Picking And Placing Of Pies

Project Overview

A food producer from the bakery industry faced an increased consumer demand for their pie products. To comply they made the strategic decision to install a complete new line at their factory. With prior experiences in robotic automation in mind they formulated a clear mission; “No un-picked pies & No under-filled trays”. They were looking for the best performance with an efficiency over 98 % for this new line.
