Sustainability in the automotive industry is for many a strategy that will spearhead a new, circular future. And in many ways, the production of electric vehicles en-masse is one of the first tangible changes we are seeing happen worldwide in response to climate pressures. However, the manufacturing processes to create these carbon-neutral cars are strikingly similar to traditional methods, which create an astonishing amount of waste.
Carbon emissions, and their offsetting, is an incredibly important topic for all of the worlds industrial giants, but none more so than those in mining and steel production. These companies are racing towards creating a more sustainable future and investing in projects and systems that can help them achieve these goals. Repair, Don’t Waste is proud to be a collaborator in sustainability with both Vale and Usiminas by reducing the potential E-Waste produced in industrial processes.
In-house electronics repair saves large LCD production line from being halted by programmed obsolescence.
Since 2016, one of the world’s top 10 largest LCD and AMOLED panel manufacturers that we will refer to as TG Optronics in Southeast Asia has been investing time and effort into finding a new, long-term solution for a regular electronic problem they were experiencing in their assembly line robotic equipment.
The subject of this case study is a company we’ll call IDS, short for “in deep ship.” IDS is the designer and manufacturer of RSS drill heads for offshore oil drilling. Prior to finding ABI and BoardMaster, IDS was having a problem with their RSS drill heads. Deep under the seabed, something was causing a fault in the transmission from the drill head. Without a drill head location signal, drill rig operators were forced to pull the drill.
Collins Aerospace MRO division joins the ‘Repair, don’t waste’ community, reaps great results following the implementation of BoardMaster, training, and certification from ABI Electronics.
ABI Electronics has just been awarded a contract to supply its exclusive electronic reverse engineering system, RevEng, to the MoD’s Defence Electronics and Components Agency (DECA).
Lockheed Martin (USA) teams up with British electronics specialist ABI Electronics to reduce E-waste.
