Leading food tech, OAL, will showcase its innovative robotics and automation solutions at Foodex 2020.
In addition, the company, alongside its academic partner, the University of Lincoln, will present its patented cooking technology at the event being held at the NEC, Birmingham March 30-April 1.
Visitors will experience the technology of the future, including the latest advancements in materials handling using robotic technology and how artificial intelligence-based label and date code verification can replicate human vision to boost productivity and accuracy.
New developments include micro ingredient handling via the University of Lincoln’s latest project using cobots to replicate human operators. OAL will also discuss the larger system designed to automate minor ingredient handling.
Combining robotics and advanced automation, the APRIL Robotics Ingredient Handling system offers food manufacturers a flexible and scalable solution that delivers an accurate and cost-effective alternative to operators on the factory floor.
Also demonstrated on the stand is APRIL Eye, the world’s first artificial intelligence-based vision system for label and date code verification. Visitors will be able to see for themselves how the technology prevents the wrong date codes from entering the supply chain while maximising throughput. Running at speeds of over 1,000 packs a minute, the system ensures full protection of the production line without compromising on volumes.
Experts will also be on hand to explain how Steam Infusion’s patented technology can double production capacity and halve CIP time in the production of soups, sauces and dairy desserts to maximise productivity.
Visit OAL and the University of Lincoln in Hall 20, stand J219 at Foodex 2020, NEC Birmingham, UK, 30 March-1 April 2020 to find out more about the technology of the future and how it can help to improve your operations.
