  • Example 1:-     Factory LED lighting is controlled automatically to adjust to preset luminance and to automatically switch off if an area is unmanned
  • Example 2:- . Approx 75% of GTB Components raw materials are produced from recycled scrap
  • Example 3:-  Developed and Patented a process to produce cross holes during compaction which removed the need for expensive and material wasteful, secondary drilling operation.
  • Example 4:-   Reduced electricity consumption from 20 KWh to 7.5 Kwh on 20 high speed production presses.   This energy saving had no effect on press productivity.
