The high power output of the C3000 Series genset is also able to meet stringent EPA Tier 4 Final emissions taking effect in 2015. Cummins Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) after treatment system is intended to replace the exhaust muffler on the genset, offering a proven and highly flexible packaging solution. TheQSK95 engine, alternator, controls, and Tier 4 SCR after treatment have been developed simultaneously with the C3000 to deliver a fully integrated and optimized generator set.
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.
