Vertical lift stages, in 2 sizes, with dc servomotor
Aerotech's MPS-SV series lift stages are offered in two sizes, the MPS50SV and MPS75SV, and feature a DC servomotor as well precision-ground ball screws for accurate geometric performance.
Aerotech's MPS-SV series lift stages are designed to provide elevation motion for applications ranging from laboratory research to production processes. The series is offered in two sizes, the MPS50SV and MPS75SV, and both permit easy assembly of multi-axis configurations using linear, rotary, and lift stages.
The MPS-SV series utilizes a precision-ground ball screw and preloaded crossed-roller bearings for smooth and accurate geometric performance and 0.05 µm miminum incremental motion. The MPS50SV also offers a lead-screw for cost-sensitive applications.
The MPS-SV motor options include a dc servomotor with a rotary encoder and a stepper motor. It also has a precision-machined wedge design and lateral constraint system for high load constraint and lateral motions.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
