Plastic Pipe Manufacturer Mixes Raw Ingredients and Needs Automated System

Posted on November 21, 2011

Nicol Scales & Measurement Houston branch created a custom batching system that could duplicate the existing automated system.  NSM used a programmable indicator with a custom program (written in-house) that duplicated all functions and outputs of the customer’s existing system and added several additions requested by the customer.  The system was installed and tested in 1 day, and production resumed the next morning.  This new system is more reliable and accurate than the customer’s previous system, which lowered raw material costs and provided a very quick return on investment.
