For example, Castle Mill, a UK-based flour milling company is using NIR analysers to control flour milling process. DA 7250, an NIR analyzer offered by Perten Instruments and NIRS DS2500 by FOSS are also being used for analysis in the flour milling industry.

According to The Business Research Company’s Consultant, Nitin Gianchandani, rice milling companies are adopting automation in their mills to streamline production process and enhance efficiency. These systems automate husking, whitening, polishing grading, blending and packaging stages of rice milling. This maximizes the total milled rice recovery out of paddy and minimizes grain breakage. Satake, a Japanese company and Buhler, a Swiss technology company, provide complete rice mill automation solutions. Modernized and advanced rice milling equipment such as MNML series and MNTL series rice milling machines are being used by companies to achieve high degree of automation.
