The LNF Q200 Series analyzers, benchtop units by Spectro Inc. aim to provide particle size, count, and shape data
The analyzers, benchtop units provide particle size, count, and shape data as well as viscosity information using the LaserNet Fines (LNF) fluid imaging and classification system. The LNF technology allows the company to develop new offerings based on the desktop, off-line version of LNF, which uses a pulsed laser diode, a digital charged coupled device (CCD) camera, and advanced pattern recognition software to classify particle shapes while also providing accurate counts of particles larger than 4µm.

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.
