LED light fixtures
Kickflip LED fixtures from Alumen 8A are made of recycled aluminum and are supported at both ends by rigid, rectangular cantilevered arms attached to the luminaire.
Kickflip LED light fixtures from Alumen 8A are designed for use in building lobbies, corridors, stairwells, and atriums. Kickflip uses a curved slender housing with an extruded clear acrylic lens and several slide-in options. The housing is made of 60% recycled aluminum and is 100% post-use recyclable. It is supported at both ends by rigid, rectangular cantilevered arms attached to the luminaire via connectors. The housing adjusts 180 deg to create direct or indirect upward or downward illumination. LEDs are shielded by the captive, impact-resistant extruded clear lens. The LED boards are replaceable and have built in foot-long increments up to 8 ft per unit.
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.
