An electrochemical metal powder producer, an equipment supplier, and a systems integrator work together to maximize a plant's design efficiency.

When you're establishing a new production line, working closely with an equipment supplier and a systems integrator can not only save you money, it can also streamline your entire process and maximize its efficiency. Take this situation, for example: At a pilot plant in the US, an electrochemical metal powder producer wanted to find a way to reduce large annealed metal ingots to a more intermediate size so they could be fed into a micropulverizer to produce a fine powdered metal. To complicate the situation, the ingots could explode when reduced, so the entire process had to be explosion-proof, and the process had to produce an exact material gradation and yield. If the company could successfully solve these problems, it planned to scale up the process and establish a full-scale overseas operation. The company had its own ideas on how to carry out the plan, but when it began looking for suitable equipment, it discovered an equipment supplier and a systems integrator that were able to design a production line that made the new process 30 percent more efficient.
