Courtesy: SICKSick's deTec4 Core safety light curtain is designed for hazardous point protection and single-sided access protection, which allows for quick and easy machine integration.

The deTec4 Core is a guard-only safety light curtain that offers QuickFix and FlexFix brackets, which can be positioned in any location on the housing without causing blind zones. With a unique built-in automatic range detection of 10 m, the deTec4 Core is able to automatically determine the distance to the sender, which eliminates any manual setup of the sensing distance. In addition, integrated LEDs and diagnostic functions save time and reduce costs during installation and alignment.

The deTec4 Core offers a rugged IP67-rated industrial design and an operating temperature down to -30 C, making it suitable for low-pressure wash down and cold storage applications. The deTec4 Core is available in heights from 300 mm to 2100 mm with 14 and 30 mm resolutions. The deTec4 Core can be used in machine building, consumer goods, and storage and conveyor applications.

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.
