    The implementation of these robots is brilliant. The commentor refering to it as “the final solution” on the other hand… oy vey! lol

    Awesome robot! …
    Awesome robot! Hopefully the workers will seize the factory. What would be better than a worker-owned pancake co-op? Not much!

    I don’t understand what’s wrong with using robots to replace humans in this kind of repetitive works. Shouldn’t that allow the blue-collar class to be entirely absorbed in the white one?

    I think the people commenting about the loss of possible jobs are crazy. The fact that a factory exists that produces pancakes is a testament to the quest for simplification creating more jobs. Its just the job that changes. I bet the ABBRobotics guys are happy they have a job

    As someone who doesn’t have anything to do with this field, it always astonishes me that something that appears so technologically complicated is cheaper than hiring people to do the same job. Impressive stuff, robotics chaps.

    So awesome. Stuff …
    So awesome. Stuff like this is long overdue. In fact, it’s a pancake factory. Why does it have workers at all?

    Extremely impressive integration. I’m glad someone is implementing technology that will help out companies like this.

    I see how it can improve health, safety & hygiene, but the people were manually checking the pancakes with their bare hands before they went to the robot!

    Anything that can be automated eventually will be. Hopefully we find jobs that are less mindless to replace them!

    There is a strict hand washing regime at Honeytop but they don’t use gloves

    When the video was taken the cooking process was still being developed so pre inspection of pancakes was highly manned and pancakes turned over to be inspected as well. Now the process is stable and results predictable so inspection is visual and by taking samples only off the line.

    The simple fact is that people are no longer prepared to do this kind of work because of the very high risk of developing Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI). Machines are the only viable long term solution.

    I am sure, sadalite, that you have written that comment with ink and in a piece of paper and sent it to youtube by mail, just so many people don’t lose their jobs: the postman, the librarian, the ink producer, etc..
    You are all a bunch of luddites!

    no, more …
    no, more specifically it means they fired people that used to do it and that f’n robot does the job now. And rich people wonder why no one is buying their products anymore. Because we dont have jobs!

    Decreased labor costs means they cut some workers’ paychecks to afford the robot.
