Get ready for de­mand growth

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - MOTORS, DRIVES AND TRANSMISSIONS -

Me­dia is abuzz that 2014 is go­ing to be a big year for many in­dus­tries in­clud­ing the food pro­cess­ing and man­u­fac­tur­ing sec­tors.

The de­mand for qual­ity food and bev­er­age prod­ucts con­tin­ues to rise both na­tion­ally and from over­seas.

With the an­tic­i­pated con­tin­ued growth in de­mand, it’s im­por­tant to make sure your plant is at its op­ti­mum – both in pro­duc­tion and per­for­mance.

EQM is New Zealand’s lead­ing sup­plier of qual­ity equip­ment that helps drive your plant.

Here’s some top tips from EQM to im­prove pro­duc­tiv­ity: 1. Iden­tify and elim­i­nate bot­tle­necks 2. Min­imise risk of down­time 3. Stream­line pro­cesses 4. In­vest in new au­to­mated equip­ment 5. Ex­plore op­por­tu­ni­ties with au­tomat­ing

pro­cesses and re­duce man­ual tasks 6. Reg­u­larly check per­for­mance and

main­te­nance on equip­ment. EQM has on of­fer an ex­ten­sive range of equip­ment and com­po­nents from rep­utable in­ter­na­tional com­pa­nies such as STM, ABI, DAGU, Dix and Chal­lenge.

In­vest­ing in new equip­ment and fur­ther au­to­ma­tion of pro­cesses to re­duce man­ual tasks and labour can in­crease pro­duc­tion rates dra­mat­i­cally.

One of the most com­mon items of equip­ment to achieve this is a con­veyor, whether it be for raw ma­te­rial, boxes, buck­ets, bins, pal­lets, it re­duces fork­lift or man­ual lift­ing and shift­ing ac­tiv­i­ties so that key prod­uct man­u­fac­tur­ing equip­ment can keep run­ning all day at full pro­duc­tion.

Stain­less Steel gear drives are another ex­am­ple that raises the bar in fac­tory per­for­mance and stan­dards, be­ing very ef­fec­tive in ar­eas that need to be washed down and kept clean.

“As well as an ex­ten­sive range, we have strong knowl­edge of many prod­ucts but what sets us apart is our ded­i­ca­tion to high lev­els of ser­vice,” says an EQM spokesper­son.

“We know how costly down­time is on the plant f loor, so it’s our job to get you back up and run­ning or bet­ter still pre­vent the down­time in the first place.”

Make EQM your first call in 2014 so you are pre­pared to reap the gains from po­ten­tial growth pre­dic­tions.
