With over 35 years of experience and a focused emphasis Bachelor Controls has a wealth of experience in the industries that utilize our batching and process know-how. Our primary area of focus has been in the food and pharmaceutical industries. Over the years we have also delivered some advance applications in the specialty chemical and metal forming industries such as:
Food & Beverage
Designing control systems for food and beverage applications has been a primary focus of BCI since the company’s inception. BCI has completed projects as simple as PLC programming and as complex as a new 5000 I/O breakfast cereal line. Expertise in batching systems, extrusion automation and MES integration have allowed BCI to provide services to many food processing operations, including snack foods, cereals, treats, bakeries, coffee, breweries, beverages, etc.
In the high-risk, high-reward environment of pharmaceutical manufacturing, it is important to place your trust in a systems integrator capable of handling the complexities of your process and meeting federal compliance measures, such as 21 CFR Part 11. Whether providing services directly or working closely with OEMs such as Custom Powder Systems and AZO, BCI has provided precision controls and automated systems for many pharmaceutical clients over the past two decades, including IBC handling/containment, batching systems and MES integration.
BCI has provided controls and automation for the plastics manufacturing industry. Processes such as batching and compounding can benefit greatly from a reliable control system capable of recipe/formula management, ingredient and product tracking, and data collection and reporting. Companies gain even more efficiency by integrating the plant floor with the corporate business system (MES integration) to give management near real-time information they can use for critical decisionmaking. Some services BCI has provided the plastics industry include scheduling and high-end batching systems, bar code lot tracking, batching with color control, and complete material batching, mixing, and delivery for pipe extrusion.
A diversity of experience and expertise has led BCI into a variety of industrial processes, including the manufacturing and production of specialty chemicals and materials. Depending on the application and chemicals being used, BCI has provided accurate, reliable control applications for batching, production, and other parts of the manufacturing process. These projects included work with pharmaceutical products, scientific research products, food and starch ingredients and resins, and other specialty chemicals.
