Process integration by hybrid multi-tasking machines and automation systems can reduce not only the number of machines but also energy consumption during machining.
Process integration enables reduction of CO₂ emissions
Hybrid multi-tasking machines have been integrated with additive manufacturing technology. Machining processes that previously required multiple machines can now be done in one machine. Additive manufacturing can deposit harder material that eliminates heat treatment process, and can perform grinding process for a substantial reduction in total production time, cost and CO₂ emissions.
Reduce CO₂ emissions by process integration that eliminates workpiece transportation
Multi-tasking machines integrated with gear machining can perform all processes such as turning, milling and gear machining in a single machine. Previously gear production required multiple machines and workpiece transportation between machines. Multi-tasking machines eliminates workpiece transportation and give considerable reduction of CO₂ emissions.
Higher efficiency energy saving by automation system
The PALLETECH automation system integrates different types of machines including horizontal machining centers, simultaneous 5-axis machining centers and multi-tasking machines into one system. Process integration for components machining and automatic operation over extended periods of time can improve the operation rate for even more savings in energy usage.
