The Enhanced Precision Super Duty (EPSD) Series features swivel technology to improve the bearing's element of contact
The Enhanced Precision Super Duty (EPSD) Series is well suited to handle the rigorous applications found in the heavy manufacturing industry. The EPSD is designed with Hamilton’s most advanced swivel technology, Hamilton Precision Integrated (HPI). HPI improves the swivel bearing’s element of contact and more than doubles the number of contact points. The casters can be ordered with easy-rolling, maintenance-free double sealed precision ball bearings or hard-wearing precision tapered roller bearings.

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.
