Marzoli Commits To Green Innovation
Spinning machinery manufacturer Marzoli S.p.A., Italy, has committed to its Marzoli Green
Innovation program to monitor and analyze mechanical, electrical and electronic, and technological
aspects of its production process to reduce their environmental impact.
For the past three years, Marzoli has received the Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers (ACIMIT) Green Label — which identifies the energy use and environmental performance of textile machines. Companies must comply with ACIMIT's "Sustainable Technologies" project and meet stringent compliance standards in order to participate in the labeling program.
As part of Green Innovation, Marzoli has modified and improved its Green Label-certified FT6/FT7 roving frame, and reports it has been able to reduce carbon dioxide emissions as well as increase energy savings by using deep groove ball bearings with RSL low-friction seals on both sides. The bearings provide increased precision, reduced noise and improved sealing; extend working life; and reduce friction, which can reduce vibration and increase power savings by at least 5 percent on a machine featuring between 700 and 900 ball bearings.
