To eliminate the production errors which can occur during the weighing, dispensing, mixing of raw materials and packing, UnityF8 has a range of solutions which automate the business processes within the factory.
Factory automation improves efficiency in food manufacturing to bring many cost saving benefits:
Reduces labour costs
Reduces waste, spoilt batches and stock holding
Improves operational visibility and control
Increases productivity and throughput
Remove manual processes and paperwork at critical control points
UnityF8’s factory floor data capture (FFDC) helps to give you new levels of management reporting and traceability. Functions of the system include:
Touch screen technology – robust and easy to use
A record of factory floor staff activity – through the use of swipe cards
A record of actual weights – enabling ‘actual’ cost analysis
Real-time updates against the plan
Real-time management and OEE reporting
Solutions offered within UnityF8:
Weigh scale integration
Automates the recording of weight data from desktop scales and weigh stations and allocates the stock to the production order.
Automated ingredient dispensing
Automates the dispensing of ingredients from bulk containers into batch bins and allocates the stock to the production order.
Silo and mixer integration
Automates the accurate delivery of raw materials to mixers and for bulk ingredients, records the delivered weights and allocates the stock to the production order.
Vessel level control
Continuously monitors weights in bulk vessels to stop raw materials running empty. An alarm is triggered when reserves are running low, to avoid production delays.
