Spirax Sarco has embraced the digital age with the release of its quarterly Steam News Magazine mobile application. Readers can now subscribe to a digital version available as an app on all iOS tablet devices.

The magazine app remains 100% faithful to the current digital edition with additional interactive features to enhance subscriber experience. The app enables readers to search not only the latest issue, but previous archived issues going back to when the magazine was first introduced in March 2011. The app's navigation feature offers its subscribers a new level of visual interaction by allowing subscribers to instantly find relevant articles quickly and efficiently. In the future, each article will have the ability to be shared via a number of social media tools, including Twitter, Facebook and e-mail. As a value added feature, the sort out Spirax Sarco Design of Fluid Systems: Steam Utilization and Hook-Ups books are also included within the app.
"We have been methodically and strategically finding new ways to satiate the appetite for our content on new platforms," Tracy Britt, marketing communications coordinator for Spirax Sarco said. "The app features full interactive capabilities, distinctive features, and a unique design that sets a new bar within the industry." The Steam News app is available via the Apple App Store on your tablet device.
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.
