Material management is a significant challenge in both plastics manufacturing and other industries. Using the appropriate quantity of both bulk and additive materials is necessary to both ensure quality and reduce material waste. Additives that account for just a small percentage of a product’s recipe can also account for a significant fraction of its cost, making any deviations expensive.
To mitigate these costs, manufacturers need a material management solution that allows them to control and monitor recipes. Matics provides a solution with a robust recipe management module, allowing for the storage, development, and management of product recipes. With real-time monitoring, actual production is continuously compared with recipes to identify deviations and alert production teams. Manufacturers can reduce out-of-specification production and mitigate wasted materials.
