This week we installed our units at Neonent Factory in South Korea.
Neonent is a major supplier for parts to the automobile industry with many of the biggest car manufacturers as their main customers.
The factory has very advanced production with a lot of automation including robots and complex processes. They also have several large electric high frequency arc furnaces for their metal casting processes. Arc furnaces not only consume a lot of electric energy, they are also a major cause of many power quality issues. Arc furnaces induce a lot of harmonics and fast switching transients to the electric distribution system which again have a direct impact on energy consumption and the reliability and lifespan of all the delicate equipment at the facility.
The benefits after installing our units are fantastic – voltage harmonics were reduced from 29 % (max) to 9 % (max) and much lower energy consumption resulted. The factory can from now on benefit from a clean and reliable power supply, lower electrical bills, less maintenance, less production stop and an overall safer electric system.
