Drink vending machines are the general vending machines that can sell drinks as cold drinks vending machines or warm drinks vending machines to customers all around the corners. Drink vending machines are automatic vending machines that sell goods with automation. Drink vending machines are popular since the twentieth century as there are many spots all around the American county areas where people have no access to convenient food and drinks sources.
Suppliers of drink vending machines need electric cables and specific conditions well settled down in order to set their drink vending machines in the different spots so that those drink vending machines can be useful to both buyers and suppliers, otherwise, if some technical issues are not well managed, such as if one drink vending machine is not put in the right place, then even if the drink vending machines are working well, there may not have customers willing to buy drinks from the machines.
Suppliers know about how harmful a bad location to their business, so in order not to lose the potential profits, they will normally do enough market surveys for their drink vending machines’ spots before the settlement. After the spots are well researched, they would set drink vending machines around specific places in which people around that places may be willing to buy them, or say, need to buy those cold drinks. The demands, if well understood, would be quite a good opportunity, i.e. water and sport drink vending machines around basketball fields, construction sites, etc. The general potential places for vending machines are normally movie theaters, public parks, schools, universities, libraries, and some other amusement facilities all around the cities to sell the drinks.
There are mainly two types of drink vending machines: Warm drinks and cold drinks vending machines. It is important for suppliers to handle the temperature control of the corresponding beverages since the temperature issues concern a lot about the drink flavors and this will cause eventually to the final outcome of the business income. In recent days, since the trend pursuing for healthy drinks and fresh flavors has taken into the mainstream in the field of cold food markets, there are more and more healthy drink vending machines’ suppliers who develop their own robotic arms as the platform that can serve fresh drinks real time by doing them right after the buyers made their own decisions on the vending machines.
Those brewer robots are quite agile in many scrutinizing stuff for the material processing 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 drinks 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 automation mechanisms thereof. The working tools of the cold vending machines can be changed to other tooling options based on the situations in real time.
Robots installed on the drink vending machines are quire innovative for some fresh drinks production. 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 panels.
Nevertheless, 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 items even 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 too expensive to the investment.
