Precision machining company needs cutting edge compressor


For the Di-Spark Group, it’s all about the details. They are specialized in the production of complex components and deliver those to customers in aerospace, medical, motorsports and other high-stake, scientific industries. Bad workmen blame their tools, smart companies like Di-Spark choose the right tools… Such as an Atlas Copco GA VSD+.


Small components, but crafted with nanometer precision. Only the best is good enough for Di-Spark, that applies to their products as well as to their tools.

Di-spark was founded over 30 years ago and ever since they built an excellent reputation. Their production hall is filled to the brim with state-of-the-art engineering tools, including EDM machines. EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining) is a precision engineering process that uses the thermal energy of sparks to cut through conductive materials, hence the name of the company. They were one of the first companies in the UK to make use of this kind of technology. "Di-Spark always strived to use the latest technologies," explains David Light, Managing Director.

Small components, big customers

Di-Spark’s precision engineered components are usually fairly small, but vital components of bigger machines, such as airplanes, Formula 1 cars, satellites and oil rigs.. Di-Spark’s production runs 24/7, so they needed a compressor that doesn’t mind working through the night… and saving energy while doing so.

Cutting-edge tools

Di-spark wants to stay one step ahead of the competition by combining their know-how with the latest technology. So when Atlas Copco showed Di-spark what the GA VSD+ can do, they wanted to get in on the ground floor. A GA 15 VSD+  now provides Di-spark with reliable, energy-efficient compressed air that mirrors their fluctuating demand perfectly, 24/7. This compact compressor runs so quietly, Di-spark placed it directly on its factory floor. With a machine that offers more Free Air Delivery for only half of the energy, Di-spark is ready for the future. They will stay one step ahead of their competitors thanks to their smart choice for a smart machine.
