It is one thing to work with revolutionary products and technologies but it is even more exciting to be part of the challenge to reshape a standard product to create the future of an industry. Westport is the leader in creating breakthrough technologies in natural gas engines, vehicles and fuel system components. Westport imagines, builds, demonstrates and commercializes technologies that provide environmental and economic solutions to customers, while delivering best-class performance and operational characteristics for clean, sustainable and commercially viable transportation.
Westport pioneered high pressure direct injection technology, Westport™ HPDI 1.0, which was a ground-breaking product and great success in opening up the heavy duty natural gas trucking industry. In this film, we look at Westport’s next generation of technologies, including Westport™ HPDI 2.0, advanced spark-ignited natural gas technology, and novel conformable CNG and cryogenic LNG fuel storage technologies.
Westport is committed to giving tomorrow’s visionaries license to explore—by designing the most advanced natural gas engines the world has ever seen. Not just for cars and trucks. But for any vehicle that carries a payload, crosses the water, or thunders down the tracks.

Switch-N-Go’s™ S-Model system is designed to work on medium duty work trucks with room for little or no overhang. Equipping your truck with a Switch-N-Go™ S-Model your truck has all the benefits of the Switch-N-Go™ system with the bonus of no frame overhang which allows for easier towing.
Available in 9’, 10’ and 11’ versions the S-Model has all of the features of the Original Switch-N-Go™ body changing system, plus the added benefit of no frame overhang.

VMAC air compressor systems, including the rotary screw air-end component, are known globally for their performance and reliability. VMAC rotary screw compressor systems are custom built to suit a variety of applications and proven to work in the world’s harshest climates. Here are the top 6 reasons distributors for OEMs, like Caterpillar, Cummins, Ford Industrial Engines, John Deere and Lincoln Electric, use VMAC air-ends as their custom rotary screw air compressor solution.
1. 100% DUTY CYCLE
VMAC manufactures custom OEM rotary screw air compressors that can operate at 100% duty cycle, which means the supply of air is continuous. No time is wasted waiting for air, which allows for operators to complete jobs faster and be more productive than if they were using a reciprocating air compressor designed for just 25% duty cycle.
2. HIGHER OUTPUT THAN RECIPROCATING AIR COMPRESSORS
Rotary screw air compressors offer a steady supply of air flow, resulting in a higher output of air than reciprocating air compressors can produce. VMAC rotary screw air compressors are powerful, and air-end capabilities range from 10-30 CFM, 30-70 CFM, and 70-130 CFM. This makes VMAC the best choice for OEMs with demanding applications.
VMAC air compressors are designed to be compact, with the ability to fit into tight spaces. For many OEMs, space is a major challenge, but VMAC’s compact designs conserve space on any platform, and allow for more room to store other tools and equipment.
In addition to being compact, VMAC compressors (air-ends) are lightweight. The lightweight design makes them ideal for mobile applications, and benefits include improved productivity and fuel economy—your bottom line will thank you.

OEMs will be pleased to know that VMAC’s technical support team is available to help by phone, email, and online on the VMAC Knowledgebase. Should any challenges arise, the talented and experienced support team will be available to answer your questions, and get you back to work faster.
