How to make a metal-cutting blade that doesn’t break
Reusable non-fiber materials that can be recycled, such as steel, are becoming increasingly popular as part of the increasingly affordable, sustainable energy revolution.
The technology, which involves using a metal that’s a perfect conductor of electricity, can be applied to almost any material and can produce significant improvements in efficiency and power output.
The cutting and welding process can be easily scaled up to meet the demands of an industrial or power generation facility.
“Reusable metal cutting blades can produce high-performance energy-saving products that reduce the energy and carbon footprint of industrial processes,” says Kevin L. Schafer, the CEO of the Reinvent Energy Foundation.
“This technology is also a good fit for many applications that need a high-speed, low-cost energy delivery system.”
Reinvented energy materials are available at the recycling industry trade show in Las Vegas, and in some cases, they are being used in power plants.
In one case, the company is currently working with a manufacturer to make an energy-efficient, non-polarizing, and energy-absorbing steel blade.
This is a prototype of a blade that is being used to make blades for the power plant’s heat exchanger and turbine.
In addition, Reinvent is developing an electric-powered blade for a metal fabrication factory.
“The technology is in its infancy, and we’re excited to see this first step in the next step,” says L. David Lutzer, Reinact’s vice president of product management.
“With this technology, we hope to improve the efficiency of our production process and reduce energy consumption by up to 90 percent.”
Reinact currently has a handful of industrial customers that are using the technology to reduce their energy costs.
“We are currently working closely with a number of companies that use our product to reduce energy costs for their operations,” Lutazer said.
“A lot of companies have seen significant reductions in their energy usage, especially with the recent growth of renewable energy technologies.”
The energy-efficiency improvements that Reinact has been able to achieve are just the beginning.
In 2017, the technology was applied to a new steel mill that is the world’s largest.
Reinvent says the mill uses the Reinact energy-neutral blade technology to cut and weld steel that is made of a carbon-fibre material.
Reinact also has an ongoing partnership with a company that manufactures non-hydrofluoric acid-based coatings on steel that can reduce heat loss.
Lutazar says the company has already developed a prototype for an energy efficient metal cutting blade.
Reinach and Lutazers plans to use the technology in a range of industries, including power generation, automotive, aerospace, and pharmaceutical manufacturing.
“As we continue to grow, we are looking to partner with new technology companies to provide energy efficiency, durability, and durability, to further advance our energy solutions,” L.
