Bühler, Uzwil, Switzerland, states that at its forthcoming networking days which take place 22-24 August  (see EBS News for week of 13 June) it will showcase its current and future technical developments which embrace the so-called Internet of Things. Innovations include a new interface for the plant control system WinCos®, which offers web-based functionalities, access from anywhere and on any device, improved user experience, customisability and configurable reporting. Operators will benefit from increases in uptime and output, and they will have updated information at their fingertips, whenever needed. “Our machines will have a lot more control loops to be able to optimise the processes themselves”, said Patrik Müller, Bühler’s head of automation grains & food. 


The company has already introduced the next-generation remote monitoring system SORTEX AnywareProTM in March 2016, which leverages the opportunities of the Internet of Things. This system gives customers access to online system data and allows them to keep track of the performance of their optical sorters on any device, including smartphones. This allows operators to pre-empt issues quickly. Similarly, it introduced its latest smart roller mill Antares PlusTM for the grain milling industry. Equipped with various sensors, it continuously monitors the temperature on rolls and bearings as well as the particle size distribution of the ground product. As a result, the roller mill is always adjusted to the optimum grinding degree. Customers benefit from consistent product quality and higher yield.
