Digital solutions add value in meat processing
environment for modern food processing plants today is characterised by cost
pressure, a highly dynamic approach and complexity. Plant and production
managers frequently feel forced to pursue competing aims under difficult
conditions: stringent quality requirements coupled with ambitious cost targets,
quickly fluctuating demands and changing operating staff are typical
Handtmann Maschinenfabrik offers intelligent digital solutions for a wide variety of requirements that provide effective support and create real added values. The Handtmann Monitoring Function HMF, for example, independently stops the filling and portioning line if quality-relevant parameters are exceeded or not met. Misproduction can thus be reduced or even altogether avoided. The Handtmann Data Interface HDI features a standardised interface for easy communication with data processing system for process optimisation. The Handtmann Line Control HLC allows status monitoring of complex automated production lines in real time, as well as automatic programme change for the entire production line via the vacuum filler’s control system.
The Handtmann Communication Unit HCU has since many years been the leading Industry 4.0 solution for the planning, control and optimisation of the filling department. In the new version, OEE key figures (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) can be calculated for the analysis of added value.
The IFFA will also see the premiere of the Handtmann Machine Cockpit HMC, an online tool that stores defined data such as operating hours, pressure curves, error messages and machine status in the cloud. An up-to-date overview is therefore also available on mobile devices at any time – almost in real time! Critical information such as due date of the next maintenance are not only available to the customer but also to the Handtmann contact responsible for service scheduling. Machines that are maintained in good time help avoid unplanned downtimes and keep operating costs low.
