RootFacts Cobots in Food and Packaging: Innovations (Cobots) Innovation through the Helping Hand of Collaborative Robots (Cobots) in Food and Packaging by RootFacts

In this modern world, we rely on our food and packaging sector to ensure that our everyday meals remain effective and safe for transport. A significant share of these tasks is manual, physically demanding as well as hazardous. And here is where the revolutionary technology of RootFacts Collaborative Robots (Cobots) comes into picture and completely changes how the operations in food processing are done.

Co-operation between humans and machines redefining Cobot

Unlike traditional industrial robots that work independently, cobots are smaller, lighter robots fitted with advanced sensors making them able to interact with human co-workers or their surroundings. This makes cobots suitable for food and packaging industries:

Being light weighted they can be easily moved from one task to another when need arises.

Simple Programming

Some models of cobot are designed such that they can be programmed by means of graphical user interface or voice command among other controls. However because it is not necessary since Cobots are flexible enough to fit into existing workflows without needing specialized robotic knowledge.

Improved Efficiency

Workers are freed from physically exhausting monotonous activities once automated robots take over. For instance some duties like quality control and surveillance have been assumed by robots.

Cobots’ Potential in Food Processing

As well as supporting various sectors within the food and beverage industry such applications include the following ones:

Food processing

Examples include repetitive tasks like selecting fruits and vegetables, filling containers, capping bottles, sorting products.


The greatest thing that has ever happened to automation is the use of cobots on packing lines.

These line jobs are aimed at boosting productivity while minimizing the risks of manual handling related accidents and they include product loading and unloading, palletizing, and labeling.

Quality Control

With vision sensors, cobots can be set up to scan products for manufacturing defects. This helps in reducing waste as well as maintaining product consistency.

Warehouse and Distribution

Cobots facilitate more accurate and efficient warehouse operations through automation of tasks like order picking, product movement and inventory control.
