ABB Ability™ for Food & Beverage

Introduction

Food and beverage makers today must manage uncompromising safety, hygiene and traceability while maintaining continuous, reliable operations in extreme temperatures and corrosive environments.

Key Challenges

Maximize quality, consistency and safety

Manufacturers must produce smaller lots of greater quality product in increasingly shorter cycles. The demands are equally high for food and beverage, with time-to-market as a critical component.

Food safety testing has been revolutionized over the past few years, as devices that were once inert tools in production processes now have the capacity to collect information, report it and often take automated actions based on that information. This can result in a more reliable and safe manufacturing process based on redefined information processes.

Meet global demand in a diverse industry

Traditionally, the variability of circumstances and events between manufacturing safety checkpoints were too diverse and too extensive to count, and they often changed not just on a daily basis, but from one moment to the next. Manufacturers only know what they know when they know it, which means companies that know more, and do more with that knowledge, gain an advantage.

We can help you build the flexible, cost-effective production systems needed to manage your risks and gain the most from today’s trends.

How much speed is lost when two machines working side by side – like a robot and a conveyor – cannot coordinate their actions? How many hours of precious production time are wasted waiting for information between separate islands of automation, like production and packaging?…»
