Before you buy, you'll need a few things.

Compressed Air Supply Source (Compressor)

Compressed air is necessary for this machine. You also need to prepare an air hose to connect the compressor with the regulator.

Make sure to get a compressor that meets the following conditions:

  • Control Pressure: 0.18 to 0.3 MPa*
  • Air Capacity: 39 L/min or more (per machine)
  • Tank Capacity: 33 L or more (per machine)
  • Oil-Free Type: (To prevent contamination of the compressed air by foreign material.)
  • Dryer-Equipped: (To prevent moist air that can cause rust.)
  • Air Hose: (1) connects the compressor to the regulator.

  The air hose must meet the following conditions:

  • Hose outer diameter: 6 mm (polyurethane resin tube)
