Comprehensive factory automation brings supreme control

Scalable MES functions allow communication with Entreprise Resource Planning (ERP), Quality Control (QC) and maintenance systems to optimize work flows. Product quality monitoring and statistics can enhance your food safety, traceability and validation. KPI management (such as line Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), energy or availability) is tailored to your facility. Truck and warehouse management can all be optimized for efficiency and safety. Meanwhile, communication interfaces integrate with upstream and downstream processes to improve performance without affecting those systems. 

Enables agile working, operability and flexibility

The intuitive operator interface will guide your people in best practice and minimize errors. Mobile control on any device can free up operators to oversee wider tasks. The whole Mercury system is independent of your device hardware – reducing investment costs and giving you full flexibility.

IoT connectivity future-proofs your investment

Mercury is fully connected to Bühler’s IoT platform, thus enabling digital services and upcoming data analytics. Mercury will also enable you to take advantage of any number of digital services in the future, as they become more popular.
