Dry gauges act liquid-filled

PLUS Performance option enables a dry gauge to act like a liquid-filled gauge. These gauges resist the damaging effects of vibration and pulsation while avoiding the costly pitfalls of liquid-filled gauges. They have been proven to last at least twice as long as conventional dry gauges, which saves time and money on repair and replacement costs. Dresser Instruments ashcroft.com Write 307 on PE card

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.
