As a 3D print company collaborating with other manufacturers in Canada and beyond, we have an important opportunity and responsibility towards the environment around us, as well as to the greater community we live in and collaborate with. We're helping move towards a sustainable future with our environmental policies and commitment to long-term sustainability.
Our environmental management system allows us to understand, manage and minimize our ecological footprint. This system is focused on the following principles:
Reducing wastage of raw materials by minimizing rejected parts and re-using unused material where possible.
Minimizing garbage through recycling and proper waste disposal.
Efficient water and energy use.
Minimizing the use of harmful substances.
Reducing carbon footprint by working and meeting remotely when possible.
Intrinsically, 3D printing generates less waste and greenhouse gases than traditional manufacturing technologies, without compromising quality.
At Tempus, we take this further by investing in equipment that has minimal material waste even compared to other 3D printing technologies, such as the HP Multi Jet Fusion 5200 which has industry-leading material re-usability, and have operator training and quality control processes that minimizes the chance of parts rejected due to being out of specification.
Reduced Carbon Footprint
The Covid 19 pandemic with it's fragile supply chains fast-tracked the shift to local manufacturing, including greater adoption of 3D printing technology.
By manufacturing locally, the carbon emissions are reduced by limiting the transportation of materials and products across the country and around the world. An additional benefit is the ability to support local businesses.
Tempus primarily uses Multi Jet Fusion technology, which has industry-leading powder re-usability and a lower carbon footprint than injection molding or comparable 3D printing technologies.
"COVID-19 and geopolitical and economic uncertainty have accelerated interest in adopting 3D printing to build resilient supply chains and enable local, on-demand manufacturing. As COVID-19 disrupted global supply chains and limited the ability to efficiently deliver critical materials, 3D printing emerged as a key technology to fulfill some of the most in-demand supplies. Although many companies understand the importance of digital transformation, the pandemic has led to business disruption including capital expenditure limitations, resulting in slower 3D printing growth over the past year."
