An ingredient manufacturer had damaged 20 foot mixing logs that mixed up starch. The customer gave us a tight schedule of 5 days to remove the damaged gears, coupling, bearings, and all bent and broken paddles. Basically receive it Monday and return them Friday! Horner Machining Services worked with Fan and Fabrication to get the job done. Machining straightened the shafts and fixed the gears and bearings. Fan and Fabrication laser cut and installed 64 new stainless steel paddles on the mixing logs. It took both divisions and three shifts through the week to make the deadline but Horner did! Thanks to everyone involved in this project for your hard work! Do you know what starch is? Industrial starch is extensively used in convenience foods to improve crispiness, reduce oil absorption, and can improve the overall quality of the food product.
