Lapp Group's Skintop MS-M Brush cable gland
A 360° brush contact design offers optimal low resistance screen contact in a cable gland, providing full grounding coverage: Lapp Group's Skintop MS-M Brush.
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.

2012 Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
