Efficient compressors

Highly efficient and flexible rotary screw, variable speed drive air compressors are designed to handle the full spectrum of load demands while maintaining maximum efficiency. These compressors outperform most VSD compressors on the market and manage a greater range of air demand fluctuations to save energy at any mode of operation. Twenty models range from 20 to 150 hp.

Blowing and drying

WindJet compressed air products are used for drying and blow-off applications. Low Flow air knives and Variable Air Amplifiers convert compressed air into high velocity air streams that increase blow-off and drying efficiencies, while simultaneously reducing energy costs. These products require minimal maintenance and operate at noise levels that will not exceed 69 dBA.

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.
