MyAppCafé - Material Handling Coffee

Robot Barista von Kawasaki: MyAppCafé introduces fully automated Coffe-to-go Service

 

  • An innovative concept
  • High economic efficiency
  • Low personal costs

Order your morning latte macchiato conveniently via app from the bus, quickly scan the QR code and let the robot barista serve it fresh - MyAppCafé makes it possible with an automatic solution with a RS005L Robot from Kawasaki Robotics which is the centerpiece of the fully automated cell.

 

High economic efficiency and low personal costs

MyAppCafé delivers the whole concept - turnkey and automatically. The decisive goal during development was cost effectiveness: Each franchisee only needs to spend a maximum of one hour a day refilling and waiting, the rest is fully automated. MyAppCafé only needs to be refilled after around 650 issues - of course the system informs the operators in good time. An important argument for the fully automated gastronomy solution, says Michael Stille: "Almost no personnel is required, a maximum of one hour of working time for refilling and cleaning must be scheduled after 650 issues.

By comparison, four employees would be needed to provide the same service. With our robot Barista, you are in the profit zone much faster". The integrated fully automatic cleaning systems combine the highest hygiene standards with minimum effort.

A robot is the heart of the cell: The engineering office IBS has been a close partner of the international robot manufacturer Kawasaki Robotics for years. After reviewing and comparing several options, the choice for the robot quickly fell on Kawasaki - also by recommendation of IBS. The prototype as well as all further cells were built based on the Kawasaki Robotics RS005L.

With a maximum payload of 5 kg and a maximum reach of 903 mm, the RS005L is part of the universal R series for small to medium payloads, suitable for assembly, material handling, machine tending and many other applications. Its special design enables the high-speed robot to have a longer reach and an extended working range.

In addition to the technical aspects, the RS005L convinced Michael Stille with its appearance, which fitted well into the design of the cell:

We wanted to have a real industrial robot inside, not a 'toy'. And Kawasaki was very accommodating to us as a partner and through the quality of the robots.”
