High accuracy multipole strip magnet for linear position measurement
Dexter Magnetic Technologies Inc. has announced a new line of multipole strip magnets for use with the austriamicrosystems line of high resolution linear Hall encoders.
Dexter Magnetic Technologies Inc. has announced a new line of multipole strip magnets for use with the austriamicrosystems line of high resolution linear Hall encoders. The multipole magnet, manufactured from a flexible ferrite, is produced through a repeatable proprietary method which yields accuracy within 2.0% of the pole pair (40 µm for 1.0 mm pole).
The cumulative pole accuracy is within 1.0% per 10 mm. A major benefit of this new technology is that Dexter can offer multiple customer defined strip configurations, including industry standard pole spacing of 1.0 mm, 1.2 mm or 2.0 mm, custom magnet lengths and pressure sensitive adhesive backing, while retaining the high level of accuracy.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
