Automotive

The automotive industry uses vast amounts of compressed air, both in the component production as well as automotive assembly plants.

Welding robots require oil-free air to keep them operating accurately without additional costly service. Shot blasting and surface coating are also processes where large amounts of clean air are needed. Even a drop of oil, silicone or PTFE, which are all present in typical “oil-free” dry screw compressors will destroy the end product quality. Tamturbo’s products do not add anything to the compressed air. Our unit doesn’t contain a single drop of oil, so the chance of oil escaping to the compressed air line is non-existent. Therefore, you can be totally care-free with our Touch-Free compressor.

Typically, the air consumption in the automotive segment is varying, depending on the production cycles and machine operation. There the Tamturbo product is also best-in-class. With a turndown range of even 60% at good efficiency the Tamturbo solution is ideal for this kind of cyclical usage.

The customer is confident, after a year of non-stop operation with virtually zero maintenance cost that this has been a big successful upgrade from other traditional compressors and it supports well their strategy as a high technology company.

Automotive and Aviation industry supplier needs high quality compressed air

Following years of experience with multiple compressor technologies of oil-lubricated and “oil-free” screw compressors and traditional turbo compressors, a High Speed Tamturbo compressor with Permanent Magnet Motor Technology and Active Magnetic Bearings was installed in 2018. In this compressor, integrated on a single shaft, compressor components levitate without any mechanical touch or wear. Tamturbo Touch-Free Technology does not have wearing gears, bearings, oil seals or oil systems. This will offer substantial annual savings compared to older technologies, with absolutely no oil in the system. Also, the condensate water is clean and does not require treatment and there are no oil leaks to repair. The automotive and aviation customer is confident, after a year of non-stop operation with virtually zero maintenance cost that this has been a big successful upgrade from other traditional compressors and it supports well their strategy as a high technology company.
