electromechanical devices such as Enigma and Geheimschreiber.
