Steam-powered factories could be built in cities.
Steam-powered factories could be built in cities.
Factories could be built away from rivers using this alternative source of power.
Once factories were dependent on steam power instead of water power they could be built away from rivers. However, coal is heavy and expensive to transport; and so it still made sense for factories to be built on or close to waterways and not too far from coalfields. Later, with the arrival of generated electricity, it became possible, for the first time, for factories to built in all sorts of places, as the generation of power no longer had to take place on site.
The steam engine freed factories from the water wheel, and James Watts double - acting rotative version was also used for pumping water out of mines, and powered locomotives. Factories could then be built almost anywhere, and could be closer to needed resources. Many moved closer to ports, to reduce haulage costs.
The invention of the steam engine, because it reduced dependence on water power
The development of the steam engine allowed the Industrial Revolution to push forward in a way that would not have been possible without it. Prior to the invention of steam, factories could only be run by wind or water. This greatly limited where factories could be located. The number of factories that could be built were now limitless.
It meant that factories could be built anywhere.It allowed factories to work 24 hours a day and this began the invention of shifts and the work week. Weekends happened much later. They could also produce more products in shorter times leading to production methods used today.
Factories in the 1900's; mostly 1905, were very dirty and unsafe. Disease spread quickly due to the uncleanliness of the work environment. And there weren't much restrictions on machines and such. You probably could see a child working a high-working machine!
Cotton mills, corn mills, etc. where built along streams and rivers to use water power to run the machinery. When steam-engines took over, the factories and mills could be built anywhere.
They realized they could save money by moving their factories to countries where they could pay the workers less.
The factories could pay women lower wages than they could pay men.
A group of factories could be called an industrial complex or industrial park.
It could not be opened because of some restrictions. The restrictions could be due to 3rd party applications.
it could keep factories out of their neighbourhoods
Technology has lead to less factories. Establishment of new factories has been reduced by machines. Today in most factories, robot do jobs human could not do.
In the state of TN, NO. I was fired from a job related accident, I came back to work with restrictions and was fired because they could not meet my restrictions, Then I was told I could not collect unemployment because of my restrictions.
The development of steam engines was the biggest change. It provided power where ever there was something to burn. The factories could be located closer to the raw materials.Electricity allowed manufacturers to locate their plants wherever they wanted, not just near sources of power, such as rivers.

Simply because they could. No one in power was looking out for the welfare of those children. Children were cheap and easily replaced when they became sick or injured. They could be taught to do monotonous tasks and could not speak up for themselves. They were extremely vulnerable to exploitation by wealthy factory owners.
The invention of the static steam engine led to the industrial revolution in Britain. It meant that factories could be built almost anywhere, and production machinery could be powered by a single static steam engine.
Private owned arms manufacturers, The manufacturers had government contracts, There was A revolver built to military specs. that had an orriginal supply price of $25.00 Ea. then another co. decided to try and built it as well, They found out that they could produce it for $12.50 EA. I can't remember the name, but, maybe someone knows and will add it.
The result was that many more cities were built and there were more factories spread out across america. Factories were also allowing more jobs for new immigrants because they could do the jobs quicker and more efficiantly.And they lost money
The North could produce war goods more efficiently and quickly, because of all the factories they had. The South didn't really had factories at all, so they couldn't really get the same amount of war goods as efficiently and quickly as the North could. I don't really know if this counts as industrialism, but I am including it anyway. The trains were probably built with metal pieces molded in factories. The North had most of the trains and railways so they could supplies around faster than the South
Usually kids worked at factories, and the machines would hurt them and sometimes could kill them. For example if you had a loose clothes it would pull you in . It really depends on what factories.
