Increasing energy efficiency in packaging plants

Initial Situation

The packaging plant had a power consumption of 60 kWh. The energy for the conventional servo system was supplied via a bleeder resistor with a power rectifier.

The Rexroth 4EE Solution

Rexroth installed a comprehensive and integrated concept for the recovery of braking energies. The concept takes advantage of grid feed-in, energy buffering in capacity modules, and energy exchange via a 750 V intermediate circuit. High-efficiency synchronous motors further reduce energy consumption.

The result

The integrated concept for energy recovery lowers the packaging plant's energy consumption by 25 percent.


- Energy consumption: 60.0 kW

After Rexroth 4EE

- Energy consumption: 45.0 kWh

- Savings: 15.0 kWh
