WS Sweets for confectionery and chocolate machines
In the current WS Sweets project, an industry-specific communication standard for the confectionery industry is being developed together with confectionery production companies, machine builders and IT system providers. The basis for this is formed by the Weihenstephan Standards, which, in addition to standardized data transmission based on OPC UA or WS Protocol, also defines concrete data content for different machine classes and thus significantly simplifies line integration.
The starting point for the work on this new WS domain is the ChoConnect showcase. Here, a simulated chocolate bar production line was used to demonstrate the simple and standardized machine networking of different manufacturers based on OPC UA for the first time. For more information on the ChoConnect Showcase, see video ChoConnect (open YouTube Player).
The WS Sweets project started on June 01, 2021. Other interested companies are welcome to join!
