Going Green | Kaman Industrial Technologies

Green solutions for community, industry and the environment.


SustainabilityEnvironmental stewardship, carbon footprint and green manufacturing are words that until recently did not translate into manufacturing up-time, cost savings and production efficiency.

However, with the advent of emerging technologies, manufacturing innovation and corporate advocacy, it is not only possible, but also practical for industrial companies to be environmentally friendly and energy efficient. Today's plants are finding more and more that going green makes both social and economic sense.

Kaman Industrial Technologies is proud to provide products that offer green solutions to a variety of common production requirements and challenges. Energy efficient motors, bio-degradable lubricants, high-efficiency hybrid bearings and process optimizing condition monitoring devices are just a few products that Kaman offers to strengthen the sustainability of your organization and environment.

Effective energy management requires an integrated solution that looks at mechanical, electrical, hydraulic and pneumatic systems simultaneously as changes in one area will often have implications in another. Some strategies focus on containing energy waste within existing systems. Others suggest whole new ways of doing things. Kaman is constantly investigating new methods and ideas to identify the ones that hold the greatest potential for long-term results, including:

  • Leading edge gearing geometries deliver efficiency to your power transmission systems and horsepower to your machines
  • Innovative friction management solutions minimize energy draining drag in bearing applications
  • Cost-driven motor management strategies provide a balanced, practical approach to ensure reliability and energy savings
  • Variable demand system optimization eliminates energy waste during off-peak cycles
  • High efficiency, variable output power units create surprising levels of efficiency in hydraulic systems
  • Comprehensive lubrication management programs help to cut energy consumption while extending the life of your components
  • Leak detection and repair programs pinpoint sources that drain power and waste energy
  • Belt tensioning audits help reduce drag and wear created by over-tensioned belt drives
  • Utility rebate assistance ensures that you reap all of the benefits you've earned through your energy management practices
