Engifield is 100% compromise with sustainable design and operating systems. Our staff follows the principles of waste reduction, materials management, pollution prevention, product enhancement, and energy conservation.
Sustainable engineering often takes these concepts to the next level by looking at the common points between technical, ecological, and economic systems.
Engifield follows these sustainability engineering principles with our clients and suppliers. In the field of mechanical power transmission engineering, there is a lot of projects following these principles. Electromagnetic brakes can be used to block the shaft of wind turbines such as wind trees in order to prevent the turbine from Overspeed in case too much wind.
In addition, centrifugal brakes are used in the personal rack and pinion elevators in the wind turbines generators. These devices are designed to move the elevator safely downside in case of transmission failure. Centrifugal brakes are assembled between motor and gearbox for this type of application.
One last example in the same direction is the regenerative braking systems, commonly used for the automation industry in electric cars. This solution uses the movement of the car and the kinetic energy to take advantage of it and store energy that normally will be wasted.
In conclusion, there is still a long way to go but in the field of mechanical engineering, power transmission solutions, and sustainability engineering, Engifield will be working for a better world.
