Digital Conversion Era Ahead of Milling Industry

Following the historical steps of mechanization, mass production and automation, today the new era has focused on higher productivity with digitalization in industrial processes. IoT is expected to allow machines, systems and even plants to connect and communicate with each other for an integrated process management.

As an example, silo systems are used to store grains under optimum conditions. Today, temperature and humidity values can be measured in silos to sustain the optimum storage environment. Imagine if they could learn to adapt themselves according to the changing ambient conditions?

At Henry Simon Milling, as the first step of digital conversion, we have implemented Advanced Sensor TechnologyTM which brings higher reliability, better operational safety and consistent quality in milling process.
