COMPRESSOR DELIVERS 46% LESS ENERGY CONSUMPTION

10 April, 2024

Birmingham-based Armac Martin, a leader in design-led luxury brass hardware and accessories, relies heavily on compressed air for its CNC machining requirements. However, the company’s existing system was constantly operating at full capacity, leading to unnecessary energy expenditure. By collaborating with FPS Compressors and its preferred local distributor Compressed Air Systems UK - Birmingham, Armac Martin adopted a new system capable of variable compressed air supply. The project led to an impressive 46% reduction in energy consumption compared with the company’s previous compressor.

HISTORIC PUB STRIKES IT LUCKY
