Fill optimisation solutions – eliminate risk, reduce wastage, improve product quality
Efficient and accurate fill optimisation is crucial for industries that rely on precise measurements and quantities in their manufacturing processes. Harford Control offers advanced solutions to optimise fill operations, ensuring consistency and compliance with quality standards. With our expertise in fill optimisation technologies and systems, businesses can eliminate risk, reduce wastage, improve product quality, streamline production process and ensure compliance with regulatory requirements.
Minimise overfill or underfill, reduce waste & enhance efficiency
Harford fill optimisation incorporates weight control, average quantity, and process integration to ensure optimal filling while complying with average quantity regulations. Through precise measurement and control, businesses can achieve consistent product quality, minimise overfill or underfill, reduce material waste, and enhance operational efficiency. Our solutions enable manufacturers to achieve end-to-end traceability, providing actionable insights for managers and operations.
Weight Control (eMarking)
Weight Control is a key component of fill optimisation. It combines the advantages of the Average Quantity Law, Statistical Process Control, and Process Capability to ensure optimal control in the face of significant process variation.
While the Average Quantity System protects the consumer from purchasing underfilled product, it helps businesses maintain consistent fill levels by monitoring and managing the average quantity of products during production.
Process Integration solution involves monitoring the entire journey of raw materials, from their initial stage to the final processing in vessels and tanks, ensuring real-time visibility of performance and quality for streamlined operations.
Statistical Process Control (SPC)
Harford system automates SPC and Process capability analyses, establishing suitable Target and Control Limits for each product/production line to achieve optimal fill levels with minimal waste and fewer adjustments.
Why work with Harford Control?
Over several decades, Harford Control has worked tirelessly with a wide range of factories in order to optimise their production performance.
With the Harford Manufacturing Execution System (MES) tailored to your needs, you will more easily reduce errors, find the hidden wastage and consequently become more efficient, whilst continuing to deliver consistently high quality products, making your business more profitable and sustainable.
Most manufacturers are facing ever increasing input and transformation costs with few opportunities to increase the output price to their customers.
This should encourage manufacturers to look more deeply into their production processes to find the hidden costs, eliminate wastage and thereby improving efficiency without compromising quality.
The problem of rising costs and fix output costs is nothing new and will not end. Therefore performance improvement to drive down transformation costs must be continuous.
Who we have helped
What is fill optimisation?
Fill optimisation in manufacturing refers to the process of carefully calibrating and controlling the amount of material or substance filled into containers or products. By ensuring precise filling while minimizing wastage, this approach enhances operational efficiency and maintains product integrity.
Why is fill optimisation important for manufacturing?
Fill optimisation is pivotal for manufacturing due to its impact on both financial and product-related aspects. Properly optimised filling processes reduce material wastage, leading to cost savings and environmental benefits. Moreover, it guarantees that products meet quality and consistency standards, boosting customer satisfaction.
How does fill optimisation contribute to cost reduction?
Fill optimisation directly affects costs by reducing material waste, leading to substantial savings in the long run. This approach minimises overfilling or underfilling instances, curtails the need for rework, and safeguards against costly regulatory fines.
What technologies are used for fill optimisation?
Fill optimisation utilises sophisticated technologies such as precision sensors, automated controls, and real-time monitoring systems. These advanced tools ensure accurate measurements, enable regulation of filling procedures, and generate data for continuous process improvement.
How the solutions improve product quality?
Fill optimisation enhances product quality by guaranteeing uniformity and adherence to predetermined fill levels. This diminishes variations, prevents the occurrence of underfilled or overfilled products, and consequently elevates overall product quality and customer satisfaction.
