Wajax has a long list of customers who are working to create products with a reduced carbon footprint, from electric cars to recycled chipboards. Our experience and expertise allow us to help you produce such eco-friendly products. We partner with you, helping solve problems that hold back your manufacturing process so we can combat climate change together.
What also helps us offer solutions to problems that others can’t are our extensive longstanding vendor partnerships. With specialists from many different fields, we can take a holistic view of the challenges faced and focus on the small details to identify transformative solutions to customer issues.
Customers often come to us having encountered problems when attempting to manufacture eco-friendly products. Our network of vendor partners allows us to collaborate and identify the ideal solution and make it a reality.
The first example of our expertise in action comes from a thermoforming issue that took place in the manufacturing process for a high-end electric car. The company’s output capabilities were being hampered by an inability to accurately read temperatures, disrupting their complex sheet metal forming process.
We turned to a major vendor partner – AMETEK Land Lab – who recommended an LSP-HD infrared line scanner. Its installation led to fast temperature readings, increased output and larger orders

Minimizing Production Downtime
Another time we were able to support a customer in the production of eco-friendly products came when we were asked to solve the issue of time-consuming shaft couplings for a paper board manufacturer. The paper board machines produce over 40,000 metric tons of recycled chip boards per year, and the downtime incurred was significantly impacting their production capabilities.
By replacing the couplings with a maintenance-free option, the customer enjoyed a number of additional benefits including extended service life. This has served to greatly reduce downtime and losses in revenue.
