When it comes to achieving sustainability in the manufacturing sector, much attention gets paid towards using state-of-the-art materials, harnessing renewable energy, and reducing waste. While these are critical for achieving sustainable mass production by the end of the decade, they aren’t the only factors required to make that come true. Another component of achieving a sustainable future in manufacturing is the reliability of machines and other equipment involved in the production process. After all, downtime and replacements add up to wasted material and inefficient energy consumption. Think of it like a car you depend on to get your kids to school, you to work, and everywhere in between. Assuming your budget doesn’t account for an expensive repair or the addition of a monthly payment, a reliable automobile is paramount. In addition to the financial toll, the alternative involves the discarding of parts and possibly the entire vehicle in exchange for replacements. That’s a lot of added material and energy that isn’t required if you own a car built to last. Achieving sustainable mass production comes down to a similar situation; reliable machinery leads to less downtime, which leads to less waste. Over time, the contribution to efficiency provided by […]
