We know that manufacturing improves the lives of so many people across the globe, both in terms of important products as well as in terms of earning a good living and supporting families and education. But in some instances, such as with regenerative manufacturing, it can even save a life.
Manufacturing has played a critical role in medicine for a very long time – longer than most people realize. From creating medical devices such as infusion pumps for chemotherapy or prosthetic limbs, manufacturing and medicine are inseparable. Now, with the help of critical technology, manufacturers and scientists are very close to being able to print and manufacture bodily organs, solving a problem that continues to plague medicine – not enough donors. By creating a customized scaffolding, the hope is that the new tissues and organs can be created and then implanted into the body; over 800 clinical trials are underway.
Regenerative manufacturing is an excellent example of two expert ideas working together to create a new reality that then can disrupt how we go about our everyday lives (for the better). In your industry, solving a problem you face daily can be just as collaborative. Here at Komax we have helped solve a variety of problems across manufacturing industries worldwide. Here are just a few examples.
• Komax helped a large farm in Oregon update their animal waste sludge digester in order to improve the quality of their wastewater effluent and capture methane gas for energy production.
• Komax helped a yogurt manufacturer in West Germany vamp up the manufacturing process using static mixers and metering pumps.
• Komax solved an evaporation problem for ConAgra by installing static mixers in all of their plants in North America and converting the mixing process from an open tanked process to a totally enclosed, in-line static mixing system – energy savings was over 95%!
• Komax fixed a critical plugging problem for one of the top oil and gas companies in the world at the height of the oil sands mining boom to ensure that production stayed online and full tilt.
