Food Automation Solutions


Productivity Through Food Processing Automation Machinery

Here at L.A.C. Conveyors & Automation we provide a range of robotic and automation solutions for the food industry, all with bespoke solutions. Our food automation solutions are all designed, manufactured, tested, and delivered in-house with a completely bespoke design to your business needs.

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 processing 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. We have a specialist division designing robotic systems and automation plants specifically for the food industry, spanning production, processing, and manufacturing sectors.

We’ve got a range of success stories from implementing our automation techniques with robotic procedures such as our robotic pick and place cell for the fresh food industry and an automated system combined with a stainless-steel belt conveyor system for an improved process of butter tub checking.
