Improved Product Quality / Reduce Scrap & Rework

Situation

This company was having challenging product quality problems in their Finishing Department. They made the decision to upgrade their operations and incorporate Profit Finders technology.

Process Improvements

CMI installed monitors, controls, and alarms the temperature, conductivity, and pH of the chemical baths in their pretreatment washer. Now that the tunnel washer process is on a continuous improvement cycle, important coating line parameters are being tied into the system so similar improvements will be enjoyed.

Benefits Delivered

Improved product quality, lower rejects/rework/scrap, and lower chemical consumption. Also, continuous improvement projects are being implemented to reduce energy consumption.
