Consider how fragile a sponge cake can be and how tedious moving them from the assembly line to their package over and over all day long. Well, if your company is in the business of doing this because your business is selling cakes, you had better figure out the best way to do it. Furthermore, you had better figure out the most efficient way to do it because you need to make a profit.
This is where the application of fluid power technology comes in. In the May 2012 issue of Hydraulics & Pneumatics, you will find a very interesting article titled Vacume system takes the cake. In this article, the author describes how a company by the name of Vaccon Co. Inc. figured it out. They devised a vacuum system to handle the sponge cakes without damaging them and without tedious hand labor. My guess is that employing this system is also very cost saving.
