PDA Engineering was contracted by a Fortune 100 company in the food service industry to automate a food production task in advance of launching a new product. Their current manual process was inefficient, time consuming, and not viable for mass production.   

The client, having worked with PDA Engineering before, asked us to design a multi-step mechanized assembly line with different modules (steps) that can perform the individual actions required to automate the task and free up the labor hours required by the manual process. PDA Engineering designed solutions that met the very strict specifications and requirements given.

We engaged the client with an interactive design process that resulted in PDA Engineering building a “Proof of Concept” machine to demonstrate the feasibility of the ideas generated. The machine successfully demonstrated that many of the proposed concepts would work at the mass scale (90 items a minute per assembly) and also exposed concepts that needed improvement before a working prototype could be developed.
