New technology is coming: the outbreak of robots in the food industry around the world

at the moment when China vigorously develops intelligence and proposes intelligent manufacturing 2025, other countries and regions are also constantly accelerating the intelligent layout. As a result, various types of robots have emerged in the world to be used in modern production processes. So, in the field of food, which robots have appeared recently

Japan: when the research and development of robot sub packaged Bento was in progress

two days ago, the author heard that a Japanese company engaged in robot development business developed a bento sub packaged robot. The actual working principle of the robot is similar to that of the sorting robot. With the help of cameras, sensors, mechanical claws and other structural components, the robot can grasp and move food through three-dimensional recognition patterns plus deep learning technology. At present, the efficiency of this robot to recognize and grasp is up to 7 seconds, and the accuracy is close to 90%

in the concept of use, if the robot is installed on the lunch box production line, it will have remarkable results instead of manual work. It is reported that this Bento sub packaging robot will start a confirmatory test application in the lunch box factory next month. Once the test is successful, it will be put into the market in 2020

Taiwan, China, China: flexible robots harvest vegetables and fruits

at National Chung Hsing University in Taiwan, a research team in materials science and engineering has developed a soft robot with autonomous sensing function. The robot uses silica gel as raw material and is attached with retractable nano conductive materials, so that the skin can be soft, retractable, freely deformable, perceptible external environmental factors, muscle movement and other characteristics without battery drive

this equipment is extremely soft and not easy to cause damage to vegetables and fruits. Therefore, it is suitable for harvesting some vegetables and fruits with soft and tender skin, such as tomatoes, strawberries, etc. It can also rely on electrostatic force to detect various actions when moving goods, such as approaching, taking, moving, etc., so as to realize independent detection of the risk of accidental falling of goods, and further reduce the risk of damage to fruits and vegetables

United States: robots can make hamburgers

in California, a start-up creator made a robot, which was used to make hamburgers in hamburger restaurants last month. The robot integrates 20 computers, 350 sensors and 50 drivers. When making hamburgers, first, the compressed air pipe pushes the bread into the lifting trough, and the vibrating knife saws it in two and sends it to the conveyor belt for baking. Then, the accurately measured butter, sauce and spices are automatically sprayed on the bread. Then cut pickles, tomatoes, onions, cheese and other ingredients. When processing meat, the robot can keep it into small pieces, string them vertically, and then gently press them together to form a loose but complete pie on the bread. The whole process takes only 5 minutes

the first series of this kind of material in the machine not only meets the dynamic strength index, but also rows of paddles to promote the movement of hamburgers. Until the waiter handed it over to the customer, he would not have the first contact with people's hands. It is reported that this method greatly reduces the production cost, so that people can enjoy hamburgers made of high-end ingredients and cleaned and dried for only $6

Israel: robot picking sweet pepper

at Negev Ben Gurion University in Israel, a robot named "sweeper" with rich content of this meeting was tried to be used for picking sweet pepper. Preliminary experiments show that the robot can pick a mature sweet pepper in 24 seconds, with a success rate of 62%. However, this is not very satisfactory, and researchers will further improve it. For example, computer vision technology can improve the ability of "sweeper" to judge mature sweet pepper and speed up the picking speed

according to the imagination of relevant researchers of the University, after the robot transformation in the future, researchers have developed a special program called LabVIEW, which will be engaged in picking 24 hours a day, greatly reducing the decay of fruits and vegetables, reducing labor costs, and enabling farmers to have a strong ability to bear market risks. Researchers plan to put the sweet pepper picking robot into commercial application in the next 4 to 5 years, and expand the picking of other crops at the same time

as a major field related to people's livelihood, food is developing continuously under the wave of intelligence, and all kinds of robots are emerging in endlessly all over the world. The field of food machinery and equipment in China also needs more such intelligent forces to keep up with the pace of international development
