Industrial production index
An increase in industrial production index indicates an increase in manufacturing activity, which in turn drives demand for material handling products.
The Conveyor Manufacturing industry is a mature industry with clearly defined markets and widely accepted product lines that have few substitutes. A variety of downstream industries drive demand for this industry’s diverse set of product lines.
Beyond 2016, industry performance will strengthen as key domestic and foreign downstream markets grow in line with falling unemployment, renewed consumer spending and increased business investment.
Material Handling Innovation
Maintenance Intensive Worm Gear Reducers
Southern needed an alternative to its continuous purchasing and stocking of eight different gearbox ratings at a cost of $300 to $800 each. The company had maintenance-intensive worm gear reducers that often leaked and failed, causing excessive plant downtime.
