ITW Warehouse Automation introduced its StorFast cart-based, ultra-high-density AS/RS solution. The cart-based AS/RS maximizes storage capacity with higher density and throughput. The designs are modular and can easily be expanded as capacity requirements and SKUs increase. The carts operate on each level of the system and have the ability to change levels, which gives the StorFast built-in redundancy, resulting in greater efficiency.

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.
