Super Air Nozzles, EXAIR CorporationAir nozzle 

EXAIR’s Stainless Steel Super Air Nozzle offers 6.6 lbs of blowing force for blow-off, cooling, and drying applications in corrosive, high-temperature, food and pharmaceutical environments. The air nozzle has an aerodynamic design that directs compressed air to a single point of convergence, allowing a concentrated stream of high-velocity airflow. The nozzle contains applications including ejection of heavy parts, drying, part and machinery cleaning, chip removal, liquid blow-off, and cooling hot parts.

Heat of Compression Dryers, Ingersoll-Rand plcHOC dryers

Ingersoll Rand’s new line of heat-of-compression (HOC) dryers provides flexibility, reliability, and energy efficiency in a low-profile package. The dryers use heat produced during the compression process, which allows for instrument-quality air to be delivered using virtually no energy. The dryers contain Smart Control technology, which adjusts dryer operation to minimize dew point and temperature spikes. To prevent wasting compressing air, the dryers feature no-loss drains. The HOC dryers by Ingersoll Rand can be used with multiple compressors, reducing footprint requirements.

R-Series Rotary Screw Air Compressors, Ingersoll-Rand plcRotary screw air compressors

Ingersoll Rand’s R-Series range of rotary screw air compressors is available in fixed speed and Nirvana variable speed drive. The new range of compressors comes with the Xe-Series controller, featuring a high-resolution LCD color display. The controller provides access and remote control of the compressor from any tablet, smartphone, or PC. The compressors have an integrated Total Air System dryer and filtration option that provides clean, dry air in a single package. The new design of the compressors reduces maintenance and allows for easy service with the swing-out separator covers, longer life consumables, and easy-access hinged doors.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
