Motor bearing protection ring
The split-ring version of the AEGIS SGR Bearing Protection Ring comes in halves for easy field installation with little or no disassembly of equipment.
The split-ring version of the AEGIS SGR Bearing Protection Ring comes in halves for easy field installation with little or no disassembly of equipment. For VFD-controlled AC and DC motors, it protects bearings from electrical damage caused by circulating or shaft currents by channeling shaft currents to ground. Conductive microfibers in the ring provide the path of least resistance, allowing the shaft currents to discharge to the motor frame. The component is maintenance-free, and the conductive microfibers work with virtually no friction or wear and are unaffected by dirt, grease, or other contaminants.

Annual 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.
