With the increasing demand for environmental protection in the “Golden Mountain and Silver Mountain, Green Water Mountain”, the manufacturing industry is indispensable for the transition to green manufacturing, and the machine tool industry is no exception. Since last year, the incidents of several machine tool companies accidentally crossing the environmental protection bottom line have also reminded us that environmental protection must not only be focused on but also act. So, how can machine tool companies achieve green manufacturing?
To achieve green manufacturing, machine tool enterprises need to start from both production and product, namely green manufacturing and green manufacturing of products. The green manufacturing of production (hereinafter referred to as “green production” refers to energy saving and emission reduction, environmental protection and high efficiency in the whole production process, meeting the relevant requirements of national environmental protection standards and the goal of improving quality and efficiency. The green manufacturing of products (hereinafter referred to as: green products) means that the products produced meet the environmental protection processing standards and can help downstream enterprises achieve green manufacturing.
In order to achieve green production of machine tools, the following aspects are very important.
First, set standards and follow the rules. It is not difficult to see from several environmental incidents that many enterprises have little knowledge of environmental protection regulations. Naturally, there are enterprises themselves, but they cannot ignore the fact that environmental protection policies are not clear and relevant regulations are not perfect. Therefore, in order to achieve green production, enterprises must first have clear environmental standards for reference. Only when there are rules to follow, can the company make more targeted production adjustments. In this process, relevant departments must take into account the particularities of different industries, formulate reasonable environmental protection regulations, and actively carry out publicity and popularization to help enterprises understand and adapt to new rules as soon as possible.
Second, the introduction of new equipment and new technologies. Traditional equipment and technology are difficult to adapt to the requirements of the new standard. If the enterprise is transformed, it is still difficult to achieve the standard, and the introduction of new equipment and new technology is a good method. New equipment and new technologies can not only achieve the goal of energy saving and emission reduction, but also help enterprises to improve production efficiency. Of course, the complete replacement of equipment is expensive, and companies can consider partial replacement or use of equipment with emission reduction effects. The accessories such as magnetic separators and paper tape filters commonly used in the machine tool industry can achieve certain environmental protection effects.
Third, upgrade the workshop. For a strong enterprise, it is of course the best choice to establish a more scientific and reasonable processing workshop. For example, the now more expensive CNC workshops and intelligent workshops can realize the full utilization of resources. This type of workshop is not only efficient, but also optimizes the factory environment to the greatest extent possible. At present, this is also the development mode advocated by manufacturing companies.
After talking about the green manufacturing of the company, let’s talk about how the enterprise of the enterprise should produce “green products”. In general, environmentally friendly machine tools have the following characteristics.
First, it meets environmental standards. As mentioned above, machine tool enterprises must comply with environmental protection standards in production, and the products produced must naturally meet environmental protection standards. To do this, it is necessary not only for enterprises to invest in related technologies, but also for the industry to work together to improve the relevant institutional systems. Random rules are not perfect, and good rules are essential for machine product upgrades. Moreover, with uniform and clear rules, it is also conducive to the development of industry products to standardization.
Second, energy saving and efficient. Green manufacturing is also known as environmentally conscious manufacturing. In the process of mechanical manufacturing, environmental factors are taken into account. The purpose is to use technical means to optimize manufacturing processes, reduce environmental pollution, and achieve resource conservation and sustainable development. Therefore, “green products” are also necessary to achieve energy efficiency. This requires companies to take environmental protection into consideration at the beginning of product design, while minimizing pollution in material selection and processing. In addition, the ability to deal with pollution needs to be reflected in the product, such as whether it can achieve water and oil separation during cutting, whether it can reduce dust and waste pollution.
Environmental protection is a big issue. It not only requires companies to consider the impact on the environment in production, but also requires enterprises to make full use of resources, reduce unnecessary losses, and achieve sustainable development. Gradually strict environmental protection requirements tell us that the trend of green manufacturing is irreversible. As an industrial machine, machine tools should start from itself and actively respond to the call for environmental protection to help downstream manufacturing companies achieve green development.
