Video: Salami Sorting Robot

Image credit: 

Disorganized salami goes in one end, robotic FlexPicker™ hands go to work, and neatly organized rows of perfect salami exit the machine. A control panel shows salami status at all times (strangely reminiscent of the shipping dock computer seen in season 2 of The Wire). This is all happening, right now, in Ansbach, Germany. Just keep thinking about that all day -- somewhere, robots are sorting your salami....

For more robotics videos, check out the ABB Robotics channel on YouTube. For example, do you want to see humans and robots working together to pack sausages? I thought you might.
