Tamturbo’s roots lie deep in the Tampere region
Since the sixties, Tampere region in Finland has been the birthplace of several air compressor innovations – many of which involved Kimmo Laine, the grand old man of air compressor technology and co-founder of Tamturbo. Together with Jaakko Säiläkivi, a world-renowned guru in high-speed technology, they shared a vision of an oil-free future. For that they founded Tamturbo in 2010.
The future looks bright for Tamturbo’s award-winning turbo compressor technology.
Active Magnetic Bearings (AMB) – history and new beginnings
The concept of Active Magnetic Bearings (AMB) was developed in the 1930’s. One of the first applications it was used in was uranium enriching centrifuges in the 1940’s. The first commercial applications were launched in 1976. Nowadays you can find this technology in Maglev (magnetic levitation) trains, submarines, space shuttles and hundreds of thousands other applications. In this simple technology, controlling plays a crucial role. Tamturbo’s know-how enables using it as a core element of Tamturbo® Touch-Free™ Technology.
The high-speed turbo compressors produce oil-free compressed air, and, uniquely, the entire compressor is fully oil-free. There is no risk of contaminating the compressed air, and the Tamturbo turbo compressor technology makes it possible to give up on oil altogether. Our customers do not need to worry about oil in compressed air contaminating their end products or the air their employees breathe. They can also forget about oil changes, handling oily condensation water or disposing of waste oil.
