Understanding the process variables related to your induction sealing process is an important step in improving your OEE (Overall Equipment Efficiency).
According to Paul Zepf of Zarpac Inc, OEE is most simply stated as:
"Output divided by the scheduled time multiplied by the normal production rate. The answer, in percent, looks at what should have been made (or packaged) versus what actually was." (from Healthcare Packaging Oct 2008)
By understanding how to address and control induction sealing variables, companies can achieve a perfect seal every time.
The process of developing a perfect seal solution includes matching the cap, liner and sealer; setting up an operating window; and establishing testing methods for identifying a good seal.
