Firing Industries Ltd. is Canada’s source for powder-handling equipment by Matcon, especially intermediate bulk containers (IBCs). These solutions not only boost production in the food-processing, pharmaceutical, and nutraceutical sectors; they also allow users to be flexible in their operations. A webinar by Matcon regional sales manager Shambrae Starr explains how organizations can evolve and adapt production techniques to meet customer demand with flexible power processing.
Tailor-made products delivered quickly
Consumers today demand tailor-made products delivered quickly, which makes flexibility a necessity in manufacturing. The challenge is to adapt operations to respond swiftly to demand and remain competitive. Matcon knows that short lead times and varying order sizes are a daily challenge for modern manufacturers who want to increase their market shares in evolving industries.
Starr’s webinar, You CAN Have Flexibility AND Increase Production, shows that manufacturers can achieve the title goal with the help of Matcon IBCs from Firing Industries. IBCs use parallel processing and the principles of lean manufacturing to solve these issues. Parallel processing decouples production steps so that formulation, blending, packing, and cleaning all happen simultaneously, which optimizes productive work hours.
Cleaning fixed powder mixers and blenders between recipe changeovers is tough and time-consuming, particularly if the recipe involves various liquids or allergens. Recent advances in IBC tumble-blender technology allow the use of IBCs to change between recipes quickly, add liquids to blends, and reduce the chances of allergen cross-contamination with superior containment in a more flexible process.
