ChocoBotic was developed by Bühler as part of an Innovation Challenge of a new generation of plants for the "smart" production of chocolate.

ChocoGenius uses interactive tutorials and learning modules to teach how to operate Bühler plants and gives basic information on chocolate manufacturing.

Also, the MyBühler digital platform for ordering spare parts or inquiries about prices and availability.

Marco Zappa, head of Business Unit Chocolate Mass, Bühler, said it is increasingly important for chocolate producers that their plants operate at full capacity.

"With more intelligent process control, we can further improve productivity and achieve even more consistency in product quality," he said.

The increasing availability of sensors, actuators, and IoT technologies can open up opportunities for an even more efficient production in this area.

At Interpack 2017, Bühler is demonstrating how the “Smart Chocolate Factory” will change the manufacturing of chocolate mass in the future showcasing more intelligent process monitoring and control with our DoMiReCo production line.”

With ChocoBotic integrated robotic technology, process steps, which are usually set up sequentially, can be arranged differently and modified to suit different masses, recipes, or products which means manufacturers can respond to changing customer needs and produce smaller batches or seasonal items.

Bühler will display its offerings for making chocolate products, cocoa, nuts, coffee, sweets, biscuits, cookies, crackers, cereal and energy bars, breakfast cereals, and snacks.

It is also hosting The Bühler Networking Days 2017 featuring four themes that impact the food processing industry: sustainability, nutrition, food safety, and the growing importance of the Internet of Things.
