|Project Summary||Project Information|
The burger shop is a classic staple of American cuisine, but the art of burger making hasn’t changed much in the past several decades. Every burger is on some level the same. Bread is used to surround a stack of other generally flat ingredients, including a patty, cheese, veggies, and condiments. This simplicity is most likely what has led to the its cult following, as almost any dish can be adapted into some form of burger. It is this simplicity we hope to leverage by automating the process of burger creation.
We hope by creating a burger assembling machine we can under cut the human burger assembler and create a cost effective substitute for minimum wage labor. To add to this machines appeal, modern technology will be applied in order for simple control, and total burger customization. The goal would be a generalized burger assembler capable of assembling any combination of the available ingredients. To take this one step further, the appeal of novelty foods has been on the rise, and we believe that a burger assembling machine could take advantage of this growing market through the use of a laser toasting printer. By creating custom burgers with toasted prints, the machine could create a memorable and attractive customer experience, while also allowing a high level of control and creativity by the operator to create totally unique burger experiences.
Project Statement: Automated burger machine with custom imaging to reduce cost and attract customers
