Retrofitting old machines for cost savings
23 Oct 2019
At the Industrial Transformation Asia-Pacific (ITAP) 2019 event, SP unveiled a suite of innovations to help food manufacturers, stay relevant and productive in an increasingly digitised economy. One innovation by SP’s Food Innovation & Resource Centre (FIRC) is a cost-effective solution to retrofit existing machines with no digital capabilities with little or close to no downtime. These sensors and systems will allow food manufacturers to detect faults early, while speeding up and increasing the accuracy of food safety inspections. The systems are also able to monitor the performance of the machine, especially the integrity of moving parts that require frequent cleaning, and send out an alert for preventive maintenance. SP’s FIRC manager, Terry Tan, shared how retrofitting old machines can benefit companies.
