AUTEC specializes in sushi-making robots, and their latest creation is claimed to make 200 sushi rolls or 2,400 nigiri rice balls per hour. This machine molds rice inside a rotating container and then pours it out flat in the form of various sheets where various ingredients can be added to the process to create different recipes. It can also wrap, cut, and then package the sushi so it’s ready to go. Read more for another video and additional information.
“The designers of the products say they are intended to be used alongside human chefs in cafeterias and chain restaurants. Automation is making its way into the food industry as restaurateurs and companies try to minimise costs and maximise efficiency,” reports The Daily Mail.
