Mechatrolink Members Association updates web site
The new web site improves the user experience by simplifying access to product and technical information. Membership upgrade offered.
The Mechatrolink Members Association (MMA) has updated its web site at www.mechatrolink.org to streamline the delivery of information. The new web site has improved graphics and an updated layout, making it easier to use. A new search engine on the product page provides easier access to updated technical and product information.
The site also simplifies the member registration process for equipment companies, systems integrators and individuals. The login process for existing members has also been streamlined.
As part of the new website launch, the MMA is offering a free membership upgrade to new members. Entry Level membership has always been free, but this drive allows companies to join at a higher grade of membership—as a Regular Member—with added benefits. An annual Regular Membership in MMA normally costs $1,500, but until March 31, 2012, it’s free. The free membership is good until March 31, 2013, at which point it can renewed on an annual basis.
The site is available in English, Japanese, Korean, and simplified and traditional Chinese.

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.
