A transformative robotic gripper and vision system that enables the robotic assembly of food ingredients, fully autonomously, hygienically and cost effectively.
Designed for use in ready meal factories and retail food outlets alike, the Industrial Robotic Solutions system can continuously assemble sandwiches, burgers, salads and hundreds of other ready meals.
Ingredients the gripper can pick and place
- Boiled egg
- Sliced bread
- Burger bun
- Pizza base
‘‘We are excited to be working with Industrial Robotic Solutions in building the world’s first fully autonomous multi-ingredient robotic sandwich production line.’’
