The NITRA line of pneumatic components has been expanded with tubing and fittings, as well as blowguns and aluminum manifolds.
The NITRA line of pneumatic components has been expanded with tubing and fittings, as well as blowguns and aluminum manifolds. Available in 100-ft and 250-ft lengths, Nitra 16 mm polyurethane tubing has a shore A 98 hardness rating, provides outside diameter tolerance and kink resistance. Nitra brass adapter fittings and plugs are available in 10 different styles to meet most pneumatic applications such as air, water, oil, oxygen, nitrogen, and argon. Also added are quick-disconnect fittings, which allow easy changing of tools or hose connections. Nitra aluminum manifolds withstand maximum pressure up to 500 psi and are available in two styles. Nitra blowguns (or nozzles) are available in heavy-duty palm type with safety tip, pistol grips (aluminum and plastic models), pocket, and plastic grip with flexible nozzles in various lengths.

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.
