Passionate about going green
We are very passionate about ‘greening’ our business and are constantly working to offset activities at our factory in the Netherlands and with our global network of application engineers.
Investment in automation has helped us reduce our carbon footprint year-on-year and we are involved in a number of initiatives that deliver a host of environmental improvements.
The really good news is that the Flowdrill process replaces 500 million fasteners every year and this equates to over 2.5million tonnes of steel immediately removed from production with friction drilling technology. To give you an idea of how big a figure this is, if the fasteners were laid side-by-side they would travel 7500 kilometres around the world.
This is just part of the story. You also eliminate the transport network that distribute and deliver these fasteners, which means we are successfully taking out thousands of road, rail and air journeys every year.
What does this mean for you? Well, simply put, it means you save money, achieve better product quality, improve cycle times, support the move to lightweighting and, as an added bonus, reduce the amount of carbon you are generating.
It’s good to be green!
