Abstract

A power study was carried out to attain power profiles for the machines used by a Medical Device Manufacturing company in Ireland, on a particular value stream (VS) for two products, in order to; (a) understand the machines’ electrical consumption during productive and idle states, and (b) ascertain the utility services such as compressed air, coolant, process water (deionised water) and dust extraction consumed at each machine station during productive and idle states. The resultant machine profiles and utility services analysis were used to determine the energy usage baseline for the value stream and the Significant Energy Users (SEUs) for each product line. The study demonstrated that energy reduction during idle periods of time could be significantly reduced with either no-cost or low cost measures
