Apex Motion Control enters the bread industry thanks to the Baker-Bot Max as well as cookie decoration.

Quick hits:

  • Baker-Bot Max handles a 20kg payload.
  • One Baker-Bot 5 can be used to cut and place cookies as well as decorating with a different nozzle.
  • Baker-Bot 5 uses an air vacuum to pick up and move cookies without deforming them.

Hi, I'm Rob Antonides with Apex Motion Control. I'm the president and founder. This year show we're showing off the Baker-Bot Max which can lift 20 kilogram payloads. And what this allows us to do is get into the bread industry which uses very heavy pans. And we can repurpose this robot for many different tasks. So the task we're showing here is tray handling but we can also use the same robot and repurpose it for pallets as well.

And palletizing has been a huge thing for us this year. We're also featuring cookie production and we're showing the Baker-Bot stamping cookies as well as decorating cookies and we've been able to assure great savings and labor. So here we would have a dough extruder sheeting some dough and then we stamp the cookies–five across at a time, using vacuum to pick it up.

And normally we'd place it on a baking tray here. The same robot can do that on Monday and then on Tuesday we can change the tool and it can be decorating the cookies.
