Taking time out for training is one of the most important ways plant managers can improve productivity or focus attention on crucial plant-floor issues such as safety. The one hour spent in learning can often pay huge dividends.
PLANT ENGINEERING Webcast series continues May 25 at 1 p.m. CST, disclosing strategies that reduce arc flash risks, and minimize potential for arc flash and arc blast incidents.
Our panel of experts, including Paul Frisk at FLIR Systems and Joseph Weigel of Schneider Electric will discuss issues such as:
How infrared thermography can prevent arc flash
How circuit breakers and fuses can prevent arc flash
How education and information can prevent arc flash
The Webcast is free learning, provided by the editors of Plant Engineering and its sponsor, FLIR Systems. It also allows for questions and answers between the panelists and viewers, creating even more interactive learning.
So what happens if you can’t make it on May 25 at 1 p.m.? What if you see the initial Webcast and decide your second and third shift need to see this as well? One of the great things about Webcasts is that they are learning on demand. The Webcast is available in our Engineer’s Resource Guide (ERG) for 90 days after the initial air date, giving you plenty of time to schedule another shift to view the material, or to review the material for action in our own plant.
All of these Webcasts are available on CD-ROM to continue your on-demand education. Go to the Webcast Archive page at www.plantengineering.com .

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.
