Our vision of the future of manufacturing
The future of manufacturing is net zero, circular and efficient – supporting the transition to a sustainable world.
Manufacturing of the future will be driven by sustainable solutions that focus on performance, productivity and efficiency, all contributing to achieving net zero. It will be powered by fossil-free energy and have net zero emissions. Components will be designed for circularity and zero-waste, and made from recycled, repurposed or responsibly sourced materials to minimize impacts on natural resources. Manufacturing will provide a safe working environment for a highly skilled workforce in thriving communities.
Smart software solutions will drive efficiency, connectivity and autonomous processes. From design to the finished component, digital solutions will minimize the use of materials and energy, while manufacturing data will enable the traceability of materials for a circular economy.
We enable a sustainable future for manufacturing by providing high-performance tools and solutions for productivity which contribute to energy and raw material savings for the customer. We will lead in developing products that are net zero and resource efficient, increasing the use of circular materials and minimizing our own water impact. Our software will be at the forefront of the digital manufacturing processes of the future.
We will drive transparency, through providing real-time data and manufacturing footprint information. Our business models will enable the recycling and reuse of products to keep valuable materials in circulation. We will innovate sustainable materials for subtractive and additive manufacturing and look at ways to bring manufacturing closer to the customer. We will cut down emissions from transport by reducing distances shipped where possible and using more sustainable options. And we will cut down packaging waste.
Through all that we do, we will enable our customers to make sustainable choices for manufacturing of the future.
