The high-speed pancake stacking machine is made by Flexpicker Robots, and works its magic out of the Honeytop Specialty Foods headquarters in the UK. Implemented as a bid to reduce labor costs, the robot has the capacity to stack 450 pancakes a minute, improves cycle times by 20%, reduces turnaround times, improves workplace health and safety, and reduces material waste. Mind officially blown.
Watch the stacking machine in action in the YouTube video below.
