Improve efficiency, productivity and sustainability with Productive Machines.

COP28 Spotlight

NetZero by 2030. Responsible investment. Environmental action. Social inclusion. Impact-first – that’s the mission. The driving force behind UKI2S.

In line with COP28, it’s time to show you how we’re working with innovative startups to facilitate the change we all want, and need, to see.

Productive Machines

Productive Machines is on a mission to revolutionise the productivity of machine tools. It uses digital twin technology to simulate millions of different machine settings in order to find the most optimal combinations that minimise waste and energy consumption.

Chatter, a longstanding issue in machining, has plagued manufacturers for decades.

It disrupts operations, resulting in slower cycle times, increased waste, surface irregularities, and dimensional inaccuracies.

In order to minimise vibrations, human trial and error has long been the only solution.

Until now Productive Machines’ advanced technology can eliminate chatter in machining, leading to key sustainability benefits including waste reduction, resource efficiency, energy conservation, enhanced product quality, equipment lifespan, and safer workplaces.

Solving the chatter problem underpins Productive Machines’ vision as they work to empower manufacturers and machine operators to excel, save costs, and contribute to environmental preservation.

We’re delighted to back such an innovative company whose technology has the potential to reduce carbon emissions by 2.5 gigatonnes by 2050 – the equivalent of six years of the UK’s total CO2 emissions.

With £3 million in investment and a 19-member strong team, it has already proved its mettle after deployment at major manufacturers like Renault and MASA Aerospace. And the results really do speak for themselves – Ficep UK, for example, experienced a 110% increase in productivity, a 53% reduction in cycle time and a fivefold reduction in chatter vibrations.

  • Eliminate 2.5 gigatonnes of CO2 by 2050.
  • Cut energy costs by up to 25%.
  • 110% increase in productivity.*

Dr Erdem Ozturk, founder and CEO of Productive Machines:

“Being backed by the UKI2S and other publicly funded bodies means the world to us. It’s a huge acknowledgement and positive affirmation that the work we’re doing is having a profound impact within the manufacturing and machinery industry—and beyond. We’re excited to benefit from their resources and expertise, helping us to position Productive Machines as a key player in the sector’s global efforts to promote sustainability, environmental responsibility, and economic efficiency.”
