The "BluePlus" label reflects the "4 BlueSteps":
1. BlueStep - Machine components
We always use the most technically up-to-date and energy-efficient components.
2. BlueStep - Standby Management
Our controlling equipment, which has been developed in cooperation with ETH Zurich / Inspire, acheives optimal standby management. It defines the switch-on / switch-off phases and the machines are only "on" when they are in use.
3. BlueStep - StuderTechnology
STUDER's StuderTechnology software makes a significant contribution to improving energy efficiency. Grinding cycles alone can typically be reduced by 25-50%, which in turn cuts the energy expended per part.
4. BlueStep - EE4C (Energy evaluation for customer quotation)
EE4C is a system that enables the customer to understand the exact amount of energy involved in the production of his workpiece. This as a compaison of different machines with different technical equipment.
