Air compressors for the woodworking industry

Energy efficiency and the quality of the compressed air make Mattei's compressors suitable for all stages of woodworking.

How to choose your compressor

Choosing an air compressor must hinge on the specific production and environmental characteristics of this industry.

Compressed air in the woodworking industry

Large carpentry workshops as well as smaller businesses use compressed air throughout the entire woodworking cycle: cutting, drying, finishing activities (such as sandblasting, grinding, painting), sawdust removal, operation of pneumatic tools or large machinery.

Since compressed air is used from raw wood production to polishing and finishing, this sector needs to support its production lines with several woodworking machines with different characteristics: from small compressors that can be easily handled to high power stationary compressors.
To this end, it is necessary to precisely know the demand for compressed air, the profile of use, evaluate the management of the compressor rooms with control devices and identify the proper level of air treatment per ISO 8573.1. In addition, to consider alternative technologies that collectively allow the facility to amortize the best combination that ensures the lowest energy consumption, and maintenance costs for air systems that are often operating under difficult environmental conditions.

Mattei's consultancy service is available to help its customers in choosing the best combination of equipment to support their air demand as economically as possible.



Reduction of operating costs

The continuous use of compressed air involves a significant energy expenditure in addition to that for the necessary maintenance operations of the compressors. It is precisely on the subject of energy efficiency and cost control that Mattei vane compressor technology offers the best solution, standing out for the lowest Life Cycle Cost on the market.

As a matter of fact, the low rotation speed of the air end and the high volumetric efficiency ensure energy savings of more than 15% compared to other rotary compressors.

Moreover, thanks to the use of white metal bushes lubricated with oil that do not wear over time, the maintenance operations only involve oil change and air filter cleaning or replacement and radiator cleaning, allowing the compressors to operate for over 100,000 hours, with no key component replacement and no significant overhaul required.

Woodworking in critical environmental conditions

The most critical issue in the woodworking industry is the contamination of air caused by dust and wood residues, in the face of the need for extremely clean air, especially for processes such as painting. Compressors compress the air they draw in from the environment, so they must be equipped with a high-performance filtering system to avoid affecting the operation of the machine and damaging the finished product.

Mattei faces these critical issues by equipping its compressors with a first-class filtering system that ensures extremely clean compressed air delivery. It also offers a wide range of high efficiency filters able to guarantee 99.99% oil-free air.

The benefits of Mattei compressors for the woodworking industry

Mattei compressors offer quality and performance characteristics suitable for any request for compressed air in the woodworking industry:

  • greater energy efficiency thanks to Vane Technology, energy savings up to 15% and higher are possible compared to other types of rotary compressors
  • compressed air free from impurities thanks to a system that separates the oil from the air in different stages and an efficient filtering system, ideal for critical processes that affect the quality of the finished product
