With soaring energy prices, the energy cost has become an important factor in the total cost of the final product. After raw materials and direct labor, energy generally is the third largest variable cost in manufacturing, representing on average 3 to 5% of the company's turnover. Today it is no longer sufficient to optimize output, quality and logistics, also energy consumption is a very important factor in the operating cost of a production plant. A sudden increase in the energy consumption of a production run can push an order easily in the red figures. With ever rising energy prices and increasing environmental legislation, efficient energy management has become a very critical success factor to run a profitable business in today's global economy. In many countries there are incentives to save energy. In Europe RECIPE or the Reduced Energy Consumption in Plastics Engineering is such a program as part of the European Commission's Intelligent Energy Program. The EnergyMaster system can be offered as an extension of existing BarcoVision MES systems such as PlantMaster, WeaveMaster and/or SedoMaster but can also be used as standalone system.
Be it for spinning, weaving, knitting, tufting or dyeing and finishing, BMS has applications which allow productivity and quality improvement.
