Innovative Plastic Film Producer Saves Time and Reduces Costs and Waste With Slice
Next Generation Films has implemented Slice® Safety Cutters in several areas of its plastic film production process. During the final stage of its proprietary film production workflow, Next Generation workers must separate one plastic sheet into two, which are destined for different winders. Phil Hiser, Next Generation's Safety Coordinator, states that the Slice Safety Cutter is the "perfect tool" for this application. In fact, he says, "Using your product, our machines are able to be put into production about three minutes faster". More efficient production saves money and time for this busy film producer.
The best part about the Safety Cutter is that we have eliminated the chance of laceration injuries during these tasks!
Slice Safety Cutters also help Next Generation cut down on waste, literally. During production, operators occasionally need to manually cut waste material off the wound core. With traditional utility blades, this process creates an average 15 pounds of waste. With Slice Safety Cutters, that waste is reduced to 2.3 pounds or less.
According to Hiser, "The best part about the Safety Cutter is that we have eliminated the chance of laceration injuries during these tasks!" The partnership between Next Generation Films and Slice is a perfect example of what technology and innovation can do to improve workplace safety and lower production costs.
