Reading Bakery Systems (RBS), manufacturers of snack production systems, has announced the expansion of capabilities and services offered by RBSConnect, its proprietary Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platform.

RBSConnect from Reading Bakery Systems provides innovative, custom-designed control systems. RBSConnect facilitates better communication, coordination of the operations and the ability to collect and analyse data. 

These systems monitor real-time information, as well as provide preventative maintenance information, key performance indicators, alarm history and trending. This information will help replace parts and discover potential machine problems before they result in costly downtime.

Shawn Moye Vice President of Sales, RBS, said: “RBSConnect offers a full suite of innovative solutions to empower customers to maximise their system controls, optimisation and management. It’s an exciting blend of manufacturing automation, intelligence and analytics. Resulting in customers achieving tomorrow’s baking systems performance goals, today.”
