Optimal operation, 24/7

The DoMiReCo line will always run in its optimal operation mode, almost independent of raw material variations or operator skills. This typically leads to significant savings by reducing downtime, rework and energy demand.

Controlling your most important parameters

Miscellaneous smart sensors and actors enable the system to continuously monitor, control and optimize your most important parameters such as particle size, roll coverage etc.

Smart decision-making built-in

The anytime, anywhere available process and machine KPI’s enable you to further investigate your line, production and equipment. It will help you to better predict and control your final product quality, process sustainability and machine maintenance.  

In short, the Self-optimizing Chocolate Line is an easy way to enjoy full transparency, improved quality and reduced costs, giving you that all important competitive edge.
