Thanks to energy management the company has already saved over 1,530t. CO2, equivalent to saving 729 hectares of forest.

Fabio Perini S.p.A has obtained the prestigious ISO 50001 certification for environmental sustainability. This milestone comes after a journey started in 2012 positioning Fabio Perini S.p.A. among the most cutting-edge companies in the converting sector and beyond.

2018 09 19 173647The company makes a formal statement of its focus on energy issue in the Energy Management System (EMS) document, where it officially commits itself to deploy human, financial and technologic resources to undertake a process of continuous improvement of its energy performances.

«In practice, what have we done? To start with – says Riccardo Signorini, Maintenance and Capex Manager of Fabio Perini S.p.A.– we deployed steps that can be defined “good housekeeping” such as switching off the overhead cranes at night and using our domotics to reduce waste of electric power and heating. Additionally, through the LSS methodology, we identified the best strategy for a more efficient energy management system, bringing Fabio Perini, as early as 2016, to be awarded the “Italia in Classe A”(Italy in A Class) prize by national Energy Agency ENEA».

Subsequently, Fabio Perini S.p.A. introduced led lights in the workshops, solar heating to obtain warm water in summer, solar films for the windows facing south and west and finally, one of the air compressors was replaced by a new generation model with inverter.

The results obtained are surprising: since 2015 the company has saved 12% power and 1,530t. CO2, equivalent to saving 729 hectares of forest.

The energy management systems in accordance to the ISO 50001 standards make Fabio Perini S.p.A. a key partner for customers who rank sustainability high among their priorities, helping them in connecting their core business with this perspective.

«The ISO 50001 certification process has been a hard task for us all – explains Riccardo Signorini – but among all our values we also count the pursuit of a sustainable, profitable development model. It’s an exciting challenge as well as a duty. For the next generations as well as for ourselves».

“Obtaining the ISO 50001 certification is surely a prestigious milestone, but at the same time it is the beginning of a virtuous journey for Fabio Perini. This journey we have taken brought us to developing technical devices to be applied to our company’s products, aimed at optimizing energy performances, which at present represent an interesting plus for customers sensitive to sustainability, and a cutting-edge feature for the companies in our sector”, Alessio Galeotti, DNV GL Enterprise Customer Manager, commented.

In perfect Industry 4.0 spirit, Fabio Perini S.p.A. presents the new Smart Machine 179AX: a log saw with 4 infeed lanes, unique in its kind, that allows fast & automatic blade replacement in total safety and without the need for operator intervention.

The machine is equipped with a 5-slot warehouse feeding an automatic change system of the worn blade in less than 3 minutes.

2017 10 17 071246

The blade change operation can be started up through a button from the OP or from remote control through All In One, if the log saw is part of a line equipped with this Smart Application.

The blades can be loaded in the warehouse without stopping the machine.

Additionally, the speed of the 179AX has been increased up to 270 cuts per minute and all adjustments for product change have been rendered automatic and can be stored in recipes, reducing operator intervention.

The quality of the cut has been optimized: the new grinding wheels geometry yields a higher quality of the blade edge, requiring fewer interventions for sharpening and thus guaranteeing greater blade life.
