Woodworking surrounds our everyday lives, from the house we live in, to the desk we work at, to the bed we sleep in at night.
The development of wood products has evolved into modern applications such as plywood, wooden containers, wooden flooring and wooden frames that are part of our daily lives. The manufacture of all these products would be more difficult without the use of air compressors. In the woodworking industry, compressed air is essential to power the machines and tools that allow the pneumatic system to run smoothly and efficiently. To maintain the machines, it is important to use reliable high-pressure air to move heavy loads and operate spark-free.
Air compressors are an essential part of the functions in the woodworking industry, here are some specific examples:
- Sawing: Air compressors drive the saw blades in factories and push wood through the machine. This process facilitates the labour-intensive task of shaping and machining wood.
- Lifting: The woodworking industry uses the power of compressed air to lift heavy pieces of wood. This improves the speed of construction and transportation of products.
- Clamping: Equipment uses compressed air to hold materials in place during the production process.
- Pressure treatment: Compressed air helps to treat the wood to ensure the best quality. This process is done by removing moisture from the wood to preserve the wood and prevent rot, this is especially true for any wood that could be used for construction in harsher weather conditions.
- Controls and actuators: Compressors help transport equipment and products around the factory and take the hassle out of moving heavy components for workers.
