Mark, how fast do you fill 30,000 pounds by yourself? What sizes do you pack? Do you set yourself production goals? When I worked in the factory there were skilled operatives who were on a production bonus system on the non-automated lines.
On the non-automated lines it was a thing of beauty to see an operative filling a can of adhesive. The can would be filling at a rate such that he or she would label an empty can, and screw a cap on the previously filled can as the current can was filling. When the valve was closed there would be a "tail" of adhesive stringing from the valve; This was cut off by the operative on the next can's lip so no mess went on the can and the drip went into the new can before the valve was opened . Poetry in motion.
