Why Automate?

Automation rocks, it opens the doors to a more efficient, productive, and flexible work model, with technology scaled to any sized brewery. Some of the main benefits are:

  • Reducing the time employees need to complete their work and the number of employees needed for a task. Automation gives you more hours to focus on work that drives profits and economic success.
  • Automated processes help with compliance, regulations and audit trails.
  • Automation puts information at your finger tips to help with decision making.

Here at V-Brew, we specialise in custom making control cabinets with an edge. Brewers used to have access to sensor data in isolation, but now more and more data is being brought together through the whole process, allowing brewers to have a live digital dashboard about the health of the product.

As technology rapidly develops as we race into the 2020s, so do we, with our touch screen Weintek human-machine interface, custom built to your brewery. The screen can display tables, graphs and even emails. All this information is available after each cycle. This data driven brewing has uses in decision making, with optimal sampling times and reductions in fermentation times all possible through enhanced data collection.

This enhanced data collection could be what drives forward your brewery into the future. Find our contact details and talk to V-Brew today.
