…that an automatic curry sausage maker named the "CurryMax" has been developed by a group of trainees?
The device ensures that sausages pass through every production stage correctly; they are
fried, sliced, dressed with a portion of sauce and then exit the sausage maker ready to be eaten.
Frying, slicing, sauce portioning.
Working alongside students from Saarland University of Applied Sciences (HTW), a group of Siemens trainees in Saarbrücken have developed the "CurryMax". Controlled by a Logo! logic module from the Siemens Industry Automation Division, every production step is correctly executed in turn: the sausage is initially heated by hot air blower. A slicing mechanism then cuts it into bite-sized pieces which drop onto a cardboard tray. This is then transported onwards on a small carriage and positioned under the sauce dispenser, where it is aligned precisely with the aid of photointerrupter.
A solenoid valve is used to distribute the sauce at the correct temperature over the sausage.
Using these processes, the "Curry-Max" delivers a ready-to-eat meal once every seven minutes – which is actually of very reasonable quality according to the test eaters.
