Situation

The production of cars by a car manufacturer must become more energy-efficient and thus more environmentally friendly.

Problem

The current assembly does not meet the CO2 requirements of the car manufacturer. The CO2 footprint must be as low as possible.

Goal

Increasing the energy efficiency of the assembly, thereby reducing the CO2 footprint and thus achieving a more environmentally friendly production.

Solution

One active energy management device PxtFX per robot. The energy manager PxtFX stores the braking energy of the robot and returns it directly to the robot the next time it starts up. The recuperation reduces the energy required by up to 1.6 kWh per PxtFX per operating hour.

PxtFX

Der PxtFX speichert die aufkommende Bremsenergie zwischen und gibt diese sofort beim nächsten Bedarf in das System zurück. 

Advantages

Icon
Increase productivity

The robot can be driven faster by using the PxtFX.

Icon
Increase energy efficiency

By using the PxtFX, the required energy can be reduced by up to 1.6 kWh per operating hour.

Icon
Recuperation of braking energy

The resulting braking energy is temporarily stored and fed back into the system as required.

Further Advantages

  • Energy savings of up to 3.5 t CO2 per PxtFX and year

  • Climate-friendly production of cars due to lower CO2 footprint
