  • 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.

    The first time a 3D-printed metal part was used on a commercial aircraft was back in 2014. At that time, the Airbus company produced a titanium bracket on a 3D printer and installed it on an Airbus test aircraft. Thanks to that successful rapid prototype created by Airbus, the entire industry begun to evolve.

    Ensuring reliable product quality in sensitive industries like aerospace is crucial. For example, in metal-based 3D printing, the entire process must be monitored from end-to-end. Keeping track of the stock material, the melt pool, the changes in temperature, object’s dimensions, etc. is vital to ensure quality. In this article we will discuss how Lanner Intelligent Edge platforms are used in remote monitoring solutions for 3D printers.

    The purpose of intelligent tank monitoring systems is to keep track of the tank’s content level with metrics like temperature and pressure. These systems use a combination of state-of-the-art communication’s technology and intelligent edge analytics.

    A remote tank monitoring solution lets you keep track of the tank liquid’s level and temperature from anywhere in the world. Monitor single tanks, multiple distributed tanks, farms tanks, and anything storing from fuels to lubricants, water, chemicals, and fertilizers.
