Cummins Power Generation has begun production of a new line of trailerized mobile generator sets ranging from 60 to 300 kW. The new products come with several changes that improve both functionality and aesthetics. The new products are offered at the 60, 80, 100, 150, 200, and 300 kW nodes. They are also backed by an improved warranty from 1 year unlimited to 3 years or 3,000 hours. Product improvements include: the use of stainless steel fasteners and a new paint process for improved durability and longer-lasting aesthetic appeal, and a new enclosure design that protects against water intrusion. The design includes door-grounding straps and a wiring harness with visual identification codes for increased durability and easier service.
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.
