If precious and expensive raw materials need to be dispensed and formulated accurately Wei-Pack Batching systems are the right choice.
Whichever industry you work fo formulation of components is always involved and a crucial part of your value creation process.
Stable product quality and robust production processes are deciswe to your production yield, profitability and commercial product success.
Minor shifts or variations of ingredients can alter the properties of your product drastically.
Wei-Pack offers manual, semi-automatic, and automated dispensing & formulation solutions to suit your individual requirements. The product range spans from compact and terminal based solutions up to networked PC-based software systems providing full process traceability, centralized recipe management and a large choice of formulation methods. Elimination of user errors and raw material wastage result in maximized production yield and improved profitability.
Today’s market calls for more recipes, in smaller quantities, on very short notice. These demands result in the need to add to the range of standard products, while still maintaining minimum inventory and operating costs, and a “just in time” manufacturing philosophy. Additionally, more stringent performance specs Increase the need for accountability. These challenges are best met by employing Wel-Pack batching systems.
The main function of a batching system designed by Wei-Pack is to produce the scheduled production volume, within specification at near zero error and sufficient automation to keep labor costs at a minimum. This can be accomplished by selecting a batching system best suited for the plant’s production needs.
To determine the most appropriate system for your specific batching applications, Wel-Pack’s multi-disciplined engineering team considers these important factors in the initial phase:
- Production Capacity or the total annual blend volume
- Total number of batches produced
- Finished Product Storage Capacity for batched products and the value of bypassing holding tanks to blend directly to filling or bulk loading
- Total number and volume of bulk storage
- Number and storage requirements of drummed additives
- Component characteristics such as viscosity and batch temperature
- Number of batch family groups and the safeguards necessary to avoid contamination
- Quality control requirements, blend testing procedures and the degree of difficulty correcting blends once made
- Energy cost factors
- Labor cost factors
