Integrated motor, actuator
The integrated design of this integrated servo motor/rod-style actuator provides high dynamic performance by eliminating the need for separate motors, couplers, motor mounts, gearing and belts.
The integrated-motor actuator (IMA) combines a servo motor
with a rod style actuator. The integrated design provides high dynamic
performance by eliminating the need for separate motors, couplers, motor
mounts, gearing and belts. The result is reduced component costs, assembly time
and failure points. The actuator provides up to 2,000 of force along with a
speed of 23 inches per second and positional accuracy of +/- 0.00984 inches. It
can be ordered in any incremental stroke length from 6 inches to 18 inches.
The actuator is available with multiple ball screw leads,
and a choice of motor winding voltages. The screw lubrication system allows for
easy re-lubrication without disassembly for extremely long service life. The
integrated motor actuator is a viable alternative for replacing pneumatic or
hydraulic cylinders in applications such as pressing, clamping, valve control,
spot welding and volumetric filling.

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.
