VMAC, designer and manufacturer of compact and powerful mobile air compressors and multi-power systems, announced a rebrand of its “Air Innovated” theme as well as two new products this week at the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis.
VMAC says the Air Innovated theme embodies VMAC’s promise to dealers and customers to be the leader in mobile compressed air innovation.
“As one of the only true rotary screw air compressor manufacturers in the world, VMAC has been designing and manufacturing innovative products specifically for the North American work truck industry for over 20 years,” says Gordon Duval, VMAC’s vice president of marketing and sales. “Air Innovated is our brand promise that as our industry changes and advances, VMAC will continue to be hard at work designing and manufacturing innovative products to meet the changing needs of the industry.”
As such, VMAC also released its UNDERHOOD40 air compressor and DTM70-H, the world’s first direct transmission mounted PTO driven air compressor with hydraulics, this week in Indianapolis.
VMAC says the UNDERHOOD40 is built for both trucks and commercial vans. The UNDERHOOD40 offers up to 40 CFM at 100 percent duty cycle, making it the best choice for operators using small- and medium-sized air tools for light-duty applications, and is the only air compressor system specifically engineered for commercial vans.
Finally, the DTM70-H maximizes productivity with up to 70 CFM of air at 100 psi, and up to 14.9 GPM of hydraulic flow at 3265 psi, all at 100% duty cycle. VMAC claims it installs 30 percent faster than competitive hydraulic systems, reducing installation time, complexity and cost. It is lightweight, and results in up to 600 lb. in reduced truck GVW. Additionally, as the DTM70-H is an underdeck PTO driven system, there’s zero footprint on the truck deck. Not only does this provide for a clean looking vehicle, it also creates significantly more space for storing tools and equipment in the back of the truck, VMAC says.
“This new innovative product provides work truck owners and fleets with continuous duty compressed air, and hydraulic power to run a crane or other equipment, all in one complete, compact, and easy to install system,” says Duval.
