Automated Directional Fan
Big Ass Solutions (Lexington, KY) has announced its latest innovation, AirEye.
The first fan of its kind to detect motion and shut off automatically, AirEye is the
quietest, longest-lasting, easiest-to-clean, highest efficiency personal cooler ever
made. AirEye improves upon every traditional directional fan shortcoming: its
motion sensor ensures it only operates when workers are present, saving energy; it moves up to 48 percent more air
than other fans, enough to create a breeze a third of a football field away; patented airfoils produce less noise than
any competitor, even at full speed; its 7-year, full warranty is more than twice as long as the industry average; its
electronically commutated motor operates 50 percent more efficiently than typical directional fans. AirEye is available
with a variety of mounts, including I-beam, C-channel, wall, swivel and portable pedestal. Its IP65 rating means that
washing AirEye is as simple as hosing it down. And with its easy-to-remove cage and components, cleaning tough-to-reach dust and dirt buildup is easy. AirEye comes in 20-, 24- and 30-inch diameters.

Easy Flex Couplings Donating $1
Of Each Sold Pink Insert To Breast
Each one of us has been
touched directly or
indirectly by breast cancer.
As president of Easy Flex
Couplings (Lakeland, FL),
Fred Louwersheimer decided
to take the company’s orange
insert and make it in pink.
Now, when Easy Flex Couplings
>> www.goflexcouplings.com; 863-937-9274 >>
sells a pink insert, a dollar
from the sale will be donated
to research to help find the cure for breast cancer. The
company will run the program indefinitely. The GO-FLEX
coupling is one of the easiest and least expensive couplings
to install, maintain and repair. A complete coupling consists
of two hubs, available in carbon or stainless steel, a urethane
split insert (choose from 5 types) and a cover — either a slide
over cover held in by a snap ring or a horizontally split cover
for extreme torque applications. Once you have correctly
selected and properly installed a GO-FLEX coupling, the split
insert is all you should have to replace.
Polyethylene Carry Case For SST
Drill Bit Sets
recently launched their
shock-resistant, extra-thick polyethylene
carrying case for their Super Speed Tip (SSTTM)
drill bits. Optimized from the celebrated original
Walter metal index containers, the new highly visible
orange polyethylene case offers increased durability
and improved drill bit storage. The bright orange
polyethylene case withstands extreme temperature
variations and eliminates corrosion. The use of
polyethylene has added malleability to the carrying
case, which ensures the drill bits stay seated if dropped.
Designed to protect bits from water, rust, oil, grease and
other contaminants, this durable solution is available in
both rectangular and round cases. Equipped with a belt
clip, the round case can be easily hooked into a belt loop
and thus allows users to have drill bits easily and readily
available when working outside or on a job site.

Weiler Expands Tiger BobCat Mini Flap Disc Offering
Weiler Abrasives Group (Cresco, PA) has expanded its Tiger BobCat mini flap disc
offering, along with design improvements to enhance performance and extend
product life. The enhanced design of the Tiger BobCat mini flap discs offers one
and a half times greater life compared to the original flap discs, lowering the total
cost of use. Tiger BobCat mini flap discs are ideal for grinding and finishing jobs in
hard-to-reach areas, and for weld blending or edge chamfering in metal fabrication.
When the application calls for aggressive grinding, these flap discs are designed
to shed cloth and expose new grain, delivering a consistent, aggressive cut rate.
They remove three times more material over the life of the disc than a comparable
blending disc, and operate best on steel, stainless steel, structural steel and cast iron.
