A Strategy for Companies Embarking on Automation

Technology is continuously developing and improving production, especially within the food and beverage industry. Automations have increased within the last 20 years for a variety of reasons. A stark labor shortage, the need to enhance productivity to keep up with the booming industry, and new and needed safety conditions for employees are all possible factors to consider when incorporating automations. It comes down to how much time and money a company can realistically spend.

How does a food processing company decide when to include automation in their production and at what level?

On today’s episode of Calvary Robotics’ Advanced Automation podcast, host Josh Gravelle talks with Mathias Konne, Food Market Leader at STAÜBLI Robotics, about automation and best practices for companies interested in food and beverage applications.

The two discuss…

  1. Konne’s career history with B2B marketing, his experiences with working as a Food Market Leader, and an overview of STAÜBLI Robotics
  2. Step-by-step advice on integrating automation with food and beverage, and the early process that companies need to be aware of
  3. The stages and methods of the food and beverage industry, and how automation benefits each section

“Start with low hanging fruits,” Konne said. “Look at something that is going to be easy, not too complex. Get your feet wet. Get your people planted and on board with the new solutions and new technologies. Go for something that is safe and sturdy in terms of automation and technology. And then you’ll graduate from that first and then you can move on to the more complex.”

Mathias Konne is the Food Market Leader at STAÜBLI Robotics. Previously he was a Business Development and Marketing Coordinator for the same company. Konne has been a Brand and Project Manager, Marketing Communications Coordinator, and Marketing and Communication Assistant for EuroKera. He received a Bachelor’s Degree from Ecole Pratique Hautes Etudes Commerciales (EPHEC) and played on a college rugby team.
