Mitsubishi brings automation and production efficiency to baking
13 April 2013
Mitsubishi Electric offers a wide range of products and services for the baking industry ranging from the automation of simple inverter-controlled dough mixing applications to robot technology for increasing production.
sing the MES-IT interface module. In order to do this, production data and test results are recorded during each stage of production, from individual processes to whole production operations, and transferred in real time directly to higher-level systems.
Mitsubishi Electric robot technology can also help to reduce energy consumption. "Compared with a typical spider robot, if overhead robots are operated continuously – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – you can save up to around a third on your energy bills", explains Jan-Philipp Liersch, Product Manager Robots at Mitsubishi Electric.
More and more bakeries are making the decision to modernise their production facilities in view of the increasing pressure on prices in the bakery market due to stiffer competition, mainly from discounters, and the rising costs of ingredients.
Mitsubishi Electric believes that by making processes more efficient, cost savings can be made which in turn means that profit margins for bakeries can be optimised on the one hand while helping them to remain competitive on the other.
"We have a wealth of experience to call upon when working on applications for the baking industry with a view to optimising productivity and flexibility and reducing production and energy costs", explains Stefan Knauf, Corporate Account Manager Food & Beverage, CPG at Mitsubishi Electric. Demands made on technologies within this sector are particularly high on account of the wide variety of possible variations within manufacturing processes and product requirements.
“In addition to providing a wide range to technologies we can also provide engineering support. A Mitsubishi Electric System Service contract delivers industry leading levels of service and support providing cost savings, improved machine availability and system uptime. Mitsubishi’s solutions do not only cover Mitsubishi’s own products as you would expect, but also third party products to ensure we deliver a full & complete service for your specific business needs."
