With it’s highly automated and computer controlled manufacturing of precision tooling the company is dependent on the quality of the mains supply. High ambitions regarding environmental friendliness combined with a cost conscious approach adds to the need for both energy and quality measurements throughout the electrical distribution in the plant.
With UMG devices in all 30 substations throughout the plant, as well as incoming grid and main distribution board, Sandvik has an ideal tool for quality supervision as well as for identification and follow-up of energy savings projects.
Asked about the cost for such an extensive measurement system they state the measurements are saving much more than what they cost, adding that the UMG devices combined function with multi parameter monitoring, energy measurement, and power analysis makes them very cost efficient.
