2200 Series conveyor with Precision Move technology
The 2200 Series conveyor with Precision Move technology now comes with a Common Drive option to power multiple conveyors in a fixed position from a single drive motor. The 2200 Series Precision Move Common Drive option gives customers flexibility in specifying multiple conveyors with different lengths and widths, but operate them as one unit efficiently. The spacing between the conveyors, however, is non adjustable to provide a guaranteed exact location of product movement for those applications such as automation, assembly, robotic, packaging, visual inspection and sortation. The Common Drive is located at the end of the conveyor, and can easily interface with other equipment. The 2200 Series' cog belting provides exact speed match from conveyor to conveyor for precise movement.

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.
