The latest Eildon product is an extra large display, as yet
un-named. Measuring 1.00 by 0.70 metres this display has been specifically designed for
use in large open areas; bottling plants, textiles, warehousing, packaging, etc.: The
first four of these displays have recently been installed at Comer Yarns in Donegal, where
three automatically monitor in Real-Time the efficiency of roving machines, the fourth
monitors the combined efficiency of 18 combing machines. Eildon have secured an order from
United Distillers for 45 displays which will monitor the output and efficiency of bottling
lines on four sites.
Examples of its effectiveness can be found at Comer Yarns and United
At United Distillers where
up to 12000 bottles per hour were coming off the production line management wanted to
ensure that production capacity was maximised and they wanted a user friendly and low
maintenance system to achieve this.
They installed 45 LDUs and found that they achieved a
considerable productivity increase and that the complete system paid for itself very
quickly and that in addition to the motivation and friendly competitiveness it inspired on
the production lines if a line went down the LDU helped to pinpoint the fault and
increased the sense of urgency to get the line up and running again as soon as possible.
Comer International one
of Europe's largest polyester/wool and polyester wool/lycra weaving yarns suppliers
installed 4 LDUs on 18 combing and roving machines so that they could be constantly aware
of the running time,standing time,and efficiency of the machinery.
They found that before the installation they had difficulties in
maintaining the balance through combing and roving but now everyone can see performance at
a glance and take timely action as necessary.
