Re-shoring has been a prevalent trend for the past 4 years in design and testing. More and more we can see American Engineering Testing done properly, right at home. ENSER Corporation has been in business for over 70 years as an excellent on-shored solution for design, fabrication tooling, FEA and testing.  Click here for more information on what we do. 

Near-shoring – the locating of manufacturing and production close to end markets – is gaining traction and, along with reshoring, chipping away at China’s offshore manufacturing empire. A 2015 survey of manufacturing and distribution companies serving North America and Western Europe by AlixPartners shows an acceleration in near-shoring. Thirty-two percent of respondents reported that they have already near-shored or are in the process of doing so to meet end-market demand. Forty-eight percent said they are likely to engage in near-shoring activities within the next one to three years. The shift away from China manufacturing may be small compared to the massive size of the country’s manufacturing sector. But it may be affecting China’s economic growth. In recent months, China’s economic growth has stalled below 7 percent. That growth is still huge compared with growth in developed economies, but it’s small compared with the country’s rapid economic expansion in recent decades. “My very rough estimate is that 400,000 jobs have moved out of China so far,” Harry Moser, founder and president of the Reshoring Initiative, told Design News. “Is that enough for a dent given that China has 100 to 150 million manufacturing workers? I’d say yes, and it’s certainly a huge impact versus shifting maybe 400,000 jobs a year into China from abroad.” Moser noted that the trend away from offshoring manufacturing in China is not exclusive to the US. “This is happening in all developed countries and even some developing countries,” said Moser. “[South] Korea has a program to reshore from China.” While AlixPartners pegs Mexico as the winner in near-shored manufacturing of goods headed for the US and Canadian markets, Moser believes the US will get the bulk of that production work. “Of the work shifting out of China to be sold in North America, our best estimate, based on surveys, is: 40 percent is going to the US; 25 percent to Mexico; a little to Canada; and the rest to Vietnam, Cambodia, India, and others,” said Moser. Moser sees the shift away from China manufacturing as a long-term trend that will force the country to develop its domestic market in order to make up for the loss. “Robust growth [in China] based on exports is history,” said Moser. “Future growth will depend on domestic consumption.”

The tight supply of qualified candidates in the engineering industry requires hiring managers to adapt to new strategies and act very quickly to attain the candidates with top talent.  Many clients have implemented a one day interview with clients making offers that same day just to secure qualified talent. Other clients are having a hard time finding qualified candidates for their direct positions so have switched their focus to temp candidates with the option to hire after 6 months.

The manufacturing industry business conditions continue to improve and the outlook remains positive. US Manufacturing reports from March show activity increased for the fifth straight month with factories expanding despite a strong U.S. dollar, which makes American products more expensive in overseas markets. They also have recovered from big cutbacks in the energy industry, which reflected low oil prices. Factory orders were up 5.5 percent from a year ago  with total shipments of manufactured goods increased 0.2 percent after surging 2.5 percent in December.  Manufacturing, which accounts for about 12 percent of the U.S. economy, is regaining its footing after being buffeted by lower oil prices and a strong dollar.

Engineering Staffing has evolved into a lucrative and diverse space. It has blossomed from a sector known for providing office personnel to fill in for sick or vacationing workers to a major industry vertical that provides a full range of human resource services to virtually every type of business and employer. Staffing for a business can have dramatic effects on the quality of the organization’s work, its retention rates and level of customer service. Making appropriate staffing decisions is one of the most important tasks for a manager or a small business owner as investing on individual and talent is another form of resource investment that can impact the net value of the company exponentially. Earlier staffing primarily constituted adding staff to an organization and appointing right people in place to help the company accomplish their short term goals or impending project deadlines. However, over the years the staffing industry has upgraded its dynamics as organizations today want the best talent in industry to recruit and retain. Managers and recruiters today are focusing on acquiring talent with specialized skill-sets and experience. This trend also reflects on the learning and development sector for many organizations where cultivating skills and nurturing talent provides a competitive advantage of developing and retaining in-house talent along with a reduction in outsourcing costs. Given the tremendous impact of human resource in the modern corporate landscape, Engineering Staffing solutions shines as a big differentiator for any organization’s success factor. Companies employing Staffing solutions must be extremely cautious over selecting the right partner in order to find desirable individual talent in the market. The editorial team at the ES Outlook magazine has handpicked a slew of Top 10 Most Recommended Staffing Service Providers, that have achieved a niche stature in the market through their staffing solutions and outstanding results year-after-year.

Renewable Energy’s Secret Weapon Charles Murray, Senior Technical Editor, Electronics & Test Indeed, the breadth of potential solutions is emerging, not only in the form of varying chemistries, but also in the format of the storage source. In May, Tesla Motors made its play for the storage market by rolling out a product that can be mounted on a garage wall near a home’s electrical panel. The company said that the unit, known as the Powerwall, is part of Tesla’s effort to wean the world off fossil fuels. “This is within the power of humanity to do,” said Tesla CEO Elon Musk. “We have done things like this before. It’s not impossible.” Tesla’s product, which employs lithium-ion battery technology, measures 34 x 51 x 7 inches and costs $3,500 for a 10-kWh of storage. Tesla said it also plans to sell bigger battery blocks for use in commercial and utility applications. Blocks containing 100-kWh of storage could be grouped to create larger systems offering as much as 10 MWh, Musk said. Experts say that either format — home storage or utility-sized systems — can serve as viable grid solutions. “You can think of solar on an individual’s roof as a distributed power plant on the grid,” said Chamberlain of the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research. “That’s where we are headed in the future.” Pronouncements such as those have created a sense of optimism in the storage community, which is why the Energy Storage Association now counts such names as GE Energy Storage, LG Chem, Parker Hannifin, Johnson Controls, Hitachi Chemical Co., Lockheed Martin Advanced Energy Storage, Mitsubishi Electric Power, Samsung, Sharp, and many others among its members. That’s not to say all is rosy for battery makers. Grid storage is still a nascent market, still struggling to find its way. In 2014, A123 Systems divested itself of its grid storage division. And in 2015, Ambri announced that it had cut a quarter of its staff and had backed off its plans to ship its first commercial grid storage products in 2016. News reports indicated that the company’s engineers were experiencing problems with the battery’s high-temperature seals. Ambri isn’t saying when its first products will finally reach the market. Still, experts are steadfast in their belief that battery storage will eventually be needed for the electrical grid. “When there’s high demand, there can be a mismatch between the production of electricity and the use of electricity,” Chamberlain said. “During those milliseconds, batteries can act as a buffer.” Grid storage proponents see it more optimistically. The batteries are more than a buffer, they say. They’re a key to a new way of life. “Once we’re able to rely on renewable energy sources for our power consumption, the top 50% of the dirtiest power generation resources could retire early,” Tesla Motors said in a prepared statement. “We could have a cleaner, smaller, and more resilient energy grid.”

A hoverboard over water? It is yet another attempt to make the hoverboard dream a reality. Omni has flown farther than any other board, setting the record at 905ft and 2 inches. Watch as he takes the device to a lake where he puts the new prototype to the test for the first time. A reporter from CBC had the chance to see the initial launch first hand. 

Duru, a software engineer, has devoted half of the decade to perfecting his hoverboard design that he calls Omni. His first attempt was literally a piece of wood strapped to an engine and propeller. The current version—refined by his new company, Omni Hoverboards, is made from carbon fiber but still has that DIY vibe: It achieves lift with eight large propellers, powered by 16 lithium-polymer batteries.

However, that was over 3 years ago now. What is Omni Hoverboards up to now? Now, the 31-year-old Duru and his company, Omni Hoverboards, are working on a secret, next-generation version. Just a hoverboard over water, or will it do much more? We will soon find out! 

It is thanks to tier 2 companies like Enser that these fabulous inventors can innovate beyond our wildest imaginations. Enser enables companies on the fronts of design, fabrication and staffing. We also have helped inventions such as the cable vault come to fruition. Take a look at some of our products here!
