Permanent, electromagentic pulleys
A series of powerful magnetic pulleys designed for automatic separation of heavy tramp iron contaminants.
A series of powerful magnetic pulleys for automatic separation of heavy tramp iron contaminants from conveyor-transported materials are now available. These pulleys provide ideal automatic removal of unwanted iron from materials conveyed on belts to prevent machinery damage and product contamination. The axial interpole magnetic circuit provides a uniform magnetic field to remove tramp iron from material on almost any belt conveyor. All Permanent Magnet Axial Interpole (AIP) Pulleys are made of steel center tubes with welded dividers to securely hold magnet stacks. Pulleys are all-welded heavy-duty construction for use in severe applications involving extra-long conveyors, heavy loads or start-stop operations.
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.
