Renold Synergy proves crucial at packaging company
A US packaging manufacturer has cut downtime on much of its plant and machinery by switching to British made, Renold Synergy chain. The company manufactures corrugated boxes for the packaging industry and has to run chain on some of its machinery unlubricated as it comes into direct contact with product that would easily mark.
Chain had to be replaced every two months, which meant regular periods of costly downtime as machinery had to be shut down so that the chain could be replaced. Renold Synergy was specified in an attempt to tackle the problem and it outperformed every other brand the company had tried.
Phil Mueller, maintenance supervisor at Plymouth Packaging said: ‘We are now getting from seven to eight months of total life from Synergy chain, eliminating as many as three downtimes, which is of great cost savings to us. For these reasons we have standardized on Renold Synergy and will use it as a solution on all our machinery.’
