Retrofitting in the Month of July!
Often our industrial clients need help with modifications on older equipment to keep up to date with the latest processes. This month we were able to help one of our packaging customers with a custom modification to one of their sealing machines. This machine was used to manufacture plastic packaging (similar to crisp packets) Our customer had a design change in their packaging, unfortunately this machine did not have the adjustment to accommodate the change and it was impossible to order OEM parts due to the machines age. If we had not come up with a design for the retrofit, our customer may have been forced to purchase a new machine!
Our design team met with the customer and together came up with some ideas. We ended up designing and manufacturing brand new heated adjustable sealing bars from scratch!
Not only did we solve the problem of their packaging design change but they now have more flexibility for future orders.
