In my recent travels of the east coast from Boston to Tampa, customers have been looking for quality solutions to be able to run:
and multiple sizes,
and multiple form-factors,
all on one production line.
Two things about this seem to be in every application:
- Change-over needs to be simple for the operators.
- Management needs to see the cost/time savings, be it planned or unplanned downtime.
But how can I do multiple recipes or multiple jobs on one machine? I have to reprogram/reposition sensors, move guide rails, swap out components, etc…
