Objective

Eliminate Operator Error

Case Study

Looking to solve problems with their batching system and eliminate operator errors, Stauffer’s picked Focus Works because of a calculated five month return on investment on their batch and lot tracking solution.

Stauffer’s is best recognized for animal crackers but also produces a variety of crackers and cookies in three bakeries around the United States. Stauffer’s roots are in York, Pennsylvania where the first animal crackers were produced in 1871. Each day Stauffer’s produces more than 250 tons of animal crackers, cookies, and snack crackers on fifteen oven lines using only the finest ingredients. Stauffer’s delivers a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee on all of their products so achieving perfect product quality is paramount to their success.

Stauffer’s installed the PRIMS system in its York, PA, plant to control recipe compliance at 6 Pre-Scale Stations, 2 Icing Mixers, and 8 Mixer Stations.  At the mixers, PRIMS controls the bulk ingredient systems for flour, granulated sugar, HCFS and temperature-controlled water.

Our wireless network also replaced their more costly cabled network with the added benefit that the pre-scale stations are more portable. Less cabling now makes it easier to move appliances for regular plant cleaning and maintenance.

“PRIMS allowed us to determine where we had recipe compliance issues, and to take the required corrective action immediately. Improved visibility as to what is happening on the plant floor is a real plus.”

Prior to installing the PRIMS system, they were not getting consistent quality in their production of the speaker cones.

Modern Italian Bakery Reduces Waste Dramatically with the Help of Focus Works’ PRIMS Solution

With PRIMS, they confirmed that up to 20% of the batches were out of spec and were able to correct the problem.
