Woodworking surrounds our everyday activities from the house we live in, to the desk we work at, all the way to the bed we sleep in at night.

The development of wood products has evolved into modern uses such as plywood, wood containers, wood flooring, and wooden frames that are part of our daily lives. The production of all these would be more difficult without the involvement of air compressors. In the woodworking industry, compressed air is essential to power the machinery and tools that allow the pneumatic system to run consistently and efficiently. In order to maintain the machines, it’s important to use dependable, high pressure air to move heavy loads and operate spark-free.

Air compressors are integral to the functions within the woodworking industry, here are some specific examples to look at:

  • Sawing: Air compressors power the saw blades in factories and push wood through the machine. This process helps ease the labor-intensive task of shaping and crafting timber.
  • Hoisting: The woodworking industry utilizes the power of compressed air to lift heavy pieces of wood. This improves the rate of construction and transportation of products.
  • Clamping: Devices use pressurized air to hold materials in place during the production process.
  • Pressure treatment: Compressed air helps with the treatment of the wood to ensure the best quality. This process is done through the removal of moisture from lumber in order to preserve the wood and prevent rotting, this especially applies to any wood that might be used for construction in harsher weather conditions.
  • Controls and actuators: Compressors help with the transportation of equipment and products around the factory, assisting workers with the labor of having to move heavy components.
