Get ready for demand growth
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.
