This report explains the EPS-project of Energy-Efficiency in wirehood machines and expands on how energy can be saved. Due to the fact that one of the machines is less efficient than the other one the EPS-Team had to detect the reasons of this deviation. The aim of the project was furthermore to figure out how wasting of energy by friction, heat dissipation, acoustic emission and non-regenerating could be avoided by showing up logical measurements and the consequent results. These studies test whether economic or environmental advantages exist. Therefore different ways to reduce dissipation of energy were taken into account. These are the usage of new and better lubrication-oil, different types of components and take decelerating energy to move other devices were taken into account. Thus, the operator can now be encouraged to invest in adapted components or an improved wirehood machine and see in this way if there is a potential return on his investment.
