Secure, rapid, unambiguous
Delivery of raw materials can take place in a number of ways. Minor ingredients are supplied in sacks, dry components arrive in tankers by road or rail and moist materials by lorry. Mechanical and pneumatic transport systems are used as appropriate in order to provide rapid and secure transfer of the raw materials. Cullet is added directly from the production or by means of front end loaders from the cullet storage area.
EME has developed a clever identification system based on bar codes and RFID to facilitate smooth handling of the raw material deliveries. This allows accurate identification of the arriving raw material and clear assignation to the correct storage silo, eliminating any potential for mistakes. The labour requirement of the system is very low.
