Important solutions will be presented this year regarding the food industry needs of automation, e.g. high-output solutions are required with output rates that can be well over 100,000 units per hour depending on the application. For secondary packaging, most manufacturers offer powerful robots in all possible payload and range classes. Industrial machine vision also plays a key role in many applications in this type of industry.
New automation solutions are at the point of being put into practice every day. Regardless of whether it concerns the new tomato harvesting robot from Panasonic or cutting dough into pieces with jet of water, there are few limits to the innovative power of the automation industry or to potential projects in the food industry.
