Motion and logic controller family enhanced
Ormec Systems Corp. has enhanced its ServoWire Motion & Logic Controller (SMLC) family.
By Control Engineering Staff
Rochester, NY– Ormec Systems Corp. has enhanced its ServoWire Motion & Logic Controller (SMLC) family to offer four multi-axis models for packaging, material handling, medical, pharmaceutical, and general assembly applications. Available in 3-, 8-, 16- and 24-axis models, the controllers combine thebenefits of both motion control and PLC functions in a single package. With a true real-time operating system powered by Intel 32-bit processors, the SMLC is able to provide cost-effective computing power for demanding multi-axis motion and I/O control applications. The SMLC controllers interface with high-speed drive-based I/O for microsecond position capture, and offer single servo update response to sensor signals. They also provide sub-millisecond programmable limit switch outputs, tightly coupled to the motion control. For general purpose I/O applications, a variety of analog and digitalmodules can be connected. Ormec has been a manufacturer of fully integrated, closed loop motion control systems that combine motion controllers, logic control, drives, servo motors, HMIs and Firewire-based networking in a package since 1982.

2012 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.
