iba 2015: Slice, weigh and label with Bizerba
Bizerba presents extensive solutions for implementing the new EU Food Information Regulation (FIR), POS systems, scales, and bread slicers
At iba 2015 (hall B3, stand 361) from September 12 to 17 in Munich Bizerba will simulate two potential store scenarios on the exhibition stand in order to illustrate the common challenges faced in bakeries and confectionery shops, . The reconstructions will demonstrate how a small work surface can be used in a space-saving manner and how labelling that complies with the EU Food Information Regulation (FIR) can be carried out efficiently.
A lot of information, minimal space: Space is often at a premium, particularly in small bakeries. Bizerba shows how it can be done: The ScalePad counter weighing pad is integrated into the counter surface and can be used in even the most confined spaces. This user-friendly product also serves as a work surface for hygienic slicing. As elements of the K-flex modular POS and weighing systems, in this scenario POS cash trays, displays, CPUs and printers are added and positioned wherever space allows: on, near or under the counter. The resulting weighing system allows service staff in bakeries free access to the counter display.
For FIR-compliant labelling and the creation of counter signs, the robust iS65 industrial PC with the .CWS merchandise management system will also be on display in this store setup. The industrial PC can be used as an information, control and input terminal. The installed merchandise management system is also an interface to the two reference databases for nutritional information, Datenbank and BackBüro. Suppliers can enter all of their raw materials, with nutritional information and allergens. The terminal itself also offers a number of its own interfaces: the serial interface, for example, enables an external scanner to be connected. The iS65 also has two Ethernet and three USB ports. At the trade fair the SC II 100 scale will be connected to the terminal and print weight-related, FIR-compliant labels for prepackaged goods.
