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

After two years of economic concerns, manufacturing leaders once again have homed in on the single biggest issue facing their operations:

It's the workers—or more specifically, the lack of workers.

The 2017 Plant Engineering Salary Survey looks at not just what plant managers make, but what they think. As they look across their plants today, plant managers say they don’t have the operational depth to take on the new technologies and new challenges of global manufacturing.
