Trust Automation Contributes to the Success of MacroAir AirVolution-D

Most Powerful and Efficient HVLS Fan on the Market

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif., Oct. 20, 2014 -- Trust Automation, Inc., the world's leading developer of linear servo drives, creator of custom and standard high precision motion, motor control and system design as well as complete power train devices for multiple industries, today announced its successful contribution to MarcoAir's AirVolution-D containing a unique topology compact electric motor capable of handling the consistent torque requirements of a 24-foot diameter industrial fan in a gearless direct drive (D-Drive) system.

The fan delivers 50% greater continuous horsepower than current High-Volume Low-Speed (HVLS) fans on the market. D-Drive eliminates the need for a gearbox, making it 45% lighter and containing fewer moving parts. AirVolution-D is the most reliable, most efficient, lightest, quietest HVLS fan line on the market today (
