The WP 3000 Series Walkie Pallet Truck
The WP 3000 Series Walkie Pallet Truck is built to be the most durable electric pallet jack in the industry. It provides exceptional maneuverability and control that is vital for demanding applications where pallet trucks must maneuver in tight spaces, withstand impacts, deliver power on demand and give operators controlled performance. The WP 3000 incorporates technology such as AC traction and e-GEN braking. The brushless AC motor technology is designed to provide responsive acceleration, smooth direction changes and consistent performance throughout the battery discharge cycle. The e-GEN braking system utilizes full-motor braking to provide operators with smooth, consistent braking; and, because braking occurs in the motor, energy is returned to the battery for further efficiency gains. Both systems improve uptime by reducing routine maintenance and adjustments associated with motor brushes and friction brakes, leading to greater reliability and lower service costs.

2012 Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
