How have heat pumps changed to help manufacturers? What innovations can industry professionals expect? Here's a guide to the evolution of heat pumps and how they affect the modern manufacturing landscape
This article delves into how IoT solutions integrated into manufacturing processes can help achieve industrial sustainability.
Regardless of your company's motivation for becoming more environmentally friendly, now is a great time to be building sustainability into your next system design. Here are a few approaches to help meet these goals.
The technology can cut carbon emissions in the four areas where traditional manufacturing cranks out carbon by the metric ton: materials, manufacturing, warehousing, and transportation.
A sound sustainability strategy consists of continuous change, improvement and further development. It requires the continuous commitment of everyone, from management to trainees. And it is made up of many small things.
It's particularly challenging to be too reliant on battery-powered IoT devices in industries like manufacturing and logistics. Many factories now have 24/7 operations, meaning there are no feasible downtime periods for recharging.
With cutting rings, a shearing tool removes the worn edges before they are built back up with 3D printing. Finally, the cutting rings are machined to the final shape.
The next leap forward in sustainability is going to be reclaiming the resources contained within the garbage and providing feedstock back into the manufacturing process.
In today's world, a semiconductor fab's performance isn't only measured by wafer output and yields, but also by how efficiently and sustainably it uses natural resources, and how effectively it minimizes the impacts of manufacturing on its neighborhood.
Study reveals high demand for knowing the origin and sustainability level of materials and automotive parts as well as receiving an end-to-end view of the manufacturing process
In the wake of landmark climate event, COP26, manufacturers are striving to align their activities with the global net zero targets. But the sector has a long way to go. It currently produces more than 16 gigatons of carbon dioxide (CO2) each year.
Circular economy practices that prevent goods from going to landfills - by encouraging reuse or recycling - can help. However, these practices aren't always easy to implement. Brands are experimenting with Industry 4.0 technology that may streamline the circular approach.
While zero-emissions equipment and waste reduction strategies are crucial, sustainability is complex, involving far more factors than construction work itself. The manufacturers that produce building materials must also improve for the industry to become truly sustainable.
This concept of raking in the financial benefits of "being green" without really making an effort to become more sustainable as a company is known as greenwashing.
Supply chains and the climate are more intricately linked than many may realize. Just eight global supply chains are responsible for more than 50% of greenhouse gas emissions.
