Energy Efficiency Strategy & Tactics
When it comes to sustainability, it’s not about where you stand on climate change, it’s about where you stand on efficiency. This Webcast will get to the heart of three core approaches to efficiency improvement in manufacturing operations: Also known as vector control, this tactic enables high efficiency at faster motor speeds.
When it comes to sustainability, it’s not about where you stand on climate change, it’s about where you stand on efficiency. This Webcast will get to the heart of three core approaches to efficiency improvement in manufacturing operations:
Field-oriented Motor Control
Also known as vector control, this tactic enables high efficiency at faster motor speeds.
How using PC-based measurement and control to increase the value of existing capital equipment by extending its use;
Power Quality Monitoring
When it comes to obtaining utmost efficiencies, it’s not only about how much power you’re using that matters, but when you consume it and the quality of the power that is being delivered.
Moderated by David Greenfield, Control Engineering editorial director, this Webcast panel discussion also features Brian MacCleery, National Instruments senior product manager for Embedded and Control products; Brett Burger, National Instruments product manager for data acquisition products; and Arun Veeramani, Product Manager for LabView Industrial.

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.
