The Flex-Block plinth/base assembly is designed specifically for free-standing enclosures as well as liquid cooling packages. The Flex-Block design makes it possible to quickly clip together the plinth/base components and attach accessories like casters, leveling feet and cable management pieces without special tools. The base/plinth system comprises four corner modules and covers made of strong, fiberglass reinforced plastic, plus sheet steel side trim panels. The modular design and increased assembly space allow the four corner pieces, which support the entire weight of the enclosure, to be quickly and easily fitted underneath the enclosure.
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.
