VMAC puts the “Air” in Lincoln Electric’s Air Vantage® for 20 years

10/4/21

Lincoln Electric’s Air Vantage® system is a critical piece of equipment for many operators in tough terrain, offering a welder, generator and air compressor. But the Air Vantage wouldn’t exist without VMAC, a mobile air manufacturer that provides compact yet powerful air compressor technology.

“Lincoln Electric and VMAC have successfully worked together for the past 20 years,” said Nicholas Winarski, Lincoln Electric’s Product Manager - Industrial Engine Drives. “VMAC is our top choice air compressor manufacturer for our Air Vantage models due to their high-quality air compressors and dedicated engineering support.”

The first Air Vantage model, the “Air Vantage 500,” was launched in early 2004. It included VMAC’s S700033 spline drive rotary screw air compressor, and it was the only welder generator air compressor of its kind at the time.

The Air Vantage 500 was an undeniable success, but only the start of Lincoln Electric and VMAC’s partnership. VMAC redesigned and adjusted its air compressor for the Air Vantage product line several times over the course of their relationship.

“VMAC has developed five complete air compressor systems for Lincoln Electric over the past two decades,” said Rick Duifhuis, OEM Division Manager at VMAC. “Our team is always willing to do what it takes to serve our partners and ensure they have the air power they need to succeed.”

“VMAC and Lincoln Electric have seen great success with our collaborations, which have resulted in several powerful systems. We are proud of our 20-year relationship and hope to continue to work with Lincoln Electric in the decades that follow,” said Duifhuis.
