Yellow Jacket is a 105-lb portable fan designed by Big Ass Fans for flexibility, quiet operation, and long-term durability. The heavy-gauge steel carriage is engineered to withstand harsh environments, including run-ins with forklifts. The housing is made from high-density polyethylene with vibration dampening properties. The 3-D progress pitch blades are made from high-performance polyamide nylon to maximize efficiency and airflow coverage. Oversized wheels and an ergonomic handle provide maneuverability, or the fan can be mounted on ceilings, walls, and floors. Airflow amount and direction are controlled with a locking position mechanism that allows for 10 variable speeds.
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.
