ETG sets sights on a ‘Better World’

ETG sets sights on a ‘Better World’New Powerstar Amorphous Core Transformers that can be fitted to all ETG machines will slash machine running costs, emissions and improve efficiency

The Engineering Technology Group (ETG) recently signed up to the Betterworld.Solutions initiative, the brainchild of Chris Rea, the founder and CEO of global manufacturer AESSeal plc, which encourages and supports not only its supply chain, but the wider manufacturing industry to implement best practices in the fight against global warming.

ETG is a key supplier of machine tools to AESSeal and the scheme will form part of its ongoing commitment to sustainability and the development of its environmental framework policy. The company has already committed to prioritising sustainability projects within the business, sourcing machine tools that can demonstrate sustainability benefits to end-users and prioritising projects that will support its net-zero ambitions.

As part of this ongoing journey, ETG is taking its commitment to both its supply chain and customers to also support UK manufacturers on their journey to reducing emissions and waste with the benefit of reducing business costs and improving environmental credentials. One example of this is the new Powerstar transformers that ETG has introduced.

The new Powerstar Amorphous Core Transformers, designed and built in the UK, will be available for all machines purchased from ETG and the transformers can drastically reduce machine running costs, emissions and improve efficiency.

Despite the initial cost of Amorphous Core Transformers being slightly higher than conventional transformers, over a 10-year period, they yield an average saving of £25,500 with a CO2 emission reduction of almost 40,000kg. This is because conventional transformers consume their initial purchase cost in wasted energy every nine months.

In comparison, the new Amorphous Core Transformers are significantly more efficient and waste minimal amounts of energy.
