As our team starts to schedule audits with our hard-working customers for the upcoming summer, we often hear some version of “we do not have time for an audit right now, let’s schedule it after our busy season.” While our Grinder Specialists understand this thought pattern, it always makes us question if this is the best move for that processor. Our team regularly uses the adage, "it's better to tune up a car before the race than after!"
Often during audits, we find many small quick fixes that could result in a much bigger problem down the road if ignored. This means that something as small as a worn pin and or bushings, or bent knife holder arms could mean a complete shut down of a grinder in the middle of peak production. Our Specialists are also experts on recommending spare parts to have on hand, and can suggest small tweaks to get the most out of your equipment. In addition, the Rome Grinder Specialists ensure that the processor’s staff is trained correctly, and they can suggest process improvements that could lead to an increase production.
If you are questioning if you have time to get an audit, even if you are busy, give us a call. With our flexible scheduling, we are able to perform the audit without causing much disruption to your production timeline. Take a look at the top 3 reasons why audits are important in our infographic below.
