The Redi-Rail cable tray system by Cooper B-Line features an I-Beam side rail design, which reduces design time, installation cost, and procurement costs. The system also utilizes the efficiency of the I-Beam shape along with the strength and corrosion resistance of Aluminum 6063-T6 material. This makes the Redi-Rail system easier to cut, handle, and install while still maintaining a NEMA 12B load rating. The Redi-Rail system has also optimized the location of the pre-punched rung and splice holes. The holes are positioned at the top and bottom of the I-Beam web. Because they are mechanically fastened, each rung can be moved or removed for precise cable dropouts.
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.
