New enclosure design cost less and does more
Springfield, O. -Rittal's new TS8 enclosure system cost 20% less, is 30% stronger and 15% lighter than Rittal's PS 4000 family of modular enclosures. The TS8 enclosure system is the result of several years of intensive R&D efforts to create a new 'standard' in enclosure systems. TS8 standard enclosures have designed in EMI protection, full enclosure bonding without cables and straps, meet Zone 3 seismic requirements, and incorporate a symmetrical design that allows enclosures to be placed side-by-side, front-to-back, in a corner, or any imaginable configuration. Where 'all around' access is required, TS8 enclosures can accommodate four doors, or hinged sidewalls. The unique patented TS8 design even allows sidewalls to become heat exchangers.

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.
