  • Food Manufacturer Integrates Five Lines

    PostedFriday, September 10,2021 at 2:33 PM

    Consolidating and upgrading six lines from three different factories into a single facility was a challenging task for a food manufacturer that was recently acquired by an international brand. The newly constructed facility was to be converted into a plant capable of reliable production. To satisfy the parent company investors and maintain delivery of product to customers, the project needed to be as time efficient as possible. The automated system was professionally designed for equipment reliability, efficiency, and consistency. The design was standard across all packaging lines in the facility, so operators recognize the interface regardless of the line or their position. Polytron followed best practices for expedited and precise design, implementation, and startup. The system and new lines are highly productive and
    have low downtime achieving the parent company’s goals.

  • Beverage Manufacturer Increases Production with Less Capital

    PostedFriday, September 10,2021 at 2:20 PM

    Inefficient bottling lines and aging line assets seemed to be creating excessive downtime and waste resulting in pressure to meet the growing market demand without increasing expenses. With operation performance unknown, forecasting the ability to meet increased market demand is ineffective. Building another plant seemed unavoidable, but the task would be time-consuming and costly. To meet the increasing market demand, solution phases guided the manufacturer to their goal and a manufacturing operations management (MOM) solution was designed. Upgraded digital data capturing allowed for real-time, accurate production data to support decision clarity. In just
    three months, the performance covered the cost of the project, delaying the need for new plant construction and successfully exceeding the company’s goals. Increased output enabled construction of 2nd factory to be postponed by 18 months.
