The latest examples of compressed air and vacuum equipment are highly innovative, using information technology (IT) control systems and internet connectivity to ensure cutting edge efficiency. Automation is also rapidly expanding, particularly in industrial environments, with air cylinders helping to create force and different directions of motion. There are many great opportunities to be involved in exciting innovation.
If air is kept at a pressure that is greater than normal air pressure (atmospheric), it is defined as compressed air. If it is kept at a pressure that is less than normal air pressure, it is defined as a vacuum. Compressed air and vacuums are used in a range of products and services including power tools, cleaning systems, gas generation, and air cylinders that enable automation.
