Faster wiring video now playing on CEtv
A 3-minute video shows how system integration and machine assembly go faster with modular components.
Oak Brook, IL – System integration and machine assembly can go a whole lot faster with modular components. One example is shown in a recently posted video, “Wiring system speeds machine building,” at the Control Engineering video area, CEtv
Control Engineering video area, CEtv.
The video shows how an assembler saves about 45 minutes using Allen-Bradley Bulletin 1492 PLC Wiring System from Rockwell Automation. The installation takes approximately one minute. The left video shows an assembler installing the same wiring by utilizing traditional terminal block connection methods, which takes approximately forty-six minutes.

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.
