Victaulic has made the TA-SCOPE by Tour and Andersson (TA) available in North America. The TA-SCOPE is a wireless handheld device that allows contractors to verify, measure, and maintain complex hydronic systems quickly and efficiently. The TA-SCOPE provides measurement of differential pressure, flow, temperature, and power to ensure the hydronic heating and cooling systems are operating at the most economic and comfortable settings. An independent wireless sensor communicates with the TA-SCOPE to deliver data quickly, enabling contractors to troubleshoot hydronic problems and log system performances on-site.
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.
