Cooking Robot Business
We automate a series of cooking processes in the kitchens of major restaurant chains by highly integrating both hardware and software technologies. While maintaining the taste of the food and the quality of the hospitality, the system increases store productivity by reducing labor costs associated with the cooking process. This compact and highly efficient product can be installed in existing stores to reduce labor costs by one staff member, rather than reducing operations. The system can be adapted to a wide range of cooking methods and serving processes according to the customer's needs.

Business Robotics Business
Robots automate simple tasks that occur in central kitchens and food factories, such as sorting dishes after washing and serving food containing irregular shapes. This not only reduces workload and labor costs, but also maximizes the overall throughput of the facility and contributes to higher productivity.
