The Internet of Things: Dream or Reality?

IoT is real! Bühler’s digital services create real value for customers, already today.

Line monitoring with WinCos® PocketPlant

PocketPlant significantly decreases unplanned downtime and thereby push output for customers. How can that be achieved? Customers can remotely monitor the status of their production lines inside and outside the plant for a faster operator intervention. Access through mobile devices makes this solution very flexible and agile.

Performance dashboards of the chocolate production

Would you like to compare the overall equipment effectiveness, quality, availability or the performance of your lines? The performance dashboards allow our customer to do just that.

Machine health monitoring

Would you like to improve your overall equipment effectiveness, also for older equipment? Bühler offers straightforward digital technology that can be easily installed on new and existing machines to make them smarter. Temperatures, vibrations and further relevant parameters can be measured where and when necessary. Intelligent algorithms, based on Bühler’s IoT platform, will analyze the data and generate actionable insights.

Smart validation services

When technology and process know how come together. The smart validation service continuously monitors the thermal kill step in dryers for nut processing and gives our customer the overview if the targeted process conditions (temperature, time, moisture) were successfully met. The customer knows immediately if the product needs re-processing. This increases food safety, save costs, and minimizes business risks.
