Maximum productivity without damaging coffee beans

Maximum productivity without damaging coffee beans Rising global demand for espresso coffee has had a dramatic impact on requests from restaurants and bars for high quality coffee products. Leading industry suppliers such as The Drury Tea & Coffee Company, located in central London, have been able to meet these high production demands by leveraging innovative manufacturing solutions. Since replacing its manual coffee bean handling operations with an automated industrial vacuum conveying system, Drury has greatly improved production while reducing overhead costs and preserving the integrity of its flavourful coffee beans. In the company's quest to find a less laborious, safer and more efficient transfer system, Drury replaced its existing manual processes with an automated industrial vacuum conveyor (IC33) from PIAB. The company was particularly impressed with the results demonstrated at PIAB's conveying test laboratory. Since the installation of the conveyor Drury has been able to transfer one full-time employee to a more productive task, which has drastically reduced the labour costs of the operation and improved welfare for employees. Additionally, because the hygienic conveyor is completely enclosed, there is no risk of contamination or dust generation, thus improving the overall health and safety aspects of the process.
