VMAC air compressor systems, including the rotary screw air-end component, are known globally for their performance and reliability. VMAC rotary screw compressor systems are custom built to suit a variety of applications and proven to work in the world’s harshest climates. Here are the top 6 reasons distributors for OEMs, like Caterpillar, Cummins, Ford Industrial Engines, John Deere and Lincoln Electric, use VMAC air-ends as their custom rotary screw air compressor solution.
1. 100% DUTY CYCLE
VMAC manufactures custom OEM rotary screw air compressors that can operate at 100% duty cycle, which means the supply of air is continuous. No time is wasted waiting for air, which allows for operators to complete jobs faster and be more productive than if they were using a reciprocating air compressor designed for just 25% duty cycle.
2. HIGHER OUTPUT THAN RECIPROCATING AIR COMPRESSORS
Rotary screw air compressors offer a steady supply of air flow, resulting in a higher output of air than reciprocating air compressors can produce. VMAC rotary screw air compressors are powerful, and air-end capabilities range from 10-30 CFM, 30-70 CFM, and 70-130 CFM. This makes VMAC the best choice for OEMs with demanding applications.
VMAC air compressors are designed to be compact, with the ability to fit into tight spaces. For many OEMs, space is a major challenge, but VMAC’s compact designs conserve space on any platform, and allow for more room to store other tools and equipment.
In addition to being compact, VMAC compressors (air-ends) are lightweight. The lightweight design makes them ideal for mobile applications, and benefits include improved productivity and fuel economy—your bottom line will thank you.
5. TECHNICAL SUPPORT
OEMs will be pleased to know that VMAC’s technical support team is available to help by phone, email, and online on the VMAC Knowledgebase. Should any challenges arise, the talented and experienced support team will be available to answer your questions, and get you back to work faster.
VMAC rotary screw compressor systems can be designed to your exact specifications, allowing for a completely customizable solution. VMAC’s OEM team will work closely with your design team to ensure your customized air compressor system is exactly what you need for your industrial engine application.
VMAC OEM CUSTOM SOLUTIONS
VMAC custom air compressor solutions provide OEMs with high performing and reliable rotary screw compressors, designed specifically for your unique application. VMAC air compressors (air-ends) produce from 10-130 CFM at 100% duty cycle, and the air compressors are compact, lightweight, and customizable. Each system is backed by a superior technical support team.
Learn more about VMAC OEM, including applications, capabilities, and mounting kits. In addition, you can also browse VMAC air compressor components, including air compressors (air-ends), air oil separator tanks and oil coolers.

The release of this truck to the marketplace in 2015 was a big deal as far as I'm concerned. Whereas in the past, I might have thought, the heavier duty the better just in case you ever need it, I let that go because light duty trucks make great sense in so may ways.
The GMC 1500 (1/2-ton) Box Delete, which isn't a true cab chassis, but you could call it that nonetheless. GM has never had a box off program for 1/2-ton pickups, and now they've taken it to a whole other level by offering this unit.
For general contractors, remodelers, estimators, and a whole lot of other uses could use this truck and enjoy the benefits. Here are just some of the benefits that I see versus the heavier duty 3/4-ton and 1-ton models. One, lower initial cost. Two, lower maintenance costs; such as brakes and tires are smaller and less, and more. Three--and this is a really big deal--it is lower to the ground so it's easier to get in and out of. Four, smaller engine and lighter weight, equals better fuel economy, Five, it looks more like a pickup truck. Six--and this might be the biggest deal--it rides so much smoother than those big trucks do. And, there's more, but those are the big ones that I see.
GM has beefed up the rear axle to help have more capacity and stability too. They didn't just take a 1/2-ton and take the pickup box off. Instead, they gave this some careful thought.
This chassis would be great with a number of different bodies, but we've never really had a 1/2-ton service body combination available before. This one is shown with a Harbor low-pro service body that Harbor has designed specifically for this chassis with some weight saving features.
This unit would be easy to overload, so it is not designed for the riggers of the 3/4-ton heavy duty and 1-ton work loads, but if you only need to carry a few tools, some parts and things and you like a nice ride as well, this combination might be calling your name!
This unit is a GMC that I found at Dow Lewis GMC in Yuba City CA. See them at http://www.dowlewistrucks.com. It is also available for the Chevrolet.
