06 February 2023

An automated inventory solution developed by BinMaster is tailored for the plastics industry. By combining software and level sensor capabilities, ResinView keeps plant personnel safe from climbing silos, makes purchasers more effective, and improves processing efficiency by always having the right resins on hand.

The inventory management software is offered through a cloud-based subscription program based upon theSource: BinMasterSource: BinMaster number of silos being monitored. Automated alerts delivered via text or email help ensure that silos or hoppers never run empty and interfere with production. Providing resin suppliers access using vendor managed inventory allows them to be proactive in ensuring supplies are adequate to prevent shortages.

ResinView can be used by compounders, extruders, injection molders, rotational molders and refiners — any operation that is storing resin pellets, powders, flakes, liquid resins or plasticizers. It can also be used to monitor inventory levels in pellet dryers, day bins and coolers. ResinView is highly scalable for a single location or multiple sites and any number of silos.
