In your facilities, do resins and colorants get mixed by warehouse personnel, a blending department, or operators?

Thanks!

bulk batch colors and blends are mixed by the material handlers.
Concentrate feeders and auto bleeding equipment on the machines are set up by the technicians and maintained by the material handlers.
All colors specs are monitored by the quality department.

Missy-

Our warehouse folks do most of the mixing.  If something is added at the machine, a material handler or technician would be adding to the feeder.
