Solartron Mobrey describes the Squing 2 fork point level switch in a 4-p, full-color brochure. The Squing 2 incorporates a tuning fork that resonates constantly at its natural frequency, and any moisture change on the fork alters that frequency. In response, the liquid level switch changes the electronic output. The switch works with most liquids, including coatings, aerated liquids, and slurries.

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.
