Mechatrolink Members Association updates web site
The new web site improves the user experience by simplifying access to product and technical information. Membership upgrade offered.
The Mechatrolink Members Association (MMA) has updated its web site at www.mechatrolink.org to streamline the delivery of information. The new web site has improved graphics and an updated layout, making it easier to use. A new search engine on the product page provides easier access to updated technical and product information.
The site also simplifies the member registration process for equipment companies, systems integrators and individuals. The login process for existing members has also been streamlined.
As part of the new website launch, the MMA is offering a free membership upgrade to new members. Entry Level membership has always been free, but this drive allows companies to join at a higher grade of membership—as a Regular Member—with added benefits. An annual Regular Membership in MMA normally costs $1,500, but until March 31, 2012, it’s free. The free membership is good until March 31, 2013, at which point it can renewed on an annual basis.
The site is available in English, Japanese, Korean, and simplified and traditional Chinese.

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.
