Atlas Copco oil-free equipment and quality service support growing graphic arts company
Wilrijk, Belgium, December 2013. Lidergraf, a successful Portuguese graphic arts company, uses Atlas Copco compressed air, blower and vacuum solutions to meet its demand for 100 percent oil-free, high-quality air to ensure the quality of its products.
Increased capacity, increased demands
Today, with the construction of a new building and the acquisition of a second rotary machine, Lidergraf is able to operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week. However, the company also has had to increase the compressed air, vacuum and blower capacity to meet production demands.
Lidergraf chose Atlas Copco to provide 100 percent oil-free compressed air and blowers to ensure the high quality of their printed products.
Main target achieved: zero risks
The ZT 132 VSD FF compressor and the ZS 55+ VSD oil-free screw blower both feature variable speed drive (VSD) technology. VSD technology adjusts the motor speed to the air demand automatically, achieving substantial energy savings of 35 % on average. In addition, VSD dramatically reduces the energy requirements in the overall production process.
An excellent partnership
Lidergraf also has a full liability maintenance contract for the ZT 132 VSD FF and calls on Atlas Copco’s trained technicians to maintain the other equipment. Crespo indicates he would recommend Atlas Copco products and services without hesitation. “As the constant production of high-quality compressed air is very important for our production, the partnership with Atlas Copo proves to be excellent.”
