MXB-P belt-driven linear actuators feature a profiled rail guidance system that facilitates large moment loads, high-speed operation and precision.
MXB-P belt-driven linear actuators feature a profiled rail guidance system that facilitates large moment loads, high-speed operation and precision. With a carriage that employs THK Caged Ball bearings, the actuators are capable of velocities of up to 150 inches/second. They’re suitable for multi-axis applications such as test stations, product handling, laser marking and material cutting, among others, particularly those that require high linear velocities and accelerations, long stroke lengths and high duty cycles.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
