Advantages of Robots in Food Manufacturing

Jun 26, 2017

Robots have proven to be beneficial in various industries, including food manufacturing. At, we offer a diverse range of industrial robots that can enhance payload, speed, accuracy, and vision performance. We also provide clean room robots that meet specific requirements. Contact our engineers today to kickstart your food handling application process.

Food Handling Robot

Food man­u­fac­tur­ing has grown into rather com­plex process­es involv­ing prepar­ing, cook­ing, sort­ing, pack­ag­ing and pal­letiz­ing. Indus­tri­al food ser­vice robots are increas­ing­ly being inte­grat­ed in order to save time and space, as well as improv­ing clean­li­ness and safety. 

Food man­u­fac­tur­ing robots are com­mon­ly used in the dis­pens­ing, feed place­ment, cut­ting, pack­ag­ing or cas­ing of food, pick-and-plac­ing prod­ucts into con­tain­ers, and sort­ing. New­er devel­op­ments also allow for order pick­ing, where an employ­ee or cus­tomer is able to place an order elec­tron­i­cal­ly, and the food robot auto­mat­i­cal­ly fills that spe­cif­ic order.

For the pack­ag­ing of food items, where speed, con­sis­ten­cy or high lev­els of rep­e­ti­tion are con­cerned, the food robots almost always win over humans in terms of effi­cien­cy. Robots are equipped with intel­li­gent vision sys­tems allow­ing the very spe­cif­ic place­ment of prod­ucts on a belt to be done with incred­i­ble accu­ra­cy. Vision sys­tem robots are also uti­lized in sort­ing by col­or, shape or size. 

At Robots​.com, we incor­po­rate indus­tri­al robots in numer­ous man­u­fac­tur­ing process­es, includ­ing food. Choos­ing the right robot depends on fac­tors such as pay­load, speed, accu­ra­cy, and vision controls. 

Addi­tion­al­ly, we offer clean room robots that meet spe­cif­ic clean room spec­i­fi­ca­tions for your appli­ca­tion needs:

The robots’ grip and vac­u­um tools have under­gone sig­nif­i­cant devel­op­ment. The air­flow vac­u­um tool is ide­al for frag­ile items as it can pick them up with­out touch­ing them. For prod­ucts with uneven sur­faces, the suc­tion cup works best, while the vac­u­um grip­per uses pres­sure dif­fer­ence for fast pick­up. Fin­ger grip­pers work well for cakes with loose par­ti­cles. All tools should be easy to clean, change, and made from suit­able materials.
