ABI LTD TO PREMIERE REVOLUTIONARY ROBOTICS AT BAKERY CHINA 2015
Concord, ON, Canada – For over 25 years ABI LTD has been a global leader in the manufacturing of bakery automation systems. At the Bakery China 2015 trade fair taking place in Shanghai, from May 12 – 15, 2015, ABI will proudly present two of its newest products.
“With the addition of robotics, advanced vision systems, and intuitive programming interfaces, ABI is uniquely positioned to bring bakery automation to the next level,” says Alex Kuperman, ABI LTD founder and president. “Working with our partners at ABB Robotics, SICK Sensor Intelligence, and KMT Waterjet, we are excited to share the power of these innovations with the global baking community.”
TAIA – Robotic Waterjet Cutting for Bakeries
Current cutting techniques lead to product waste, long cleanups, and limited designs. TAIA solves these issues by combining robotics and waterjet cutting – a true first for the baking industry. The system’s programmable user interface is touch-screen and exceptionally user-friendly, and allows for precise control of the system’s robotic arm and high-capacity waterjet. TAIA exists as a single cell or is easily integrated into existing product lines, and is designed for the precise cutting of cakes, pastries, and other food products.
TAIA is 20 times faster than its closest competitor, reaching speeds of up to 3000 mm/sec. It features pressures of up to 60,000 psi, allowing it to cut any cake to any shape. The interface features a library of preprogrammed designs, but also allows an operator to draw freehand or seamlessly import other designs.
Waterjet technology has revolutionized industries around the globe. By harnessing its potential in the baking sector, TAIA offers bakeries cleaner, more beautiful, more creative baked goods.
DF-7000 - Bagel Divider/Former
Bagel production lines ranging from 7,000 to 42,000 bagel/hour have been flagship products for ABI for close to 25 years. The upgraded DF-7000 system, however, has been modified for improved overall performance, increased durability, and easier access for cleaning and servicing. This system is capable of producing up to 7,000 bagels per hour and is the bridge solution for mid-size commercial bakeries looking to grow to full-size industrial capability. This machine can be integrated with new or existing end-to-end bagel make-up lines.
