Mini Robots Package Coffee

Posted September 02, 2007 6:00 AM by Sharkles

Winning the first prize in Rockwell's Extreme Machine contest for its unusually small size (300 sq ft), this end-of-line robotic handling system stuffs 280 sealed plastic cups of ready-to-brew coffee into labelled cases for shipment. No humans are allowed inside this fast moving workcell!

And to think, money used to be thrown away on human beings doing the same thing. Now instead of paying 10 women $7/hr each, we pay 2 technicians $25/hr each and the fat cats keep the difference.

2 of the women marry the technicians and live better lives. the other 8 have to sell themselves to the local brothel where the fat cats visit every weekend.

Don't you love progress?
