eta|opt is developing energy efficient product and process solutions for the industry. The highly efficient vacuum handling system eta|vac SH-mini produces a decentralized vacuum for industrial handling processes. An electro¬mechanical linear actuator decreases and increases the volume of a bellow and thereby generates a vacuum. This innovative technology enables the production of highly efficient and decentralized vacuum without compressed air. This technology can saves around 60% of energy compared to conventional sytems relying on compressed air. Additionally, we offer supplementary services and expertise such as the analysis and improvements of industrial processes, trainings for energy efficiency and the development of subtitution concepts for applications with compressed air.
