Take back care of a Variable Speed Drive
Take back solution for variable speed drives – enabling effortless upcycling and recycling of ABB drives that meet circularity principles
At ABB we design, build and deliver low voltage variable speed drives to the industry for controlling the speed and torque of motors used in machines and industrial applications. A drive helps to optimize the rotational movement of the machine in real-time. The benefits of this includes increasing productivity of the industry process and reaching sustainability targets in form of lower energy consumption and reduction of wear on industry application in operation. The lifetime of a drive is extended by applying ABB services and support to it.
Time to change the drive
Once it’s time to replace a drive that has reached the end of its lifecycle, there needs to be a system in place that helps to repurpose or recycle the material and parts in the drive. It needs to work in a way that does not burden the environment. Instead, the solution needs to ensure maximized reuse of the parts. The solution needs to operate transparently, and it must be easy to use by people in different functions working in industry around the world.
We are looking for a solution that will support the efficient, reliable and safe circularity of drives
Please join me and my colleagues at ABB to innovate this circularity solution.
