The Elsner Standard was in full effect recently when Elsner was awarded U.S. Senate Recognition at the Mantec Manufacturing Awards. Mike Chase of Elsner accepted the Excellence in Innovation award at the annual awards ceremony. Known internationally for delivering high standards and cutting edge solutions, Elsner takes great pride in building a wide range of converting equipment for the paper, film, foil, and non-wovens industries.
Boosting productivity is something Elsner Engineering knows a little something about. Not only do we run a tight manufacturing ship in our own operation, keeping a strong focus on lean processes and efficiencies; we manufacture fully automatic converting machines that are key to our customers improving their processes. We recently worked with a company who moved to an Elsner fully automated wet wipe production line and found an up to 90% increase in production. Yes, that’s 90. So, it’s no surprise they have begun the process to purchase another line. Have you considered integrating automation to boost your productivity?
Top Line Efficiencies, Bottom Line Gains
We know that purchasing a production line, or even one piece of machinery, is a major capital expense for most companies, and many people look at the cost of the machine solely as the bottom line price. However, a Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) approach is far more comprehensive approach to procuring machinery by taking into consideration all the facets of what makes an operation efficient and, more importantly, profitable. Saving time, labor costs, space on your floor—what are the pain points you’re experiencing that automated machinery could help you solve? When considering the boost in output and efficiencies you stand to gain by incorporating automation into your process, maybe you should ask yourself what’s the cost to your bottom line of NOT automating?
In the early morning of January 21, 2015 a fire ripped through the Allied Hygiene plant in the outskirts of London, destroying the industrial space and along with it 7 converting machines and production lines. A leading manufacturer of canister wipes, Allied Hygiene knew they must respond swiftly and with resolve in order to keep the business going. Their immediate move to engage key partnerships to facilitate new warehouse space and custom machinery allowed Allied Hygiene to barely skip a beat.
Allied needed cutting-edge converting machinery and Elsner Engineering helped get them back on their feet, better than before. Providing a wipe converting machine that allowed a fully-automated, turnkey system resulted in greater efficiencies. In fact, the one new Elsner machine as part of the Shemesh Automation line packed the power of seven machines.
