Despite advancements in technology, there will be instances wherein items from an assembly or production line have incorrect specifications. Many external factors can affect the final product, and sometimes machines don’t have control over these. Having too many defective end products can cause an impact on your manufacturing efficiency and eventually, profit and sales.
Readco Kurimoto LLC recognizes this problem and has introduced its line of Continuous Processors. This particular product can retain consistency in terms of product quality by automatically adjusting process parameters where needed. These monitor manufacturing processes 24/7 and adjusts, in real time, if there are any changes in outside factors. These include pressure, humidity, ambient air temperature and raw material properties, that can affect the finished product.
Various instruments such as viscometers, moisture analyzers and temperature sensors are integrated to oversee the whole process. Trigger points are pre-programmed and any changes would be adjusted in real-time through closed loop controls. Adjustments are applied in seconds, meaning these won’t affect the entire production line or the item. This allows the facility to churn out products that have the same target specifications.
These systems are custom-engineered for each application and dependent on the client’s needs. The company can also accommodate for various geographic variations in weather, altitude and other environmental factors.
Continuous Processors can do the following functionalities: mix, blend, react, compound, crystallize and/or perform other processes with multiple liquid, dry and viscous materials in a single step.
