Designed for use in automotive, metal fabrication, conveyance, textile manufacturing and other applications, contact-cooled compressors feature a proprietary Intelligent Controller. Equipped with intuitive operator control that includes an LCD graphic interface, the controller includes selectable software with adjustable operating parameters, a built -in sequencer that can coordinate up to three machines, and time-saving diagnostics with displays that identify and alert operators of system overload with machine shut-down when required. The units’ Rapid Stop power conservation system eliminates unloaded running time and protects motors.
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.
