From exhaust regulations and flying taxes to a ban on plastic bags - the aspect of environmental protection has arrived in politics and society. But not only end consumers need to implement sustainable processes – foundries are also affected by this development.
The heart of every foundry is the melting furnace in which the metal is liquefied. These furnaces use different technologies to melt the material. The aim of every furnace, however, is to consume as little heat and fuel as possible.
ZPF, manufacturer of highly efficient aluminum melting furnaces, has just developed a melting furnace that melts down aluminum chips as well as recycle material and ingots, ensuring a sustainable utilisation system.
