Tubex Pro smart process scale system

Tubex Pro is a smart process scale system that self optimizes its measuring algorithm according to product flow characteristics and the plant environment. It produces a real-time stream of production data and status information, which can be visualized remotely using Bühler Insights and seamlessly integrated into Bühler’s advanced Yield Management System. All data is processed in order to track production, optimize scale performance, and reveal opportunities to improve the yield and performance of the plant.

Collecting and interpreting process scale data is providing a deep insight into production losses, improvement potential, and the influence of input material variations. With hygienic design, a high level of food safety and the potential to securely log product data using blockchain technology, Tubex Pro with Bühler Insights, supports safe food production with full transparency and traceability along the food value chain.

Bühler’s Yield Management System enables yield monitoring from anywhere at any time. Based on its integration with Bühler Insights, it makes deviations between different recipes visible and comparable. Moreover, various production sites can be monitored and benchmarked.

Both the additional transparency and push notifications help food producers to react quickly if deviations become apparent. That way, a constantly high yield can be achieved – which is crucial for running a profitable food processing business. Bühler’s Yield Management System integrates data from key components of the process chains such as the Tubex Pro scales directly into Bühler Insights, independent of process control systems.
