New Cable Assembly for the Food and Beverage Market
A revo machine at a protein processing plant was used a lot and was plugged and unplugged repeatedly. Heavy equipment was being rolled over the electrical cord/plug assembly. Plus, the cable was being used to pull the plug out of the electrical socket causing damage to the conductors and connection.
TPC designed a new assembly with upgraded cable that has required no maintenance since installation and the writing of this report, approximately 6 months.
The customer saved $200 in material cost and $425 in labor savings and has been able to continue the use of the machine without failure for 6 months. They’ve gained 8 hours in production time.
