This is a popular option for health care facilities and hospitals allowing fresh meals that can be served 24/7.


Not only can we use robots for food production and handling, but companies such as KiwibotKiwibot also use robotics for delivering food. Three types of robots are used; one to take orders, a semi-autonomous tricycle in which orders are sorted one Kiwibot to deliver the orders. It can carry around four to five orders at once and the company claims an average delivery time of 27 minutes. Kiwibot mainly services University Campuses such as Berkely and UCLA. According to Mckinsey Mckinsey 80% of parcels will be delivered by autonomous vehicles in the next decade.

Industrial automation

Production Automation is the process of automating processes within an operational setting. Its main goal is to improve the efficiency of labor and the quality of finished products to create conditions for the optimum utilization of all production resources.

Production Automation and Plant automation continue to move on an upward trend going into the new decade. The prediction for the global industrial automation market is an increase from US$157 billion in 2018 to about US$297 billion by 2026, growing in excess of 8% annually.

Production Machines can help you to achieve efficient workflow, labor use, and allocation of resources. Custom machines that are built to fit a company’s operational needs can improve production for either a specific department or their entire plant. Here are just some of the machines that are included in the automation process.

Cutting Machines

Automated Cutting Machines allows producers to increase their output of material while ensuring that the material is to the precise measurements and quality for each project. For example, a Flying Cuttoff Machine eliminates any stop in the production process, allowing the material to be continuously and accurately cut without any errors. Cutt offs cut material or completed shapes into a predetermined length without creating any stop in motion on the shop floor.

BP Automation was able to save one company thousands in costs with this Corian Cutting System which made manual cutting history by eliminating the need for set-up, cutting, and gluing and clamping. It took cutting time from 210 minutes to 1.5 minutes.

Food Processing Machines

The use of production automation in the food and beverage industry helps to produce quality products for increased demands. According to a survey from the Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, 94% of food packaging operations are using robotics already. As for food processing, approximately a third of companies are using robotics.

A food processing mixer which helps to assist in keeping food mixtures in a homogenous state while filling jars. BP Automation designed and fabricated a mixer that would continuously lift, mix, stir and compact the food in a uniform manner created consistency and reduced labor.
