When you begin planning a new facility or a major upgrade of your plastics processing plant, you quickly realize that the task is much more complex than you first thought.
Material handling, central water, resin drying, blending, scrap reclaim, plant-wide controls… all the auxiliary equipment must be perfectly integrated with primary processing equipment. It all needs to be spec’d, delivered and installed on time and on budget. And it all needs to operate efficiently on the first day and years into the future.
Few processors today have plant engineering personnel on-staff, and hiring an engineering consultant adds additional layers of cost and management complexity without necessarily delivering the specialized plastics-processing knowledge needed to achieve the best result. So, where do you turn?
Conair… of course!
Conair has the breadth of equipment, the comprehensive process knowledge and expertise, and they develop scores of systems like yours every year. They have the global manufacturing, engineering, installation, service and support capabilities – and a team of project managers and applications engineers – to see your project through to successful completion.
From the moment you place your systems order, your project becomes the responsibility of a Conair project manager. These experts have, on average, 15 years of experience. Your Conair project manager remains a single point-of contact as other specialists become involved. These may include Conair’s in-house systems-engineering specialists and installation team. Together, they’ll work with you from initial planning through scheduling and installation and even after start-up to make sure everything goes according to plan.
