Oshkosh, Wisconsin (PRWEB) January 10, 2013
For high-volume food and consumer goods manufacturers, every minute of change-over down-time can cost thousands of dollars in unproduced product. In high capacity production environments, forward thinking manufacturers look to minimize or eliminate the need for change-over and at the same time plan for system adaptability for product sizes of the future. By popular request and a sequel to Nercon’s last webinar on change-over, this webinar explores line layout strategies and conveying solutions that do not require change-over between product sizes.
Recommended attendees are packaging line engineers, plant and operations managers and automation specialists in the food and consumer goods manufacturing industries. The webinar, with video and live Q&A will cover:
- Mistakes to avoid when removing and minimizing change-over
- Conveyors and equipment that provide real-time change-over
- Product handling criteria for no-changeover conveying scenarios
- Before and after layout examples of removed or minimized change-over processes
- Controls package and logic requirements for fully automated systems
- Cost justifications examples and payback calculation comparisons
