Elnik Systems is a family-owned global leader in the manufacture of sintering furnaces and ovens that serve the MIM (Metal Injection Molding) industry. These furnaces are used to precision manufacture large quantities of small complex parts. Elnik Systems, located in Cedar Grove, NJ, has been designing and manufacturing leading edge technology ovens for more than 50 years and continues to produce the most advanced MIM furnaces and debinding ovens in the world for one-step debinding and sintering processes.
Elnik invested in solar as it wanted to reduce its energy costs to make it more competitive in the global marketplace. It also wanted to demonstrate to its employees, stakeholders, customers, and vendors that it is environmentally conscious and committed to a sustainable future.
ECS installed a 101.64 kW ballasted rooftop array using PanelClaw racking.
The solar array on Elnik’s roof offsets 70% of the company’s annual electric usage and Elnik has gained a measure of energy independence. The solar array also demonstrates the company’s commitment to sustainability.
