Storage Systems Save Electricity

KASTO, Inc., Export, Pa., offers an energy recovery and storage concept for its automatic bar stock and sheet metal storage systems, which makes it possible to convert surplus kinetic energy into electricity and store it temporarily for later use. This energy-saving system cuts operating and investment costs and reduces CO2 emissions. Energy recovery is now available as an option with all KASTO storage systems. The electric circuits for the drive shafts of the operating gantry crane are connected through a DC link. Surplus kinetic energy, such as that produced in braking of the crane or lowering of lifting gear, can be converted into electricity and fed back into the grid. Consumption of electric power can be reduced by as much as 40 percent compared to conventional drive systems, the company claims.
