Sandy Ping's Problem Solving Experience:
The use of a printed high melting point hot melt adhesive as a heatsink to control the uniform dispersion of fabric softener into the dryer using a dryer added sheet.
The use of high-speed rotogravure printing in a high speed pouching process that increased the maximum production speed from less than 50 feet per minute to over 1000 feet per minute, making it the highest speed pouching process in the world.
The use of polyvinyl acetate (PVA) to make dissolvable 100% full granule and or liquid packets for the use and laundry and dishwashers.
The first use of finite element analysis and computer modeling to identify strengths and weaknesses in plastic squeeze bottles.
Combining a liquid metering system and method of cleaning and absorbing the liquid back into a pad to build the first complete floor cleaning system available for the consumer market which eventually became Swiffer Wetjet.
