FROM THE EDITOR
The Only Constant
These are exciting times; these are disruptive times. Particularly in this industry.
The innovative push in manufacturing—that insatiable need for changeand improvement that keeps this industry moving and fuels the world aroundit—has never been flexed more than it has been over the past18 months.
When the world suddenly needed new products—andneeded them delivered faster and in greater quantities thanpreviously imaginable—you delivered. When manufacturersneeded new tools, new equipment, new processes, and newsolutions to fulfill those demands, you delivered—and youdelivered in the height of a labor shortage, in the depths of aglobal health crisis, under pressures that would have brokenany other industry.
But you delivered. And you delivered because this community, more than any other, understands change. The steadymarch of progress, the continuous pursuit of improvement,the never-ending journey toward excellence. Change is theonly constant here; innovation is the only option for survival.
And NED, at its heart, is a brand dedicated to celebrating change, to publishing and promoting every iterative ordisruptive act of innovative genius in all these products andsolutions. It’s the coolest thing.
Over the past nearly 7 years, I have published 80 issues ofNED as chief editor. That’s over 10,000 new tools and equipment printed on my watch— 10,000 individual products designed and produced by hundreds of thousands of inspiredengineers, manufacturers, and dreamers dedicated to pushingtheir industries ahead. All for the united cause of progress,for that constant pressure for change.
So, it’s only natural that things should change here atNED, too.
Eighty issues is a lot for a single chief, particularly for abrand so dedicated to change. And so, the 80th issue will bemy last in this seat.
Tomorrow morning, I will officially start a new positionhere at Endeavor Business Media, leading a change for progressacross a bit wider scope. But I’m leaving here satisfied andconfident in the future of this brand.
We’ve made 20 years’ worth of progress in these past 7 years;we’ve waded deep into our own digital transformation; andwe’ve built a staff of writers, experts, and leaders here readyto push it on to its next exciting chapter.
NED is an amazing brand that serves a truly awesomeindustry and a powerful audience of workers, makers, andbuyers. It’s been a privilege to ride in this seat, an indulgenceto ride in it for so long. But now I, like you, get a new treat—afront row seat to watch the innovations and changes unfoldunder the next watch. It’s going to be great.
So, I guess that’s it. My last column. All that’s left are thethank yous—so, thanks. Thank you for giving me so muchof your time these past 7 years, for your patience throughour sometimes messy changes and experiments, for all yourloyalty and attention. It really has been an honor.
Stay safe out there. And keep those innovations coming.
Industrial, Fail-Safe Casters
feature a load rating of 1,000 lb. per caster
With a maximum load rating of 1,000 lb. per caster,the Endurance Series features the highest-ratedindustrial casters with the same critical dimensions as the industry’s highest-volume productclass. Endurance is also the first and only industrial caster series designed with forged kingpin-lessconstruction and heat-treated raceways in a smallform factor.
The forged steel construction is well-suited forapplications that require 24/7 operation or for applications that are too critical to fail. The seriesfeatures 3 1/2, 4, and 5-in. diameter wheels alongwith a 2 1/2 x 3 5/8 in. mounting plate.
To achieve a higher load rating and durability, Endurance features 2-in. wide wheels and thicker legsand is intentionally designed and over-engineeredfor applications where replacement is cost-prohibi-tive. The series is offered in both single wheel, dualwheel, stainless steel, and high heat versions.
