Bakery robots take on the heavy work

Monotonous and heavy work in the bakery makes it increasingly difficult to find employees. But traditional automation is too costly and inflexible when production only runs for a few hours a day. This project aims to overcome the challenge by installing mobile cobots in Marien bakery that can perform a range of tasks at various workstations.

Apart from providing a cost-efficient digital alternative to heavy manual tasks, the improved process control will increase food safety and reduce food waste. It will also generate jobs that are more attractive to bakery operators.

The project partners are F. van Wees Machine- en Stansmessenfabriek Waalwijk BV, an expert in digital technologies and automation integration in food production lines, and Mariën Bakkerij Producten N.V.
