With energy prices surging across Europe, efficiency has become a high priority for all manufacturing and process plants using vacuum handling systems. Fortunately, based on decades of experience and know-how, SMC can outline four simple ways that you can reduce the energy consumption of your vacuum system. Using less energy per lift/transfer will provide a direct contribution to your bottom-line profitability while simultaneously supporting industry’s drive to net-zero carbon emissions.
This year, Murata is sponsoring the Formula Student Team from the Instituto Superior Técnico, University of Lisbon, with a mixture of funding and electronic components. Since 2001, the FST Lisboa team has been designing, building and testing formula type cars to compete internationally in the Formula Student competitions. During this time, they developed nine prototypes, of which three were combustion and the remaining electric.
Batteries are to have a central role in the future of sustainable energy and mobility. Affordable, high-quality lithium battery packs are needed in diverse kWh ratings to power vehicles ranging from eBikes, drones, and small city cars, to large electric vehicles (EVs), trucks and buses. On the other hand, large, container-sized battery arrays are needed as energy storage for home, commercial, and utility-grade applications to bring stability to tomorrow’s green-powered grids.
