THANK YOU FOR SUBSCRIBING
According to research, nine out of ten food processing and packaging industries use robots to improve food safety, reduce worker accidents, and increase productivity.
Fremont, CA: A few years ago, many were hesitant to transition to automation, but robots have helped businesses appreciate their value across all industrial sectors. All it took was a deadly coronavirus pandemic. During the pandemic, the function of robots has expanded dramatically. Robotic applications are increasingly prevalent, ranging from spraying disinfectants to delivering food orders. While personnel was required to observe lockdown and social separation requirements, robots kept the industries functioning. Robots are becoming an essential element of this sector. According to research, nine out of ten food processing and packaging industries use robots to improve food safety, reduce worker accidents, and increase productivity.
Its transition has been long overdue since the food and beverage industries are already falling behind in digital advancement and productivity. Meeting sterility and food safety criteria is one of the most challenging difficulties. With such low levels of commitment and being a big economic contributor, the employment of Robotics in this area gets urgently needed. It should also be part of the vision for the future factory and the transition to Food Manufacturing 4.0.
The advantages of utilizing robots in food preparation are appealing. Because of tasks like cutting great demand uniformity, robots in food processing eliminate waste and boost total yield. When precise cuts mean the difference between tainted meat and sellable goods, it's said that robots could assist manufacturers in experiencing a 3percentage yield gain. Furthermore, they reduce the likelihood of food contamination due to human mistakes while also improving quality output. It might result in cost savings as a result of decreased waste. In addition, economic savings get realized by substituting a human workforce in high-frequency jobs or duties that people deem non-ergonomic; high task repetition or tasks that require severe exertion. They can even work in situations regarded as too hostile for people, such as cold storage units, freezers, cleaning tools, or food products containing dangerous chemical exposure.
