Electric tankless units
The Tronic 3000 and 5000 electric tankless units from Bosch eliminate the need for costly piping and gas line installation and have efficiencies of 99% and 97%, respectively.
The Tronic 3000 and 5000 electric tankless series from Bosch, with 99% and 97% efficiencies, respectively, offer a variety of installation options and configurations, and performance inside some of the smallest footprint requirements in the industry. The Tronic series eliminates the need for costly piping and gas line installation, freeing valuable square footage. Unlike traditional tank units, Tronic products are tankless. The lack of stored hot water inside the unit eliminates standby heat losses, minimizes mineral and sediment buildup, and significantly increases efficiency. These point-of-use products also eliminate wait time for hot water as well as piping heat losses. Offered in five compact models (12, 9.5, 7.2, 6, and 3.4 kW), the Tronic 3000 series is an under-sink design offering 99% 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.
