Two new remachineable shaft collar kits let users create custom bore sizes. The kits feature eight sizes of either one- or two-piece fully assembled steel collars per kit, and each has a pilot hole that can be machined by the user to match bore requirements. They include sizes ranging from 11/8- to 3-inch O.D., each with a 0.235-inch pilot hole for the bore. Suited for prototyping and repairs, applications include new machinery and fabricating custom sizes to match worn or replacement shafts.

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.
