Two people from ABB are to present a paper at the CCFRA Conference on Robotics and Automation in food on Thursday 2 November 2006 at CCFRA, Chipping Campden, UK.
Food manufacturing continues to experience the seemingly opposing demands of meeting high consumer expectation at the lowest possible cost. To this end, the food industry is increasingly becoming aware of the need to use advanced food manufacturing technologies that will allow greater process flexibility and reduce both energy and waste costs. The potential benefits of robotic and automated food manufacturing systems, such as consistently high levels of safety and quality, high productivity and lower operating costs, are powerful drivers for many food companies. However, in the past, the unwary have been caught out by inappropriate implementation, with promised benefits not being fully realised.
Alan Spreckley and Nick Walsh from ABB robotics will be presenting 'Robots in Food - Feeding the need'. Their presentation will cover the following subjects:
