LumoVision, the data-driven maize sorting technology, finds its way into the feed processing industry. Bühler has launched the multifunctional single-screw extruder PolyOne for the pet food and aqua feed industry.

Bühler has launched its new single-screw extruder PolyOne today, designed to consistently deliver high product quality for the pet food and aqua feed industries.

“PolyOne enables our customers to maximise their productivity, and helps to prevent product recalls,” said Christoph Naef, head of business unit nutrition at Bühler Group. PolyOne is set to meet the highest food and feed safety standards due to its perfected hygienic design.

Kubex T: High-capacity pellet mill

Kubex T aims to provide highest process transparency due to an application that connects it to Bühler Insights, a cloud platform for the food and feed industry. A dashboard visualises data for customers, making their processes transparent.

This allows for seamless tracking and brings production downtimes to a minimum. Algorithms and Bühler experts help millers to optimise the mill’s parameters. With it, customers achieve higher profits and lower production costs due to innovations in intelligent process optimisation.

Customers will use up to 20 per cent less energy compared to conventional pellet mills, benefit from high production capacities of up to 80 tonnes per hour, and a customer-driven design, all of which are the result of extensive Bühler research and development in cooperation with leading feed millers.

Bühler LumoVision: data-driven grain sorting technology

Bühler showcases its sorting technology for the feed industry. LumoVision aims to minimise toxic contamination in maize and improves yield, by identifying and removing cancer-causing, aflatoxin-infected grains.

Developed in partnership with Microsoft, LumoVision is a significant advance for the maize processing industry in its fight against toxic metabolites produced by fungal moulds called mycotoxins, the most poisonous of which is aflatoxin.

The innovation is expected to eliminate up to 90 per cent of contaminated maize. “Advances in digital technology, together with our sorting, food, and feed safety expertise, make this an unrivalled system that contributes to solving a major global security challenge,” said Matt Kelly, managing director of digital technologies at Bühler.

Aflatoxin is classified as a primary human carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer. Approximately 500mn people worldwide are at risk of exposure to it and it is estimated to cause up to 155,000 cases of liver cancer every year and contribute to stunting the growth of millions of children.
