Hi guys, I'm back with another question for the Bystronic heads! Since this is my first laser, it's been a learning process. My question is: what would you guys recommend as a reasonable compressor that comes with a dryer for this laser? I've been looking at some Kaeser models but am not sure what the SCFM and PSI requirements really are for this machine? Our installation tech, who is not here yet, suggested that we need at least a 10HP compressor with a dryer...and we currently have a 7.5HP/80-gal. Ingersoll-Rand that can provide 27.2SCFM @ 90PSI or 25.1SCFM @ 175PSI....will this do as long as we add a compressor to it? Since we are a small shop, we do not intend to use any other air tools while using the laser. Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated! Even eBay links to some suggested compressors and/or dryers would help. Thank you.
