All industries face the same major challenges: how to reduce energy use while maintaining product quality and improving productivity. Energy costs are rising and governments are imposing legislations to force industries to reduce energy usage and greenhouse gas emissions.
ABB has a wide range of technologies that help reduce energy consumption and improve productivity
. Variable speed drives and electric motors are such examples. Together the drive and motor controls the speed and torque of motor-driven applications so that they only run at the optimum speed for the process thus saving energy and enhancing productivity, often with a beneficial impact on the end product quality.
