Companies worldwide are increasingly setting goals to reduce the environmental impact – and cost – of their operations. For many, reducing energy consumption and material waste represent ways to reduce environmental impact and to reduce operating costs. Modern, high-efficiency cutting systems and advanced CAD/CAM software can provide significant advantages. Utilizing closed-loop systems for recycling water and abrasive in waterjet cutting can also reduce environmental costs as well as operating costs. In addition, equipment that can be easily upgraded, sold or recycled can help reduce total product lifecycle costs.
At Hypertherm, we reduce environmental waste as part of our overall focus on waste reduction and cost avoidance through the application of Lean Six Sigma processes and tools.
