The Pick & Skewer installation is the automatic skewer machine with the very highest productivity. In some cases, just one logistics person is required to supply the installation with ingredients.
The ingredients are emptied into a hopper, which provides a buffer so that the system can operate autonomously for a certain period of time.
The vision technology provides exact positioning of the ingredients and communicates this to the robot(s). The specially designed software and grippers ensure a perfect traditional appearance and constant quality. (For example, the gripper can pick up a piece of meat lengthwise and skewer it in the same direction, and there is an option to select e.g. only to skewer the onions convex side up).
Once the skewer has been completed, it is laid on a conveyor belt and removed to a central point.
An additional operator may be required, depending on the number of different components and their types.
The HMI display and its menu provide simple controls for e.g. making another type of skewer; it includes instructions and other relevant information such as the productivity.
