Bizerba goes Smart for every customer segment
Designed for every customer segment, digital solutions offered by the company are lead to measurable efficiency increases and more sustainable processing in the food industry.
One of the pieces of equipment that were exhibited at IFFA is the B3 wrapper, an innovative, brand new solution for preparation rooms. Enabling improved communication and data-exchange processes, interconnected devices like the B3 lead to increased production effectiveness, quality and flexibility, thereby saving resources, cost and time.
The process chain from placing the order in the online shop to the processing and servicing steps at the fresh-food counter to the final pick-up or delivery stage efficiently connects the ordering and servicing processes in the retail sector and merges online shops with stationary trading. By reasonably packaging fresh food, the B3 fully-automatic packaging and price labeling machine makes for an appealing product presentation.
Along with it comes the brand new A660 slicer, representing another process step that is streamlined for customers because a subsequent weight check can be eliminated by slicing towards a specific target weight. Weight overage is measurably reduced by coupling the weighing function with the slicing function. Thanks to its automatic gripper, the A660 is also ideal for pre-packaged goods.
Going towards Industry 4.0 goals through Intelligent Management and Monitoring solutions, Bizerba hopes to help in minimizing food waste in the future by offering its customers the Food Waste Tracking software, among other intelligent applications. Using Bizerba‘s Food Waste Tracking, production personnel can already be sensitized to treat food sustainably. Using tracked food, employees can identify the amount of unplanned food waste.”, mentioned the company.
As food production is characterized by strict monitoring and verification obligations, all relevant data must be available at the push of a button. In addition, digitization enables new, time-saving solutions in the maintenance sector as well.
With BRAIN2 industry software and RetailControl retail software, processes can be monitored and analyzed through every step. Based on factors including performance, quality and availability, BRAIN2 analyzes the effectiveness of the entire facility, resulting in transparency. Furthermore, the entire device pool can be monitored and maintained using the RetailControl management software, enabling installations and updates to be controlled in a centralized and automated manner.
Even augmented reality plays a role in serving the clients, as Augmented Services is available as a remote maintenance concept via the view of production workers. „Using their smartphones or smart glasses, Bizerba service technicians can see exactly what the employees of the customer see, enabling them to give precise instructions on how to fix a technical problem without being on site. Using practicable AR applications, Bizerba is already able to reduce the response times for customers, significantly improving machine availability for retailers and manufacturers. In areas including product development, maintenance and customer support, Augmented Services enable significant considerable efficiency improvements and cost reductions”, claims the company.
