October 12, 2018 - ABB launched a Food & Beverage (F&B) Assessment Portfolio aimed at helping F&B manufacturers improve processes by giving them a better understanding of their plant, from power to automation to digital readiness. The company will highlight its Assessment services and expertise in booth N-4930 at Pack Expo from October 14–17.
ABB’s F&B Assessments are customized to individual plants but center around a plant’s readiness and utilization of three key factors: power, automation and digitalization. ABB experts conduct a comprehensive plant assessment on relevant processes, including water consumption, power generation, energy efficiency, power quality and electrification. ABB even offers a digital maturity assessment to help customers evaluate their digital infrastructure and readiness to take advantage of ABB Ability solutions. Results are then analyzed and a report is produced, allowing an improvement plan to be scheduled and implemented.
In food and beverage manufacturing, maintenance is often the largest single controllable expenditure. For many businesses, the cost of unnecessary maintenance is the same as total plant profit loss for one day of no production. ABB’s F&B Assessment portfolio aims to give manufacturers a better understanding of how to improve production and operational performance.
ABB is a specialist in electrification products, robotics and motion, industrial automation and power grids, serving customers in utilities, industry and transport & infrastructure globally. Continuing a history of innovation spanning more than 130 years, ABB operates in more than 100 countries with about 147,000 employees.
