Go Green with SolidWorks Sustainability
GO GREEN Earning Green Profits
There is shift in the manufacturing Industry’s thinking process. Industries today have become more environmentally conscious and are trying to utilize waste to the maximum, build more energy-efficient machines and thus reduce their carbon footprint. In such testing times, IT plays an important role in facilitating their manufacturing process, while helping them earn green profits.
WHAT CAN ‘IT’ DO?
Virtually everything! Factory modeling, process planning, simulation, collaboration, virtual factory setup, human fatigue measurement and optimization of design process are some of the many benefits of IT. And all of these benefits have a direct connection to going green. IT solution cab link people, process, technology and information throughout the entire operation irrespective of how old your machinery is. Besides, reactions and experiments, which are difficult to perform in real-life conditions, can very easily be done through simulation. Checking machine responses to high-temperature, simulating strange conditions and analyzing a machine’s reaction to change a particular component are much better done through IT. Industrial surveys indicate that the use of IT can reduce energy consumption by 10-20% that too without high capital expenditure.
SOFTWARE MEETING INDUSTRY DEMAND
Indian as well as international companies gave manufactured software, which are helping industries implement green initiatives. SIMTEK an Authorized reseller for SolidWorks Sustainability Software helped many industry like Ghatge Patil Industries Ltd , Craftsman Automation Pvt Ltd , Centre For Development of Advanced Computing (CDAC) and many in developing green products by which they reduce the impact of carbon footprint, total energy consumed and the effects on water & air.
DS SolidWorks uses the the gold-standard GaBi LCA environmental impact database from PE International to develop SolidWorks Sustainability Software which is a screening-level life cycle assessment (LCA) of the environmental impacts for full design, with seamless integration to the design process.
With SolidWorks Sustainability, you’ll have the built-in environmental intelligence to make more informed decisions about what materials to use. You’ll also see how region-specific material sourcing, manufacturing, use, and disposal will affect your product’s life cycle before manufacturing begins.
Environmental Impact Factors
Acid rain. Water pollution. Global warming. Dying animals, plants, and fish. The list goes on. Accurately gauging our impact on the environment has only really come into focus in the past couple of decades. Sustainable design looks at how your product’s development, from cradle to grave, will affect four crucial environmental factors
. Air acidification
. Carbon footprint
. Total energy consumed
. Water eutrophication
Measuring these impacts will help you better design for the environment.
Life Cycle Assessment
LCA is the detailed analysis that gives you the information you need to make the most environmentally friendly decisions throughout product design. The analysis looks at a product’s entire life, which encompasses ore extraction, material production, manufacturing, product use, end-of-life disposal, and all of the transportation that occurs between these stages.
