Modules for accumulation conveyors
ZoneFlex improves material handling efficiency and features clip-in mounting, switch configuration, and LED diagnostics
ZoneFlex modules enable easy selection of multiple pre-installed accumulation and release modes to improve material handling efficiency and allow for superior carton control, gentle product handling and increased conveyable cartons. Clip-in mounting, simple switch configuration and LED diagnostics allow operators to quickly replace, modify and monitor zone controllers, simplifying maintenance and increasing system flexibility. ZoneFlex creates high-density accumulation, while its multiple release modes enable high-capacity throughput. ZoneFlex is also designed to move previously accumulated product downstream quickly by monitoring and automatically responding to accumulation conditions. This simplifies control logic and increases available product for downstream applications.

Annual 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.
