Karl Mayer Group Launching Energy Efficiency Solution

The Karl Mayer Group is launching an Energy Efficiency Solution, which takes a different, efficient and economical path to enable customers to achieve energy transparency that meets their requirements.

The Energy Efficiency Solution from Karl Mayer is a cloud-based solution that combines the latest sensor technology with a specifically developed analysis software.

“The high-tech connection enables customers to visualise selected data to identify their energy consumption,” the German company said in a press release.

The software displays the captured and processed data of networked machines and records the power consumption for production, heating and standby operation modes.

“Companies wishing to leverage these opportunities will have easy access to the Energy Efficiency Solution via my.KM.ON, the Karl Mayer customer portal,” Karl Mayer added.

The Energy Efficiency Solution provides customers with energy management support in a variety of ways.

For example, customers can gain an overview of the actual situation of their production processes by displaying the energy data of individual machines and the entire machine fleet in real time,.

It generates an energy data analysis from the past and uses it to generate its own energy reports. In addition, it is possible to efficiently control machine heat-up without manual configuration on site.

Customers benefit from an overview of the current consumption data with a graduated viewing depth.

A general compilation contains the values of the entire machine fleet and each individual machine. For more dedicated monitoring, the values for the current day, week, month and year can be output.

The display contains the details of the performance and energy data of an individual machine, broken down according to the respective machine status, and parameters for the power supply.

In addition to recording energy consumption, the Energy Efficiency Solution offers an analysis of the data.

On the basis of processed data from an elapsed time period, customers can compare the energy data of different machines or different fabrics respectively articles to each other.

The comparison of the consumption values of the machines can be adapted to the analysis goals by using different variables.

The reference range to which the consumption refers for example, per day, month or year, and the period and subject of the comparison can be set.

Likewise, it is possible to choose the amount of energy used, costs and CO2 emissions. The respective data can also be accumulated.

The comparative view of textile products includes the total amount of energy consumed and the total costs incurred.

Net consumption, i.e. consumption for the actual production process without energy requirements during stoppages, is also visible.

Based on the analysed historical data, the Energy Efficiency Solution enables customers to generate energy reports for individual machines or for their entire machine fleet and save them as PDF files.

To reduce energy consumption, it may be useful to switch off the machine heating system during stoppages.

The Energy Efficiency Solution offers the option of managing the heating operation for the entire machine park without manual configuration on site, which is extremely efficient.

Customers simply define the desired daily production times in one or more templates and assign the templates to the individual machines.

Next, the software develops the respective heat-up times from the input information. With the help of the templates, a weekly timer schedule can also be created.

According to it, each individual machine is put into production readiness on the predetermined date.

On the basis of all the information and options offered by the Energy Efficiency Solution, customers can take effective measures to reduce energy consumption and in turn, their CO2 emissions.

The possible savings depend on the use and capacity utilisation of each machine and the maturity of the measures taken so far to reduce consumption.

It is also possible to quantify and demonstrate the reduction in CO2 emissions.

The launch of the Energy Efficiency Solution is planned for May 2024 and the solution will be rolled out gradually. The Kamcos 2 machines from Karl Mayer will be included in the launch.
