The Cutting Edge of Manufacturing

Laser cutting stands as a testament to precision and versatility in modern manufacturing, employed across diverse fields from heavy industrial production to the delicate intricacies of art. This process relies heavily on the use of assist gases like compressed air and nitrogen to cut through materials such as steel and aluminum with finesse.

Maintaining Machine Integrity

Compressed air is not only pivotal in the cutting phase but also plays a crucial role in cooling specific components of laser cutting machines. It is instrumental in removing dirt and keeping dust away from the laser head, especially the lenses, which is essential for maintaining the clarity and effectiveness of the laser cut.

Uninterrupted Operation with S1 Compressors

The necessity for a continuous air supply throughout the cutting process is paramount to avoid failures that could result in material scrap or the need for rework. Our S1 100% duty cycle compressors are indispensable in ensuring that the laser cutting operation proceeds without interruption.

Energy Efficiency and Cost-Effectiveness

With our efficient compressors and air treatment products, you can achieve lower power consumption, which significantly impacts the total cost of ownership over the machine's lifetime. This efficiency translates into tangible savings.

Reliability at High Pressure Levels

Given the general pressure requirements of 15 – 30 bar(g) for the laser cutting process, reliability becomes a critical factor. Our high-pressure S1 100% cycle compressor ensures that you will not encounter downtimes, thus protecting your reputation in the market.
