IBC Filling System Exter
Reduction of operator actions
The process of filling the IBC (Intermediate Bulk Container: a container for liquids of 1,000 liter) in the concerning factory was not efficient. The operator was supposed to manually pour the desired amount of caramel into the IBC using buckets. To automate this process, a pump with scale and a plc was installed. All the operator has to do is entering the desired amount of caramel in liter and the system pumps the correct amount in the IBC.
The filling system results in a more efficient working process in terms of higher employee satisfaction and faster handling of the process.
