3D CAD CD ROM library with automation components
This 3D CAD Model library eliminate the time and labor that would otherwise be required to generate engineering drawings in-house.
The Misumi 3D CAD Model library is now available in CD-ROMformat upon request, free of charge, to machine builders, automation systemdesigners and product design engineers. The library contains native CADdrawings of mechanical components offered in the company's 2009 catalog. The drawingsin the two-CD set eliminate the time and labor that would otherwise be requiredto generate engineering drawings in-house.
The company's online 3D CAD Configurator allows engineers to
download configurable and custom-designed components for their projects. Parts
can be configured to precise tolerances and specifications including critical
dimensions and material/surface treatments. Then the native CAD files of the
components can be download into the assembly model. Once finalized, they can
enter the order using the company's Web Ordering system (with no minimum order
required), and input a part number, which will then become a purchased item and

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.
