Keyence IM-6000 series image dimension measurement system
Without positioning XY-Stages, instantly measure up to 99 features in seconds and create instant reports with the Keyence IM-6000 series image dimension measurement system.
Keyence calls its new IM Series image dimension measurement system a breakthough in dimension measurement because of size, speed, accuracy, and ease of use. Just place a part, and press the button.
With no need for positioning XY-stages, the system allows instant measure of up to 99 features in seconds, and it creates instant reports.
An all-in-one, compact, space-saving design has the footprint of an 11 x 17-in. piece of paper. It is rigid enough to be installed almost anywhere, including on the factory floor.
Keyence says its IM-6000 series image dimension measurement system:
•Measures the previously unmeasurable;
• Provides sub-pixelmeasurement accuracy;
• Gives instantaneous batch measurements at99 points;
• Eliminates the need for positioning; and
•Replaces projectors and measuring microscopes.

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.
