Not just for show – energy efficiency in Ditzingen, Germany
In our showroom in Ditzingen, our consistent use of energy saving modes for our solid-state lasers and automatic shutdown at night and at the weekend means that we save almost 170 tons of CO2.
Geothermal plant in Taicang, China
With the expansion of the TRUMPF plant in Taicang, China, we have installed 170 probes at a depth of 100 metres and a heat pump to utilise the temperature in the ground to heat and cool the building using geothermal energy. This has enabled us to save around 415 tons of CO2 per year.
Business optimisation in Ditzingen, Germany
For the manufacture and development of high-powered laser amplifiers, which are used to produce microchips for the semiconductor industry, we optimise our processes continually, including with regard to energy efficiency. We have been able to save around 207 tons of CO2 by adapting processes and by using an energy-efficient precision cleaning machine. The machine cleans turned and milled components energy-efficiently to remove residues.
Optimisation of the lighting in all buildings in Farmington, USA
We have retrofitted all fluorescent tube lights in the USA, replacing them with high-performance LED lights, further optimising energy consumption. This has saved approx. 100 tons of CO2.
Cogeneration plant in Hettingen, Germany
A cogeneration plant in Hettingen produces the electricity for our production. The waste heat that is produced is used to heat the building. Saving: up to 100 tons CO2 per year.
Switching off machinery in production in Pasching, Austria
It has been possible to reduce the base load requirement of the machines for manufacturing bending tools in Pasching by switching off the machines at the end of the shift and at the weekend. This has saved 93 MWh per year. The Austrian Federal Ministry for Sustainability and Tourism has awarded TRUMPF Austria the Active Climate Award for this, for successful climate action measures.
Adaptation of the painting process Liberec, Czech Republic
Changes to the painting process means that the paint requires less heat to dry than previously. This reduces gas consumption, saving 50 tons of CO2 per year.
Conversion of lighting in Freiburg, Germany
In Freiburg in the business year 2018/19, all lighting was converted to LED. This saves 180 tons of CO2 per year.
