Smart Food Factory Summit

Join OAL at this year’s event, talk to our experts and get hands on with the new technologies that can help you tackle productivity, efficiency, and traceability in your food business. Learn how we’re using £4million of Innovate UK research projects to bring about a step change in food manufacturing performance using technologies including collaborative robotics, advanced vision, machine learning and big data.

These new technologies overlay onto our tried and trusted solution areas of dry materials handling, liquid processing, and packaging line control.

So, if you’re looking at a new dry materials handling system, yes we can speak to you about the practicalities of big bags and silos, but, you’ll also get to discover our cutting-edge APRIL Robotics Weighing Station for fully automated weighing with a collaborative robot.

Likewise, our experts will be on hand to share best practice advice around stopping label and date code errors and retailer code of practice compliance. But we can also show you how machine learning and big data can deliver the insights you need on the packaging line.

And, if you’re looking at cooking and cooling, discover how we’re combining our rapid steam Infusion cooking with cryogenic cooling to reduce food waste and preserve natural homemade flavours.

We can't wait to meet and discuss how powerful new digital technologies can impact your food business.

9:30am 9:30am

Peterborough KTN Agrifood Automation & Robotics Event

Join the APRIL Robotics team when we speak at the KTN Agrifood Automation & Robotics Event in Peterborough on Friday 4th July. 

We'll be speaking about how robotic based material handling and processing systems can deliver a major uplift in productivity for food manufacturers.

Event Information per Knowledge Transfer Network:

With world population predicted to reach almost 10 billion by 2050, there is a pressing need to boost the productivity of the agri-food sector while maintaining high sustainability standards and low environmental impact. This is one of the greatest challenges for the industry, especially when labour costs are rising. Automation and robotics are seen as one of the potential solutions for these challenges, and activities are underway that develop new platforms that could save time and costs, and reduce labour requirements.

KTN is organising two events that will feature a range of speakers from the agri-food industry presenting examples of ongoing projects and successful approaches. These events will address the needs of the arable, horticultural and livestock industries, as well as the food processing and manufacturing sector. This events will bring together experts to discuss industry needs, technological gaps, key enabling technologies such as robotics and autonomous systems, imaging technologies, sensors, and the Internet of Things.

To create…

  1.        A resource-efficient food manufacturing supply chain
  2.        A safe and secure manufacturing supply chain
  3.        An innovative, resilient food supply chain for 21st Century populations.
