The Series 30i/31i/32i-Model B CNCs by Fanuc FA America can now be monitored through a tablet and allows you to display any CNC screens on any device via the Internet. Courtesy: Fanuc FA AmericaFanuc FA America has introduced an option that allows the Series 30i/31i/32i-Model B CNCs to be monitored remotely using tablet-type devices. This latest advancement in remote monitoring greatly enhances the maintainability and production capabilities of the Fanuc CNC.

The Series 30i/31i/32i-Model B CNC, is now capable of acting as a web server. It allows display of CNC screens on any device on a network. This ability allows maintenance or production personnel on the shop floor to monitor all CNC equipment from across the shop in one location and on one device. 

For advanced smooth and accurate simultaneous 5-axis high-speed machining, Fanuc's 30i-B/31i-B5 CNCs use the High-Speed Smooth TCP with new fairing technology. This reduces cycle times while improving part accuracy and quality. In addition, Fanuc Series 30i-Model B CNCs (this includes 30i-B, 31i-B, 31i-B5, 32i-B & 35i-B) offer a newly enhanced high-speed and large capacity, multi-path PMC offering large scale sequence control with a maximum of 5 concurrent independent ladders. Execution of common instructions is over 2.5 times faster than previous generation, with additional capability of high speed module executing every 1 ms.

Annual Salary Survey

Participate in the 2013 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.
