Wild & Küpfer: Distinguished for Energy Efficiency
On March 17, Arburg GmbH + Co. KG honored Wild & Küpfer AG of Schmerikon, Switzerland, with the Energy Efficiency Award 2010. The award was presented at the injection molding machine manufacturer’s technical center at its Loßburg headquarters.
Arburg’s technical director, Herbert Kraibühler, praised the company’s rigorous and very critical analysis of its entire production chain. The two companies are united by a long partnership. For example, in 2000 they held detailed discussions about the pros and cons of electrical machines. The Swiss plastics processor – founded in 1979 – wanted its own whisper-quiet machine, since it considers noise a waste of energy. The company now has over 20 electrical injection molding machines installed in its production shop.
