MakerLab@AT: #Automation&Food

How can you make your own personal chocolate coin? It's simple: design it, create the tools and produce it. It's as simple as that.

Well, single pieces are fine, but for mass production with high-quality appearance, you need something more. Automation technology, mechanical design and food processing technologies offer a potpouri of know-how that needs to be fused together to reach a level that meets industrial standards.

So why experiment at MakerLab@AT? I think it's obvious, because you can clearly show where you need the knowledge to avoid very obvious production errors. Mold flow analysis is one of them.

But CAUTION: Do not produce or eat any food if you are not sure that the entire production process as well as the materials and ingredients are certified for food.
