Ecological Responsibility

We think about tomorrow. That is why we take action today.

In all that we do, top priority is given to protecting our environment. We are dedicated to promoting the economical use of energy and invest in new technologies and methods where the ecological merits are clear.

We are leading the industry technologically as well as ecologically.

There is much to gain ecologically when Ferag’s conveyor, transport and processing systems ensure high production availability while achieving high efficiency in converting energy into productivity.

We take account of this requirement at a very early stage in the development and construction phase. Simulation software helps us determine the optimum design for components, systems and concepts. New material-flow methods and so-called processing conveyor technology enable unprecedented freedoms when choosing the line layout of a transport system. Intelligent inventions like roller supports reduce friction coefficients by a multiple factor and lower the loads on materials to a minimum. Ferag customers thus benefit from top quality in more ways than one; in addition to unsurpassed net output, best results are also achieved with the economical and efficient use of energy and consumables.

  • Drive cables are configured precisely according to the requirements of a specific system. Instead of asynchronous motors, we use economical synchronous drives.

  • We employ modern cold-plate technology to cool frequency converters. Compared with electrically driven blower systems, we therefore achieve noticeable savings in energy.

  • Instead of pneumatic drives, we use servo motors. In the case of components that operate with a vacuum, the suction air is generated directly at the point of usage.

  • Thanks to permanently lubricated ball-bearings and guide-rails, oil volumes requiring disposal remain minimal.

  • A stand-by function automatically sets the drives of Ferag machines to hibernation mode when production is not running.

  • The consumables that have been tested and certified for Ferag production systems are distinguished by their high eco-friendliness.

  • Ferag production and logistic systems ensure a high level of ergonomics, thanks to effective sound insulation.
