Swiss technology group Bühler is taking the long-lasting and fruitful relationship with Kägi Söhne AG, the Swiss chocolate wafer producer, to the next level. Bühler is supporting Kägi in building its smart factory. By 2024, Kägi plans to have its entire machine park digitally networked and all process data visualized.
The first steps towards the smart factory started in 2019 when Kägi and Bühler teams conducted a Performance Assessment Workshop to discover where improvements could be made in the production process of the chocolate wafer manufacturer. “Our vision is to produce the perfect Kägi every day, whether it is 30°C in summer or minus 10°C in winter,” says Pascal Grin, Chief Operating Officer of Kägi Söhne AG.
