Home

Project Summary Project Information

The overall goal of this project is to improve Wegmans' marble cake swirling process by designing and building an automated machine for this process. The swirl pattern is currently made manually at a high cost. Since the production line is used to make several varieties of cakes, the machine will need to be portable and support varying pan sizes. The project is aimed to deliver a cake swirling machine that reduces Wegmans' production costs, improves the ergonomics of the production line and offers a long service life.
