Automation platforms deliver productivity in food production

Automation platforms deliver productivity in food production
  For food and beverage manufacturers there are many benefits in rationalising their automation vendors. Using a single source of supply for automation components can play a big role in improving flexibility and reducing downtime. However, as Jeremy Shinton, Mitsubishi Electric explained, an automation system can be much more than just the sum of its parts.
