Lights, Camera, Action!

BBC at Millitec
We were joined by Simon Ward from BBC East Midlands Today, and Sam from BBC Radio Derby, to learn more about our robots and see them in action.

Following reports that the government will be introducing a new "Points Based" system for immigration in the future, the food industry is, understandably, concerned about the risk to low skilled workers within their factories. One option to help overcome this, is the introduction of more automation and robotics.
Our sandwich robot, which launched just this month, is designed with this in mind. Replicating the size of a human on the production line, our robot "igene" can lid sandwiches at the same rate (or faster!) than a human!

Of course, this caught the attention of the local news, who were super excited to visit us and take a look at the robots lidding sandwiches!
