Since 1999, coolback stands for taste and freshness in high-quality baked goods. At the factory in Nuthe-Urstromtal in Brandenburg south of Berlin, 270 employees produce more than 500 million frozen bakery products per year, using traditional and innovative recipes. To this end, the factories must be available around the clock, 24/7.
It is intended to replace the factory operation control, built on the basis of Siemens MP277 1” touch panels, with a modern, future-safe operating concept. The operating control should be designed for continuous use 24/7 and permanent operator intervention.
This involves a baking line that consists of two factory components
• The line with 3 fermentation cabinets, converters, paternosters and cutting systems
• The conveyor oven with two baking levels and feed and delivery systems. The entire baking line contains approximately:
• 103 drives
• 60 actuators/cylinders
• 8 burners
• 220 sensors
A decision was made to use a slim, 100% web-based control system as a touch panel solution. It should be possible to operate this in a platform-independent manner. The solution shall include the following service properties; Complex user management, recipe management, recording of user actions and alarm management.
