Best compressors for assembly tools

Assembly tool operation can be costly for your shop, line, factory, or personal use. To maximize cost-effectiveness when using assembly tools, we recommend Kaeser air compressors as the best assembly tool compressor. It can power your facility easily while reducing overall costs.

So why is Kaeser the gold standard when it comes to compressed air systems? We have a few reasons why the big yellow box is best, no matter if your company is small or large.

Sound and vibration reduction

Compressed air systems can be noisy! Kaeser rotary screw compressors have between a 65-75 dB sound level. Typical conversations, for comparison, are around 60 decibels. This compressor quiets noise pollution, which eliminates safety issues and reduces worker’s compensation claims.

In addition, Kaeser’s compressors vibrate less. (In fact, that’s what makes them quieter.) This reduced vibration keeps the compressor in place.


Kaeser compressors have a reduced internal and discharge temperature. That’s important as rotary screw compressors have an internal operating temperature between 170-200 degrees. Discharge temperatures range from 15-25 degrees above ambient air temperature. As a comparison, the piston air compressor’s internal temperatures run between 300-400 degrees with a discharge temperature of 100 degrees above ambient. That’s hot!

This reduced temperature not only makes the area more comfortable but can also keep your compressed air system from overheating.

Increase energy efficiency (cost reductions)

Because the compressors produce less sound, heat, and vibration, they’re much more energy-efficient. That means you’re saving money on energy, too!

Easy on maintenance (cost reductions again)

Lastly, Kaeser compressors are easy to maintain and trusted by industry leaders and are ideal for virtually any environment and job. Kaeser provides some of the best quality and efficiency on the market which makes them the most suitable for assembly plants, auto shops, dealerships, and more.
