BinMaster Mike Mossage 3DLevelScanner Product Manager 402-434-9102 mmossage@binmaster.com

Webinar Description:

Carefully managing your inventory of expensive plastic resins can help to improve inventory turns, cash flow and profitability. However, with resins stored in silos – it’s difficult to know exactly how much inventory is on hand and what needs to be ordered. The good news is there are new 3D sensors that perform reliably and accurately, even where other types of sensors fall down on the job. The non-contact, acoustics technology is proven to work in all types of plastics, including PP and PE and even low dielectric resins. Software advancements allow for setting automated level alerts and monitoring silos at a single site or multiple sites across an entire organization. Users have access to real-time data for visibility of inventory levels for multiple silos, a real time saver for those crunch times like month-end inventory. The 3D inventory management system provides highly reliable data for production, purchasing, and financial management to help make your people more effective and your operation more profitable.

John Pizzo, Technical Service and Development Engineer for Sun Plastech Inc. (Asahi Kasei Group)

Webinar Description:

As a processor, you're probably no stranger to the typical purging applications such as color and material changes. You're also well-aware of the benefits of using a good purging compound. Or are you? Are you using your purging compound to its fullest potential? Is your purge saving your company time and money on every application possible? This webinar takes a slightly different approach to addressing processing issues that can be resolved by purging. It explains how adopting a "Preventative Maintenance" program using periodic purging can further help save on changeover time, resin and purge material and ultimately money.

Mark Haynie, Dryer Product Sales Manager for Novatec, Inc. Donald Rainville, Energy Consultant for Novatec, Inc.

Webinar Description:

The key to drying PET efficiently is to minimize heat and airflow while meeting moisture and IV requirements...automatically. Processors are not inclined to put an operational dryer on the trash heap in order to get a new, energy-efficient model. On the other hand, when a new line is being added, the whole drying system has to be reviewed - from the system layout to the dryer including the usefulness of the control and options like gas-fired process heaters. Maximizing energy savings makes good sense in the long term as well as the short term.
