With SMC’s use of topology optimization＊1 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.
＊Topology optimization is the methodology of finding the most efficient design for an object on a mathematical and mechanical basis.
Compact and Lightweight
The power-saving circuit can reduce CO2 emissions (power consumption)
when the device is energized.
Product CO2 emissions by carbon footprint formula
SMC realizes the importance of calculating not only the amount of greenhouse gasses emitted during the operation of a product but also those emitted during raw material procurement and production. The total amount of emissions are then converted into CO2 in order to find
the total amount of CO2 emitted by a product during its entire life cycle.
