Potato Sizing Fingers- FDA Approved

Problem: The customer was using EPDM rubber fingers in their food processing plant which are not an FDA-approved material.

Solution: Due to the sheer volume of fingers the customer uses we reverse-engineered the finger, built a mold, and started injection molding the fingers out of 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.
