Bick's Slice Line

When jars would break on the line, All the product had to be thrown away as there was no quick way to stop the line. I created a team to rectify this. I ended up putting in a stop pull cable the entire length of the packing area. Now when a jar was broken, the line could be shut down immediately and as per GMP practice, 10 ft of product would then have to been thrown out as compared to the entire line. I also looked at reasons for the glass breakage. It was due to too much line pressure. I installed photo eyes that better controlled the empty glass feed. As a result, the line produced at 150% and they had to rewrite production expectations.
