Eliminate grounding failures with Lapp Group’s Skintop MS-M Brush, with 360° brush contact design for optimal low resistance screen contact in a cable gland.

Lapp Group's Skintop MS-M Brush has a 360° brush contact design for optimal low resistance screen contact in a cable gland, unlike any other on the market, says LappUSA. With full grounding coverage, the potential for EMI interruptions and equipment failure are eliminated.

The Skintop MS-M Brush is said to offer a quick and reliable alternative to the traditional electromagnetic interference (EMI) "spring" contact cable gland design. The new design features thousands of brush strands in a circular arrangement, which provide a wider and more variable clamping range, making assembly and installation faster and simpler, the company says. The high level of assembly flexibility allows for easy adjustment and rotation of the cable during installation.

Installing the Skintop MS-M Brush cable gland can be completed in a single operation: Insert the cable into the gland, slide the screening braid under the brush, turn to close, and the cable is automatically centered, fixed, strain relieved and sealed up to protection class IP68.

This is the ideal gland for all copper screened cables with large cross sections, the company says. With Metric sizes ranging from M25X1.5 to M110x2.0, the Skintop MS-M Brush accommodates a broad range of cable sizes spanning 0.354 - 3.858 inches (9-98 mm). Larger M75X1.5, M90X1.5 and M110X2.0 sizes feature Lapp's patented dual lamella clamping cage which provides added stability and reliability in handling heavy cables. Skintop MS-M Brush provides optimal low resistance screen contact with maximum adjustment and assembly flexibility.

Annual Salary Survey

After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.

The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
