The ABB Flexpicker robot stacks up to 400 pre-made pancakes a minute. ABB points out a new buffering feature that lets the robot adapt to inconsistent pancake flow by keeping a reserve, which is nifty to watch. According to HoneyTop Pancakes, who switched to the Flexpicker robots as a cost savings measure, the Flexpicker robot has, “enabled us to absorb a number of overheads.”
Apparently, the Flexpicker robot is the world’s fastest industrial robot and it’s not limited to pancakes. The Flexpicker is also used to sort all kinds of foodstuffs like sausages, muffins and croissants.
