The influence of PlantEngineering.com on American manufacturing is well-documented. In parts of the world where Plant Engineering magazine isn’t available, PlantEngineering.com is still known as a trusted source of information, and international plant managers from every corner of the planet are using the Website in increasing numbers.

“A review of our online data shows our international Web audience is growing right along with our U.S. audience,” said Plant Engineering editor Bob Vavra. “Web users search for solutions. Plant engineers search for specific help to plant floor problems through keywords in search engines. They find PlantEngineering.com a useful resource to help solve those problems.”

So what in the world are international plant managers searching for? A quick review of Web data reveals these snapshots:

United Arab Emirates : Website visitors have reviewed recent stories on bearings as well as archived items on water hammer and hydraulic fluid and a news item on composite manufacturing.

Thailand : Bearings is also a hot topic, along with harmonics, voltage sage, lubrication and drives.

China : The world’s third largest audience for PlantEngineering.com recently picked up stories on NEMA standards and automation engineering. They have also clicked on Bob Vavra’s blog, Five Fast Things.
