in the food industry

The need for automation within the food industry has increased in recent years. There are several reasons for this. Among other things, increasing demand, stricter food safety and worker safety have made automation increasingly important. The food industry faces more complex conditions than other industries because it is difficult for robots to handle food products directly. The advent of cobots and new gripper technology has changed this.

Collaborative robots in the food industry

Until recently, the food industry has always been able to benefit slightly from robotization. This is because it is difficult for robots to handle food items carefully. But the cobot is developing further and further so that more and more new applications, solutions and possibilities are opening up for the food industry. The arrival of new gripper technology in combination with vision technology has caused a turnaround.
