Vollrath Racks Up Improved Uptime and OEE with Solarsoft
For more than 136 years, The Vollrath Company has manufactured quality equipment and smallwares for the foodservice industry. In particular, the Vollrath plastic injection molding and light assembly facility in Dane, Wisconsin manufactures warewashing rack systems, tabletop accessories, bar supplies, food preparation products, dispensers and trays, and signage used throughout the foodservice and hospitality industry.
Concerned with the sustainability and lack of functionality of
its existing production monitoring system, Vollrath implemented
Solarsoft's real-time manufacturing execution and production
monitoring solution, Mattec MES.
With Mattec MES, Vollrath has realized major benefits:
- Improved uptime to 91%
- Improved OEE by 10%
- Real-time production and process monitoring
- Real-time SPC
- Minimized response time with alerting system
- Potential annual savings of $728,000 across 14 machines
"Prior to Mattec our uptime was at 79%. This year-to-date we're
averaging 91% uptime. That's just from the alerting capability,
which allows us to get the right personnel over to the affected
machine immediately," says Steve Boeder, Director of Operations at
Vollrath in Dane, WI.
