How we manage production costs that allow us to remain competitive, profitable and continue to invest has never been more critical than now.
All aspects of our business are essential and include knowledge, people, materials, equipment and processes. “How to Overcome the Top 5 Challenges in Plastics Manufacturing” is a good article from Conair that later captures all the areas mentioned.
While not obvious, there are solutions to problems that may not be facing deadlines or product quality but can reduce the costs of running your everyday business.
The case study below shows how one company found a great cost solution and used their regrind internally. A couple of benefits are shown below.
Saving money on raw materials and cleaning costs…
They’re no longer paying to outsource their regrind cleaning, plus every pound of regrind material re-entered into the production cycle (the bulk of which is Acetal, PP and PE, which range in price from $.90 to $1.23/lb) means less money spent on purchasing virgin material.
…and the solution has already paid for itself
The savings in logistics, cleaning and improved efficiency led to this result — the manufacturer has already decided to replicate the solution at a second facility to further their efficiencies.
A boon to sustainability efforts
Using recycled materials means less strain on natural resources and a more extraordinary ability for this manufacturer to honor their sustainability commitments.
We invite you to explore more on Conair’s website and look under Resources. Here you will find White Papers, Articles, Case Studies, Webinars and Videos that will prove helpful to all aspects of plastic processing.
