Light pipe

The Apollo light pipe is a sealed skylight system comprising a dome, a pipe and a diffuser. Designed to capture and control light with reflective materials, the unit harvests sunlight, focusing the light through the dome and down to the facility floor. Internal and external seals keep warm, moist air from entering the tubular unit and condensing in the Acrylite FF dome, and a seamless, one-piece aluminum flashing construction is non-corrosive and rust-resistant. The large-diameter aperture is made of highly polished material to provide 98% total reflectivity.

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.
