Takes the biscuit
04 March 2013
Foxs Biscuits has improved the quality of its products and potentially reduced the amount of wastage that old slip-ring motors gave and has also improved its ability to develop new products following the installation of an ABB standard drive on one of its dough mixers.
The greater torque of the ABB motor also leads to higher reliability of the mixer. Previously, if the company was trying a dough that was harder than usual, the old slipring motors would not have the torque to turn the mixing paddles and the motor would trip out.
Using the new motor means that the maintenance engineers need to spend less time on them and the production department has a lot more confidence that the mixer will perform correctly as required and less production time will be lost.
