GA Wintzer Case Study
G.A. Wintzer identified a problem with the methodology used to load trucks with protein meal. Using screw conveyors and a stopwatch, their system had only basic functionality and would often miss the container target weight, forcing the truck to reenter the loading facility after it had been weighed to be either topped off to meet its fill capacity, or worse yet, partially unloaded to meet legal transport weight limits.
Thayer Scale – Hyer Industries is a privately held manufacturing & technology company, specializing in the manufacturing of equipment used for the continuous weighing and feeding of bulk materials for a wide variety of industries. The company has one of the longest uninterrupted operating records for engineering and manufacturing specialized continuous weighing and feeding equipment in the United States.
Founded in 1949 in a garage in Rockland, Massachusetts and relocated shortly thereafter to the neighboring town of Pembroke, the company has maintained its original business philosophy, product line specialization, and operating structure for more than a half century. Employee turn-over has consistently been very low permitting the company to develop a highly experienced workforce in each functional area of the business. This high degree of stability, continuity of leadership and laser-sharp product focus has been fundamental to the continued technical advancement of our uniquely designed conveyor belt scales and gravimetric feeders. It has allowed the company to grow from its early roots to its position today as one the global leaders in the continuous weighing industry.
