This company recycles factory parts instead of throwing them out

Complex manufacturing uses a lot of parts. Once the equipment reaches the end of life, these parts usually end up in landfill. Automation giant Schneider Electric has created a radical digital platform which enables a circular model with take back process. Business clients enter their product reference number. They can arrange for worn parts to be picked up, organize their repair or replacement and check the availability of circular parts so they can modernize without buying a whole new system.
