The air compressor is the most important part of any modern workshop where air powered tools are used. It provides all the power that you will need in order to ensure that your tools are capable of working at the optimum level, and ensures that your staff are able to get the most out of the equipment that you have invested in.
Choosing the right model for your workshop can make a huge difference to the number and variety of different jobs that you will be able to carry out. Air powered tools are well known for being lighter and more efficient than electrically powered tools thanks to the fact that their power source is entirely external. Users find that they are less tired when using the tools, and are generally able to work for much longer without getting fatigued.
There are so many different types that finding the exact model to meet your needs can be difficult. They come in two main varieties, those that are fixed into position, and those that can be moved around. Depending on your needs, you can choose to either opt for a smaller portable unit that you can move around from one job to another as required, or alternatively, opt for a much larger fixed unit that supplies the various tools through a built in network of pipes.
They can be either gasoline powered, which means that they can stand alone, and provide power at any time without any other infrastructure being in place, or alternatively, choose an electric powered unit that can simply take power from the mains supply, and provide compressed air on demand.
Choosing a gas powered portable air compressor allows you to operate in a completely free manner, taking your tools directly to wherever they are needed in the workshop. You will not need to worry about trailing pipes or cables that you could potentially trip over. Alternatively, a stationary compressor offers a great deal of power, and is able to power multiple tools throughout an installed system. Of course, there are many other uses beyond simply providing power to tools within your workshop, and one of the most common uses of the system is for inflation. If your facility offers wheel repairs and tire replacement, then a compressor is an essential part of the whole process, and will ensure that you are able to get the job done properly.
