Advantage through
product design

The VERTICUS and MINI-VERTICUS compressor features a revised design with multiple filling devices in order to enhance usability and safety for users along with lasting durability. The redesign needed to bring a new and premium look to the VERTICUS product family compressors.

User-friendly design

With careful consideration to detail and to ruggedness, the design needed to be easily handled by users, be cost effective and must also be suitable for use in industrial environment. The design also needed to enhance clear competitive advantage and create distinction from BAUER’s competitors.

Easy maintenance

The final design resulted in a silent machine built with modular elements that separates vital components within the machine. Keeping the user in mind, filling devices were placed at the front of the machine for accessible reach, notifications are given when condensate needs to be emptied and operating elements are easily reachable and provide easy access to parts in case of service.

Our approach


Production methods have also been taken into consideration in that the design allows elements to be produced efficiently and numerously without complication, thus reducing costs.


The design should symbolize a premium product and be cost competitive in regard to materials and construction. Ergonomics was also key for improved usability.


Through the use of durable materials, these machines can withstand abrasive environments. Additionally, the purification systems are now placed in the compressors cold area, extending filter cartridge life.

Working safely

The modern design of the compressor places BAUER in a leadership position within the compressor market, providing users with an easy to use, ergonomic and safe solution when working with high pressure cylinders. When unsafe conditions, e.g. temperature too high are recognized, the machine automatically shuts itself down to ensure safety of those nearby.
