Looking for new manufacturing equipment. What should I be looking for?
The company for whom I work has two mixers for manufacturing toothpaste. These are horizontal paddle mixers intended for mixing powders and these have had vacuum pumps retro-fitted - and these work well enough, they are definitely not fit for purpose and now close to the end of its operational life.
I have to scope out new mixers; but I really need to know what I should be looking for. Whilst it is easy to google the mixers and view the sales pitch for each; there is nothing like practical experience to point out what we should be considering over and above batch sizes/manufacturing times from those with experience in manufacturing
We would be using the equipment for manufacturing both calcium carbonate based pastes and silica based gels.
Thanks in advance.
