Courtesy: Mitsubishi ElectricMitsubishi Electric Automation's Q170MCPU-EIP motion controller allows end users to operate their existing third-party control systems that incorporate Add-On-Instructions (AOI). Mitsubishi Electric created an AOI library with a set of motion instructions to improve the functionality of third-party design and configuration software. These instructions allow users to quickly and easily upgrade to a Mitsubishi Electric servo system via Ethernet/IP. 

The Q170MCPU-EIP also allows users to create positioning applications within their existing programming environment. The motion controller is ideal for applications where end-user specifications require a third-party PLC and up to eight axes of servo control. Specific applications that are suited for the Q170MCPU-EIP motion controller include filling, case packing, conveyors, and assembly.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
