The signs of the US labor shortage quite literally surround us. Help Wanted placards adorn storefronts and street corners while newspaper headlines proclaim the labor shortage is hindering the American business boom.
Food processors, like other businesses, now need to accomplish more with fewer people, and on the food processing line, FPS’s Vibratory Alignment products achieve that goal.
For example, FPS recently replaced a wire belt conveyor with a vibratory alignment conveyor on the batter/breading line of a large chicken processor. The line was using 10 people per shift to spread and align tenders at the exit of a drum breader. FPS’s vibratory alignment solution reduced the number of shift employees to four, freeing up 18 employees over three shifts to address other production needs within the plant.
