Problem Solving In Illinois
Baker Perkins’ expertise and know-how solved product performance issues at a major supplier of powder coatings in the USA.
The problem concerned several formulations that had proved difficult to produce at the required capacity and expected quality. Paul Young, Technical Development Manager for Baker Perkins UK and Randy Kincer, Baker Perkins Sales Manager for the USA, spent several days at the powder manufacturing plant optimising the equipment and the process.
After a structured series of trials and exhaustive tests that saw a marked improvement in both throughput and quality, the customer was delighted with the results. They now have a much better understanding of how the machine parameters affect product quality and output, and how making small changes can have a big impact.
Regular maintenance by a Baker Perkins engineer is recommended to ensure the equipment continues to operate correctly and efficiently. As part of its Lifetime Support commitment to customers, Baker Perkins experts are available for site visits to give support and process refinement advice that maximises efficiency and reliability. We guarantee high-end product quality with low running costs.
