Machine Design and Retrofits Reduce Energy Consumption with Ideal Motor Selection
Keywords: Energy Efficiency, Machinery, Manufacturing.
A session at the recent ARC Advisory Group 2012 World Industry Forum in Orlando, Florida offered insight into the latest technologies and strate-gies employed by manufacturers and other industrial organizations to improve electrical energy efficiency metrics. Manufacturers now look beyond the isolated piece of machinery and, increasingly, apply a holistic approach to save energy.
Holistic energy efficiency strategies evaluate the potential energy savings in the upstream and downstream processes affected by investments in capital equipment. The latest trend is to look at the long-term return on investment (ROI) of machinery based on electrical power consumption, productivity improvements, and impact on infrastructure. This drives manufacturers and machine builders to consider alternative technologies once considered cost prohibitive.
