Miniature length sensors
ZMD miniature length sensor series features spring-loaded torsion that allows it to be mounted in almost any orientation and can operate at any surface at speeds up to 3000 ft per min.
The ZMD series of miniature length sensors feature a built-in spring-loaded torsion arm that provides a simple-to-adjust torsion load, allowing the unit to be mounted in almost any orientation, including upside-down. Using a 6 in. circumference wheel, the ZMD can be used on almost any surface, while operating at speeds up to 3000 ft per min. The housing is durable, conductive composite material that will eliminate static build up which makes this product ideal for light- to medium-duty sensing applications.
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.
