Cold food vending machines are automatic vending machines that sell cold or frozen foods, termed as frozen vending machines or frozen food vending machines as well. Cold food vending machines are popular since the twentieth century as there are many spots all around the county areas where people have no access to convenient food sources.
Suppliers need electric cables and specific conditions well settled down in order to set their cold food vending machines in the spots so that those cold food vending machines can be useful to both buyers and suppliers, otherwise, if some issues are not well managed, such as if one cold food vending machine is not placed in the right place, then even if the cold food vending machines are working well, there may not have customers willing to buy foods from the machines.
In order not to lose the profits, suppliers will normally do some market survey for their spots before the settlement of their cold food vending machines. After the spots are well searched, they would set cold food vending machines around specific places in which people around that places may be willing to buy them, or say, need to buy those cold foods, such as parks, schools, universities, moving theaters, libraries, and amusement spaces all around to sell the cold coffees and cold beverages to the public and the market shares of those machines are changing based on the consumers’ feedbacks towards the cold drinking objects. That is why few of them will set a exclusive cold food vending machines but more like integrated cold beverage vending machines.
In recent years, since the trend pursuing for healthy drinks and fresh flavors has taken into the cold food markets as the main notion of eating and drinking, there are more and more healthy food vending machine suppliers who develop their own robotic arms as the platform that can serve fresh foods real time by doing them right after the buyers made their own decisions. Such brewer robots, and cold food vending machine robots, when they are under development, are quite agile in many scrutinizing stuff of the drinks, so that they are quite reliable to do more than one task by their robotic arms. The robotic arms of the cold food vending machines are installed with more than one tool, so that some may be used to hold the cups and some may be designed to push the inner buttons for different movements. This is much like the idea of tool changing mechanism of turning centers or other ATC mechanisms thereof. The working tools of the cold vending machines can be changed to other tooling options based on the lively situations.
The cold food vending machines with robots were sold to people with the mechanical trigger and respond mechanism, which could also achieve the vending goals by dropping the selected food types after the consumers has inserted the stipulated number of coins and pressed the selection buttons on the vending machines. However, these types of mechanical control mechanism were not reliable in many ways and consumers can get their wanted beverages even if they did not insert enough coins once if the machines mistakenly recognized the insertions as enough.
What is more irritating to customers is, sometimes many mechanical vending machines did not offer the selected itemseven if the consumers had inserted the stipulated coins and work the machines according to the instruction. This kind of troubles is caused due to many technical issues that happened all the time. With this regard, the vending machine suppliers has to dispatch technicians all the time to solve the arguments as well as the loss around the spots and the costs were many.
The lost caused by the technical issues may often cannibalize the meager profits earned by the machines in the past. But now with the computer programmed and online surveillance system, this type of problems are mostly solved since the controlling system is no more the analogical mechanical mechanisms but the chips that can do a lot more complicated movements by the programmed routes. After this, there is total computer controlled coffee vending machines that are installed with lot of accurate sensors that support complicated inspection and checking actions and such mechanism can offer the accurate results to the consumers and give back the precision outcome to the suppliers no matter what their choices is since the options are well managed by the robots.
There is many kinds of vending machine supplier in Taiwan that develops cold beverage vending machines installed with robotic arms which can process the whole complicated cold liquid management things inside a designed case with the help of a robotic arm that can simulate human workers actions like bartenders. Many of these robotic arms are driven basically by the BLDC motors and linear motors, so the activated linear motions or vertical movements are very smooth if one compared them with the traditional motor systems. With this stable basis, all the shakes, stirs, holds, etc, can be easily achieved without sudden unintended rushes or acceleration.
