The MRC brand self-aligning ball bearings provide solutions for rotating machinery applications where misalignment may occur due to mounting errors or shaft deflection. Designed for high-speed applications that require greater running accuracy, such as fans, blowers and conveyor equipment, the bearings’ self-alignment function features two rows of balls with a common sphere raceway in the outer ring, which provides lower friction and temperature. Available with cylindrical or tapered bores in diameters ranging from 5 to 130 millimeter, users choose between open or sealed types and various cage materials such as polyamide, machined brass or pressed steel.

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.
