Increased line efficiency for a constantly high OEE

The two stage refining process gets self-optimized to highest throughput and constant quality by implementing smart sensor systems and communication between pre-finer and finer.

24/7 quality control of product properties

The combination of different smart sensor systems allows a reliable particle size measurement and enables a particle size control along the roll. Most accurate and reliable control of the most important quality parameter in chocolate production: particle size.

Full transparency of quality, performance, and line availability

Sensor technologies make it possible to measure process performance, quality inline, and continuously. Resulting KPI dashboards are available anywhere any time.

Operational cost savings on resources, energy and service expenses

The five roll refiner is running 24/7 in the ideal operation mode, independent on raw material variations or operator skills level.
