Video addresses common motion, I/O problems
Galil Motion Control debuts 2-minute videos for busy engineers seeking technical solutions.
Solutions to common motion control and I/O problems are addressed in new two-minute videos from Galil Motion Control. Designed for busy engineers, the videos are a technical resource to help engineers get a quick start on motion projects. "We added this technical resource to our Website to offer relevant solutions in a format that can be quickly accessed and easily viewed," says Lisa Wade, vice president of sales and marketing at Galil.
Currently available videos show how to achieve smooth multi-axis motion through arbitrary points; demonstrate how to achieve precise temperature of a liquid; introduce the RIO Pocket PLC; and present commonly-used features of Galil's Accelera Series motion controllers.
Galil plans to add videos frequently to build a library of solutions. Future videos will show how specific motion problems can be solved, and provide additional how-to explanations and demonstrations.
Founded in 1983, Galil was reportedly the first company to produce a microprocessor-based servo motor controller without tachometer feedback. Since then, more than 500,000 Galil controllers have been installed.
The videos are available online for no charge.

2012 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.
