Pivot 180 Oscillation Fan
Manufacturing, distribution and service center facilities need cooling air movement over large areas, but may not have the overhead space to accommodate 8 to 24-foot ceiling-mounted HVLS fans.
The Pivot 180 from Big Ass Fans is designed to be installed on a column or other vertical structure. In addition, Pivot 180’s oscillating function allows the air generated to radiate 100 feet outward, enveloping a 180 degree arc from side to side - a coverage area of 12,000 square feet. If more concentrated air movement is required, the oscillating function can be switched offy and the fan aimed in one direction. For even more control, the fan can be easily pivoted up or down for optimal airflow.
Pivot 180 delivers maximum airflow and quiet operation while remaining up and out of the way. An easy-to-use touch pad and dial controller gives customizable comfort with adjustable air speed and the lightweight, low-profile cage provides additional protection for both the fan and occupants, should that be desired.

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.
