Energy Efficiency

Conserving resources thanks to advanced technology

Measures by our machine tools

Even in developing a machine, we look for components and elaborate solutions that make it possible to keep the consumption of expensive resources such as electricity and air in daily use as low as possible. This not only helps to protect the environment, but also minimise the daily running expenses. The most important measures to increase energy efficiency are the following:

energy efficiency
  • Power regenerating drive systems
  • Chip conveyors with interval function
  • Coolant flushing with interval function
  • Automatically deactivating suction system
  • Automatic shut-down of auxiliary programs after the program cycle ends
  • Leaktight valve technology
  • Frequency-regulated coolant high-pressure pumps
  • Weight-optimised moving masses
  • Low-watt valve technology
  • Patented spindle drive concept DDT
  • Consumption-optimised pneumatic system
  • High-quality servo axes
  • Machine lighting with high-efficiency LED lights
  • Use of high-quality components with high efficiency
  • Readjusting hydraulic system (BFR2)

The use of polymer concrete as base material requires around 30% less primary energy than equivalent cast body. And even the CO2 share can be reduced by 66%. The disposal of polymer concrete, too, is uncomplicated, because as regular construction rubble it can be recycled for new filling materials or soil stabilisation.

As a producer of machines with a single production location, a high level of own production and local supplies, we are able to reduce transports to a minimum. At the same time, our machines have a long service life, which adds to the overall positive balance.
