Mixing plant for chocolates with Liquor

Who does not love them, cho­co­la­tes with bran­dy, rum, whis­ky and other finest bran­dies. The exi­sting plant and con­trol system was com­ple­te­ly rene­wed and inte­gra­ted into the modern exi­sting batch system. The pro­cess orders are direct­ly impor­ted via an SQL inter­face and the mate­ri­al use repor­ted back to the ERP system.
