Courtesy: MEAUMitsubishi Electric Automation's M70V CNC Series is designed for standard production machining. It offers high processing speed (up to 33.7K blocks per minute) for fast cycle times and better production output.

In addition to rapid processing speed, key advances of the M70V Series CNC include increased PLC program capacity and memory, an optional vertical or horizontal operator station, and a vertical keyboard. The M70V series offers high-level CNC functionality in a cost-competitive, compact unit. This versatile model is highly accurate and easy to operate.

The series platform also includes two other multi-axis models, both of which support top-level manufacturing. The M700VS is a stand-alone, compact, integrated controller with a built-in display screen for HMI functions, while the M700VW model operates on a Windows platform for PC-based control. Both models feature a high-speed servo network. They each include a menu customization function, pop-up screens and a guidance function.

The series is well-suited for a wide range of applications, including lathes, turning centers, screw machines, grinders, milling machines, boring machines and machining centers.

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.
