These controls for Hydraulic machines especially for injection molding- will increase your competitive edge and may just open *$ales opportunities with lower part cost. *A NEB or Non Energy Benefit of Efficiency. NeB chart


 " Efficiency products featured throughout this site, offer solutions to gain a competitive edge"   


Take this to the bank in descending order of greatest cost," there's materialslabor then electric cost, the latter  running not far from labor.

 If you could, without losing your team, reduce labor costs by 10% wouldn't you ? Not a chance you'll get away reducing salaries, agreed. As I know, employees  "bounce" yearly for the ole mighty buck at drop of a dime.

 When you embrace efficiency and reduce electricity usage by 20-30%,  well within reach for most you'll achieve the same cost cutting as reducing labor by 10%. Now go can ahead, hire new employees or perhaps offer your staff a bonus. Aforementioned courtesy of captured kWh. A NeB of energy reduction.  Energy is not a fixed expense, yet  controllable variable that's costly when wasted.

Non Energy Benefits of efficiency, see NeB chart also on Syncrospeed page.   


The key to efficiency ," leadership MUST champion the charge to cut the fat. If not, just another meaningless paragraph in the  " company mission " 


    Energy Reduction's importance - so simple, though afraid not fully embraced nor understood by industry. Maybe because it's a silent  NET killer and  out of sight, I get that. Trust me, the kWh expenditures are sitting right under your labor cost.

Whether our lighting Retrofit, Scientific Molding, SyncroSpeed motor control, Insulation blanket, Gas and Electric Bill assessments. Or great partners listed herewith....the common denominators.... "trustworthy and the quest for repeat business that's earned the ole fashion way"


 Our teams arrive, to champion your entire quest towards efficiency. With meter and measure services then " before and after" implementation reports that offer "black N White " results. Your utility will offer grants often refereed as "rebates" representing 20% -50% of invoice.
