Automation of flour mills and grain management

Flour mill automation: adapting to change

When we talk about milling and grain management today, we are talking about automated flour mills, or in other words, completely automated manufacturing management systems. From receiving through processing to shipping, everything must be tracked and monitored by a system that ensures traceability and precise execution at every stage of production.

Whether to address risk factors, comply with new standards, respond to demands for products diversification, or mitigate the reality of intensifying competition with large players, this activity sector has no choice but to adapt to changes imposed by a market in constant evolution. This market is also facing a shortage of workers, which constitues a major challenge to maintaining a constant quality independently of the workforce in place. 

This is why the milling operations of today that want to be present tomorrow understood that they must move forward with automating their mills and must constantly invest in their facilities to stay in the race, and lead the pack. We are here to work beside you as your operations evolve. We have much to offer to corporate leaders who want to be one step ahead by developing automation strategies for their mills. 

The objectives are to facilitate maintenance and operation of mill systems and to put in place the technologies needed to enable continuous improvement of internal processes, simplify human interventions, and make operations accessible to a wider range of workers by transferring a large portion of the decision-making burden to control systems. We have all the tools to implement or upgrade your control system to meet the highest standards of modern industry.
