Gen4 ensures process stability and enhanced plant availability.
Food manufacturers rely on operational flexibility to meet changing consumer trends, improved quality standards, increased safety demands and ever-present cost and efficiency challenges.
Batch production methods typically involve multi-process production cycles, including energy intensive drying, mixing and milling, heating and cooling operations; we can help you better understand and manage the many complex technology and process interactions to get the best out of your plant.
Gen4’s technical and practical outputs enable a more agile response to production demands, ensure quality standards are met through less product variation and effectively manage energy costs; making your operations increasingly competitive in today’s market.
Our in-process, dry powder particle size analysis and characterisation equipment is an integral part of Gen4’s intelligent monitoring and advanced control systems and ideally suited to closed system manufacturing practices.
- Increased product throughput
- Reduced risk of fouling or blockage
- Improved plant availability
- Reliable and accurate scale up
- Reduced waste streams
- Energy efficiency
Gen4 can drive plant operating improvements
The batch production methods in food processing are no deterrent to lean manufacturing and other continuous improvement methodologies such as Kaisen and can benefit from big data analysis to drive plant operating improvements which maximise returns.
- Efficiency savings across all production cycles
- Latest plant performance equipment and analysis software
- Supporting and enhancing Lean manufacturing and other continuous improvement strategies
