Managing Manufacturing Productivity from Raw Material to Packaging

Managing Manufacturing Productivity from Raw Material to Packaging

Read on to learn about managing manufacturing productivity from raw material to packaging!

A sealant manufacturer doesn’t just want to depend on exact weighing technology for their tank farm; they also need a software solution to assist with statistical process control. The results for this were reliable weighing results and optimum productivity. Read on to learn about managing manufacturing productivity from raw material to packaging!

Key Facts

“Connections that stand the test of time” is not just a slogan that encapsulates Ramsauer GmbH & Co KG; it is also the company’s main philosophy. Ramsauer is the Austrian market leader for sealants, adhesives, and other PU foams, and they depend on Minebea Intec’s expertise to help deliver raw materials and check with pre-packaging.

Application and Different Products

After weighing the raw material tanks, dosing them into floor scales, filling, and mixing, a sample check is carried out for finished products. Products include:

  • Precision load cell PR6201/24D1 with MaxiFlexlock PR6001/..S
  • Four lift-up floor scales with frames for pit installation
  • SPC Enterprise with 3 Combics 2 scales

Benefits for Customers

Using exact weighing technology combined with statistical process control software will ensure optimum productivity. Professional consultation during the engineering phase with some precise demo equipment is possible, too – compact products, which are very strong and simple to install and operate.

The Project’s Goal and Its Implementation

Ramsauer GmbH & Co KG planned and also developed a tank farm with engineering firm WK-Tech, which consists of about eight 50m stainless steel tanks, as an essential part of the production system. At the bottom end of this tank system, it is possible to rill up raw material from lorries is unloaded and then distributed to the respective tanks; at the top end of the system, raw materials and then closed into dedicated mixing tanks, based on a formula from an Enterprise Resource Planning, or ERP system. One requirement of the raw material input process was to compare the overall weight of all incoming quantities of rat material with the weight specification on order. The stocks within the ERP system are maintained based on this new-found information. Depletion could be calculated accordingly.
