Brushless DC compressor with variable flow at pressure output
Thomas Division has designed a compact, high performance brushless DC compressor, for applications with a higher performance to weight ratio requirement.
The brushless DC 2450Z Series compressor from Thomas is designed for medical and other applications requiring a small, lightweight pump (6.8 lb vs 9.5 lb ac motor) with a higher performance to weight ratio. The 2450Z features a small footprint (8.32 in. x 6.75 in. x 4.08 in.) and an efficient variable output brushless 140 V dc motor that conserves power, and energy, by matching the output of the compressor to the application’s requirements. In addition, the 2450 Series is quiet (50 dB(A) @ 20 psi) and features a balanced stroke design and center-line of gravity mounting to minimize vibration and cost of vibration isolation. The oilless 2450 Series is also RoHS compliant and features permanently lubricated bearings, as well as the long-life, proven performance of Thomas’ WOB-L piston technology.
Maximum flow is 3.3 CFM @ 2200RPM. Maximum pressure is 35 PSIG.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
