About the Customer

The Bühler Holding AG based in Uzwil, Switzerland is a technology company. Bühler AG develops and manufactures industrial process technologies and solutions for food, mobility, and communication markets worldwide. The core technologies of the Group are in the field of mechanical and thermal process engineering.

Scope and Challenges

Bühler’s digital transformation, combined with 70 years of grain sorting expertise, has enabled it to detect contamination and save lives using cloud-based data analysis and UV lighting technology.

The end result is LumoVision: an optical sorting machine that takes pictures of individual kernels and effectively removes contaminated maize grains to ensure safe food and feed. And while that sounds simple enough, it’s a solution that’s only been made possible through Bühler’s commitment to digital transformation.

Through an exploratory analysis of the hyperspectral data in Azure Machine Learning Studio, the most important optical parameters/wavelengths for classifying contaminated grains were identified. And these insights enabled the development team to design an effective and cost-efficient camera for industrial high-throughput grain sorting that’s capable of detecting mold-contaminated maize grains.

Outcome and Implications

To put this into numbers: the system can process up to 15 tons of maize per hour. That’s 15 tons – or, an entire truckload – of maize that might otherwise have to be burned or thrown away if just two aflatoxin-affected grains were detected. 

So, not only are there huge cost savings to be made, but there are also huge implications for the global food supply chain – especially when you consider the amount of food that gets wasted each day due to inefficient processing in underdeveloped regions.

“Now we can have a subscription model and charge at different rates, depending on whether we are sorting or monitoring. And without that connection [to the cloud], we wouldn’t really be able to do that." - said Ben Deefholts Senior Research Engineer at Bühler AG. 

“It’s a new revenue stream for Bühler, but it also offers our customers the opportunity to get this technology at a much lower initial cost, and then they can pay for it from the profits they’re making over time, rather than buying machinery outright. I think that could give us access to a much wider customer base in the future.” - said Ben Deefholts.

"We’re not only going to get economic results but hopefully we can transform and save lives at the same time. It’s the most exciting and valuable project I’ve worked on in my 40 years with the company. It’s a really big thing." - said Ben Deefholts.
