Vegetable Vending Machine

Vegetable vending machines are the robot vending machine that helps suppliers selling vegetables. The definition of robot selling vegetables is so wide and has never been put into a fixed consensus since the functionality of programmed autonomous is ever-changing in history.

Vegetable vending machines are vending machines that can automatically sell vegetables. There are beverage vending machines as well as coffee vending machines and egg vending machines. Vegetable vending machines are the robot vending machine that helps suppliers selling vegetables. The definition of robot selling vegetables is so wide and has never been put into a fixed consensus since the functionality of programmed autonomous is ever-changing in history. Suppliers of vegetable vending machines set those robots around parks, schools, amusement spaces all around to sell the beverages to the public.

Customers and Demands

Throughout history, the market shares of those machines are changing based on the consumers' feedbacks towards the food objects as well as the technology advancements, while vegetables are common food materials so this is very convenient for daily uses.

As a machine that brings commercial profits to its owners, vending machines are like capital machinery in many aspects, and just like the days of manual turning machines’ operation, once the vending mechanism was sold to people with the mechanical trigger and response mechanism. The mechanism could also achieve the vending goals by dropping the selected items after the consumers have inserted the stipulated number of coins and pressed the selection buttons on the vending machine items.

Reliability and Mechanical Structure

The old mechanical vending machines 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 insertion objects. On the other side, many mechanical vending machines did not offer the selected goods even if the consumers had inserted the stipulated coins due to many technical issues that happened all the time across many situations. 

When things happen, vending machine suppliers have to dispatch technicians all the time to solve the arguments as well as the loss around the spots and the costs were high, which often cannibalized the meager profits earned by the vending machines. This type of situation makes the use of vending not so popular.

From Manual to NC Operation

As the technology progresses when it came into the era of NC control in the machinery world, there are more sensitive sensors installed onto the buttons, coin slots, dropping channels, etc, so the whole situation has been improved for quite a good proportions. 

After this advancement in technology, there are total computer-controlled vending machines of various kinds of goods such as beverages, eggs, toys, etc. They are installed with sensors that support complicated inspection and checking movements and such a mechanism can offer accurate results to the consumers and give back the precision outcome to the suppliers. Meanwhile, these types of vending machines are limited to many physical settings of the machine, thus the types and options of goods are not in a broad variety of things.

Robotic Arms Installed within Vending Machines

To improve the high homogeneous essence of the vending machines, the importation of robots helps the situation and boosts the variety such as egg selling. In Taiwan, there are vending machine suppliers that develop beverage vending machines with robotic arms that process the complicated liquid management inside a designed case with the help of a robotic arm that can simulate human workers' actions like bartenders do. 

The vending machines with robotic arms can do a lot of mixing, blending, shacking, and other professional actions that were once all customized by human workers only since such complicated actions need to be trained and tuned with a series of training programs for a long time schedule. Today, with the beverage robots, all these things can be achieved inside the robot vending machines, and users only need to insert the adjusted programs of values to settle the whole things on, and the robots will do these all based on the orders of customers. These are the great advantages if the goods for sale are liquids, while if the goods are solid things such as eggs and vegetables, there are still other alternative options.

Hygiene Considerations

The innovative idea that utilized modern robotic arms to carry on all the selling processing procedures instead of human beings is a very advanced idea especially in the sense of hygiene considerations. The same principle also applied to egg selling, beverage selling, etc. Now as people are aware of the potential infection hazards, they tend to buy more canned foods rather than human-made fresh foods since the can suppliers may be more reliable in regard to the operational processes regarding the hygiene issues. But this situation is now overthrown, and with the agile robotic arms that can simulate human actions, the production of customized goods is now quicker and safer, and most of all, the expenses can be reduced for the suppliers to a great extent.
