Bühler launches next gen Tubex Pro for advanced weighing solution

Bühler, global solution provider in the supply of flour production plants, pasta and chocolate production lines and animal feed manufacturing installations, has launched Tubex Pro, aiming to bring weighing to the next level, using advanced connectivity and digital applications

In 2017, Bühler introduced the first Tubex. It aims to process three times more measurements than conventional scales.

With its electromechanical drive system, the Tubex has saved its customers up to 95 per cent of energy for the last two years.

A traditional scale can easily consume up to US$10,000 of energy a year. The electromechanical drive aims to enable precise motion and position control.

An integrated diagnostic system helps to detect and repair problems. The scale has a hygienic design, and drive components are wear-free, which substantially lowers maintenance costs. In the two years that Tubex has been on the market, Bühler has carefully gathered customer feedback and made many upgrades – all of this learning is incorporated in the new Tubex Pro.

Building on these advantages, Tubex Pro is now taking digital connectivity and plant control to a new level. Now it is even easier to integrate the scale into plant control systems. It is also simpler to transfer its data into cloud applications in order to analyse and visualise data for better yield management, predictive maintenance or to support customers remotely through Bühler’s global service network.

Tubex Pro will be connected to the Bühler Insights IoT platform powered by Microsoft Azure. It is designed to make it easy for food and feed processors to collect and analyze key production data such as yields, or to trace and track products and raw materials.

The Bühler Yield Management System, a cloud-based monitoring solution is set to provide remote oversight of production data. It visualises and compares deviations from recipes. With it, customers are able to monitor and benchmark their production sites. The digital yield management system is one of the first of its kind and works together with Tubex Pro via Bühler Insights to increase production efficiency and yield.

“Competition and issues like food safety are becoming more demanding,” said Stefan Birrer, head of milling solutions at Bühler.
