A customer in the retail food industry contracted Green Globe Services to custom design and layout a stainless steel, PLC-controlled coffee bean processing system. Once contracted our design team provided finished engineering drawings in less than 20 weeks. We created a design for a customized system that met the customer-supplied specifications, as well as those set by OSHA, NEMA, and emissions of the state of New Jersey.

he Coffee Bean Processing System was designed using 3-D modeling utilizing Solidworks and finite element analysis.  The system’s capabilities allowed for interfacing with an existing system which was in operation at the customer’s plant. We also provided component procurement and training resources.

The final system had comprehensive, interactive capabilities that could be used in conjunction with their current system and allowed for batching, conveying, cleaning, storing, roasting, and granulating of coffee beans. For more information about this custom designed system, see the table below or contact Green Globe Services directly.
