We are facing high levels of smog and pollution, fluctuations in fuel prices, environmental matters related to fracking (hydraulic fracturing) and offshore drilling. These are just some of the many reasons for increasing fuel efficiency, both in vehicles used for passenger transport as well as commercial ones such as those applied to civil engineering works. One of the best solutions is to reduce the weight of the mechanical tools.
Lighter drilling machines allow for the consumption of less fuel, helping to achieve better air quality and reduce dependence on fossil fuels which, once exhausted, can no longer be replaced. In simple words, it makes sense to produce lightweight machines. This is the context for the challenge of SIP & T which has been producing lighter
