Trouble shooting cause of equipment failure

A company requested our help with an issue with a manufacturing process.

The manufacture used non-standard equipment and was subjected to unacceptable high levels of parts failures which were expensive to replace.

Merlin started by looking at characterising the material properties of the product being compressed and comparing the different variants for the different products.

The bulk density and compactability results were used to identify the cause of the manufacturing issues and suggest new process controls, based on the measurements made, to improve the process.
