The HME single door version includes 43 sizes ranging from 1400 high x 600 wide x 500 mm deep to 2200 x 1000 x 600 mm. The 36 HMET double door units are available from 1400 x 1200 x 500 mm to 2200 x 1200 x 600mm and the 23 HFMD single door and the HFMDT double door flanged disconnect versions, sized to accept disconnect switches from all leading manufacturers, from 1400 x 800 x 500 mm to 2200 x 10 00 x 500 mm.

The modular design enables units to be easily joined together for large scale and mixed use applications. An extensive range of accessories, optimized for the HME family are available. Window doors, 19-in. mounting rails, air conditioners, filter fans, heaters and thermostats, shelves, a grid mounting system, various handle and interlock options, internal LED and fluorescent light kits, bridging and barrier panels, swing frames and panels, plinths, tamper resistant screws and top mount cable modules enable the enclosures to be easily configured to the application.

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.
