Polymermedics Process Engineer, Sharon Mitchell, assesed the Quantum Q7 gravimetric blender and derived strategies for enhancing its productivity. The machine was modified upon Sharon’s enquiry about accuracy and reliability.
As a leading moulder, Polymermedics has a long history of partnership with Piovan, a world’s best ancillary equipment and services supplier based in Venice. We were offered to take a look at their Quantum Q7 gravimetric blender to suggest some areas for improvement. Our Operational Director, Neil Skyba, was very confident that our insights would prove useful: “I looked at the system from an operational point of view, and saw exactly how I wanted the machine to work”
At Polymermedics Ltd, our leading professionals work daily on securing the quality for our customers. One of them, our Process Engineer, Sharon Mitchell, was delegated to asses the machine’s capabilities and come up with some ideas for development.
“I looked at the system from an operational point of view, and saw exactly how I wanted the machine to work”
Wasting no time, Sharon analyzed Quantum Q7 and referred back to Neil. Our top-notch Process Engineer believed that she identified ways to improve the reliability, accuracy, colour consistency, efficiency, and cleanliness of the machine’s output. The outcome will be a huge saving for the company in the long run.
Soon after the discovery, all her observations were sent to Venice. After the manufacturers of the Quantum Q7 received Sharon’s suggestions, Sharon and Neil flew to Venice for the in-person meeting, where they further discussed with the specialists at Piovan the potential of findings.
“The outcome will be a huge saving for the company in the long run”
The outcomes were unprecedented: based on Sharon’s recommendations, Quantum Q7 was modified, which helped to reduce waste, improve efficiency, and maximize accuracy and quality of production.
