Solution Partner Program for Information extended to China
Aeromat, a Guangzhou-based industrial automation systems integrator, has been accepted in implementing FactoryTalk applications from Rockwell Automation.
Aeromat International Ltd. has been accepted into the Rockwell Automation PartnerNetwork program as the first Solution Partner for Information in China. By expanding this program, Rockwell Automation provides Chinese manufacturers with a well-versed network of information system professionals to help integrate their FactoryTalk software applications with plant-floor control systems for improved access to critical, real-time data.
Already an approved Rockwell Automation Solution Partner for control system applications, Aeromat recently completed a rigorous program establishing the company’s success in delivering projects utilizing the FactoryTalk software suite for manufacturing intelligence and performance management. Aeromat will help customers in Guangzhou, the manufacturing base of the Pearl River Delta, and throughout China better integrate and view disparate operating and business data systems to solve manufacturing problems before they impact the bottom line.
Aeromat has also designed and delivered their own visualization systems based on Rockwell Software FactoryTalk applications, including FactoryTalk Historian, VantagePoint EMI, View SE, and AssetCentre. The company’s visualization system incorporates human-machine interface, statistical process control, overall equipment effectiveness, and power, maintenance, spare parts and key performance indicator management.

Annual 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.
