The world’s first Robotic hand scoop “SWITL”
The robotic technology finding itself in a rather unfamiliar area, Furukawakikou Co., Ltd has developed a robotic hand scoop “SWITL” which can scoop off and move gel type contents like mayonnaise or ketchup smoothly without destroying the shape or messing it up. Previous to this the process was handled manually, but with use of SWITL the process will be automated resulting in an improved production process.
The “SWITL” was developed base on a need for automated process for lining up bread dough at the factory which was handled manually before. “SWITL” is technology is patent pending and can apply not only in the food industry but also in wide different filed of applications. The company is planning to develop a new products implementing “SWITL” technology in a near future. Interesting idea indeed, I leave it to your imaginative mind to come up with the SWITL new applications.
