White, blue wire duct
White and blue wire duct, with UL and CSA approvals, are now available.
White and blue wire duct options are now available, with UL and CSA approvals, and are made from PVC material with a V0 inflammability rating as per UL 94. The white and blue wire duct has the same features as the gray and halogen-free duct. The flexible fingers will not snap when the user runs wire through them. The wire duct features a notched score line that eliminates the need for notching pliers to break off the fingers. However, breaking the wall will require the use of a cutter. The cover’s contour allows it to snap on easily and fit securely. The duct and cover are available as a complete set, or the covers can be ordered individually. The wire duct ranges in size from 25 mm to 120 mm to meet the needs of a variety of applications and is available in two-meter lengths.
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.
