OAL to Build New APRIL Robotics Production Facility

OAL are building a new state of the art facility to support their APRIL Robotics Systems in Peterborough, UK. The new facility supports a growing order book as food manufacturers seek to avoid rising costs in the UK and Europe through significant productivity improvements.

Currently, 529,800 people globally are associated with the common repetitive task of weighing dry “micro” ingredients. The APRIL Robotics Weighing System automates this task and when linked with APRIL Logistics, fully automates the ingredient and material management within factories.

The OAL team is rapidly accelerating the adoption of robots in food manufacturing as they focus on increasing productivity and efficiency in food factories by automating manual handling tasks. Harry Norman, Owner/Managing Director at OAL, explains more: “We’re committed to eliminating manual handling in the front end of food processing, and the new APRIL facility gives our team a great space to develop and demonstrate what that means for food manufacturers. We have a strong reputation for building large scale material handling projects, and advanced manufacturing software (OAL Connected) and the APRIL developments complement these thriving parts of the business.”

Food manufacturers will have a chance to learn more and see demonstrations at the factory opening on Thursday 18th January 2018. The opening will coincide with the “Food Manufacturing 2030” Conference which challenges food manufacturers to think and discuss how food production will change over the next decade.
