I’m sure I have blogged about similar topics before but I’m going ahead with this anyway. Have you ever bought something and after using it a few times say to yourself, I really wish they would have done this or I wish this had this feature. I do that quite often, more often that my wife really cares for. Normally it ends up with me being in the garage or the basement working on whatever it is for several hours and possibly even breaking whatever it was I was working on. Well, I don’t just do that at home.
Two of our newest Industrial Housekeeping products were created from our own employees using them and seeing something that could make it better. The easiest to see this with is our Chip Trapper System.
Our Reversible Drum Vac Systems were around for a couple decades when someone decided to figure out a (patented) way to filter all the chips and solids out of the coolant we were processing. So now, instead of just sucking the coolant out, we are able to filter the coolant and reuse it up to four times longer in our machines.
It is continuous improvements and being willing to listen to recommendations that make things like the Chip Trapper possible. If you have one of our products and see a better idea, feel free to let us know, it may even be something that we could do on a custom basis for you.
