Case Study: Custom Solutions for Toll Manufacturing of Wax

Posted: November 6, 2014

Who:

A large, international commercial printer approached Blended Waxes with their issue.

What:

This printer needed small quantities of a highly specific wax blend formed into small bricks. This printer was also experiencing a period of high demand, so they needed larger quantities of this blend, but still at a low cost.

Problem:

To fulfill the printer’s request in the past would require a great deal of oversight during the blending, curing and packaging process. This meant slow turnaround during a period of growing demand by the printer.

Solution:

Blended Waxes worked with a machine vendor to develop a prototype mini-slabbing mechanism. This equipment that was created has the ability to quadruple production of the wax blend bricks while still lowering the cost per pound to the printer.

Conclusion:

Blended Waxes was able to collaborate with the customer and the vendor to come up with a solution. They were able to improve the mechanical application and meet the customer’s growing demand while lowering costs.
