What did Bühler want to achieve with the new machine concept?

  • Increased machine throughput
  • Reduced installation times
  • Fewer error sources upon activation

Bühler AG on the new machine concept and working with Murrelektronik:

  • The decentralized installation concept helped to significantly reduce our refiners’ production cycle times.
  • There was a 60% reduction in both the installation and connection of the electrical components
  • The size of the control cabinet was halved and the tricky process of detecting short circuits in long cable bundles was eliminated.
  • We continue to benefit from the standardization of machine activation – ten years after it was introduced.
  • The decentralized installation concept allows for intelligent and efficient engineering and is applied both to new series machines and individual retrofit systems

Future innovation potential:

IO-Link, diagnostic analysis tools
