Aerosol Cannister Filling Machine !!!
Just wanted to show all my blog reader how the filling machine looks like.
I happened to be invited to visit a factory specializing in packing liquid product into aerosol cannisters.
While inside the factory I took a photo of the machine that was used to fill the aerosol cannister with the "Super Pheromone" mentioned in my previous article.
I told the factory owner that the machine is nothing new to me.
My background is Mechanical Engineering and I used to be a factory manager at Johnson & Johnson located at Jalan Tandang, Petaling Jaya for more than 5 years.
During those five years I was looking after a manufacturing plant with 300 workers.
I remember producing those Johnson & Johnson baby products such as shampoo, lotions, oils, powders, toothbrush, soap and etc. In addition we also produced sanitary napkins such as Sanita and Stayfree.
During the 3rd year I was posted to Sau Paulo, Brazil for almost 2 months to learn the basic in running a baby napkin manufacturing machine. Brazilian girls were gorgeous. Hmmmmm......
On the way to Brazil we stopped at Taiwan and on the way home at Spain Johnson & Johnson factories.
What surprised me most in Brazil was when all of them were speaking Portuguese while all other countries around them were using Spanish.
In Taiwan, I was very fascinated at the high speed machine producing those sanitary napkins. Beside that those Taiwanese drinks beer better than water.
Anyway I learned a lot of things about manufacturing operation and enjoyed every minute of my time at Johnson & Johnson.
The most difficult was to handle human being.
It was much easier to look after those machines. Trust me !!!
