Whitworth Bros. open new world-class flour mill in Whitley Bridge
Whitworth Bros. Ltd., the UK’s largest miller, has opened the first mill featuring Bühler’s Mill E3 in the north of England at Whitley Bridge in Yorkshire.
The opening of the first Mill E3 is a key staging post in the journey to the SmartMill, Bühler said. The data generated and analyzed at the Whitley Bridge plant will drive the evolution of milling technology from the current data assisted mill into a plant capable of using its own process parameters in a closed loop to optimize production. This development of the self-adjusting mill will be the precursor to the SmartMill.
