Basic Materials

The baking process begins with the flour plant, it is a critical input into the business. Creating and maintaining the correct environment at this stage of the process ensures consistency of the dough and hence quality of the final product. Accurate batching of the raw ingredients into the mixer stage also maintains consistency and quality from the beginning and leads to improvements in yield.

Process signals are collected from devices such as ultrasonic level sensors, flow meters, bar codes and load cells/weigh scales, which are fed into the control system. Interfacing to these signals is made easy using Mitsubishi’s wide range of input and remote networking solutions. Full diagnostic and error detection of the network and signals leads to easy maintenance and accurate secure knowledge of stock levels.

Delivery of the flour into the plant is handled using variable speed drive technology, leading to energy saving and reduced stress on the mechanical components of the plant. Accurate speed control enables precise delivery of the ingredients to the mixer stage.

Our IT technology has also enabled bakeries to meet regulatory demands that have forced bakers to produce documented Track and Trace information. Our control systems are able to report this information to higher level systems and give connectivity to ERP and management systems such as SAP™.
