Automation solutions for the brewing industry

A growing range of products, greater efficiency and the legal obligation to provide supporting documents leads to the continuous introduction of new requirements for the brewing industry. The complex production processes must be controlled, monitored and evaluated in an integral and secure manner.

The development of intelligent automation solutions for the brewing industry demands more than just system know-how. Industry experience and in-depth knowledge about structures and processes in a brewery are just as important. Thanks to more than 30 years of experience in the field of brewery automation, we know how to meet the extensive requirements of this industry. Our industry-driven staff structure, consisting of highly qualified process engineers, electrical engineers, food technologists, computer scientists and master brewers, also deserve a special mention.

Furthermore, with our in-house developed process control system brewmaxx we boast one of the best known solutions for the integrated process automation of breweries. Our control system brewmaxx controls breweries with an annual output of more than 250 million hectolitres – almost one fifth of global beer production. brewmaxx has actually become the standard system in some of the world’s largest brewery groups.

We have been engaged in intensive dialogue with specialised universities for many years and promote knowledge transfer of process control technologyautomation and MES solutions for breweries. A prime example of this is our successful cooperation with the Technical University of Munich (TUM), which has resulted in the joint development and implementation of the “Weihenstephan Standards for operating data acquisition at filling plants”.

brewmaxx is now used by more than 750 breweries worldwide.
