Frontmatec wins MES deal with pork processor
Frontmatec has won an order from Atria to install an MES (Manufacturing Execution System) at its cutting and deboning factory in Nurmo, in Finland.

Atria has facilities in Finland, Sweden, Russia, Denmark, and the Baltics.

Rasmus Schmidt, marketing coordinator, Frontmatec, told FoodProductionDaily, the MES is based on the GOSystems platform and includes order handling from ERP, scheduling of the orders, all data collection, traceability, and yield control.

GOSystems is based on a plugin and service-oriented architecture (SOA). It includes a management tool which production IT can configure and set up. From there, settings on individual components can be modified and other versions can be added and deployed.

Frontmatec is the result of the merger between Dansk Styringsteknik and B.V. Electronic​,” he said.

Today we are a full service automation supplier with offices throughout Denmark​.

Danish Crown and Tican

Our GOSystem has proven its worth in the Danish and Norwegian meat industry, where our customers include Danish Crown and Tican​.

We are proud to announce Atria, one of the leading Finnish meat companies has now bought into the product as well​.”

Tapani Potka, Senior VP, delivery chain management, Atria Finland, added the MES system will ensure increased throughput, less manual work, optimal process flow and high reliability of deliveries to internal and external customers.

Bogense Plast

Other users of Frontmatec’s GOSystems platform include Bogense Plast, in Denmark, which has reduced the energy consumption of drying raw materials and avoided overdosage of raw materials on its injection moulding machine. 

The firm specialises in the development, design, production, assembly and delivery of injection moulded plastic components.

The energy consumption from drying plastic granulate is reduced by dosing the exact amount and by closing down the drying process when no raw materials are consumed.
