Eaton's DS7 soft-start controllers
Eaton introduces DS7 soft-start controllers, which provide smooth acceleration and deceleration of the load, minimizing shock to mechanical components. Designed for pump, fan, and conveyor belt applications—as well as water/wastewater and heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) industries—the DS7 soft starters reduce demands made on a motor during start-up, resulting in reduced energy requirements. The Eaton DS7 soft starter can provide customers with the benefits of soft starting without necessitating a change in enclosure sizes or additional assemblies. It also has an integrated bypass relay. The DS7 is available for current ranges from 16 to 32 amps. With an asymmetric delay angle control, the DS7 helps make torque behavior similar to a three-phase starter. It can take 24 V of direct or alternating current, or 110 V/230 V of alternating control voltage. It is Underwriters Laboratories approved.

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.
