Lapp Group's Skintop MS-M Brush cable gland
A 360° brush contact design offers optimal low resistance screen contact in a cable gland, providing full grounding coverage: Lapp Group's Skintop MS-M Brush.
Lapp Group's Skintop MS-M Brush has a 360° brush contact design for optimal low resistance screen contact in a cable gland, unlike any other on the market, says LappUSA. With full grounding coverage, the potential for EMI interruptions and equipment failure are eliminated.
The Skintop MS-M Brush is said to offer a quick and reliable alternative to the traditional electromagnetic interference (EMI) "spring" contact cable gland design. The new design features thousands of brush strands in a circular arrangement, which provide a wider and more variable clamping range, making assembly and installation faster and simpler, the company says. The high level of assembly flexibility allows for easy adjustment and rotation of the cable during installation.
Installing the Skintop MS-M Brush cable gland can be completed in a single operation: Insert the cable into the gland, slide the screening braid under the brush, turn to close, and the cable is automatically centered, fixed, strain relieved and sealed up to protection class IP68.
This is the ideal gland for all copper screened cables with large cross sections, the company says. With Metric sizes ranging from M25X1.5 to M110x2.0, the Skintop MS-M Brush accommodates a broad range of cable sizes spanning 0.354 - 3.858 inches (9-98 mm). Larger M75X1.5, M90X1.5 and M110X2.0 sizes feature Lapp's patented dual lamella clamping cage which provides added stability and reliability in handling heavy cables. Skintop MS-M Brush provides optimal low resistance screen contact with maximum adjustment and assembly flexibility.

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.
