Food industry Ready-made meals

Robots that respond to the latest consumer trends

Given the need to respond quickly to consumer trends, the ready-made meals sector is always looking for innovative solutions for preparing and presenting meals—and automation offers a distinct advantage. Stäubli robots can be used in traditional operations such as handling of heavy loads, adding decoration, portioning and marking meals, 3D bin picking, mixing or placement of accessories and are completely reliable even at very high speeds. Since our robots are extremely versatile, they can also carry out operations for short runs.
