#F&BTechTalks: Discover new optimization potential with innovative concepts

Discover proven digitalization concepts for existing and new systems in the food and beverage industry, with which you can secure competitive advantages. In the practice-oriented webinars you will learn how our customers were able to optimize their systems successfully and how you can implement these findings for your company.

Increase productivity thanks to the integration of production and packaging lines: Many production and packaging lines consist of stand-alone machines that are purely mechanically coupled by conveyors and sensors. The lack of integration leads to unnecessary downtime, makes efficient diagnostics difficult and reduces the efficiency of the line. In the webinar, we will present the line integration concept developed by Siemens, which uses a standardized approach to make all relevant processes within the lines visible on a central line monitoring system.

While the plant structure should not be changed and the production processes should not be affected, productivity must be increased. By using WinCC OA IOT Suite, this can be realized with little effort. IOT Suite was developed to integrate existing systems from different manufacturers in Industry 4.0 concepts with the latest technology and innovative approaches in the food and beverage industry. The solution is scalable for simple as well as complex automation applications and can be put into operation in less than one hour.

The requirements for tracking and tracing in food and beverage industries are similar to other process industries like pharma and chemical.

Even if the products are not as cost intensive and critical as the products of other industries, product safety and production according to the rules of the food and drug regulations become more and more important. By recording material movements with Opcenter Execution Process, the history of a product can be build up. The entire process of the production is transparent, and this ensures the reliability of sustainability claims, in the areas of human rights and labor.
