food production advances

Food handling systems presently include Intelligent robotic and sensor technologies. Producers can instantly witness how the machines adapt to factory floors and create the most stable and profitable production lines possible.

New Opportunities in Robotic Food Handling

Automation has existed in the food processing industry for decades. But today’s informed consumers are more demanding than ever. Environmentally friendly operations and single source products are now essential to economic success.


Incoming & Outgoing

This automated handling system is capable of more than loading or tending. With the right onsite support, machine tending can be upgraded to undertake everything from sanding to welding to palletizing and work 1.5-2 times faster than human hands.
Automated material handling solutions is a critical benefit to factory floors. Advanced hardware allows employees to forego perilous and mundane assignments to concentrate on more complex tasks. Machines like ASTRIA can work multiple shifts and cut down on labor hours significantly.
One of the most reliable aspects of this equipment is it never gets sick or burnout leading to nearly zero downtime. These industrial material handling systems can easily collaborate with other robots and people to fulfill nearly any demand it is commanded to do.
Machine tending keeps the system running properly. This automation in material handling system gives control to the producer – seeing what goods are being used efficiently. One of the most important is how it services other robots.
With less injuries on site, productivity will skyrock. Automatic handling equipment lets employees move on to other sections of manufacturing, a combination of robots and AI will take over the most dangerous duties.
