The application of Atlas Copco GX air compressor in Buhler Machinery


Known as the world giant in manufacturing grain processing machinery and equipment, Buhler Group entered the Chinese market in 1984, with its line of product covering weighing, packaging and controlling machinery, magnetic extractor and flow balancer.

The Application of Atlas Copco GX Air Compressor in Buhler Machinery
In 1994, Wuxi Buhler Mechanical Manufacturing Co., Ltd was founded. The company made a join investment of 17 million USD together with Wuxi Grain Machinery Co., Ltd in building China’s largest manufacturing base of milling machinery and feed processing machinery, which is also the third largest production center following its counterparts in Switzerland and Germany for Buhler Group. As a key node of the global network of Buhler Group, so far Buhler production center in Wuxi has provided a substantial number of first grade equipment and engineering services for clients around China, Europe, Africa and Southeast Asia.

Buhler Group has long adopted Atlas Copco air compressors for its production center in China for manufacturing food package, grain machinery, grain machinery, port equipment, feed equipment, rice milling equipment, and milling equipment. As the major air supply source, air compressor is used to provide power for pneumatic components, air cylinder and blower of Buhler equipment. Our clients show varied demands for compressed air for different equipment. For instance:

GX 11 FF
Compressed air is mainly for driving air cylinder and pneumatic tools on port machinery. As the space for installation is relatively small, it requires compact GXFF full-performance unit.

As for grain machinery, GAFFELII full-performance unit is the choice for convenient installation with online control. It also provides various options for the best adaptability for different geographic conditions.

For food packaging machinery, compressed air directly makes contact with packaged food. Therefore, the air source is rather demanding and, and GX plus adsorption dryer will be the option.

As for grain machinery and feed processing machinery for export, they require special voltage specifications, different mains frequency and pressure vessel specifications. In addition, the company should provide fast start-up commissioning, technical support and after-sales services in local places to dispel worries of clients.

In addition to satisfying clients’ high demand for air amount, pressure and reliability, Atlas Copco will fulfill clients’ need in terms of heat preservation under low-temperature condition, high-temperature resistance, remote control and optimized multiple integrated control of equipment. Since Buhler is a supplier and start-up and quality-related service provider for global clients, it is also essential to suit clients’ requirements for “safe, convenient, simple and handy” operation of the equipment.

With extensive product portfolio, advanced and reliable technology, stable product quality, and a global service network covering China, Atlas Copco stands out and becomes the long-term exclusive business partner of air compressor for Buhler Group in China.
