At the iba 2018 in Munich, Michael Wippler, President of the Central Association of the German Bakery Trade, handed out the iba Awards.
The iba Award, presented by the trade journal Backtechnik europe, honours innovations in the industrial or line-oriented production of baked goods that were exhibited for the first time at the world's leading trade fair.
After an inspection visit to the fair, the award winners were nominated by an honorary, independent jury.
FRITSCH has also won this iba Award again. This year for the SMART SERVICES:
Digitalisation and "Industry 4. 0" are key topics in the baking industry. FRITSCH has taken this into account with its "Intelligent Services". In addition to standard functions, such as real-time condition monitoring and the provision of operating data in the cloud, the approach to simplifying and accelerating maintenance by the use of data glasses is very innovative and therefore worth the money. This means that the in-house fitter can promptly send pictures and videos of the affected system components to the manufacturer and thus enable very fast fault analysis in the future.
