A look at our Current Factory Initiatives
What we’re doing
93% of our molding machines are electric, which are 70% more efficient than hydraulic.
Air compressors are controlled using variable speed drives (VSD’s), calculating required air without extra energy.
100% of rain water collected on our 52,000m2 is filtered & reused for cooling machines.
Shipping container volume is calculated & maximised. More items are shipped & our carbon footprint is reduced.
Products are managed by the dexion automated storage & retrieval system, reducing the need for forklifts.
Intelligent quality control ensures only the best products are made. Any rejected parts are re-ground & re-purposed.
