Air compressors are a vital component that provide safe and efficient energy to applications in manufacturing.
Energy is the foundation of manufacturing. Without energy in some form, industrial robots and equipment wouldn’t be able to function and produce the materials we need.
A common form of energy used in manufacturing is air. With air compressors, manufacturers can supply their production lines with energy and continue running operations as normal.

Sullivan Palatek SP20-125VFD Air Compressor
What is an air compressor?
An air compressor is a machine that uses a motor or engine to convert power into pressurized air, which acts as potential energy.
Air is sent into a storage tank. The pressure inside the tank increases as more air is pushed into the tank and once the pressure limit is reached, the air compressor turns off. The compressed air is then stored for later use.
What are air compressors used for?
Compressed air can be used for many applications in manufacturing, including:
- Tool powering
- Injection molding
With an air compressor, manufacturers receive a continuous supply of dependable and clean pressurized air to use for their daily production needs. Air is considered the “fourth utility,” like water, electricity, and gas, since it is essential to manufacturing operations.
Over 70 percent of all manufacturers use compressed air systems to operate their production lines. Manufacturing industries that commonly use air compressors are:
- Heavy goods
- Tier-1 suppliers
- Consumer goods
A consistent supply of compressed air allows manufacturers of any industry to complete the necessary tasks to produce materials and goods.
Benefits of an Air Compressor in Manufacturing
Plus, they improve the efficiency of operations by sending more power into your tools than other generators.
Air compressors are also beneficial because they are safer and easier to use compared to other energy sources, such as electricity. Additionally, they can function in environments with high temperatures, and the air is controlled on-site.
