In small-medium size plastic manufacturing companies, many operations could be automated, reducing manual handling and costs
Customer: Binders, primers and adhesives manufacturer
Customer requirement: Due to increased demand for a high-quality wall-paper adhesive the company who are a leading manufacturer of high-performance adhesives for a wide range of industrial applications, had a requirement to discharge bulk quantities of PVC and Calcium Carbonate from single use bulk bags into three process mixing vessels.
Gimat solution: The application was difficult as it required multiple conveyors to be utilised from a single bulk bag outlet(s) manifold to feed the individual process vessels. Space was also restricted due to the close proximity of the new mixing vessels to the bulk bag discharge frames.
This application featured a number of engineered solutions to ensure that the customer demands were met, GIMAT provided the mechanical installation and commissioning of both systems.
