ENERGY-EFFICIENT PRECISION LATHES: UP TO 85 % REDUCTION IN STAND-BY POWER CONSUMPTION


Through the conservation of resources during production and saving of energy during everyday operation, WEILER precision lathes are particularly energy efficient. This concept of sustainability accompanies the machine throughout its complete lifecycle – from production through operation to final recycling. All machines are designed to provide easy set-up and maintenance. And the innovative “e-TIM” energy conservation system can, for example, reduce the stand-by power consumption of a large, powerful cycle-controlled lathe by up to 85 percent.

 

“E-TIM“ – INTELLIGENT THREEFOLD ENERGY CONSERVATION SYSTEM

 

“e-TIM“ monitors and controls energy consumption with three functions:


1. The drive management system permanently feeds braking energy back into the power grid.

2. Ancilliary devices that are not required for machining are automatically switched off.

3. When the machine comes to a standstill, the machine changes into the standby mode when a previously defined period has elapsed.

 

 

ENERGY EFFICIENT PRODUCTION AT WEILER: CO2 EMISSION REDUCED BY A THIRD

 

- Energy is produced by a photovoltaic system on the roof of the assembly shop
- The excess heat of a biogas plant is fed into the heating system.
- Since 2005, CO2 emissions during production have been reduced by a third

UP TO 85 % LESS ENERGY NEEDED


A large number of the precision lathes are already equipped with the new energy saving system. The results are extremely impressive: the stand-by power consumption of a large, powerful cycle-controlled lathe was able to be reduced by up to 85 percent.
