AC motor brakes
UNIBRAKE AC motor brakes are spring-applied and feature fewer moving parts to reduce downtime for stop/hold applications found in material handling and food processing, among others.
UNIBRAKE AC motor brakes are spring-applied and feature fewer moving parts to reduce downtime for stop/hold applications found in material handling and food processing, among others. The brakes feature an external manual release lever that allows the driven load to be moved without energizing the motor, an enclosed construction that protects against dust and grit and adjustable splined hubs and friction discs that transmit torque from full to 50%. Single-phase ac coils provide fast engagement and release times. The brakes are interchangeable with standard motor brakes.

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.
