Atlas Copco’s European OriginAir Center has been officially opened in Belgium. The aim is to provide a single, centralised competence centre for the refurbishment of air compressors, dryers and boosters in Europe.
With an area of 2200 m², the centre provides all the repair facilities required to return machines to their original condition, and also to add product options that adapt the machines to the needs of the customer. A team of specialised technicians makes sure that all refurbished machines are fully inspected, maintained, repaired and tested according to the same standards as new machines. The workshop area has the capacity to refurbish 20 units/month.
The testing facility can test up to three machines simultaneously. Each machine is inspected on more than 50 points and all data is recorded for traceability. The stocking area allows storage of up to 130 units – machines ready for shipment as well as machines bought back from customers. Specific stocking procedures are followed to ensure maximum protection of machines during storage time.
Further information about the refurbishment of air compressors, dryers and boosters, plus all used Atlas Copco equipment can be seen at www.atlascopco.com/originair. In just one click, customers can see the status of their machine and request more information from a dedicated sales person. The website also provides information about the buy-back programme and services that Atlas Copco offers on OriginAir machines.
