Robots Make Their Way into the Food Processing Industries

For years, food processing industries have continuously aimed for improvement of their plants’ performance as well as reduction of their workshop’s costs and wastes. With increasing consumer demands on product changeovers and quick product redesigns, these facilities are now implementing automation and are gradually adopting robots for better plant efficiency.

Food processors now recognize robots to hold features compatible to their industries. With their flexibility and multi-tasking attributes to process several programs in their memory, switching from one task to another is simple and effortless. They can work for long hours, do not show unexpected actions that can compromise safety, and offer uniform movements ensuring product quality. These devices combined with advanced gripper technology supports reduction of product damage risks as well.

In five years time, Mitsubishi Electric predicts that more robots will be employed in food processing applications. Supporting this, the company has recently launched their latest family of robots, the F-Series, which targets food and other hygienic industry markets. These are built to meet IP67, allowing trouble-free cleaning of the arm and usage of safe HG1 food grade grease for lubrication. Investing on these highly effective machines offers return of investment and secures a company’s long-term future.

To keep your food production plant including processing equipment functioning safely and seamlessly, best-fit lubricants must be used. Check out the Industrial Lubricant’s wide range of food grade oils now. Learn more about our vast inventory by visiting today.
