Green and sustainable production technologies are taking more and more space on industrial magazines, and for obvious reasons. Taking care of our environment is a responsibility of our generation, and all of us need to do what is in our possibilities, to preserve it for our children.
At the same time, we are all working in a business environment and the question is: how do these technologies influence the bottom line?
It turns out, that innovative technologies for sheet metal production often have a profound positive impact on a company's bottom line and cash flow, for three main reasons.
Saving of raw material
Re-thinking the production cycle with innovative technologies such as the coil fed punching or laser cutting can allow for the production of the same amount of product, with the same quality, AND using up to 16% less raw material.
The same can be said for the manufacturing of rolling shutters, where the savings reach an average 10 to 15% less aluminum and polyurethane, increasing at the same time the productivity and the quality of the final product.
When we save 200.000 Euro per year in raw material, just with one production line, we are actually doing much more than that. In fact, not only we need to purchase less material (steel, stainless steel, aluminum, polyurethane etc.) but also we don't need to dispose of it. Apart from the mere cost of the disposal, we also eliminate all the internal labor connected to the disposal of the process waste material.
