Optical rotary torque sensors
The TorqSense ORT 230/240 Series of optical rotary torque sensors are designed for low torque and high bandwidth applications with a rotary and static torque measurement up to 100Nm and bandwidth up to 50kHz.
The TorqSense ORT 230/240 Series of optical rotary torque transducers are designed for low torque and/or high bandwidth applications while providing precise measurement of rotary and static torque up to 100Nm and with a bandwidth of up to 50kHz. The optical operating principle creates excellent noise immunity while the low inertia design increases the device's high speed capability. Features of both devices include self-diagnostics to report if the transducer's torque, speed ratings, or calibration date have been exceeded while built-in sensors monitor shaft temperature for better compensation and accuracy. The devices also include an advanced torque monitoring package for Windows PC's to assist with data display and recording. Other applications for these torque sensors include: food and chemical mixing, engine and turbine power measurements, screw and assembly machine logging, and other quality control during manufacturing.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
