Energy efficiency and PEPS®
Energy costs rise and greatly affect total production costs. In many industries, machine tools often account for the heaviest energy consumption. Due to EU product guidelines and regulations, sustainability and efficiency are critical factors for both manufacturers and customers.
To be able to offer future-orientated manufacturing solutions, the (further) development of energy and resource-efficient products, technologies and processes is vital.
STAMA has implemented innovative ideas for more efficient energy usage: A retrofitting with frequency controlled KSS pumps achieves a good 80% energy saving, the use of 4-spindle technology a good 60%.
More output per footprint is the objective of the PEPS® concept. A "capacity investment" calculation does not always provide realistic key figures for the productivity and unit costs of a process solution. Space requirements also have an effect on unit costs; buildings do not add value but incur costs. Only multiple-spindle machining enables sustainable manufacturing: Less space requirement than two single-spindle centers, 40% less energy costs – this has a positive effect on the environment and overall cost effectiveness.
