To produce a high-quality vehicle, you need high-quality equipment. Whether it is spraying cars with paint or assembling them with air tools, the automotive industry relies on compressors to provide a high-quality finish.

Contaminants in the air supply can result in costly product spoilage, expensive re-work and loss of valuable production.

Our compressors deliver uncompromising performance and reliability, while providing the right balance of air quality with a low cost of operation.

Typical uses of compressed air in the automotive industry include:

  • Tyre inflation
  • Product finishing — to vaporise and propel paint onto car components and shells
  • Air operated robots
  • Plasma cutting and welding — to assist with cutting and welding speed and reliability
  • Air tools — preferred to electronic tools as they are light and easy to handle
  • Paint shop applications — to operate paint pumps in highly volatile environments
  • Breathing air — filtration is used to provide breathing air quality
