Unifiller Systems Inc., a subsidiary of the Linxis Group of Companies and portioning equipment’s global leader expressed its excitement about working with Apex Motion Control to demonstrate the Baker-Bot on its cake decorating systems. Baker-Bot, one of the latest innovations in the bakery automation, is a flexible robotic bakery assistant that can integrate into any new or existing cake line easily.
The Baker-Bot possesses numerous benefits for baking plants and bakers seeking to add an additional set of tireless hands. With its user-friendly interface, one can program it specifically to address bakery’s concerns. It can be set up to load and unload pans on the conveyors and baking racks, deposit flowable products, decorate cakes and pick and arrange items precisely without any breaks.
Apex’s Director of Sales and Marketing, Martin Riis, stated that the progress and demand for equipment that help in automating labor-intensive and repetitive tasks are flourishing for years. With the new industry challenges, both bakery and food manufacturers are working in shifts with limited resources and labor to deliver their products to the customers. The requirement to automate processes like decorating a cake in efficient, hygienic, and safe ways has grown to a greater extent. While adding versatility and working without supervision, Baker-Bot addresses all these concerns.
As per Unifiller Systems’ Director of Marketing, Sonia Bal, the organization is happy to team-up with Apex Motion Control on this solution. Considering the COVID-19 situation, robotics is a trending topic right now, she claimed. Automated solutions can address the problems of finding labor and social distancing. Robotics can be complicated, but this design of a collaborative robot (cobot) makes it seamless to integrate and use. The solution is not just innovative, but perfect for an ideal customer where amount capabilities need to be assessed properly. She called it an exclusive solution for a unique customer.
The cobot was designed to optimize labor and hence can be adapted for various tasks with swift tool change-over. It adds to the Unifiller's cake production portfolio like ACIS or SKIL, as it can efficiently border-ice and drizzle cakes for a striking finish.
