Confectionery Industry Maintenance Software

Sugar, chocolate, and other ingredients used in candy manufacturing are highly sensitive to temperature and moisture. Products may stick together, break apart, or crystallize on machine surfaces if conditions are not carefully controlled. Equipment, pumps, and pipes are prone to clog or break down. After packaging, candy products must be kept in conditions that do not compromise quality or shelf life. All along, the risk of contamination threatens product safety and quality.

FTMaintenance asset management software helps candy and confectionery product manufacturers create safe, quality food products. Set preventive maintenance schedules for important tasks such as cleaning, inspections, and lubrication. Document standard operating procedures (SOPs) that provide instructions for maintaining food safety and sanitation during repairs. Build a maintenance history that identifies the reasons for equipment failure and aids technicians in troubleshooting.
