Atlas Copco Helps Shanghai Panasonic to Achieve Valuable Energy Savings


Shanghai Panasonic PDP Co. Ltd. is one of the world’s leading color plasma display panel (PDP) producers.

Atlas Copco China - Panasonic factory
For large enterprises like Shanghai Panasonic, almost every production line is required to work continually without ceasing. If key resources such as electric power and compressed air are not supplied to the production lines, production will cease as a direct result with consequent economic losses to the firm.
Therefore, Shanghai Panasonic always prioritizes quality and stability when selecting production equipment. Shanghai Panasonic purchased three Atlas Copco ZR132 air compressors in 2001 and one ZR200 air compressor in 2003, in order to provide compressed air at the plant. All of the four air compressors have been operating smoothly since purchase, and have ensured the stable production of Panasonic Shanghai.
Mr. Lu Jianxing from Shanghai Panasonic Equipment Department said, “After using the AIROptimizer service, we achieved energy saving, cost cutting and stable system pressure. We are more confident about safe production for the whole plant. The whole system can be controlled by Atlas Copco on site, or monitored via AIRConnect remote monitoring system, which makes it very convenient for us to use. We are very satisfied with our energy saving results. Based on the operating conditions for the most recent six months since we used Atlas Copco’s AIROptimizer service, we expect to save energy costs of around RMB130,000 for the whole year, which is even higher than the previous estimate of RMB110,000.” 
Besides Shanghai Panasonic, Atlas Copco’s AIROptimizer energy saving solution is also used for many other applications including home appliances and electronics manufacturing enterprises (such as Qingdao Haier) as well as chemical, steel and other energy intensive enterprises.
