APRIL Robotic Weighing shortlisted for World Food Innovation Award

We are pleased to announce that our APRIL Robotics Weighing Station has been shortlisted for “Best Technology Innovation” in the World Food Innovations Award 2018.

It’s fantastic recognition of how much of an impact our highly innovative APRIL Robotic Weighing Station solution has on the way the food industry handles and processes ingredients.

Weighing out powders is a manual repetitive task that is highly susceptible to human error. The APRIL Robotics Weighing Station automates this task offering unrivalled accuracy and efficiency. The advanced torque force sensors within the collaborative robot allow us to weigh out ingredients to an accuracy of +/- 1g or 1% by weight every time, a level of accuracy unachievable by humans.

At OAL, we are passionate about using the very latest in innovative technological solutions, processes and applications to help sustain and secure the UK’s largest food manufacturing industry.

Customers have guided us with distinct requirements for each sector allowing each team to work as a focused fast moving group dedicated to their specific market. The OAL tradition of trust, fairness and investment in our people bonds our teams. We strive to keep our customers ahead and future-proofed by leading multiple R&D projects currently valued at £3.5 million aimed at developing tomorrow's tried and trusted.

The winner of this award will be announced on Wednesday 7th March 2018 at Hotelympia 2018, ExCel, London.
