Mattei North America chose the SEMA Show to introduce automotive enthusiasts to the newest and most advanced rotary air compressor in the industry.

BLADE Series is a belt-driven first for Mattei, the largest manufacturer of high performance rotary vane air compressors in the world, so it was fitting that it be introduced at the biggest trade-only automotive show in the USA, the SEMA Show.

BLADE was showcased in booth 16007 in the new members area of the Tools & Equipment section located in the North Hall which focused on Collision and Repair. The Mattei booth was packed even before the show got underway and remained that way for days as people ventured over to check out the 10 HP BLADE 7 prototype that was running at full capacity for the duration of the show.

Visitors were all smiles with comments such as, "WOW that thing is quiet" and "How soon can I get one?" Confirmed what we already knew, BLADE is a game changer for what had previously been offered in the compressor business.

Featuring Mattei’s unrivaled rotary VANE technology with blades designed for 100,000 hours of operation, and an airend warranted for 5 years, BLADE just may be the last air compressor you’ll ever need to buy. Super slow running with speeds from 1,050 rpm (or 25% that of a typical screw) and operating pressures to 175 psi, BLADE is the ideal solution for small body shops, mechanical shops, and small to medium sized manufacturers.

BLADE vane technology is quiet and highly efficient as it delivers more compressed air for less energy dollars. Forget about those noisy piston compressors, and compared to rotary screw compressors, Mattei airends rotate significantly slower and those blades slide frictionless on a thin film of oil which ensures complete reliability. Mattei air compressors also have fewer moving parts than those other compressors and as the rotor runs on bushes, it has a virtually unlimited life span.

So, when can you order a BLADE? Anytime you want. Shipments will begin in January.

Get your last air compressor first. Get a Mattei.
