Productivity Through Food Automation Machinery
Robots are often seen at the end of a line, palletising the finished food product. However, they are now being used to a far greater degree further down the processing line. Food automation is being employed for finishing and decorating food items, packing product into trays and boxes, as well as packing boxes into cartons and trays for delivery to the retailer. Operating within the food sector requires a separate set of skills to operating within the general manufacturing industry.
L.A.C. Conveyors & Automation has a specialist division designing robotic systems and automation plants specifically for the food industry, spanning production, processing and manufacturing sectors.
