Noodle processing: realize automation

noodles are usually in strip or strip shape and are a mixture of wheat flour, water and salt. Noodles are one of the most common foods in Asia and are popular in China, South Korea, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia. With the increasing number of immigrants 13 It should be stable when changing the loading of the experimental machine. With the gradual opening of the Chinese market, noodles are becoming popular throughout the Far East. Nowadays, the demand for noodles in western countries is also rising significantly

"spaghetti" and "noodle" are sometimes used as the same word, but there are great differences between the two foods. Hard wheat flour is used for pasta, while soft wheat flour is used for noodles; Not only that, but also their processing methods are different. In recent years, according to the preferences of those who develop a 3D printer configured with multiple materials according to different markets and consumption, noodles have also developed some new varieties accordingly. The raw materials include wheat, rice, potatoes and buckwheat. The processing methods are divided into drying and frying. There are also many choices for cooking and seasoning methods

new noodle processing line

pavan group is a world-renowned design and manufacturer of automated food processing equipment. Not long ago, they manufactured and installed a set of noodle processing lines for a large multinational customer, with a capacity of 1500 kg per hour

this processing line can be used to produce pre cooked dry noodles, with a mass of 67.5g per bundle of noodles. The whole process includes mixing, layering, cooking, cutting, drying, cooling and packaging. The innovation of the solution provided by pavan is that the whole processing process has been automated: the traditional manual noodle making process has been completely replaced by automation, while all the characteristics of the manual process have been retained

the whole process includes mixing, layering, cooking, cutting, drying, cooling and packaging

as a result, the supply was reduced. In addition, the company selected two work areas 3 and 6 of the electrolysis plant 2 as the work lines of the experimental work area. The packaging system was also customized according to the customer's requirements: the folded square noodles were put into a packaging bag with a capacity of 400g

drive and automation

in order to meet the needs of customers, pavan chose Siemens SINAMICS S120 motion control system. Known for its flexibility, this system is an ideal driving solution for many application environments: it can be used in decentralized or single axis independent mode (AC/AC) and centralized configuration mini version (AC/DC), in which the control of recovering energy from the motor is very critical. Pavan tried to find a system with very high integration of automation software and hardware, so that it can not only optimize programming and assembly time, but also manage and maintain through the only platform. Siemens' totally integrated automation system adopts drive, PLC and HMI platforms, and is equipped with various levels of diagnostic functions: from PLC software to communication network status, to drive diagnosis and configuration

pavan's noodle processing line has high output and almost zero error rate. The whole processing line includes multiple processing equipment: each processing equipment must be accurately synchronized with other equipment: This is why pavan chose Siemens' 1FK7 servo motor. 1FK7 is connected to SINAMICS S120 through drive Cliq. The digital communication bus adds self-reading capability to all motor nameplates, so that errors will not occur during assembly and replacement: the motor model and serial number can be automatically verified by the system, and the operator will not make errors in the production process

Siemens' latest drive system solves some problems that usually occur in previous technology, thus opening up a new concept of mechanical application. In the food industry, this means increasing productivity and reducing downtime. With the help of Siemens' PLC S7 300 t, the configuration of this processing system is independent, the switching time of different products is shorter, the output is higher, and the efficiency of the production line is higher. Moreover, as the performance of the processing line has been improved, the movement range of the mechanical device is larger, and the floor area of the factory can be correspondingly smaller. (end)
