Coping With Rising Energy Prices - Can Manufacturers Remain Profitable Against Energy Uncertainty?
There is currently no end in sight for increasing energy costs. Nevertheless, it's an opportunity for manufacturers to reevaluate their current supply chains and internal processes, and embrace more energy efficient production through Industry 4.0.
Variable speed drives: the dark side
According to ABB, the power and automation company, the addition of a VSD can reduce energy consumption by as much as 60 per cent. This means that, if a 90-kW motor in continuous operation is combined with a VSD, financial savings can amass to over Â£9,000 per year.
Creating Energy Resilience in Your Manufacturing Facility
Achieving energy resilience at a manufacturing facility or elsewhere is a two-part process. First, it requires ensuring you have a reliable power supply. Next, an energy-resilient company must have thorough plans for how to respond if a power failure occurs.
Developing Solar Heat for Use in Manufacturing Facilities
Modern solar heat systems incorporate new technology, like smart sensors and other items to improve efficiency. They have found a home in a wide range of industrial facilities - and could help the manufacturing industry reduce emissions created by heating.
What Is a Load Bank and Why Do Manufacturers Need Them?
A load bank can be an important asset in a variety of industries. Load banks are stationary or portable tools that mimic the expected electrical load on a power source in a commercial or industrial setting.
