A company using extruders in its
production process has, in order to sustain a stable process, introduced
additional heating zones at the production line. However, it generated
additional production costs.
We analysed equipment settings with
additional heating zones in relation to the production process being operated.
We suggested process recalibration with due consideration of new technical
The production effectiveness increased
Additional heating zones were shut down
The production process was stabilised
The product manufacturing costs were reduced
The production time was reduced, while at the same time the production line efficiency increased
