Issues in the Manufacturing and Machine Tools industry
Tackling the most important issues in the Manufacturing & Machine Tools industry
Taking advantage of new technologies and materials to deliver improved efficiency is key to the future of manufacturing. Trelleborg’s engineered solutions are helping to accelerate this process, safely and consistently. Explore the resources below to discover more about the issues facing the machine tools industry.
Machine tools and manufacturing equipment operate in high-demand environments, so you will want solutions that are long-lasting and ensure continuous operation. Simultaneously, machine tool operators need a solution that can meet the large turnover and increasing speed and precision requirements.
You want to keep industrial environments safe and comfortable to protect the well-being of your co-workers and avoid costly downtime. It is important to choose the right material for the flooring of the diverse environments in industrial workplaces. Some factors to consider include areas where there is heavy pedestrian and factory vehicle traffic, factory areas with a risk of high-voltage electrical discharge and areas where oil is used. Machine operators will require the extra safety and comfort provided by rubber flooring with a high level of sound and vibration dampening.
Demand for sustainable solutions, advanced automation, meeting stringent standards – these are some of the challenges faced by manufacturers. With continuous operations that maximize efficiency and minimize waste you will be able to better protect the environment.
