Pump saves space

Model 3196 CC is a close-coupled version of model 3196 ANSI process pump and is designed for general industrial service where space is limited or the cost of a frame-mounted pump is prohibitive. While the pump is not designed to meet ANSI B 73.1, it will meet some of the requirements because the liquid end has all the features and benefits of ANSI 3196.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
