Automation solutions for food and beverage manufacturing operations
Helping to achieve operational readiness
ANDRITZ helps manufacturing operations around the world bridge the gap between concept and production to achieve operational readiness - quickly, safely, reliably, and ahead of the curve.
The control system in a modern plant touches every piece of equipment and instrument in the plant, like a nervous system touches every muscle and receptor in the body. Nothing will be conveyed, ground, classified, pumped, processed, or dried until the plant's "nervous system" is operationally ready. In short, the control of a plant can mean the difference between profit and loss.
That's why ANDRITZ has an engineering group that focuses on the design of electrical, control, and instrumentation systems. These disciplines typically account for a small portion of the total project budget, but their importance to the operation of a plant is paramount.
We structure our scope of supply to fit commercial needs, from engineering to engineering and equipment supply, to engineering, procurement, and construction. Whatever the situation, ANDRITZ has the people, the patents, and the proven tools to ensure that a plant is operationally ready.
Our dynamic simulator, IDEAS, has been used to simulate a wide variety of plants that process food and beverage products such as peanut butter, potato chips, cookies, liquor, and coffee. IDEAS has helped these plants achieve start-ups that are faster, smoother, safer, and more economical.
