Sensors support the crisp bread production in Sweden

What is the most typical Swedish product? It does not take long to give the answer: crisp bread. Sweden's largest producer of the traditional round crisp bread is based in the small town of Leksand in Central Sweden. Also integrated: ifm as the automation specialist.

The company "Leksands Knäckebröd" was founded in 1920 and has been family-owned since then, today in the 4th generation. While the recipes are still the same after about 100 years, the production process is completely different now. Production is automated according to the latest state-of-the-art technology. To ensure that the systems always run smoothly, different sensors monitor the production process - from the supply of the ingredients to the dispatch area.

Peter Joon, Managing Director at Leksands Knäckebröd: "We use many different sensors since this is a very modern production and a highly automated process. To maintain the high productivity of 99.6 %, we need sensors we can trust. For this reason we are now using many sensors from ifm. They are of very good quality and function very well with out systems."

Lars Ohlner, Automation Engineer at Leksands Knäckebröd adds: "We use products from ifm because they are easy to configure and which are cost effective; they simply function reliably. We mainly use photoelectric and capacitive sensors and some flow sensors. We obtain high-grade and effective automation and a reliable production process."
