The event

Many food production processes, especially in small and medium-sized enterprises, are still performed manually and have an impact on the health of staff members, e.g. due to monotony or heavy loads. However, robotics do not stand in competition with manpower –  at least in the food and beverage industry. Moreover, robotics aim to provide support (e.g. with cobots) beyond assisting with dangerous and unattractive work, particularly process steps that are still performed and controlled by humans only. Across the entire supply chain of the food industry, robotics can support (e.g. handling) or even undertake (e.g. cutting, joining, dosing, [...]) certain processing steps and therefore increase product and delivery reliability. The session highlights opportunities of robotics in food production.
