MANSFIELD, Texas, April 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Lincolnshire, IL based Klein Tools, the number one hand tool choice of professional electricians in the United States, is opening its new state-of-the-art heat treating facility today at 10 a.m. at 501 Easy Drive, Mansfield, TX.

Known for its exceptional quality, Klein Tools continues to invest in U.S. manufacturing and is committed to maintaining its place as the favorite among electricians. Klein is the only major tool manufacturer worldwide focused on electrical and utility applications. It offers a full line of electrical tool products, using only the highest quality materials and superior workmanship to deliver the best-performing and longest-lasting hand tools in the industry.

"Since 1857, Klein Tools has been manufacturing tools in America, and it's as important for us to keep that tradition now as it was more than 150 years ago," said Thomas R. Klein, president of Klein Tools. "The opening of our new heat treating facility in Mansfield will help us keep up with product demand, streamline operations to stay competitive and provide American jobs in advanced manufacturing."

Klein Tools has already added a total of 200 jobs in Mansfield with two advanced manufacturing plants through the help of Texas Governor Perry. Klein Tools chose Mansfield in part because of incentives from The Texas Enterprise Fund, which was created to entice businesses to relocate to Texas.

"Texas has created a world-class economic climate based on low taxes, smart regulations and fair courts that gives innovative businesses the opportunity to create jobs and quality, American-made products," said Gov. Rick Perry. "Klein Tools is a valued member of the Texas and Mansfield communities and has created hundreds of jobs for hardworking Texans. We look forward to their continued success with this new facility."

Local officials echo the same sentiments thanking Klein Tools for bringing more manufacturing jobs to their backyards.

"Klein Tools has proven to be a great community partner to Mansfield with the opening of their second plant," said Scott Welmaker, director of economic development for the city of Mansfield. "Klein Tools has continued to find ways to produce and provide quality handcrafted tools that are made right here in Mansfield. It's encouraging to see a company find ways to keep good manufacturing jobs here at home."

Made in the USA, Klein Tools' Journeyman™ Pliers and Klein-Kurve® Wire Strippers/Cutters are designed with quality and durability in mind. The pliers feature custom, US-made tool steel, induction-hardened knives for long life, a precision-hardened head for endurance, a unique handle tempering to absorb the "snap" when cutting wire and a hot-riveted joint to ensure smooth action and no handle wobble. Klein Tools' wire strippers feature a strong gripping serrated nose for easy shaping and pulling of wire, precision ground stripping holes, coil spring for fast self-opening action and double dipped handles for comfort.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
