Lean Six Sigma Let´s Make a Higher-Quality Product: Mixing & Transport in Lean Six Sigma
Lean Six Sigma is a methodology used all over the world. It aims to improve efficiency and eliminate waste and activities not valued by the client. Dinnissen is developing process technologies, designs and automation systems specifically for production companies, which uses the concept for mixing powders, granules and granulates...
Production companies working in accordance with Lean Six Sigma methodology have six solutions available to ensure that their organization can work more cheaply, more customer-focused, and more efficiently. Technology is one of the most important of these solutions. Dinnissen Process Technology offers Lean Six Sigma companies specialized technology that contributes to these efforts. For example, compact manufacturing plants offering high production capacity and ease of access requires a lower initial investment and can also be cleaned more easily and quickly.
The Lean Mixing Concept allows companies to realize savings in terms of energy, labour, physical space, and investment costs for transport and storage systems by utilizing simplified gravity-based transport technology. Multifunctional mixers and vacuum coaters are cheaper to purchase and operate and require less space and labour. They offer production companies a great deal of flexibility.
Add it to the Mix: Process Design for Lean Six Sigma in Four Steps
Dinnissen offers a specialized development plan to companies, which are looking for one or more machines, providing them with certainty upfront and the opportunity to measure the results achieved and fine tune the technology. Many requests for a tailor-made piece of process technology is first subjected to an application test at its in-house D-Innocenter and for delivery with a factory acceptance test (FAT).
At this testing site, products submitted by clients are tested in combination with Dinnissen’s existing process technology. These tests make clear whether the technology chosen is suitable and how it can be applied. After the client-specific installation has been produced, mechanical tests are carried out to determine whether the technical installation functions optimally before delivery to the client.
After delivery and installation in the overall production line, the site acceptancetest (SAT) is carried out. Extensive test runs are carried out using the process technology delivered under all desired sets of conditions and with all desired raw materials and ingredients.
