Potato Sizing Fingers- FDA Approved
Problem: Customer was using EPDM rubber fingers in their food processing plant which are not an FDA approved material.
Solution: Due to the shear volume of fingers the customer uses we reverse engineered the finger, built a mold and started injection molding the fingers out of an FDA approved material. Through the initial testing process with the customer we also were able to formulate the resin to provide a more abrasion resistant material VS the old EPDM material they were using. We solved not only the FDA concern but were able to supply a longer lasting finger as well.
