New Automated Process For Earplug Manufacturer

The Client: Earplug Manufacturer

THE CHALLENGE: 

The Client saw a need for the production of a product they were currently not manufacturing. They needed an automated process to manufacture their new product.


LEC’s SOLUTION: 

LEC engineered and designed a custom blending system to manufacture earplugs. The system facilitates the blending of very accurate doses of the ingredients used to make the polyurethane. After blending, our system doses the proper amount of the polyurethane into a mold, which then goes through a curing oven and then a cooling station. The earplugs are then automatically removed from the molds and transported to the packaging area. Due to the success of this project, the Client doubled their capacity within the first year of production and we are scheduled to develop a second system for them.
