Rockwell Automation India Pvt. Ltd.

Rockwell Automation brings fresh ideas to improve plant performance and appetite for higher productivity.

Globalization and consolidation is challenging the food processing and packaging companies in India to rationalize brands and capacity. This holds true not just for the consumer-driven food companies, but also for the ingredient companies that supply to them. At the same time, power retailers, marketing influence, government regulation and constant changes in consumer preference place increased demands on flexibility, responsiveness, quality, consistency and reduced costs.

This pressure extends beyond the food companies to the OEMs that serve them as well.

The food industry in India is a wide and diverse market, with many segments and sub-segments some organized and some still largely in a disorganized state all facing competition for the shelf . While common themes run throughout, expertise in one doesn’t necessarily mean ability and applicability in another.

The manufacturing environment itself is incredibly diverse, with warehousing and inventory management, batch processing, continuous process control, discrete packaging all residing preferably under the same roof. One weak link in the chain can erase any quality, productivity, cost or flexibility gains in the others.

Because of the breadth of our country and diversity, consolidation can be extremely difficult to help one to draw an accurate picture of the entire food production process industry. A necessity for consolidation and focused approach to help meet customer‘s demand, maintain food safety and identifying cost and production inefficiencies.

The new regulatory requirements and increasingly fickle consumer demands are putting more pressure on the Indian food industry manufacturers than ever before in their history. The challenges extend beyond the manufacturers themselves and put increased pressure on equipment OEMs and ingredient suppliers as well. Meeting these demands requires an automation partner that has the right technology, understands the food industry landscape and can bring outside perspective from other industries.

Rockwell Automation is the partner of choice to many food processing and manufacturing companies in India and globally who have met their cost, quality, flexibility and regulatory challenges – from raw materials through final shipment. Rockwell Automation’s Food Manufacturing Optimization solutions focus on the business issues facing the food industry and addresses every phase of food manufacturing operations.

Rockwell Automation’s manufacturing experience, breadth of product offerings, and technical services also help companies to optimize their utilization of valuable and limited human, physical and financial assets, while minimizing waste and satisfying demanding consumers and retailers.

Rockwell Automation’s integrated architecture and plant-wide optimization solutions which also includes solutions for control, visualization, networking and information management – enables food industry manufacturers to improve startup times and bring new products to market faster . The speed, flexibility and responsiveness required to meet the demands of today’s powerful retailers requires incredible amounts of information sharing between the manufacturing environment and business systems. Rockwell Automations MES solutions provide the critical link between the factory floor and IT.

All food producers must be capable of timely recall of product, but with heightened awareness of potential malicious tampering and acts of terror against the food supply, more accurate and timely response must be realized. Rockwell Automation’s Resource Tracking and Genealogy solution provides traceability of materials, equipment and personnel throughout the production process from material receiving through finished product shipping.

Today, Rockwell Automation has significantly enhanced its platform-independent service capability and organization to globally implement systems and deploy solutions that provide food companies with a comprehensive approach to reduce time to market, drive regulatory compliance, optimize manufacturing and improve plant uptime.
