After reading Senior Editor Matt Jaster’s article this issue (“Advancing Technology for MRO,” p. 18), I have visions of the maintenance engineer of tomorrow. He’s not wearing a hard hat and steel-toe boots. No, he’s wearing ripped jeans and a ball cap (backwards), and he’s holding a game controller, because he’s operating the drone system your company is using to do visual and thermal inspection of your equipment, saving you enormous time and effort in your predictive maintenance routine.
As I read through this issue of Power Transmission Engineering, I’m reminded of exactly how much hard work goes into producing this publication eight times per year. I thought it would be a great idea for you to get to know a little bit more about the team whose work, too often, goes unrecognized.
