Optoelectric torque sensors for faster production
Optoelectric torque sensors are designed for faster production and more effective human-machine collaboration.
A new range of optoelectric sensors are designed to provide faster production in the field of collaborative robots. These torque sensors ensure safer and more effective human machine- collaboration. The torque sensors have less than 1 microvolt of noise even in the low torque range. They are suitable for use in real time class 3 control processes due to their two-digit microsecond response time. The sensors can intelligently self-calibrate and measure with an accuracy up to .01 percent. The sensors are able to function in extreme conditions and can be applied to other mechanical and geometric measures, including pressure, angle, and force.

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.
