Dosing systems for Goman Bakeriet

15.11.2005

Goman Bakeriet is one of Norway’s largest bakery companies, with some ten bakeries around the country. Goman has appointed Dosetec as its supplier for dosing systems.

Dosetec has delivered a flour dosing system for Goman in Verdal and Hønefoss. Dosetec also expanded its existing dosing systems at Goman in Fredrikstad and Trondheim. In Verdal, old flour silos were modified to have new vibrating bases. New flour scale and vacuum conveyor will help to guarantee a sufficient capacity in future.

The control system is a Siemens S7 PLC. Dosing is controlled with a touch panel located next to the flour scale. The operator can start the dosing after selecting the recipe and the quantity. A service run can also be started from the touch screen. Ditlev Bernhard Arntzen, director of the bakery in Verdal, is satisfied with Dosetec’s delivery. The installation and start-up were carried out exactly on schedule and the transfer from the old system to the new one was done without any production downtime.
