A global food processing facility expanded consumer packaging lines and removed obsolete equipment at the Omaha location. Product throughput was inadequate to meet their commercial demands. Equipment downtime was becoming a liability and demanded an increasing amount of attention from operators and maintenance.
EAD specified, designed and integrated two new bag-in-box packaging lines to expand existing production capacity. Commissioning of the packaging lines was performed by EAD staff embedded at the client’s facility. We also developed as-built drawings of the existing plant utilities and product conveying systems along with equipment and materials handling system layouts for the new packaging lines. Further demands of this turnkey project were utility tie-ins for all new and relocated equipment, as-built drawings of the entire plant area, new fines collection systems and compressed air conditioning to alleviate material handling issues at product scales.
