Enclosures have high-impact, UV-resistant polycarbonate materials
Integra Enclosures new products measure 24x24x10 inches, are high-impact, UV-resistant polycarbonate materials, and are first of their kind, to the U.S. market, the company said.
Integra Enclosures announced their 24x24x10-inch enclosure product, a part of the Genesis line, designed for larger-scaled application protection solutions. Integra’s new 24x24x10 products are reportedly the first of their kind and specifications to hit the U.S. market.
Made of high-impact, UV-resistant polycarbonate materials, the Genesis line 24x24x10 enclosures also boast flexible interior mounting and adjustable swing panel mounting system. Multiple bosses on the product reportedly allow for easy installation of devices and DIN rails.
Integra's new product was designed to meet a reportedly growing demand for larger enclosure options in the energy industry. “At Integra, we are constantly exploring how we can serve our customers better with quality enclosures. We pride ourselves on staying in touch with them and knowing the demands of their industries – that’s why we’ve added the new 24x24x10 products, and why we’ll continue offering innovative products as new needs arise,” said Jim McWilliams, president of Integra Enclosures.

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.
