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

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
