UPM recently installed a new @KaeserUSA 75 horsepower direct drive air compressor to replace an aging air compressor. “The new compressor is much more energy efficient and allows us to maintain our volume and pressure using less electricity”, said Walter Pipan, UPM’s Plant Engineering Manager.
“Plastic injection molding businesses are always looking for ways to reduce costs to remain competitive in the marketplace”, remarked Steve Dowling, UPM’s VP of Operations. The new compressor will work in parallel with UPM’s secondary air compressor to ensure redundant air supply to its injection molding machines, molds, and automation.
UPM’s 100,000 square foot facility and large tonnage injection molding machines require a reliable and good quality compressed air system. This is just one way UPM reinforces the core value of “Operational Excellence”. UPM strives to be disciplined in everything, remove waste, and correct problems quickly to allow its customers to receive the highest quality products on-time.
