Fish and glow rods
Splinter Guard Fish and Glow Rods keep hands free from fiberglass splinters when wire pulling and come in a variety of flexibilities and lengths
Splinter Guard Fish and Glow Rods come with a proprietary protective coating to keep hands free of fiberglass splinters when wire pulling. Raw fiberglass shards become exposed when rods scrap against the sharp edges of electrical boxes, wire trays and threaded rod. Splinter Guard Rods are available in 5/32”, 3/16” and ¼” flexibilities and a variety of lengths. Sets include bullet nose and hook attachments to attach and grab wires. The sections can be threaded together to customize the length needed. In addition, the improved luminescent rods glow two times longer and twice as bright in dark workspaces.
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.
