Driving Sustainable Development: The Rise of All-Electric Injection Molding Machines
ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, June 7, 2023 - As sustainability becomes an increasingly important focus worldwide, industries are seeking innovative solutions to align their operations with the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In the world of injection molding, the shift from hydraulic machines to all-electric molding machines has emerged as a significant contributor to achieving these goals.
All-electric injection molding machines not only address environmental concerns and drive sustainable development practices but offer advantages when it comes to efficiency and performance compared to their hydraulic counterparts.
Advancing Manufacturing Processes
By employing electric servo motors instead of hydraulic systems, all-electric injection molding machines offer enhanced precision, improved cycle times, and reduced maintenance requirements. This technology optimizes production efficiency, promoting sustainable infrastructure development.
For example, Shibaura Machine's SXIII-series all-electric injection molding machines enable manufacturers to embrace cutting-edge technology and enhance their industrial processes sustainably. By fostering technological advancements and promoting reliable manufacturing processes, these machines contribute to SDG 9: Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure.
Precision, Efficiency, and Responsible Production
Responsible consumption and production patterns are also crucial for achieving sustainability. All-electric machines such as the SXIII series are equipped with advanced control systems, allowing for precise and efficient molding processes. The high precision and repeatability of these machines contribute to minimizing material waste, lowering production costs, and supporting SDG 12: Responsible Consumption and Production.
In addition to environmental benefits, all-electric machines also offer significant advantages in terms of maintenance and downtime. The absence of hydraulic oil and its related components, decreases maintenance and downtime, which contributes to increased productivity and support aligning with SDG 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth. Manufacturers can achieve substantial cost savings while reducing their ecological footprint.
Taking Action in Climate Change
Compared to hydraulic machines, all-electric models consume significantly less power during operation, resulting in reduced energy costs and carbon emissions. The energy efficiency promoted by all-electric machines aligns with SDG 7: Affordable and Clean Energy, promoting sustainable energy practices and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
By investing in these machines, manufacturers also contribute to mitigating climate change while aligning with SDG 13: Climate Action. Shibaura Machine's all-electric injection molding equipment exemplifies this commitment to reducing environmental impact through sustainable manufacturing processes.
Advancing Sustainable Manufacturing
Shibaura Machine has played a crucial role in engineering all-electric injection molding technology and implementing it in diverse industrial applications. By embracing these machines, manufacturers can achieve greater efficiency, reduce waste, and actively contribute to a more sustainable future.
