IDMA 2015 – Bühler demonstrates processing expertise

The Bühler Group is prominently on display at the IDMA technology trade show in Istanbul, Turkey from April 23 until 26, 2015. The Business Area Grain Milling will be showcasing the entire breadth of its processing expertise at its approximately 600 m2 booth (B-17) in Hall 2. Under the motto, “One step ahead in processing grains to food”, Bühler is presenting various new or improved machinery and plants to the technical public. Besides the two roller mills, Dolomit and Antares, Bühler will be demonstrating the innovative plansifter Seginus. With a seamless synchronous processing set-up that is unique worldwide, this plansifter uses a minimum amount of space while maintaining top sanitation and enables flexible sifting and sorting of flour and semolina at a throughput capacity of up to 20% more.

Milling executives attend hands-on course at the International Grains Program.

One of IMD‘s biggest companies Buhler have hosted a hands on grains program. Mill owners, directors and managers from around the world traveled to the Inter- national Grains Program Nov. 5-9, 2012 for the Buhler-KSU Executive Milling short course. The course was held at Kansas State University’s International Grains Program and the Hal Ross Flour Mill where 15 participants experienced a hands-on learning opportunity.

The course was led by Tobias Naenny from the Buhler Training Center in Uzwil, Switzerland. Assisting him were two Department of Grain Science and Industry faculty members John Steinfort, Buhler adjunct instructor, and Shawn Thiele, milling operations manager.

In describing the course, Steinfort says, “The course is designed to educate milling executives and non-operation managers on all aspects of the milling process, which will help them to make better business and managerial decisions on a daily basis.”

One participant eager to learn was Luis Villaverde, director of Guatemala operations with Molinos Modernos. Villaverde was grateful for the experts who shared their expertise and the background of milling. He found the information useful as his company begins to expand their wheat mill.
“I was interested in the knowledge and being able to take advantage of the expertise from the people in the business. This course allowed me to better understand the business as a whole,” Villaverde says.

Luis Villaverde Mayo, Molinos Modernso, S.A., Guatemala; Jose Puig, Galletas Puig, Venezuela; and Carlos Puig, Galletas Puig, Venezuela, look at the equipment in the Hal Ross Flour Mill.

Throughout the week participants were in the classroom learning the basics of flour milling and then headed to the mill to apply those principals. From the Hal Ross Flour Mill to the Shellenberger Hall milling laboratory, they had the opportunity to put their skills to the test. These trainings allowed participants to learn about purifiers, milling machinery, proper cleaning procedures and the milling process.

“Going to the mill for workshops was very rich,” Villaverde says. “I have learned about the properties of the grain and the milling process from breaks all the way to getting the flour.”
Not only did the experts teach the participants, but the participants were able to network and learn from each other. Villaverde says he enjoyed exchanging ideas with other participants and seeing how their companies handled situations.

This is just one example of the many partnership trainings offered through IGP. In addition to flour milling and grain processing, IGP offers trainings in the areas of feed manufacturing and grain management, and grain marketing and risk management. For more information about training opportunities at IGP visit the IGP website.

It truly was a spectacular showcase with some 400 market leaders all packed into one place, many of whom I am pleased to see are listed with IMD. I know that our representatives who attended had a great time meeting all of you and hopefully those who weren’t registered when we met them will be filling in their forms now!

The IMD office has been a little quiet this week with many of us visiting Cereals 2012, but by no means did that prevent us from continuing the important work that has been going on behind the scenes. I have again managed get in touch with most of you in between other jobs just to catch up and make sure that you are getting the most out of your IMD listings.

If you wish to enhance your listing and we haven’t already made contact please feel free to get in touch simply by clicking my name at the bottom of this post. We at IMD are confident in our abilities to tailor each marketing to tool to your specific needs and cost requirements and I am always happy to hear new ideas!

Having said that, once again your response has been fantastic and I have enjoyed speaking to so many of you this week and finding the best ways to enhance your profile with IMD. With that in mind I would like to remind those of you that already have or who would like to participate in our equipment guides section please treat it as a matter of urgency and contact me as time is running out and it would be a shame for you to miss the opportunity.

Remember, the equipment guide is a great opportunity for you to advertise some of your products and guarantee an entire page in the directory devoted to your company. If any manufacturers would like to learn more about equipment guides please do not hesitate to email me, I have attached some samples below to give you a taster of what you could, but shouldn’t be missing out on!

Lastly I would like to inform you that I have managed to extend the deadline one last time for you to check your details, add to your listings and send in your equipment guides. The final deadline for the printed International Milling Directory 2012/13 is June 22, 2012.

I wish you all a very pleasant weekend!
