How efficient are you in powering your plant?
Did you know that the electrical power your facility receives is made up of two components: real power
and reactive power.
While real power performs useful work within your facility, reactive power does not. In fact, reactive power actually constitutes an energy loss and can consume capacity in transformers, generators, wiring, and transmission lines.
Power factor, a measure of electrical efficiency, compares the amount of real, or useful, power to the total power consumed. If power factor is not 100%, your facility is not operating at its highest efficiency and is probably paying penalty fees to utilities
who charge for poor efficiency.


Learn how you to improve your electrical efficiency from our panel of experts
who will discuss:

The relationship between power factor and electrical efficiency
Power factor measurement and
correction techniques
Power factor correction issues
in a changing technological
landscape

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.
