Responsibility for society and environment is an important part of the WaldrichSiegen philosophy. WaldrichSiegen has been pursuing the goal to use energy efficiently and to conserve natural resources for a long time. Now, the company joined the initiative "Blue Competence" of the VDMA (German Engineering Federation). This project has the aim to actively promote sustainable technologies and solutions and to establish reliable standards in the machine and plant construction industry.
WaldrichSiegen fulfills all defined criteria of the initiative: Company-specific requirements, like clearly defined targets concerning environmental issues, as well as the energy balance of the manufactured tool machines.
WaldrichSiegen machines are designed according to the latest standards regarding energy efficiency. Thus, WaldrichSiegen uses energy efficient components and aggregates in all machines, e.g. frequency controlled drives of the chip conveyors. The hydrostatical guideways are manufactured with frequency controlled pumps and optimized regarding pocket geometries, oil gap etc.. Therefore, less cooling is required. The advantages of the machine tools: Shorter warm-up phases of the machines, energy saving standby-concepts as well as the monitoring of the leakages of media and working materials.
