Transformer for energy-intensive industries
General Electric's Prolec-GE Multitap Transformer is designed to deliver customized power to energy-intensive industries such as oil & gas and operate in extreme conditions like including high humidity, ultraviolet radiation, and chemical pollution.
General Electric's (NYSE: GE) Prolec-GE Multitap Transformer is designed to deliver customized power to energy-intensive industries such as oil & gas, which have specific electricity requisites to maintain their operations.
The Multitap Transformer is able to continue working through severe electrical distribution system disturbances, making it useful in continuous, reliable operations like onshore artificial lift operations. It is also built to operate under a variety of extreme conditions found within the oil & gas industry like including high humidity, ultraviolet radiation, chemical pollution, and saline fog environments.
The Multitap Transformer powers the pump during artificial lift extraction methods to increase the flow of oil from a production well to the surface. As it drills down further into the earth, the artificial lift needs access to different voltages. The Multitap Transformer enables oil and gas drillers to easily change the voltage of the transformer to ensure a continuous supply of energy.
The Multitap Transformer-a step-up transformer-is used to increase secondary voltage. It includes a robust core and coil design that supports short-circuit forces and prevents the rectangular coil from distorting under fault conditions. The new transformer also is designed and constructed under stringent quality standards and can be customized to meet a customer's specific needs.

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.
