E-Z Tec VFS metal detector finds minute pieces of ferrous contamination in gravity fed material flow, ensuring product purity before bagging and sealing. The low profile design allows the unit to fit between the checkweigher and vertical form, fill, and seal machine. A timing device marks the bag when contamination is detected.
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.
