Representatives from Atlas Copco Compressors will be at booth No. E-5566– located in the East Building – to review the capabilities of its 40 to 125 horsepower GA oil-injected screw air compressor range, which features improved components providing unparalleled performance, sustainability, efficiency and reliability. And, for customers whose needs require 100 percent
oil-free air, Atlas Copco will be showcasing the ZT 18 oil-free air compressor, critical for use in sensitive applications.

IMTS 2012 is a bi-annual event that has proven to be one of the largest industrial trade shows in the world, drawing more 1,500 exhibitors who cater their equipment and services to more than 82,000 attendees.

“The drive to embrace technological improvements and innovation is engrained in our philosophies at Atlas Copco, so IMTS is the perfect opportunity to showcase the ways we’ve improved upon our new line of GA air compressors,” said Paul Humphreys, vice president communications and branding for Atlas Copco Compressors, LLC. “And we’re excited to see people express their creative sides with our virtual painting studio as well.”

Show attendees will have an opportunity to design their own compressor at the Atlas Copco booth, just like the online GA virtual painting studio found here. Atlas Copco representatives will also be offering a pricing structure exclusive to IMTS attendees on selected compressor models.
