Plastics Industry

The applications of pneumatic compressors are highly diverse in the plastics industry. Compressed air is used, for example, in air supply pipes, or as control and process air for cutting and welding equipment; it’s also used when blowing out workpieces from production moulds and for finishing moulds. Depending on the application, the quality requirements for the compressed air are different.
