The dairy industry must comply with strict and changing requirements for food hygiene, food safety and environmental standards. Production must run at a consistent level of high quality while costs are kept down. Dairies are nowadays often large units with factory style production, and they have large number of machines, valves and motors that must be operated. Malfunctions and errors affect efficiency and product quality as does timing of each critical production step.
Automation ensures a high and consistent product quality from intake of raw materials through the entire manufacturing process to the end product, and the most significant benefits are:
· Food safety, consistent product quality and reliability
Automated monitoring and supervision of equipment and processes ensures that machine malfunctions will be stopped, and prevents errors such as unexpected machine overload and incorrect mixing.
· Production economy, production control and flexible production
Automatic and precise control of the production reduces e.g. product loss which benefits the economy. The control system enables a flexible production with various production alternatives and easy implementation of new recipes.
