Elevating food safety with Siemens

Elevating food safety with Siemens



today a critical problem in the food industry is keeping bacteria and pathogens that come off of the processing floor from coming up onto the equipment and getting into the foods and the medicines and the things that we put into our bodies eighty percent of all food recalls go unsolved the biggest open space and food processing right now is foot traffic and a plant for our customers is really keeping the specter of a recall down and hopefully for us to eliminate this because the threat to their bottom line and the threat to their brand reputation is significant clean beam has developed a dry zap technology this is pulse to ultraviolet light that we put into our Footwear sanitization system when a person enters the food processing facility they walk up into our Machine stand on quartz glass and we scan the bottom of their Footwear with this pulsed ultraviolet light and it kills all the pathogens that might be in contact with their foot work we're dealing with a light it's actually 10 times stronger than the Sun it's absolutely safe for everybody and it's one of the most powerful killing agents on the market from the industrial automation perspective we chose Siemens for the cymatic platform the roundup level of integration that that provided our engineers allowed us to reduce the time to market to engineer develop the machine to write the software debug the software and get the electronics up to the point where they needed to be for us to deliver we've changed the HMI panel to a panel PC which marries a industrial personal computer to a flat panel as this application grows in complexity we're able to grow with it so right now there's a carburetor and eventually we're heading to a thumb reader but pretty quickly after that or we facial recognition and by having a industrial personal computer we're able to handle all of the possibilities moving forward and who knows what they'll come up with next ti a portal it's a single platform to do all of your programming the platform itself encapsulate all of the objects that are in the Siemens industrial automation portfolio for any Siemens product it's just drag-and-drop programming for us the regulations are getting stiffer there's yzma Food Safety Modernization Act that's kicking in it's stressing traceability and working with Siemens we realized that we can ultimately gain control of the entire plant for which today has no control at all we're going to use the digital twin moving forward and redesign of the machine we're also going to use our minds fear application for predictive maintenance behavior and analysis the future is going to create more demand for us our timing couldn't be more perfect there is a higher purpose here it's not just about building a machine it's not just about turning a profit it really is focused on how can we keep people from getting ill with these technologies and we actually believe that we're in an absolute wonderful position to move the needle forward in a space that really had no other solutions until Siemens ingenuity for life
