Introducing WAM Engineering UK

WAM Engineering UK is the International Milling Directory‘s newest listing. Since 1987, WAM UK has been responsible for distributing and servicing WAM Group products to the United Kingdom and Ireland from its base in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire.

WAM began in Italy in 1969, and from its one-man workshop manufacturing screw conveyors, it’s grown into a world leader and key innovator in bulk material handling. The WAM Group prides itself on its commitment to research and development. WAM’s own laboratory, one of the largest in Italy for powder and grain research, was founded in 1987 and closely cooperates with institutes and universities to drive innovation in milling technology. Naturally, this also drives its always-expanding product range.

Bosch Packaging Data Revolution

Bosch Packaging Technology has introduced its Mobile Measuring System for capturing relevant data for the analysis of overall equipment effectiveness (OEE). The system enables manufacturers to gain a rapid overview of the OEE of their production lines and serves as a basis for equipment optimization, Bosch said.

The Mobile Measuring System provides the required data on output, speed, downtimes and waste across an entire line and identifies potential for improvement to increase equipment effectiveness and productivity, Bosch reports. If potentials are identified, Bosch determines through competent OEE consulting together with the manufacturer the main causes of the deficiencies and defines steps to address them, the company said.

“Increasing overall equipment effectiveness, and therefore production, is of great significance to our customers. Purchasing OEE measuring systems to identify any potential for improvement can, however, be very expensive and time-consuming,” said Roland Pichler, OEE Consultant, Bosch. “That is why our Mobile Measuring System is an ideal solution for our customers. It can be easily applied for a predetermined period of time and shows potentials for improvement quickly, simply and cost-effectively.”
