Over the past several years, SMC has continued to take on its social responsibility to seriously promote and support sustainability in order to minimize negative impacts to the environment.
SMC is always looking to develop newer and greener solutions with CO2 reduction as a top priority as a leader in the field of pneumatics. One of the key components of our comprehensive approach is the designing of compact and lightweight products. Smaller, lighter products require less raw materials to make and less time to process. In addition, the products themselves use less energy. All of these efforts contribute to reduced CO2 emissions.
SMC’s fully integrated technical, production, and sales departments are able to respond to the needs of our customers from around the world with a shared goal of finding new methods to effectively protect the environment.
SMC’s CO2 emission-reducing initiatives also include the promotion of eco-friendly factories and products. In addition, SMC promotes the reduction of CO2 emissions in our operations.
With SMC’s use of topology optimization, which is the methodology of finding the most efficient design for an object on a mathematical and mechanical basis, in the design process, more compact, lightweight products can be realized compared with existing products, resulting in a large reduction in the amount of CO2 emissions during production. In addition, these products can also contribute to energy-saving and CO2 reduction during usage.
