December 13, 2010 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
SEW-Eurodrive in Bramalea, Ont., has released a video highlighting the energy savings and CO2 reduction in the modernized line at a major Coca-Cola bottling plant in Vienna.
In the area from the shrink packer to the palletizer, PET bottles from 0.3 to 2 litres fill quantity are processed. A major public utility company has been involved in the conception of the complete renovation project right from the start and provided detailed energy consumption calculations to achieve the best energy efficiency possible for this system. The installed, comprehensive drive technology from SEW-Eurodrive is expected to save an impressive amount of energy and CO2.
Tested and confirmed by Wien Energie GmbH:
• Energy savings of 75 percent in total due to the consistent use of 40 MOVIGEAR units with SNI technology (Single Line Network Installation) and other measures, e.g. automatic shut-down during rest periods.
• CO2 reduction of about 39,000 kg/year
• The SNI technology allows for energy and data transfer in one standard cable, which reduces the number of components and minimizes the installation effort.
