- Engineered Solutions
Client was looking for a long-term strategic partner to help with the continuous improvement of the productivity and operational efficiency of their baby formula production line. The current system was no longer able to meet volume requirements and future expansion plans to achieve the desired commercial targets. Operator safety was a concern and client was dealing with costly equipment failure and quality issues resulting in unnecessary waste. Client wanted a collaborative approach to address each problem area through a series of incremental improvement projects.
We utilised both Aluminium and Stainless Steel technology to meet hygienic and budget requirements. Our team developed multiple system solutions to balance the production volume and introduce new inspection and packaging equipment. We also implemented precise but delicate can handling options to improve the sealing process.
“Due to the close working relationship with the client we were able to respond quickly to new challenges and provide practical solutions to effectively improve production processes.” – Brian Gilmore, Sales Director of FlexCAM
Our team followed an agile approach throughout the project. This enabled us to quickly evaluate new requirements and resolve unforeseen challenges. In close collaboration with the client, we developed detailed design and implementation plans for each stage to meet specific performance requirements.
“Leveraging the modular aspect of our conveyor solutions, we carefully planned installation of new equipment in conjunction with our client’s production schedule to minimise interruption and downtime.” – Steve Alcorn, Managing Director of FlexCAM
The staged execution allowed the client to closely control cost. It also allowed us to reassess requirements for each phase and adapt our design solutions to achieve the best outcome for the various problem areas. It was also important that we provide flexible systems that can be easily modified for future improvements and expansion project.
