Old vs New Winery Solutions
Medium and larger wineries usually have their processes controlled from a central point. However, in these larger facilities, this centralised control infrastructure could result in a high relative cost, limiting expansion flexibility and diminishing efficiency. By upgrading your control systems to a fieldbus network or ‘smart winery’ solution, we’re putting winemakers back in the driver’s seat. With Bürkert fieldbus systems, you have more than just added control, by introducing this type of automation, it allows for scalability, providing you better control and immediate response times.
