PTFE cable doesn't require cable dividers with cable chain
Several polytetrafluoroethylene high flex, clean cable solutions from Gore include High Flex Flat Cable, Trackless High Flex Cable, and High Flex Round Cable
Several PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) high flex, clean (low particulation and outgassing) cable solutions include High Flex Flat Cable, Trackless High Flex Cable, and High Flex Round Cable. The High Flex Flat Cable provides excellent cable management because it does not require cable dividers within cable chain. This reduces particulation and results in extended cable life. The Trackless High Flex Cable eliminates the need for cable chain and many of the problems associated with cable chain, such as particulation, vibration, size, weight and noise. A low-particulation jacket is available for the High Flex Round Cable.
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.
