Maintenance and Fabrication
At ACM one of the foundations of our successful operations is our Maintenance and Fabrication team. With the knowledge and skills that this team possesses they are able to fabricate, modify, and repair our equipment when needed without having to suffer through long wait times to order in parts or bring in repair specialists. Typical equipment repair lead time for plants is 8-12 weeks, we cut that in half!
The team is intimately familiar with every piece of equipment on the production floor and they can customize equipment to meet our specific needs. They increase our flexibility, ability to customize product, and they help to reduce cost and downtime!
In our Ready-to-Eat room they customized two sets of scales that sit over our rollstock equipment and automatically separate and weigh meatballs before dropping them into the making for packing. These scales have decreased labor, over/under pack sizes, as well as increased over all efficiencies on the line.
Our custom-built steam ovens allow us to cook product in bags, which increases tenderness, moisture, and allows the item to retain its natural juices. These custom ovens exceed standard manufacturing equipment in regard to capacity and efficiency!
