Gauging temperature and vibrations improve milling

| By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey

This company’s Insights platform is connected to the new temperature and vibration management (TVM) system (photo), which provides essential information on grinding processes based on proprietary algorithms. TVM detects critical operational conditions early so that proper action can be taken. Accurate management of grinding processes helps maintain the best product quality and consistency. Precise settings reduce energy consumption and product waste. The launch of TVM represents another significant step towards the fully digitalized and automated SmartMill. The TVM service is continuously developed further to maximize impact. Future features, for example, will include more advanced recommendations for automatic adjustments based on recipes. — Bühler AG, Uzwil, Switzerland
