Granlund Tools AB relies on an ELGi EG Series for energy-efficient compressed air at their plant in Eskilstuna, Sweden
Waterloo, Belgium, 29 October 2020: ELGi Compressors Europe, a subsidiary of ELGi Equipments Limited, one of the world’s leading air compressor manufacturers, is delighted to announce that Granlund Tools AB one of the world’s leading manufacturers of precision tools, relies on an ELGi EG37 VFD (Variable Frequency Drive) screw air compressor to meet their critical, 24/7 compressed air needs for their production.
Granlund Tools AB has specifically selected the ELGi EG Series on account of its:
Higher reliability and peace of mind- The EG Series compressors are designed to perform at extreme temperatures – from cold to hot and from dry to extremely humid conditions.
High Efficiency Airend - ELGi’s airends are equipped with in-house developed η-V profile rotors, with 4/5 lobe combination, designed to run at optimum speeds. This unique design reduces pressure losses and increased efficiencies.
Low Noise Operations – thanks to low operating speeds further improved by the operational Variable Frequency Drive (VFD)
Lower maintenance cost - enhanced life and increased performance due to fewer moving parts at operating speed
Roger Scherberg, Head of Production, of Granlund Tools AB said "Reliability, energy efficiency and low noise were critical decision factors for us in choosing a new air compressor for our production needs. Our 24/7 manufacturing processes require reliable compressed air to operate and create high quality and cost-efficient tool solutions for industries across the globe. The EG37 VFD has met all our expectations since April 2020. The unit, together with its extended warranty and the expertise of the regional ELGi Channel Partner Segelborgs industries service AB, offers peace of mind allowing us to focus on delivering on our customers’ needs.”
With more than 75 years of experience, and representatives in over 30 countries around the world, Granlund provides proven technical solutions including a wide range of high-quality, carbide and high speed steel (HSS) cutting tools, such as counterbores, countersinks, tools with indexable inserts and reamers. Granlund’s products, certified by the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards, are backed by strong local support, while addressing a wide variety of customer demands where high quality and precision is required.
We have significantly improved working conditions on the shop floor for our colleagues, by replacing our old and rather noisy compressor with ELGi’s EG Series. Higher efficiency and lower energy consumption also contributed to lowering our carbon footprint. All in all, a very sound business decision on our part.” concluded
