16.02.2018 | author: Timo Schaffrath
Control station applications, industrial image processing and ERP software: The industry IT expert CSB-System presents new solutions for digital food production at the Anuga FoodTec 2018. They allow enterprises to improve resource efficiency, increase transparency and reduce costs.
At the Anuga FoodTec taking place from 20 to 23 March 2018 in Cologne, CSB-System focuses on the factory IT of the future. CSB’s experts inform about networked and automated technologies for the smart and resource-friendly production of food.
CSB linecontrol increases the overall equipment effectiveness
CSB linecontrol is one of the technologies in this field. The control center helps to reduce throughput and lead times, assure constant quality, increase productivity and consequently reduce costs. CSB linecontrol supplies all data about current capacity utilization as well as the performance of the single machines in real time. Bottlenecks and malfunctions in the production and packaging lines are immediately visualized.
As a result, unplanned system shutdowns, downtimes and rejects are reduced while keeping the overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) at a constantly high level. Visit a live demonstration of CSB linecontrol at the Robotik Pack Line stand at the Anuga FoodTec.
CSB-Vision enhances quality and efficiency
Additionally, CSB will present new application examples of industrial image processing with CSB-Vision. Based on image analysis, the CSB-Eyedentifier enables, for example, fully automatic quality controls for raw materials directly in receiving. This ensures reliable test results while work is reduced to a minimum. The camera technology also boosts efficiency through the recognition of containers. For example, the new CSB Unit Recognition captures empties quickly and automatically: Identify, count, document - all of these steps are performed simultaneously without requiring manual work.
ERP for varying business sizes
If you are looking for a new ERP system as data turntable and control center for the “Smart Food Factory”, you should also visit CSB’s stand. CSB informs about its ERP solution for varying sizes and types of companies. CSB Industry ERP is the industry-specific ERP for enterprises of the food and beverage industry that are looking for a turnkey solution for their company. CSB Factory ERP is ideally suited for optimal control of the production facilities in international corporations where a superordinate Group ERP is already in use. For small and medium-size enterprises, the Basic ERP is the ideal solution: Even with the basic version, food companies draw on best-practice processes that cover all industry and market-specific requirements in their standard version. Additionally, CSB users can access specific dashboards to retrieve business indicators, sales figures or production KPIs while on the move using their PC, tablet or smartphone.
The experts from CSB-System and CSB-Automation will be available in Hall 6.1, stand B090-C099 for personal discussions on the most important IT and automation topics.
