Traditional food production areas are generally characterised by mixing und dosing processes which are occasionally controlled manually or semi-automatically. The introduction of a centralised, higher-order automation solution means that support is required to achieve the greatest possible flexibility in connection with manual and semi-automatic production processes. This necessary requirement as well as quality assurance, materials management, traceability and interfaces to ERP systems must be an integral part of a cutting-edge process control system which controls and monitors food production areas.
Our control system Plant iT offers the required flexibility and integration while meeting the requirements of EU Regulation 178/2002. The modular process control system benefits from all the experience we have gained from more than 30 years in the food industry. We can therefore present our customers a control system which provides suitable functions - from operating data acquisition through process control technology and batch system to functions for complete, company-wide production management (MES - Manufacturing Execution System), as well as the integration of ERP, LIMS and maintenance systems.
Numerous companies, such as BASF, BK Guilini, Glockenbrot Bäckerei, Jowa, Kerry and Unilever, have relied on our process control system Plant iT for many years.
