Building for Success

Effective communication is the key to a successful dispenser build.  In the process of collecting data, sometimes the facts gathered are not an inclusive interpretation of what the goals and constraints are.  In discovery, not only is it important to discuss production objectives, but also consider the operating environment, supply sources, and forecasted growth.  Time spent developing a program based on miss-information will derail hours of work, and the end product will be a disappointment.

Working together, side-by-side with our customers, a combination of close observation, questioning and data review, will result in real objectives and constraints defined, and then the equipment created will be effective in improving operations and lowering your total cost of goods.  Our mission is to assist with a complete design that satisfies today and accommodates your growth tomorrow.

Replacement Parts.......Cheaper is NOT always Better

With global access to vendor sources, purchasing agents today can scour the internet for deals and negotiate bulk orders for replacement parts.  Unfortunately, this may NOT always lead to savings.

In the case of our fluid dispensers, it is important to order replacement parts directly from Generic Systems, Inc.  Not only does that allow the Technical Department to track maintenance and stay in tune with how the machine is operating, but it will also avoid major setbacks from inappropriate part substitutions.

Some parts used by Generic Systems, Inc. are actually assembled or “modified” to meet the design specs of the dispenser; on the outside, they may appear to be “stock” items, when they are not.  To avoid these costly errors, set Generic Systems, Inc. as your “exclusive” replacement parts vendor, and remember to schedule routine service check-ups.    

Our goal is to keep your production running smooth.

Automated Dispensing in Biomedical Fields

As we move into 2017, one of the most recent trends in automated dispensing is in the biomedical industry.  We see companies striving to create mixtures within very tight tolerances, and the search for precision equipment has stimulated a wave of interest.  “There is a need for accuracy in mixing, as well as expertise in designing the dispensing systems and the controlled environment to house the process.  Over the past couple years, we are seeing a rise in customers reaching out from the research and development industries.  Our Gravimetrix Dispenser is a perfect match for this process.  An Industrial Dispense Machine for custom solvent based formulations integrated into an NFPA approved “MixRoom”, can be the answer to not only production improvements, but employee safety.”

Custom Aerosol Paints...Case Study Highlight

Producers of aerosol paints typically deal with color palettes in the thousands. They support almost all the automotive and industrial colors which have been produced.  The batch sizes can be a 4 pack of aerosol cans to a large run of a thousand cans of a color. The colors are formulated, agitated, filtered and then a special machine loads the batch into the aerosol cans.  See our Case Studies page to read more...
