Shaft locking bushings
The ETP Hyloc provides hub shaft connection even with high torque and radial loading and can be reset at diffrerent positions without losing concentricity
The ETP Hyloc provides hub-shaft connection in difficult operating environments and excellent concentricity despite high torque and radial loading of the system. Each roll-forming wheel in the system shapes steel material into bar stock as it passes through the system. This precise and accurate shaft to roll forming wheel connection produces smooth and consistent bar stock. The ETP Hyloc can be quickly repositioned on the shaft or removed for changing to another roll forming wheel size. It is also designed with an internal double-walled steel sleeve that encloses a conical shaped, moveable piston. The ETP Hyloc can be reset at different positions on the shaft without losing concentricity.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
