  • Getting the balance right between automation and craft

    August 16, 2018

    [:en]A major challenge being faced by craft manufacturers is how to meet increasing demands without compromising the individuality and flair at the heart of their product. One way in which this can happen is by customers taking the first steps towards automation.

    Automation is becoming increasingly widely considered for craft producers, in the current environment where margins are being cut by retailers. “This requires [craft] manufacturers to find ways to improve their production flow, to allow them to become more competitive”, writes Susanne Gill in this month’s Food Processing magazine.

    However, “the mistaken belief that the transition demands a big-step change is hindering adoption of these technologies”, writes Gill. She explains that automation “can be implemented without needing to build a new facility or replace existing equipment”, and that “change can happen in a modest way, and can be scaled up gradually”.

    At Adelphi, we understand the challenges that craft producers face, and we can tailor our equipment precisely to your needs, to avoid compromising product quality.

    Our semi-automatic and automatic process machinery provides the benefits of:

    • Reliability and consistency; reducing the potential for human error
    • Maximising process efficiency for more cost-effective manufacturing
    • Future-proof scalability, to enable the growth of your business
    • Attractive equipment aesthetics for when clients are invited into your production facilities
