Between proper equipment, employee retention, and sanitary processes, food processors juggle a wide variety of issues. At EnSight Solutions, we’re passionate about creating revolutionary design to make plant managers’ lives easier. Read on to find out how we’re tackling the top issues for food processors – and how these solutions can mitigate your operation’s pain points.
Issue #1: Proper Equipment
The food processing industry is constantly evolving. This leaves food processors with a wide selection of equipment systems – a selection that can quickly become overwhelming. Fortunately, our team of EnSight Solutions sales specialists and engineers can help you identify or design the best equipment for your facility. Unsure how to tackle a unique problem in your processing facility? Our experts can design a custom solution that perfectly fits your needs.
Issue #2: Safe, Sanitary Processes
Food processing professionals know that safety and sanitation aren’t luxuries – they’re necessities. At EnSight Solutions, we’re passionate about keeping your products sanitary and your operators safe. We have several key ways of addressing sanitation:
- Ergonomic equipment:We prioritize ergonomic equipment to keep your operators safe and comfortable. That includes placing containers in positions that are comfortable to reach so your employees don’t injure themselves during routine cleanings. We also offer innovative solutions like the BackSaver, a unique cleaning mechanism that smoothly tilts vats toward the operator to allow easy access to the bottom of the container. Finally, we can customize your machines with custom safety cages for added protection.
- Sanitary design:All of our equipment is manufactured using high-quality, corrosion-resistant 304 stainless steel. Stainless steel is an ideal material for sanitary applications, standing up to harsh cleaning solvents and high water pressure. Additionally, tools like the BackSaver feature all continuous welds, few moving parts, and a glass bead-blast finish for easy cleaning.
Issue #3: Automation
Hiring, training, and retention are always top of mind for plant managers. Recent advances in robotics and automation allow food processors to reallocate their labor into higher-value areas, creating a more sustainable business model. But where to begin? If you have multiple employees standing around a specific area in your production line, that area is a prime candidate for automation. By focusing on automation, food processors can prioritize efficiency, mitigate sanitation issues, and increase overall uptime and return on investment.
EnSight Solutions can work with you to develop a variety of automation and robotics solutions for your processes. These intuitive solutions are easy to operate with minimal training and typically integrate easily with your current equipment. Not sure where to begin?
