Robots satisfy hunger for ROI in food and beverage industry

160311 AbbDrafting temporary labour to meet orders increases wage costs and cuts profits through errors owing to unfamiliarity. Customers expect consistent quality and mistakes lead to wasted ingredients, late delivery or even product recalls. Robots can switch between multiple processes with minimal downtime and high reliability, providing the flexibility to complete orders quickly. Developments in offline programming mean that new processes can be tested before installation, eliminating time and cost on commissioning stages. Additionally, technological advances such as vision inspection mean robots quickly spot defective products. Robots are also available in a wide range of models suitable for wash-down environments. Carrying the maximum IP69k protection, these robots are hygienic and can save food manufacturers the cost of contamination in upstream processes.
