Potato Chip Manufacturer Keeps their Spice Machine Moving

CUSTOMER PROBLEM:

Our customer makes potato chips in multiple flavor profiles. In order to do this, they require the use of a spice machine that moves constantly to add flavor to freshly cooked chips. They were having problems due to the inflexibility of the cable that was on the machine.

TPC SOLUTION:

To keep the spice machine in top working condition, we suggested they try our Super-Trex® Ultra-Gard™ portable cord for the flexible specially compounded TSE jacket that resists abrasion, tearing, impact, oil and most chemicals.

CUSTOMER’S RESULT:

When we checked in with the customer at six months, TPC cable was still in the application. With the previous cable, they were changing it out twice a month! In these six months, we’ve saved this facility over $5,500 in material costs, nearly $2,500 in labor and 84 hours in increased production.
