Control Engineering upgraded its digital edition software in January 2012 for faster and more intuitive navigation on more devices and platforms, delivering a more interactive subscriber experience.

With the goal of increasing value and use of content for its engineering audience, CFE Media announces a new, more interactive digital edition. Control Engineering transitioned its digital edition software in January 2012 to the PageSuite Digital Magazine platform. The PageSuite platform allows for faster and clearer on-screen navigation and allows the Control Engineering staff the flexibility to incorporate rich media elements such as video and Flash overlays into our digital editions.

Control Engineering enhanced its digital edition in January 2012 to increase interactivity with subscribers and add readability across platforms.

Moving forward, the Control Engineering digital editions will also be coded in HTML5, which allows the editions to be viewed in browsers on the iPad, iPhone, and all other Apple devices as well as Android and other mobile operating systems.

“We’re excited to present our readers with a more interactive platform that allows CFE Media content to be viewed on a broader range of mobile devices. We feel the new platform is a great addition to CFE Media’s product offerings, allowing us another method to deliver quality content in whatever form our readers wish to receive it in.” according to Paul Brouch, CFE Media’s web production manager. “We’ll continue to add enhancements and interactive elements as we move forward. Naturally, much of how we proceed will be based on subscriber feedback, so let us know what you think.”

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
