Exhaust piping module added to generator sizing software
Generac has introduced the Power Design Pro generator sizing software with a new exhaust piping module.
Generac Power Systems Inc. has enhanced its Power Design Pro generator sizing software with a new exhaust piping module. This exhaust piping module allows users to enter the length of the exhaust piping run and the number of various elbow types. It then automatically selects the appropriate exhaust piping for a selected generator. The module also allows you to manually select the pipe size, after which it calculates the engine's exhaust back pressure. The exhaust piping module supports single and dual exhaust engine configurations. Introduced in 2009, Generac's Power Design Pro is a complete generator sizing and system design tool supporting both electrical and mechanical design.

2012 Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
