The new facility was intentionally located just a few miles from the old one to minimize disruption of employee travel and connections to the community. To improve operations and worker satisfaction, employees from all production disciplines made suggestions for the design of their respective work areas. Each functional area can be extended according to the projects. The production flow within the new facility is sequential from raw materials to finished products, increasing efficiency. The traffic of forklifts used to move materials, for example, has been reduced by 70% compared to the old installation, which not only saves time, but also reduces the risk of injury. Two lifting cranes traverse the entire manufacturing hall so that autoclaves and automated systems can be moved between production areas quickly, efficiently and safely.
PACK EXPO Las Vegas and Healthcare Packaging EXPO (September 27-29, Las Vegas Convention Center) will bring together the packaging and processing community. With more than 1,400 exhibitors, no other event in 2021 will bring together a more comprehensive gathering of suppliers offering new products, technologies and solutions. Registration of participants is now open.
The new center includes a large area specially designed for Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT). Allpax offers turnkey integration of retort and automated handling systems as well as complete packaging lines, from filling to palletizing and stretch film packaging. Fully integrated systems during FAT allow operators to receive initial training and customers to experience the entire system in action. Allpax turnkey integration with rapid dismantling / reassembly strategies can mean up to 50% faster installation and scale-up compared to on-site integrated systems.
