The 3-Step Approach to Better Waste Reduction in Aerospace Manufacturing

According to the Aerospace Industries Association, few if any industries have done a better job of improving environmental performance over the last several decades than the aerospace industry. The AIA states that today’s aircraft and engines are considerably more efficient than those manufactured just 20 or 30 years ago, which has dramatically decreased fuel usage and harmful emissions. Additionally, […]

A New Approach to Scrap & Fluid Management in Aerospace

A worldwide manufacturer of complex metal components for the aerospace industry needed to achieve maximum recovery of its cutting fluids from scrap material that was being machined at its facility in the Pacific Northwest. Additionally, the company wanted to receive a higher value for its scrap by removing the maximum amount of coolant possible from the material, as well […]

Aerospace Components Manufacturer Turns Its Waste Stream into a Revenue Stream with a PRAB Dualpak Briquetter and Guardian Coolant Recycling System

CHALLENGE With the combination of the briquetter and a crusher ahead of it, the company was able to efficiently and significantly reduce the bulk density of its scrap material. Instead of dumping the contents of the hopper directly into an outside container, the forklifts now deposited the scrap material into the briquetter, which uses dual compression technology to […]

Ultrafiltration Reclaims Oily Process Water; Reducing Operating Costs and Environmental Impact

CHALLENGE An industry-leading manufacturer of industrial-grade fastening systems discovers a better way to recycle washwater – reducing fresh water consumption by 130,000 gallons annually and reclaim machining oil by using PRAB’s Ultrafiltration System.     An industry-leading manufacturer of industrial-grade fastening systems located in the Southwest United States, produces durable fasteners for operation in extreme conditions. […]

Wear Abatement Strategies are a Cost Saving Component of Capital Equipment Purchase

CHALLENGE The metalworking industry, like many other manufacturing market segments, has been forced to scrutinize capital equipment purchases in an effort to squeeze the most from a tight capital project budget with short expected returns.     Often, pre-project planning and equipment evaluation do not take into account the long-term operational effects of rugged operating conditions, […]
